Do I Dare Try the Dunkin Donuts 50-cent deal on Tuesday?

A couple of weeks ago, one of the Sunday circulars contained coupons for Dunkin Donuts, including one specifically for a 50-cent iced coffee on April 21. I normally don’t attempt to use coupons at fast food restaurants in Manhattan – they always come up with a reason not to accept it. You don’t want to tell them in advance because you could end up with an experience like J Money’s at Quizno’s, and if you wait until afterwards, you’re put in a position to either suck up the rejected discount or leave the food and look like a mean-spirited cheapo.

Dunkin Donuts would do well to take this coupon from me tomorrow, because last summer I got my weekly treat from McDonald’s and the quality varied widely, to the point of occasionally being undrinkable. So I’m willing to challenge my loyalties…for 50 cents.

  1. Free cone day at Ben&Jerry’s tomorrow: http://www.benandjerrys.com/scoop-shops/feature/free-cone-day/

    Though if you look at their list of NY stores, quite a few aren’t participating.

  2. Well, maybe if I get my new laptop operational by tomorrow afternoon, I’ll allow myself to indulge!

  3. You have a new laptop? Since when? 🙂

  4. Their coffee is quite good, but their doughnuts (notice the spelling) can’t compare to Krispy Kreme.

  5. I usually avoid free giveaway days since they usually end up like a scene straight out of Lord of the Flies. But I’m sure 50 cent coffee days won’t be as crazy…. I think….
