If your March Madness support turns out to be a buster, there are still plenty of ways to win. As the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament officially kicks off, Krispy Kreme is on a mission to make March the sweetest month of the year for basketball fans, the beloved donut chain is handing out free donuts for a few days only.

Scoring free donuts is simple. Guests simply need to stop by any participating Krispy Kreme location and show proof of a busted or booming stand to receive a free Original Glazed Donut. Making the deal even sweeter is the fact that you don’t have to be a basketball fan to score the deal. In fact, guests can show any kind of support to receive their free donut. The March Madness free donut giveaway lasts Thursday, March 24 through Sunday, March 27. During this time, donut lovers can score a free Original Glazed each day, with the offer only available in-store and drive-thru.

The free original glazed donut is just one of two deals Krispy Kreme has going on in the middle of March Madness. Fans who join Krispy Kreme Rewards can get one dozen original glazed donuts for just $1 with the purchase of one dozen at regular price. This offer now lasts until Monday, April 4. This offer is valid in-store, at the wheel and online with the Krispy Kreme app. There is a limit of four in-store and one online for this offer. A full list of participating locations for both offers can be found by clicking here.

While the original glazed donut may be a staple menu item, any Krispy Kreme lover knows that the menu offers plenty of ordering options. The donut chain offers many classics like Glazed Chocolate Glaze and Glazed Chocolate Sprinkle Glaze, Glazed Chocolate Cake and Cinnamon Sugar, plus many other options. Krispy Kreme offers several filled donuts, such as Glazed Raspberry Filled, Chocolate Iced Custard Filled, Glazed Lemon Filled, and Powdered Strawberry Kreme. The menu also includes options such as Reese’s Classic Donut, Oreo and Kreme Cookies, and Apple Donut.

Krispy Kreme allows customers to accompany their donuts with a drink. The chain’s beverage menu includes lemonade and strawberry coolers, several coffee infusions, and specialty coffees like cappuccino, caramel mocha latte, and several iced and frozen coffees.
