The “Dad’s Heart Donut” is available at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants nationwide for a limited time.

 
Dunkin’ Donuts is also launching a special “Dunkin’ Dad” Twitter Sweepstakes, offering fans the chance to put the K in “thanks” this Father’s Day with matching Keurig® K-Cup® Brewing Systems and Dunkin’ Donuts K-Cup® packs for themselves and their Dad.

Finally, to keep Dad running throughout summer and beyond, Dunkin' Donuts Cards can be personalized online with cherished photos or a customized message. The customized Dunkin' Donuts Card is also accompanied by a high-quality, custom designed greeting. The customized Dunkin' Donuts Card can be purchased online at www.DunkinDonuts.com for $4.50 plus the Dunkin' Donuts Card value and shipping charge.
 
Unlike some other rechargeable cards, Dunkin' Donuts Cards don't have any additional fees or expiration dates. If cards are registered online, Dunkin' Donuts will also replace them free of charge if they are lost or stolen. For even greater convenience, the card can be registered for auto-recharge, which automatically adds money to the card on a specific day or when the balance on the card drops below a certain level.
