On March 2, 2018, I too asked for my previously free donut with the purchase of an extra large coffee and was told "the deal" no longer existed. However, as along time customer, I was given a free donut one last time. This interaction has confused me as I did not see a notice from AARP that "the deal" no longer was available. Simply, does "the deal" still exist and it is up to indvidual locations to honor, or not honor "the deal"?

I am not sure what is being discontinued from AARP discoints! This is a very inclusive program with discounts on insurance, cell phones, hotels, restaurants and more.

Here is the Web site for AARP discounts:

Hi @elite8539  I'm confused. Could you be more specific? What establishment are you talking about?

I just went to a location on US Hwy 1 in St Aug. I didn't want the coffee and asked if there were any alternatives and the clerk said no and didn't seem to care about my concerns as a customer. I have gotten discounts at the two Saint Augustine locations near I 95 so it may be a case of a franchised locations keeping their own bottom line.

I have had a problem with Starbucks booths at hotels and grocery stores as they are also franchised booths. BUT STILL KEEP ASKING EVERYTIME YOU SHOP!


I'm with @DaveMcK: the more we ask, the more merchants will know that to offer a senior discount is good business.

I had done a lot of traveling this past year and would always stop at Dunkin Donuts for coffee. On many occasions I was told that my free donut was only with the purchase of a large  "coffee" and not any other type of large drink, or I was told that they don't honor the free donut at all. Anyone else having this problem?

The shop I visited under register name"MD-FX-TD-Dunkin Donuts Reg 2" at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia doesn't honor AARP membership at all so no free donut with purchase of L/XL size coffee 8-(. I will try my luck at the shop locate in Main Street this weekend and keep my finger cross ;-).
