Dunkin' Donuts Unveils New Birthday Perk

CANTON, Mass. -- In honor of Dunkin' Donuts' 60th "BirthDDay," the brand has a new special offer -- the Dunkin' Donuts Birthday Perk, in which all members of the Dunkin' Perks program will receive a coupon in the mail during their birthday month, good for a free medium beverage of their choice, including any iced or hot coffee, tea, latte, hot chocolate or Coolatta slush drink (cooler drinks excluded). For an added bonus, starting in May, when new guests enroll in DD Perks, Dunkin' Donuts will mail new members a coupon for another free medium beverage.

According to John Costello, chief global customer and marketing officer at Dunkin' Brands, Dunkin' Donuts' new Birthday Perk is an opportunity to thank Dunkin' Donuts guests for their loyalty and passion for the brand. "As we honor our own 60th birthday, we wanted to show our appreciation for our guests who make us a part of their everyday routine. With our new Birthday Perk, guests enjoy a special treat from Dunkin' Donuts on their special day," he said.

The Dunkin' Perks program provides members exclusive in-store and online offers, as well as the inside scoop on new menu items, new restaurant openings and all the latest Dunkin' Donuts news. Enrollment is free at To be eligible for the Birthday Perk, current DD Perks members must update their profile with their birthday information.
