Read the quick guide to Dunkin’ Veterans Day discount below to be sure you have what you need to get this appetizing offer and enjoy your Veterans Day!
How Does Dunkin’ Donuts Support the Military?
Dunkin’ usually offers a 10% discount on meals (donuts and coffee) to all active servicemen and servicewomen. This discount does not have an offer or coupon code.
In order to get this offer, you must display a military ID at checkout. You should also note that Dunkin’ daily military discount is only available at participating Dunkin’ locations in the country. (contact your local Dunkin’ to verify participation).
Family members of active-duty servicemen and servicewomen cannot utilize this discount.
Aside from this promotion, Dunkin’ Donuts also supports “Homes For Our Troops,” an endeavor to build custom homes for severely injured post-9-11 veterans.
Through the “Coffee for Our Troops” program, Dunkin’ has donated over 300,000 pounds of coffee to the troops deployed overseas. A monthly lottery event decides where the 10 cases of coffee will be donated.
Finally, the military-inspired virtual Dunkin’ gift card makes it convenient for other customers to contribute towards honoring the active military members, as well as the veterans (on Veteran Day).
What You Need to Bring with You
To take advantage of the 10% discount at Dunkin’ Donuts, you need to show your military affiliation with some form of ID.
The ID must show that you are currently a member of the armed services and should be issued by the United States Department of Defense.
The Common Access Card (CAC) is one of the main military IDs for active-duty military members. While some vendors only ask that you wear your uniform or show a picture of yourself in uniform, Dunkin’ will not necessarily accept that as valid proof.
What Dunkin’ Veterans Day Deal Includes
On Veterans Day, one free donut is typically offered to all veterans and active-duty military while supplies last. No additional purchase needs to be made to receive the free donut.
Please note that not all Dunkin’ locations will participate. Since it is up to the individual owners of the outlet, you can give your location a call to inquire about their offer and any specific terms and conditions.
When Veterans Can Get Their Discount
The Veterans Day special at Dunkin’ is typically only available on November 11th. Although some restaurants and food chains offer week-long deals and offers for veterans, Dunkin’ offers this deal for Veterans for a single day only.
Whereas other restaurants only offer a free meal at breakfast, lunch, or dinner, Dunkin’ offers its free donut deal all day long.
Who Is Eligible for Dunkin’ Veterans Day Discount
The offer is valid to all veterans who have served in the armed forces, National Guard, and reserves.
Active-duty members can also avail this offer on Veterans Day. Further, a veteran who has been “honorably” discharged, or discharged due to service-connected disability is also eligible for the offer.
Common forms of ID include a military ID Card, US Uniform Retired Services ID cards, veterans ID card, Veterans Service Organization Card, current leave and earnings statements (LES), DD form 214 or other discharge paperwork, a drivers license with a veterans stamp, or other proof of military service.
Again, please note that your family or guests accompanying you are not eligible for a free donut.
