All Dunkin' Donuts mGifts can also be added directly to the Dunkin' App, reloaded right from the phone, and used as a fast, convenient way to pay every day.
To help runners of all skill sets hit the roads and races smartly in 2013, Dunkin' Donuts has partnered with Runner's World®, recognized as the worldwide authority on running information, to develop 5K and 10K training programs exclusively for Dunkin' Donuts. The programs are available in the DDSMART section on DunkinDonuts.com, along with several new articles written for Dunkin' Donuts by Runner's World, providing tips and advice to help runners of all ages and abilities achieve their personal health, fitness, and performance goals.
