    Krispy Kreme Doughnuts is offering a dozen glazed doughnuts to customers for $.78 cents, with the purchase of another dozen of the customer's choice. The promotion comes in time for the company's 78nd birthday.

    Food lovers will be able to take advantage of discount prices this coming weekend. 

    On Friday, Krispy Kreme doughnuts will be offering a dozen of its famed glazed doughnuts for $.78 cents when customers buy any other dozen doughnuts at the full price. The promotion is in celebration of the company's 78th birthday. The North Carolina chain was founded in 1937 and now has stores internationally. 

    If that doesn't leave sweet tooths satisfied heading into the weekend, 7/11 convenience stores will be holding their annual "Free Slurpee Day" Saturday to mark July 11. 

    Chick-fil-A is also joining in on the giveaways, but the chain's offer comes with a catch. Customers can get a free meal on Tuesday, July 14, but only if they dress up as a cow. The 11th annual event will celebrate the company's 20th anniversary of the "Eat Mor Chikin" cow campaign.
