Guests can use their Dunkin’ Mobile® App to share the Dunkin’ love with their special someone by purchasing a Valentine’s Day themed mGift. Simply go to the “Gift” toggle on your Dunkin’ Mobile® App, which is available for both iPhone® and Android™, and select one of the two fun holiday-themed mGifts, a monetary value and the delivery method – text, email or Facebook. You can even add a personalized message to make your mGift unique. 

Find Your Perfect Pair with Zoosk

Dunkin’ Donuts has partnered with Zoosk, a leading online dating company and the #1 dating App in the iTunes Store, to make this holiday a little sweeter. Just like the perfect flavor pairing of our Brown Sugar Cinnamon Latte and Coffee, we’re offering a nice deal for anyone seeking their own perfect pairing. On February 13 and 14, people who register at Zoosk will have the chance to win a $5 Dunkin’ Donuts mGift to use on a coffee date. To be eligible, people must register here and can visit here for more information. 

Along with our partnership, Zoosk conducted an online survey of 14,161 to see if coffee brews romance, and if it plays a role in meeting that special someone. Here are some of the fun findings we discovered:

• For an ideal first date, coffee is the winner over dinner: Exactly two-thirds (67%) of people said that having a casual conversation over coffee would be the ideal first date with someone they just met online. Going out to a fancy, romantic candle-lit dinner was a distant second at 24%.

• Nearly 72% of people said that that going out for coffee can be just as romantic as a fancy dinner.

• More than half of people (51%) said they would rather receive a fresh cup of coffee from their sweetheart than fresh flowers. 

• What is the most romantic flavor of coffee? French Vanilla was number one, followed by Caramel.
