If you're like me, a cup of coffee each morning is a necessity to get you going. Sometimes I need 2 or 3 depending on the day, but a majority of the time I stick to one. I've tried everything to brew my coffee *just right* however most times my coffee just doesn't taste as satisfying as the coffee I get from Dunkin Donuts.
This might just be the New Englander in me coming out (I used to live in Rhode Island, and Dunkin was a daily part of life there)
In this article I'll explain how to maximize your dollar using the Mobile Dunkin Donuts App.
- Download the Dunkin Donuts App: I have an iPhone, and I was able to easily and quickly download the App from the App Store. It's free, there's no purchase required.
- Get a Gift Card: You'll need a gift card to link to your account. If you'd like an actual card, you will have to enter the card numbers into the app to sync the two so you're able to earn rewards points with your purchases. If you'd like to get a virtual card, you can purchase one through the app itself.
- Add money: You can add money in the store or through the App. The App requires you add in larger increments, however in the store you can just add $5.00 if you'd like or less, there's no minimum/maximum.
- Make Purchase: If you look in the DD Perks section you get special coupons, free beverage coupons, and you will also be notified of specials that don't require a coupon.
EARNING POINTS:You will earn a free beverage on your birthday which will be mailed, emailed, or sent to your app. Once you use the code it cannot be used again.
For every 200 points you earn you will get a free beverage (any size, any drink)
In my experience, sometimes the opportunity to earn bonus points appears (for example, earn an extra 25 points when you make a beverage purchase today). If I was going to do it anyway, that's an added bonus for me, and I'll use the coupon. I always check my perks before I head out.
Another way I am currently saving is through September 27th all of the dark roast coffees (hot or iced) are only .99! I was notified of this special through my app, there's no maximum number of times for this deal, it's a special they are running through the 27th. Typically my large coffee is $2.47 so that is a substantial savings for my daily coffee, and I'm still earning points towards my beverage at the same time!
If you spend money at Dunkin' Donuts anyway, I HIGHLY recommend the app because you'll be putting that money to an additional use = free coffee!
