When you’re running late in the morning, wouldn’t it be nice to find a hack that could save you some precious time? Sure it would, especially if it involves getting your caffeine fix sooner. Dunkin’ Donuts gets this, so they’ve created a way for coffee fans to place their orders without standing in line or lifting a finger. It’s all about Alexa and it could be a game-changer.
You can now place your Dunkin’ Donuts order through Alexa. All you need is both a DD Perks account and an Amazon account and from there, here’s how you do it. Link the two accounts via the Alexa app and say, “Alexa, order from Dunkin’ Donuts.” Pick which location you want, and if you’ve gone to one recently, Alexa will automatically identify it. Then place your order, specify if you’re picking it up in-store or drive-thru and confirm the details. And when you arrive, you can skip the line and get your morning pick-me-up that much sooner.
When you’re really in a hurry, you can even say, “Alexa, tell Dunkin’ Donuts to reorder my last saved favorite,” and it’ll do everything from a previous order. And if you’re new to the DD Perks program, you’ll earn a free beverage once you enroll, along with a free drink on your birthday and other offers. So maybe mornings really did just get a little better.
