I just renewed my membership specifically for the DD free donut and just found out it was no longer available.  I probably won't renew again and I won't be going to Dunkin Donuts either.

I like the comment from the member that it was good while it lasted.

I also opened a case with Dunkin' Donuts and got the exact same reply. Seems they don't really care.

I don't read the magazine, or really use much else.  I just wanted to know if DD stopped supporting AARP or if AARP dropped the offer.  It matters to me who supports AARP.  The membership fee  is inconsequential to me.

I just tried to find out by calling DD.  They read me what sounded like a script.  The points I remember are they are independently owned, have no requirement for owners to offer senior discounts, and the agreement with Momma DD was that anyone displaying the AARP card could get a type of free donut with a L or XL coffee.  I asked how such an agreement was honored by all the independently owned operations I'd visited and they had no explanation.  They just reiterated the agreement ends NLT 3/31/18.

My 'on the way to work with a drive-thru' place is offering it through 3/31/18.  Maybe it's time to put their app on my cell or fill out those surveys for the classic donut.

Actually the DD free donut is the only thing I have used the card for since I got it. Now that I  retired I can look to see if there is something more I might use it for. And now that I just retired they did away with the discount.

In addition to contacting DD and getting a canned response, I contacted AARP and got a clueless response. Apparently, no one at AARP monitors this community board and, after being on the phone for 25 minutes and transferred around, no one knew anything and they said the same thing DD said which was that they no longer participate and have other benefits available. They don't even have a clue that people are upset. I'm cancelling my membership! Maybe when enough people cancel, they'll realize that they dropped the ball.
