Dunkin’ Donuts – DD Perks

Are you the type to grab a coffee every day? Do you like freebies and savings? If so, you might want to check out the Dunkin’ Donuts loyalty program, DD Perks.

Through the DD Perks program, members will receive exclusive coupons and discounts every week. They also earn points on every dollar spent, which can later be redeemed for free drinks of any size. You can’t argue with free!

How does the DD Perks program work?

The DD Perks program is available online and as a mobile app. It’s free to sign up and you’ll receive your first offers right away, including a free drink just for joining! After you’ve signed up, use the app to make purchases and start earning points!!

How do DD Perks points work?

Users earn points on every purchase made at Dunkin’ Donuts through the app or with an enrolled DD Card at a rate of five points per dollar. Once you’ve accumulated 200 points, you can redeem them for a free beverage of any size on your next visit.

Some of the weekly DD Perks offers also include opportunities to earn bonus points, typically for the purchase of a certain type of item. The January 2021 bonus offers members double the points on any purchase of the Southwest Veggie Power Breakfast Sandwich, the Beyond Sausage Breakfast Sandwich, or any Medium Oatmilk Latte (Hot or Iced). These items are all from the plant-based menu, but please be aware that some options are not vegan unless modified.

Does DD Perks offer a sign-up bonus?

Yes! First-time users of the Dunkin’ Donuts Perks app will get a free drink when they sign up.  The free drink offer is valid for 30 days.

Does DD Perks offer a birthday reward?

Yes!  Rewards members get a free drink on the birthday used to register the account. Didn’t add your birthday on sign-up? No problem! You can add it to your profile through the app or website at any time. The birthday beverage offer is only valid for 7 days, don’t miss it!

Are there any other benefits?

If you are a frequent customer at Dunkin’ Donuts, you’ll enjoy saving money each week with the exclusive discounts, members-only offers and special offers.  DD Perks members can also use the app to order ahead and skip the line, no more morning rush.

How do you join?

You can become a Member of the DD Perks program using the app (available on iOS and Android) or on the Dunkin’ Donuts ​website​. You’ll need to provide some basic information to get started including your name, email, phone number, and zip-code. Users can optionally provide their birthday to take advantage of an additional free drink offer on their birthday.

How do you check your points balance?

You can find your current point balance at the bottom of any receipt, or under your account in the app and on the website. If you have recently contacted support to claim points from a purchase not made through your account, it may take a few days for your balance to reflect the addition.

Can you add points later if you forget at the checkout?

If you left your phone at home and don’t have your DD Card, you can still claim the points from your purchase with your receipt by contacting Customer Care via email or phone to have the points manually added to your account.

How do you redeem points?

Users will receive a reward coupon in-app or online for a free single-serve beverage of any size for every 200 points earned. These coupons are limited to one coupon per customer per visit.

Do points expire?

Points can only expire after a member doesn’t make a qualifying purchase with their app or DD Card for six months.

Coupons do expire and on a much shorter time frame. Birthday beverage reward coupons expire in 7 days. Other beverage reward coupons, like the ones you receive every 200 points, expire in 30 days. Reminder emails will be sent about beverage reward coupons seven days before they expire.

Getting the most out of DD Perks

Looking to get the most out of DD Perks? Here are four simple things you can do to maximize your points and rewards:

Take advantage of weekly discounts and special offers

The Members-only discounts and offers are worth checking out each week. Even if your favorite items aren’t on offer it can be a great way to try a new thing, save money, and earn rewards! Offers frequently include desserts and sides as well, so it’s easy to add on to your order and earn some extra points.

Use your coupons before they expire

While you only have a week to claim your birthday drink, your regular drink coupons are good for 30 days after you’ve earned them. The program will send you a notification seven days before your drink coupon expires, so keep an eye out for that, and don’t let your hard-earned points slip by!

Look out for bonus points events

If there’s an opportunity to increase the points earned on every dollar spent, take it! Bonus point events are not guaranteed but seem to take place about once a month. Keep an eye out for these offers on the app or in your inbox to be sure you don’t miss out!

Claim your freebies

This might seem obvious but especially when it comes to the birthday drink, it can be easy to miss out. If you want to get the most out of the program, take the time to claim your freebies! You can even order ahead so you don’t have to wait to pick them up.

What are the members saying?

Both the app and the program itself have been positively reviewed as straightforward and easy to use. The app maintains a rating of 4.7/5 stars over nearly 398 thousand reviews.

Some users report technical issues on the app store, but online reviews don’t reflect this. If you do have issues with the app, the program is available through the website as well, and points can be added to your account for any transactions made without the app by contacting Customer Care by phone or email. A DD card can also be enrolled under your account and used to make purchases in place of the app.

Conclusion

If you’ve got a Dunkin’ Donuts in your area, you should try DD Perks. Even if you don’t find yourself a frequent shopper, the points add up quickly, and you get a free any size drink just for signing up, and another if you add your birthday to your account. Even if you’ve never been to a Dunkin’ Donuts, that’s two free drinks just for signing up!
