Is there a better way to start your day than with a fresh, sweet, and satisfying doughnut? Actually, there is: When that delicious doughnut is completely free.

On Friday, June 7, several chain doughnut shops are offering customers a smattering of fried dough delicacies for absolutely free in honor of National Doughnut Day. 

Fun Fact: The Salvation Army actually started this "holiday" to honor the "Donut Lassies" who served American soldiers the European delicacy during World War I. 

So consider it your American duty to snag one of these freebies whilst out and about this Friday. After all, saving a few bucks always makes the treat or reward extra worth it.
