Disclosure: I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Dunkin’ Brands. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
I have been a Dunkin Donuts fan for as long as I can remember. The only time I ever drank coffee in my life – during college – was from Dunkin’ Donuts in Shillman Hall (or any of the other FIVE locations on campus) at Northeastern University in Boston. Light and sweet. Usually during finals period to get me through some awful 8AM classes my senior year. Always paired with a couple of chocolate munchkins.
I didn’t stick with coffee – I was more of a soda drinker – but I always, always have loved their hot chocolate. When hubs and I first started hanging out back in 2006, it was in the early weeks of Autumn and a Dunkin’ Donuts had just opened up near Eastern Market. It was a few short blocks from his apartment, and I remember one night when a bunch of us were at trivia, we decided we wanted to hit up Dunkins’ so we asked if anyone else wanted to come along and then just sort of jetted out. We still claim it was our love of Dunkin Donuts that brought us together.
Recently, I was jones-ing for a hot chocolate (with skim milk and whipped cream – try it. i dare you, it’s my favorite) – the Dunkins’ in Annapolis aren’t super convenient to me – so hubs brought me a pick me up. My colleagues chuckled at my giddiness, “you’re such a northerner” they said – as if that’s a bad thing. I have more reason to go to Dunkin’ Donuts as of late though….
…My love of Dunkin’s was recently renewed when I heard they launched their own loyalty program earlier this year. DD Perks rewards customer loyalty with points towards every dollar spent. Currently, guests can earn 5 points for every dollar spent when you pay using an enrolled Dunkin’ Donuts card either plastic or via the ever so easy and super convenient app (you can also enroll with a plastic card) which Hubs and I are both huge fans of. Once you accrue 200 points (you get 5 points for every $1 spent) you earn a FREE beverage of choice. I sense a few free hot chocolates in my future.
