America runs on Dunkin’, but getting a Dunkin’ Donuts iced coffee every day can add up. Luckily, we know all of the Dunkin’ Donuts deals and specials that can get you a discount on your cup of joe every morning.

We’ll show you how you can always get a free donut for taking the Dunkin’ survey, the differences between Starbucks vs. Dunkin’, and even where to order your Dunkin’ delivery.

Before you order your Dunkin’ Donuts coffee, you should always check out KCL’s Dunkin’ coupons for the best Dunkin’ Donuts deals.


1. Get the best Dunkin’ Donuts deals & coupons through the Dunkin’ Rewards program.

You’ll still get Dunkin’ Donuts deals that can get you free drinks and extra points on your Dunkin’ purchases. Make sure to check the “Offers” page on the Dunkin’ app (iOS / Android) before you get your coffee. These deals cycle out every week.

Here are some of the offers we’ve seen:

3. Always ask for your Dunkin’ Donuts iced coffee with less ice to get more for your money.

When you order a Dunkin’ Donuts iced coffee, they will generally fill the cup halfway with ice before pouring the coffee, but if you want more coffee (who doesn’t), then you should always ask for less ice.

You can ask for no ice, but when I asked for no ice, they claimed that they couldn’t do that. Maybe that’s because it’s in the name … “iced” coffee.


4. Never order a Dunkin’ Box of Joe — it’s 41% more expensive than ordering an extra-large coffee.

A Dunkin’ Box of Joe is a 96-ounce box of coffee that’ll cost you $15.99, which is $0.17/oz. While it may seem like a good deal, the extra-large size of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee is 24 ounces for $2.29, or $0.10/oz.

That means getting a Box of Joe will cost you 41.2% more than buying four 24-ounce coffees.

Note: When you used to bring in a clean cup to Dunkin’, they’d give you a full cup of coffee for only $0.99. However, this has been discontinued due to Covid-19, and there are no plans on bringing this promotion back.


5. Dunkin’ Donuts donuts are cheaper than Krispy Kreme — up to 33%.

Plus, Dunkin’ Donuts donuts are a flat price no matter which donut you purchase, while specialty donuts at Krispy Kreme will cost you $0.20 – $0.60 more. How much is a dozen donuts at Dunkin’ Donuts? Here’s the breakdown:

When you sign up for Dunkin’ Rewards, make sure you put your birthday to get 3x points on your birthday. That’ll get you that much closer to your free Dunkin’ Donuts coffee.

Instead of spending $50 to get a free coffee drink from Dunkin’, you only have to spend $17 to earn the 500 points required for a free iced or hot coffee drink (reg. $3.19). And if you have boosted status (see Tip 2), you’ll only have to spend $14.

7. Take the Dunkin’ survey on your receipt to get a free donut.

An easy way to score an awesome Dunkin’ Donut’s deal is to get a free donut by filling out the Dunkin’ survey that you can find on the bottom of your receipt.

You’ll always get a free donut when you fill out the receipt, making this one of the few Dunkin’ Donuts deals that’s available every time you order.

It’s just one of the ways you can get free food — no complaining necessary.

Here are a few of the most popular breakfast items you can get at Dunkin’:

  • Croissant: $1.49
  • Bagel & Cream Cheese: $2.09
  • Turkey, Cheddar & Bacon Sandwich: $3.69

NOTE: Dunkin’ cycles out their breakfast menu regularly, so you can’t expect Corn Muffins, Impossible Breakfast Sandwiches, and Crullers at every Dunkin’ you visit.



11. Always get your Dunkin’ Donuts delivery from Uber Eats for the cheapest delivery fee.

The 24-hour Dunkin’ Donuts is amazing for a late-night coffee, but you might not be able to get inside the Dunkin’ to get your coffee. However, you can get your coffee through the Dunkin’ Donuts drive-thru.

Note: Not every Dunkin’ is open 24 hours or has a drive-thru. Make sure to check your local Dunkin’s hours before making your late-night coffee run.


14. Celebrate national food holidays for free Dunkin’ Donuts coffee & donuts.

And on National Donut Day (or the first Friday of June), you can get a free donut of your choice (regularly $0.99) with the purchase of any size drink.
