If you love hot coffee and delicious doughnuts — including my personal favorite, Munchkins — you probably are among the millions who “run on Dunkin’.”

Fortunately, we’ve got a bunch of tips to cut the cost of your java and Boston Kreme runs. Following are five ways to trim your bill at Dunkin’ Donuts.

1. Sign up for the DD Perks rewards program

If a stop at Dunkin’ Donuts is part of your morning routine, sign up for the DD Perks rewards program. For every 200 points you earn, you get a free beverage.

In addition, you’ll score a complimentary drink on your birthday. You’ll also receive exclusive offers, rewards and bonus points throughout the year.

2. Purchase discount gift cards online

Regular Dunkin’ Donuts patrons can save cash by purchasing gift cards at sites such as Cardpool.com or Raise.com.

We’ve seen these sites selling Dunkin’ gift cards at a discount of up to 25 percent. To learn more about how these sites work, check out “How Unwanted Gift Cards Saved Me $300 Last Year.”

3. Answer surveys to earn free gift cards

If discounted gift cards are not good enough, how about free ones? Sites such as Swagbucks.com allow you to earn points for answering surveys and engaging in other activities. Pile up those points and trade them in for free Dunkin’ Donuts gift cards. Swagbucks offers DD gift cards in denominations from $3 to $50.

4. Use the survey code on your Dunkin’ Donuts receipt

Want to tell the folks at corporate just how much you love DD? Or perhaps you’ve had a bad experience and want to vent to the powers that be.

You can do either by completing a short survey online. Just look on your most recent receipt for a survey code and fill out the survey at TellDunkin.com. Offer your honest opinion, and you can score a free doughnut with the purchase of a medium or larger beverage.

5. Mark your calendar — and wait patiently

Each year in June, National Doughnut Day rolls around, and Dunkin’ gets in on the fun. This year, Dunkin’ offered customers a free classic donut of their choice with the purchase of any beverage. So, hang in there — the coming winter is sure to fly by just knowing that a free treat awaits you.
