You’ve probably heard about the 10% senior discount for the Dunkin’ Donuts breakfast menu – well, does Dunkin’ actually offer such a deal? We’ve decided to investigate available information on Dunkin’ Donuts senior discounts to find out!
We’ve discovered a lot of conflicting information on senior discounts at Dunkin’ Donuts, but the key takeaway is as follows – some Dunkin’ Donuts locations do happily provide 5% to 10% discounts for seniors – you just have to ask for it ! However, Dunkin’ Donuts doesn’t appear to have a nationwide senior discount policy.
The likely reason why the discount policies of Dunkin’ Donuts locations may differ is that all Dunkin’ locations are franchisee-operated . Basically, these franchisees have purchased the right to operate under the Dunkin’ Donuts brand in exchange for fees from each sale. Since the franchisees are independent of each other, they may implement their own senior discount policies.
Also, back in March 2012, Dunkin’ Donuts announced an agreement with AARP  (American Association of Retired Persons) which provided an exclusive discount to any AARP member with a valid membership card. With the purchase of a large or extra-large coffee, AARP members would receive a free donut in Dunkin’ locations nationwide.
Unfortunately, as of March 31, 2018, the deal had ended , although it’s possibly still active in some locations. You’ll have to ask at a nearby Dunkin’ Donuts location to find out though!
In the meantime, also keep an eye on Dunkin’ Donuts promotions – if any nationwide discounts do appear in the future, Dunkin’ will most likely list them on its website.
