Dunkin' App Now Serves Up Mobile Offers

Updated Dunkin' Donuts mobile app now features special discounts and promotions on favorite Dunkin' food and beverages

CANTON, Mass., Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Dunkin' Donuts, America's all-day, everyday stop for coffee and baked goods, today updated the Dunkin' App, the brand's mobile application for payment and gifting, now enabling users to receive mobile offers, which are for special discounts and promotional offers on Dunkin' Donuts food and beverages. Beginning today, people who download, or update, the Dunkin' App to their iPhone or Android smartphone can enjoy mobile offers via a new "My Offers" tab, where they can receive exclusive, geo-targeted regional offers for Dunkin's famous coffee and other favorite menu items, such as breakfast sandwiches, redeemable at certain participating local Dunkin' Donuts restaurants. Some markets will make Dunkin' Donuts mobile offers available beginning this week; others will launch later this year or in early 2013.

Redeeming a Dunkin' Donuts mobile offer is as easy as selecting an offer in the "My Offers" section of the Dunkin' App, tapping to redeem it and then showing the offer's QR code to a Dunkin' Donuts crew member to be scanned. Examples of Dunkin' Donuts mobile offers planned for select markets over the coming weeks include special deals such as a 99-cent medium hot chocolate, a buy-one-get-one small coffee offer and a free Turbo Shot with the purchase of a hot coffee.

According to John Costello, Dunkin' Brands Chief Global Marketing and Innovation Officer, Dunkin' Donuts' mobile offers both reward loyal fans and maintain a level of engagement that distinguishes the brand throughout the country. "Our busy guests are always on the go, and we know they are increasingly reliant on their mobile devices. Delivering special discounts and promotional offers directly to their mobile devices highlights our unique value proposition and deepens the connection we have with people who make Dunkin' Donuts part of their daily lives," he said. "We are excited to enhance our Dunkin' App with mobile offers, and to continue to make it even easier for on-the-go people to run on Dunkin'."

With the Dunkin' App, running on Dunkin' is quicker and more convenient than ever before. Guests can easily use their Dunkin' App to pay for food, beverages and merchandise at participating U.S. Dunkin' Donuts restaurants by scanning their Dunkin' Donuts Cards stored in the App either in-store or at the drive-thru. The Dunkin' App also allows guests the option of sending Dunkin' Donuts Cards to friends, family and colleagues with the mGift feature. Dunkin' Donuts Cards can be mGifted three ways – text, email and Facebook Connect.

Available for free from the App Store on iPhone at www.itunes.com/appstore and from the Google Play Store at https://play.google.com/store, the Dunkin' App connects guests to the brand with an exciting array of tools and information to make any Dunkin' run easier and faster. Highlights include:

  • Purchase, register and reload a Dunkin' Donuts Card: Guests can purchase a new Dunkin' Donuts Card (selecting from multiple designs for many occasions), add money to an existing card, set a card to auto-recharge and view all previous card transactions. The Dunkin' App supports payment using American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover.
  • Pay right from the app using a Dunkin' Donuts Card: Guests can purchase Dunkin' Donuts products with the Dunkin' App by simply tapping the mobile Dunkin' Donuts Card and presenting the screen to the crew member to be scanned. Balances are updated immediately after purchase.
  • Send an mGift: Dunkin' Donuts Cards can be sent to friends, family or colleagues via email, text or Facebook. Dunkin' Donuts Cards can be sent in denominations between $2 and $100.
  • Mobile Offers: On the "My Offers" tab, guests can receive exclusive, geo-targeted regional offers for Dunkin's famous coffee and other favorite menu items, such as breakfast sandwiches, redeemable at certain participating local Dunkin' Donuts restaurants.
  • Locate the nearest Dunkin' Donuts: A detailed restaurant locator makes it easy to find directions to and information about local Dunkin' Donuts restaurants, including store hours, in-store Wi-Fi, drive-thru availability and more.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions.

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Learn how IoT, cloud, social networks and last but not least, humans, can be integrated into a seamless integration of cooperative organisms both cybernetic and biological. This has been enabled by recent advances in IoT device capabilities, messaging frameworks, presence and collaboration services, where devices can share information and make independent and human assisted decisions based upon social status from other entities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Heydt, founder of Seamless...
The IoT's basic concept of collecting data from as many sources possible to drive better decision making, create process innovation and realize additional revenue has been in use at large enterprises with deep pockets for decades.

There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, showed how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants received the download information, scripts, and complete end-t...
For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, discussed how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the dat...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
