Anyone here a Dunkin’ Donuts lover? Check out this simple tip fellow Hip2Save readers, Karissa, sent us to sweeten up your next trip to Dunkin’.

I often go to Dunkin’ for breakfast and coffee, but I just learned a quick an easy way to earn a free donut. Go to the website listed at the bottom of your receipt and enter your survey code. Take the survey (it’s super quick!) and earn a FREE donut on your next purchase of a medium or large beverage.

A free Dunkin’ donut is always a good thing & I often just give the donut to my son. 

How sweet! 🍩

We’ll definitely be paying more attention to our receipt on our next trip. And why stop at Dunkin’? Other coffee retailers may offer similar freebie promotions making it worthwhile to give each and every receipt a quick scan.

Thank you, Karissa, for sending us this tasty tip!

    They almost never give the receipt unless you ask. I swear it’s intentional. And where I’m usually in a hurry, or handing off things to the kids, etc… I often forget to ask. I need to be more mindful of it b/c I almost always order a size medium or larger.

    DQ gives a free Dilly bar for taking their survey. No purchase necessary to receive it. Just enter a code from your survey and hand them your receipt .

      Wow ty blue!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Awesome! Thanks for the heads up!

    • Melie

      Sometimes it’s for a free mini blizzard instead 🙂

    Not giving the receipt unless you blatantly ask for it — sounds like our local Chick-fil-A 🙄 Stingiest CFA owners I’ve ever met.

    Fortunately and unfortunately both a Dunkin donut shop near me and the Krispy Kreme shop have horrible customer service. This has been good for me. Because I don’t shop where customer service is bad. No matter how good they donut. Less fat calories for me. My history with Krispy Kreme’s goes back 30 years. It’s too bad they have a bunch of entitled teenagers running it near me. Burbank. The only way I would put up with it is for a free dozen on Pirates day. But they stop doing that. 🍩🔨

    Kfc gives you a free crispy chicken sandwich if you buy a soda, if you do survey. Burger King, free with side and drink, I think. I do every survey I see, they almost always offer a free gift card raffle. I won once at Bonefish, $25.

    I do this all the time. Gaining weight though!!

    Sonic receipts sometimes have a survey for a free Route 44 drink with food purchase. I like to save them for $.50 corn dog days for a cheap treat.

    Did the survey for years and now it’s a code at the end,they have to scan it and paying with my app and scanning this code I can’t do it because it has to scan at the same time so no more freebies 😫

    • Debbie

      tell them you have the coupon for the free donut.. i do it all the time..take a screen shot of the free coupon…. they scan the free coupon first, then you pay with the app.. it’s a little bit of a pain but not terrible

  9. Julie

    Do you get these when you pay with the app? I just can’t handle the wait in ridiculously long line when I can walk in grab and walk out!

  10. Jacqueline

    I began doing this one day when I forgot my snack at home and I do use their app to pay – they do need this available when we order via mobile though

  11. Tabitha S Cooper

    This has literally been a thing since forever.

    I told Stetson about this tip during his live video.
