Every year we all make the same New Year’s resolutions and we break them in the first week, like always! We need to face the facts. We are not going to give up our Dunkin’ Donuts coffee. This year let’s try something different. Lets make a resolution not give up our breakfast routine, but to buy it smarter. There is no need to put an end to our Dunkin’ addiction I promise 🙂 !
One of the reasons I have a Dunkin’ Donuts addiction is because the Dunkin’ Donuts full menu, including breakfast items, are available all-day long. Truthfully, I am late for everything. I never get a chance to eat breakfast at a traditional time. Between everything going on in my morning routine, some days I’m lucky if I find a few Cheerios left over in a baggie to dull the hunger pain until I can make my normal Dunkin’ Donuts run. I might truly die if I had to give it up.
I mean what’s a life worth living with out the Chicken Apple Sausage Breakfast Sandwich which, by the way is back starting 12/28 for a limited time! If you haven’t tried one, the Chicken Apple Sausage Breakfast Sandwich is a unique breakfast sandwich option available any time of day. It’s so much better than the traditional muffin sandwich.
The Chicken Apple Sausage Breakfast Sandwich is made with a juicy split chicken sausage seasoned with spices and real apple, along with egg and reduced fat cheddar cheese served on an oven-toasted English muffin. Coming in at a solid 350 calories and 24 grams of protein, this breakfast sandwich will fit right in with your weight loss New Year’s resolution that I am sure you made as well. This is seriously my ultimate favorite breakfast sandwich, especially paired with a french vanilla iced coffee! I could eat one morning, noon and night!
If you haven’t had the pleasure of trying one of these delicious sandwiches yet, this is your chance to check it out FREE! Stick around for the chance to win a $25 mGift card giveaway at the bottom of the post. If you have never heard the term mGift Card before, let me explain. mGift Cards are Dunkin’ Donuts gift card that is sent through the Dunkin’ Mobile App (available FREE on Android or the App store).
This brings me to the number 1 way to save at Dunkin’ Donuts:
1.Sign up for DDPerks!
If you haven’t signed up for DDPerks, you’ll definitely want to do that! You get a FREE beverage when you sign up for DD Perks, another one on your birthday, and another anytime you earn 200 points ($1 = 5 points). This is a great way to be rewarded for the money you are spending anyway.
2.Download the Dunkin’ mobile app.
With the Dunkin’ Mobile App you can manage your DD Perks rewards right from your phone, get / send virtual DD Cards (like when you win the $25 mGift Card) and score exclusive monthly deals that let you save on your favorites with a tap of your finger.
Another great thing about the app. is it helps keep me on budget. I just reload my virtual card in the app. with a certain amount of money and once I hit my cap I know that’s my budget for the week . I am also super forgetful and it’s so convenient to just be able to pay with my phone if I forgot my wallet (which tends to happen more than I would like to admit).
3. Buy a refillable mug.
Purchasing a refillable mug it will cost you less than $10. Buy any Dunkin’ Donuts mug and refill with your favorite coffee, iced coffee, or hot chocolate for one low price. Refills in my area are $0.99, but do vary from free to $0.50 off/refill in different places. Check with your local store for more details. If you order one coffee a day that’s a savings of $8.40 week, (using $2.87 for large coffee) and more than $631 a year! That can sure help keep your Dunkin’ addiction alive!
4. AARP member?
Just show your valid AARP membership card when you purchase any Large or Extra Large Beverage and get a free Donut! (excludes cooler beverages) This deal is limited to 1 free Donut per transaction with valid AARP membership card.
5. Always use your Dunkin’ Donuts receipt coupon.
If you’re not an addict of the Chicken Apple Sausage Breakfast Sandwich yet like I am, you will be glad to know that you can grab a free donut by simply completing the survey at the bottom of your Dunkin’ Donuts receipt. The survey takes only a minute to complete and you can do it right from your phone. Make sure to bring your receipt back in to snag your freebie.
6. Take advantage of the coupons that are distributed in the Red Plum inserts.
Red plum routinely distributes Dunkin’ Donuts savings coupons right in your Sunday paper. Make sure to ask you family, friends, and neighbors if they are going to use theirs!
7. Senior & military discount
Dunkin’ Donuts loves seniors and military heroes. They offer a 10% discount every day for senior citizens and the military.
