Yesterday, Starbucks announced that they’re updating their mobile app and website to reflect the big changes to their loyalty rewards program (which went live today!). And coincidentally (not), Dunkin’ Donuts also announced, in an official press release, a new DD Perks Rewards Program App that already went live.

Dunkin’ Donuts sure is giving Starbucks a run for its money. Shortly after Starbucks announced an overhaul of their rewards program, they’ve been on the receiving end of a good amount of discontent from current members. Since Starbucks revamped their app, looks like things aren’t going so well on that end either. Customers are experiencing technical difficulties, missing stars, rewards and some have expressed anger at new members fast move to Gold Star status past members have worked hard to earn. 2016-04-13 11-13-38.png 2016-04-13 11-13-49.png

I wanna be the very best like no one ever was. Couponing is my real test, to cut them is my cause. I will travel across the land, searching far and wide. Each store to understand, the discounts that's inside.

I'm a little pi$$ed off at DD for taking away combos, in my area at least. That effectively rised the price of a medium coffee and sandwich by about $1.

Shoot! Sorry to hear :( I'm still waiting for the first Dunkin' Donut to open up in my area. I hear great things about them, hope they bring the combo back somehow.
