The Great American Eclipse is almost here. On Monday, Aug. 21, millions of Americans will have a chance to view the first total solar eclipse visible on the U.S. mainland since 1979.

The eclipse has created a huge buzz, and you can celebrate by enjoying one of the following deals:

Krispy Kreme. For the first time ever, the famous doughnut maker will offer a chocolate version of its iconic Original Glazed Doughnut. The treat will be available on Aug. 21, but you can get a sneak preview during evening Hot Light hours on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 19-20.

Go to Krispy Kreme’s eclipse page to find out when the Hot Light is on at your local store.

Denny’s. This restaurant will celebrate the eclipse by offering $4 all-you-can-eat buttermilk Mooncakes. These moon-shaped pancakes will be available on Aug. 21.

U.S. Postal Service. The U.S. Postal Service has issued a Total Eclipse of the Sun Forever Stamp to mark the eclipse. The stamp is the first to use thermochromic ink, which reacts to the heat of your touch. According to the Postal Service:

Placing your finger over the black disc on the stamp causes the ink to change from black to clear to reveal an underlying image of the moon. The image reverts back to the black disc once it cools. The back of the stamp pane shows a map of the eclipse path.

Get a sheet of 16 stamps for $7.84 right now at the U.S. Postal Service website.
