A regular weekday morning in our household – we wake up on time but leave late. We race down the stairs and out the door, only to realize that I didn’t grab anything for me to eat. Micah had breakfast, of course, and that’s part of the reason why we’re running late. I look across the street and the Dunkin’ Donuts sign just seems to be a light in the darkness of my dilemma. We drive across the street and sit in the line in the drive thru. Depending on how long the line is, we’ll stick it out in the drive thru or run inside for a moment to grab our goodies. Micah demands getting a strawberry frosted doughnut, and if I don’t get it, it is very likely that he will have a full-out tantrum, and who has time for that when we’re running late? So I grab him his strawberry frosted doughnut, and I grab a large hot chocolate and pumpkin muffin (Have you tried those things? They’re heaven in a muffin!). We race back to the car, and drive off to Micah’s school, munching on our goodies along the way. Although I have been going to Dunkin’ Donuts for years (I love the Coolattas!), Micah and I have been addicted to going there since our move nearly a year ago!
This weekend, we visited Dunkin’ Donuts more than I care to admit. It’s been freezing cold these past couple of days, and the Dunkin’ Donuts hot chocolate has been my beverage of choice. I didn’t go shopping on Black Friday, but I couldn’t pass up going to Dunkin’ Donuts early in the morning. We needed a little pick-me-up from all the eating we did on Thanksgiving. Most Dunkin’ Donuts shops open before 6am – ours opens at 4:30am! And hey, today is Cyber Monday – you could definitely get your Holiday shopping completed with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate from Dunkin’ Donuts!
If you go to Dunkin’ Donuts regularly (and even if you don’t), you might be interested in the Dunkin’ Donuts DD Perks® Rewards! The loyalty program launched back in January, and you can earn points toward free Dunkin’ Donuts beverages! With DD perks, you earn five points for every dollar you spend when you pay with an enrolled Dunkin’ Donuts Card or via the Dunkin’ Mobile® App. DD Perks rewards you for every purchase and every Dunkin’ run! When you accumulate 200 points, you receive a coupon for a free beverage of your choice!
In June 2014, the DD Perks Rewards program surpassed one million members. As a way to say “thanks a million” to its loyal guests, Dunkin’ Donuts celebrated by automatically depositing 100 bonus points directly into the accounts of all existing DD Perks members and offered 100 bonus points to new members for a week. Wish I had known about DD Perks then! I would have definitely liked to have 100 bonus points!
From December 1-5, 2014, enroll in DD Perks® via the Dunkin’ Mobile App using promo code “BLOG” to get a $5 virtual DD Card applied to your app upon enrollment! That’s a free $5 to spend at Dunkin’ Donuts!
