Dunkin Donuts New Birthday Perk: Free Birthday Beverage
Another birthday freebie! As of May 4, 2010, Dunkin Donuts is offering a new birthday perk….a free medium beverage on your special day! Enroll in their Dunkin’ Perks® and get a coupon for a free beverage just for joining and they’ll mail you another coupon for a free beverage in your birthday month.
If you’re already a Dunkin’ Perks® member, you’ll need to login and add an address to your profile so they can mail you a free birthday beverage as well.
What other birthday perks make people happy? Dunkin Donuts conducted a poll of 500 people in April with these results:
- What’s your favorite birthday perk? Forget the present or the cake. 63% of people said they enjoy celebrating their birthday most when their spouse, kids, family or friends do something special for them. Only 22% said opening presents makes a birthday special, and only 11% cited birthday cake as their favorite birthday perk.
- Singing “Happy Birthday To You” doesn’t make a birthday happy. 37% of people said that having people sing “Happy Birthday To You” is their least favorite part of their special day.
- Retailers, a happy birthday is on you. The most wanted “unexpected birthday perk” would be receiving something free from their favorite store or restaurant (29%,) followed by a surprise party (20%) or surprise visit from an out-of-town friend or family member (20%.)
- Bosses, let them eat cake! People enjoy a cake break to recognize a colleague’s birthday, as 70% of respondents believe that birthdays should be celebrated in the workplace.
- Celebrate your birthday proudly! Not many of us try to hide our birthday or forgo any recognition of the day, as 80% of people admit that they enjoy celebrating their birthdays.
After several years of gathering information about birthday freebies and discounts, I have to agree that the singing of the birthday song is not a highlight for many when dining out, however, the free birthday meal is!
Enjoy and Happy Birthday!
