Foodies, this one’s for you! Dunkin’ Donuts, America’s largest coffee retailer serving almost 1.5 billion brewed coffee cups each year, now lets you download food! Nah, just joking; no matter how much technology excels that is one threshold we haven’t crossed, yet. Anyhow, the real news here is that following the lead of Starbucks, Dunkin’ Donuts now lets you pay through your phone. If you’re an Android or iPhone owner, the first thing you should do is to download this ‘make-your-life-easy’ App from links available at the end of this post and start diving into caffeine and the sugary dough.
Not enough to quench your geek thirst? We have more; if you have a Dunkin’ Donuts card, just link it to your virtual machine and start paying online, it also allows you to purchase a new card, add money to your existing card and view all previous transactions. Even more so, if you’re bad at finding routes and tend to get lost each time you leave home, like me, this App tells you all the locations of the nearest Dunkin’ Donuts store, with the help of the store locator, comprising of store hours, Wi-Fi and drive-thru availability, and much more.
Also, it comes with full menu of the eatery with additional nutritional information about your favorite meal (weight watchers this one’s especially for you) and, of course, the latest Facebook and Twitter updates are a must.
In addition to satisfying your own appetite, this App lets you send sweet gifts and Dunkin’ Donuts cards to friends, family and co-workers through email, text messaging, or Facebook. This makes Dunkin’ Donuts the only local coffee retailer shop to offer people a multitude of options for sending a mGift. These cards can be sent from $2 to $100.
As its website says Dunkin’ Donuts is America’s all-day favorite, everyday stop for coffee and baked goods and has earned the No. 1 ranking for customer loyalty in the coffee category by Brand Keys for six years running, which is pretty much evident from its newly launched App that customer ease and convenience is Dunkin’ Donuts first priority.
Also, Dunkin’ Donuts is part of the Dunkin’ Brands Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: DNKN) family of companies.
So, Dunkin’ Brand has made some special arrangements in order to celebrate the launch of the Dunkin’ App, today. All the Dunkin’ Donuts fans should know that it’s hosting “The Dunkin’ App Twitter Sweepstakes,” on twitter, offering 20 lucky and enthusiastic fans a chance to win a $50 mGift just for tweeting @DunkinDonuts, and oh, don’t forget the hashtag #DunkinApp, after the tweet. Good luck!
