Tomorrow, September 29, is National Coffee Day, and here at Dunkin’ we are celebrating with a special coffee offer all day: DD Perks® members can get a FREE medium hot or iced coffee with any purchase*! We are sharing the loyalty love with our Dunkin’ loyalty members on the biggest coffee holiday of the year. Keep reading to learn more all about how to get access to this awesome coffee perk.

What coffee can DD Perks® members get for free with a purchase on National Coffee Day?

Dunkin’s Original Blend (hot or iced) or Dunkin’s Limited Batch Series coffees, 100% Guatemalan hot coffee or Dunkin’ Midnight hot coffee.

  • Original Blend: Our famous Dunkin’ Original Blend is a balanced and smooth medium roast coffee and is available hot or iced.
  • 100% Guatemalan Coffee: 100% Guatemalan Coffee, the latest addition to Dunkin’s Limited Batch Series, is a single-origin hot coffee that is smooth and rich with chocolate notes. It has less acidity and sharpness than other roasts which makes it approachable and easy to drink. 10 cents of every cup of 100% Guatemalan Coffee sold at Dunkin’ restaurants now through October 12 will benefit One Tree Planted, to support reforestation efforts in Guatemala**. Guests can also visit to learn more about our project in Guatemala and donate to the cause online.
  • Dunkin’ Midnight: Dunkin’s darkest roast yet is Dunkin’ Midnight. Also part of Dunkin’s Limited Batch Series, Dunkin’ Midnight is a hot coffee sourced from Central and South America and features a rich, smooth, full-bodied flavor, rounded out with notes of decadent cocoa.
