How to get a free donut from Dunkin Donuts

I know what you're thinking, "Another post about breakfast food again today? Is this girl for real?" But this one is totally different. While I still 100% stand by my belief that brunch is the best meal, sometimes we just don't have time to indulge in this treat.

When I'm rushing to get to work on Saturday mornings after I've hit the snooze button one too many times I'm left with 2 options for breakfast: drive thru or yogurt from the employee dining room. I think we can all guess which choice is my favorite, and while it certainly is more tasty it also is more pricey. That is until I learned the trick that is the free donut from Dunkin Donuts. This little trick has seriously changed my life and restored my bank account's faith in my decision making.

1. Go to Dunkin Donuts and order something. Seriously it doesn't matter what it is, just make sure you get your receipt.
2. Go to (it says you only have 3 days after your visit but it's really longer) and put in the survey code listed at the bottom of your receipt
3. Fill out the quick survey (it'll take less than 3 minutes)
4. At the end of the survey you will be given a validation code. Write this on your receipt
5. Take this receipt to your Dunkin and order a medium or larger beverage and receive a free donut
6. Save this new receipt and repeat steps 2 - 5

It's seriously that simple! I stop at least once a week, usually more, and haven't paid for a donut in months. Even if you aren't a coffee person this is great because it works on any medium or larger beverage. The other day I went for an afternoon snack and ordered a sweet tea (only $.99!) to go with my toasted coconut donut (my new favorite). Other delicious combinations I can't get enough of include vanilla iced coffee with a strawberry frosted and hazelnut iced coffee with a maple frosted.


  1. I used to do the same thing back in high school because we had a dunkin right down the street!! Now I check every receipt for a survey. Especially Chick fil a because they always offer a free sandwich if you take their survey. Only catch is you have to at least order a combo meal! Oh and Bojangles and McDonalds offers free biscuits with basically any purchase. Enjoy :)

  2. i LOVE Dunkin' Doughnuts! Definitely going to make sure I do this every time I go there now. Doughnuts = my life.

  3. Do you have a Dunkin Rewards card??? You get 5 points for every $1 you spend and when you hit 200 points you get a free medium beverage, PLUS a free drink when you sign up AND on your birthday! Extra bang for your buck - I put off getting a rewards card for months and I am kicking myself for not getting one when the program first started (I am there at least once a day..... embarrasing.....)!
