Today, Thursday, Jan. 14, you can get a dozen Original Glazed Doughnuts at Krispy Kreme for $4.99 at all participating shops in the U.S. (call your local store to confirm participation). That's a pretty sweet discount, as a dozen Krispy Kreme doughnuts usually goes for about $8, depending on your location. It'll help make up for some of the money you spent on Powerball tickets, right? (That's definitely how math works.)

No coupon is needed to take advantage of the $4.99 deal. Simply ask for the discounted dozen doughnuts at the register, then feel the warm, delicious, iced carbs return the optimism to you soul. Take heart — the Powerball comes and goes, but doughnuts? Doughnuts are forever.
