Dunkin’ Donuts Perks (How To Get Free Coffee From Dunkin’ Donuts)

We’ll have that one together and we’ll sometimes go out for it. We call that a “coffee party” and just enjoy each other’s company.

Coffee can do that. It brings people together.

It also can turn into free coffee if you sign up for the DD Perks program, Dunkin’ Donut’s free loyalty program. You earn 5 points for every dollar you spend on qualifying purchases when you pay with your enrolled Dunkin’ Donuts card. You can either carry a card around with you or you can just pay via the Dunkin’ Donuts mobile app (which is what Pete and I do).

When you get 200 points (which is spending $40), you get a free any-size beverage; you get a free any-size beverage when you join and on your birthday; plus you get member-only bonus points offers loaded to your account (making it easier and cheaper to earn your free beverage). In fact, I just opened my app and I have an offer for double points when I purchase iced coffee after 2pm. The offer is valid through May 1, so I don’t need to run out for it. I can wait until we have a coffee party. 

To join, go to and fill out your information. Even better, now through April 21, you can enter the code STARS when you join to get an automatic 125 points towards your free any-size beverage. That’s over halfway towards your free drink. But it gets better. Users who enter that card will also get an additional 125 points with each of their next two purchases at Dunkin’ Donuts. That makes it so much easier to get free coffee — or whatever you like to drink. You can choose any size single serve hot or iced coffee, tea, latte, hot chocolate or Coolatta®. Your freebie excludes all bottled cooler beverages and Box O’ Joe and Gallon containers.

What I also love about the program is that in addition to bonus points offers, having the app will also get you offers on products. You do need a smart phone to access the app, but if you have one, you’re in luck. Offers can vary per member (Pete and I both have the app and don’t always get the same offers).
