If there's a better way to wipe off the morning grogginess than by washing down sugary treats with a strong cup of joe, we haven't found it yet. In the meantime, we consider coffee and baked goods a perfectly acceptable way to start off the day, and if you're a fan of Dunkin' Donuts, you don't even need to fumble through your wallet for loose bills now that the chain accepts mobile payments.
Dunkin' Donuts is the latest of a growing number of establishments that allow patrons to pay for goods and services with their smartphone, tablet, or other mobile device. Similar to the Starbucks app, coffee (and donut) lovers can pre-load funds into the mobile app, lookup menu items, see nutritional information, and more. You can also send virtual gift cards in increments of $2 to $100 to be delivered via text message, email, or through Facebook.
The app is available on Android (Google Play) and iOS (iTunes) and supports American Express, Discover, Mastercard, Visa, and PayPal. Buckazoids are not accepted at this time.
