This Thursday, June 20, 2024, is the Summer Solstice – aka the official kick-off of the summer. And Krispy Kreme is turning on their red light and heating things up with a half-off Happy Hour, $1 BOGO dozen doughnuts, and a special “summer surprise” for select guests. The surprise is more doughnuts, by the way.

“We can’t think of a better way to celebrate summer’s official start than some sweet deals on our iconic Original Glazed dozens,” said Dave Skena, Global Chief Brand Officer for Krispy Kreme, via press release.

Let’s go in chronological order. Starting today and running through Wednesday, June 19, from 5-7pm local time during the hours when the brand turns on their red-hot Hot Light (aka, the light that shows they’re baking the fresh doughnuts), you can get 50% off on an Original Glazed dozen.

Then, on Thursday, June 20, all day long Krispy Kreme celebrates the start of summer with a buy one for the regular price, get a second one for $1 Original Glazed dozen. And not only that, some lucky guests will get an Original Dozen, totally free. Will that count towards their $1 BOGO? Probably not! They’re not just giving away doughnuts here! Oh wait, they are!

Per the above text, you can probably figure out that these deals are available in the store. And they are, with a limit of two dozen per customer. Meaning a potential of four dozen, total, including the promo. They’re also available online with a limit of one dozen per customer. Meaning, two dozen total, including the promo. To take advantage of the Hot Light Happy Hour promo online or in the app, use promo code HOTNOW. And on Thursday, you can use code SUMMER.

There you go! Hot lights, hot summer, hot doughnuts. What could be better than that?
