Poet T.S. Eliot famously proclaimed April to be “the cruelest month.” We’re guessing he was talking about tax time or maybe all those dreary rainy days. Too bad T.S. couldn’t be around to enjoy this month’s Tax Day Deal at Dunkin’ Donuts. Surely the offer of a free donut would have cheered him up.
The world’s largest coffee and baked goods chain is wishing its customers a less taxing Tax Day by offering all customers a free donut with the purchase of any size cup of Dunkin’ Donuts’ hot coffee. On April 15, customers, regardless of whether they owe taxes or are entitled to a refund, can stop by any participating Dunkin’ Donuts shop nationwide and select from among a wide variety of delicious donuts.
“We hope that Dunkin’ Donuts can make Tax Day a little more palatable for tax filers and coffee lovers by offering them a delicious free donut. We know Americans work hard for their money and this is our small way of showing our appreciation,” said Frances Allen, Dunkin’ Donuts Brand Marketing Officer.”
Dunkin’ Donuts sells more than one billion cups of hot and iced coffee every year. In 2007, AOL.com readers cited Dunkin’ Donuts as the “Best Overall” coffee.
New “Oven Toasted” Menu
In addition to its wide variety of beverages and baked goods, Dunkin’ Donuts recently launched an all-day Oven-Toasted menu, featuring new menu items, including flatbread sandwiches, personal pizzas, and hash browns. The menu items are now available at participating Dunkin’ Donuts locations nationwide. The chain says its shops have received an entirely new cooking platform, using patented technologies, to deliver the “Oven-Toasted” result, enhancing the taste and quality of both new and existing menu items.
