Dunkin' Donuts Adds Passbook Support to Its iPhone App




U.S. coffee chain Dunkin' Donuts has added Passbook support to its iPhone app, allowing users to pay for their coffee and donuts with a virtual gift card stored on their phone. Starbucks added similar support to its iPhone app back in October.

Quote:
PAY RIGHT FROM THE APP WITH A VIRTUAL DD(TM) CARD.

Use the app to pay for all your purchases. You can either add a plastic card or purchase a virtual card via the app. Simply tap the DD Card you wish to use and present the barcode to the DD crew member to be scanned, and you're good to go. You can also manage and reload your DD Card right from the app.

APPLE PASSBOOK INTEGRATION

Now you can purchase a virtual card via the Dunkin' App and add it to your Passbook wallet.
Dunkin' Donuts is a free download from the App Store. [Direct Link]

So passbook is such a flop that any new company that uses it is newsworthy?
I don't know why Apple bothers including it on non-US phones.

Yes, certainly. One kind of coffee is far better than just about every kind of coffee in existence (starbucks). Have you tried Blonde Roast?

Pardon, but both their coffees are crap. But now it's easier to get Dunkin Donut's crappy coffee.

Oh, joy!!

On completely unrelated news, the NSA and the state police of every state have just approved iPhones and started issuing them to all policemen.

Just logged in to my account after downloading the app and realized I have a card active on my account with $2.65!!! The digital equivalent of finding money in your spring/winter coat left over from the prior season! Guess it was worth the (virtual) trip!

Ha! To be fair, I heard this is primarily in the northeast.

Do they offer free refills or food items every 12 purchases when you use their app?

Starbucks > DD

PS no DD here in Toronto, just Tim Hortons.

How is it better handing a DD clerk my $400 phone and get him to try and scan it rather that a free plastic card that I can swipe or tap myself?

Coffee doesn't make you fat. In fact NOTHING makes you fat, eating and drinking over our needed caloric intake makes you fat.

To further the point, black coffee, which basically has zero calories has proven to actually burn calories.

And using this app to pay for items you would have purchased anyway doesn't make you fat.

I've never handed over my phone while at Starbucks. I can't imagine it would be any different at dd.

They just tell me to scan my barcode.
