Free stuff you can get if you’ve been vaccinated: Krispy Kreme, White Castle and more

April 26, 2021

Across the nation, millions of Americans experienced the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, there is a growing sense of normalcy as more COVID-19 vaccines become available.

As more and more people receive the coronavirus vaccine, companies want to reward those who've gotten all their shots with special deals. Here is a list of companies that are providing free offers when you show your vaccination card, culled from a list compiled by CNN Business.


Krispy Kreme is offering a free glazed donut to anyone who flashes their vaccination card at locations nationwide. The promotion will run "anytime, any day, every day for the rest of the year," Krispy Kreme chief marketing officer Dave Skena said.

When receiving your treat, no purchase is necessary. Krispy Kreme doesn't want to offer this deal to its customers. The doughnut company is also offering up deals for employees who seek out their COVID-19 vaccination.


Budweiser is rewarding anyone (21 and older) with a free round of beer if you show proof that you've received your full COVID-19 vaccination. There's no purchase necessary.

To get your free beer, just go to and you'll be asked to upload proof of your vaccination – which is taking a selfie with a vaccination card or sticker.


White Castle has announced that the company will be giving a free dessert-on-a-stick to anyone who has received a vaccine “to celebrate customer vaccinations and the promise of brighter days ahead.”

Through May 31, anyone with proof of vaccination can get one of four versions of the dessert on a stick. Food lovers don’t have to purchase anything.


Staples and Office Depot want to make sure Americans do not lose their vaccination cards. The companies are offering free laminating services for those who completed their vaccination cards.
