Great app when it works, but it almost never does. Almost every time I go to reload the value on my card I experience an app error, and in result of this, I cannot purchase any food or drink that morning. This is quite angering especially when you’re relying on the app to quickly pick up breakfast and coffee on an early commute. When I’m not experiencing issues reloading a value, I am receiving error messages when doing something as simple as placing an order. I can’t even count how many times if received messages saying app error or technical difficulties. It’s very unfortunate because I am a loyal customer and I want to use the app, yet I’m running out of patience because these issues are not new. These situations have been problematic forever now. I expected them to improve after the app aged a little, figuring it was a learning curve for the designers of the app. However, after all this time and constant complaints, they have still not fixed these errors. I have about run out of patience at this point and it’s unacceptable to seldom work. The app has potential and I love it when it works, but until these major issues are resolved, I hate to say this, I will be ordering to Starbucks. I am a loyal Dunkin customer and I spend exuberant amounts of money there (and I want to), but at this point, Starbucks is far superior in the mobile ordering system, and my commute in the morning does not allow for an in store order.
My biggest problem with this app is it rarely works. If you ask it to refresh and show the balance on your pre-loaded card, it constantly says the wrong balance according to what they scan at the register and say that I have. It’s told me before I had $12 for example, and the people scan at the register and say I have three. The rewards are practically worthless. I go there twice a week and I might get a free cup of coffee every other month. But none of that matters compared to trying to load my card with value. It should be simple but every single time I do it there’s a different problem either preventing me from putting value on, or showing me a screen that says there’s an error so that I do it over and over again end up with $60 added to my stupid Dunkin’ Donuts card. Then I go through an entire order on the go process and at the very end when I try to pay and be done with it it says my location doesn’t support ordering on the go. Do you think you could’ve maybe told me that beginning before I went through a ridiculous 30 steps to try to get an order in? Terrible terrible execution on this app. It’s absolutely ridiculous that they can’t make this app function properly, never mind Be worthwhile to use.
I want desperately to leave my Starbucks app and go to DD. Unfortunately, I have had so many issues with this app. At least 5 times I’ve tried to use it within less than a mile of DD stores and it can’t find any stores. (Yes, location services are on.) Other times, it indicates that the store in question doesn’t participate in order ahead even though I’ve used that store at least 50 times. Another time, it read insufficient funds even though there was more than enough on the app to cover the charge. Another time, I participated in the MasterPass special option to give a $10 DD card using MasterPass and get a $10 credit on your DD app/card. It didn’t work, I contacted DD 3 times via email and first got an automated answer explaining what MasterPass is. (Yes, I know...been using it quite a while.) The second response was from a person who basically copied and pasted the first response and I never received a response to the last email. I just feel like DD could get so much more business if they could work out all the kinks in the app. When I’ve asked about it at the stores, the employees acknowledged that they have a lot of customers saying the same thing, but they aren’t seeing much improvement either. Come on...help me ditch my Starbucks addiction and acquire a DD addiction. I’m willing...just waiting on an app that works more than 50% of the time.
This app is a great idea. It lets you order whatever you want from Dunkin' and skip the line. Just run in and get it, leaving all the other customers in the line wondering why they didn't order ahead instead of waiting in a long line. HOWEVER, the actual execution of this app falls short of all the hype and promise. The auto reload function has been completely disabled, which in the long run has saved me money since I've stopped going as much. I have chosen a Dunkin' as my store for pick up but when I hit the confirm start my order button I noticed it defaulted to a totally different location. This has happened at least 4 times. I have ordered a 2 coffee order 15 min ahead and yet neither coffee was made when I entered the location (this happens more than not). I have received strange combos when ordering a turbo shot for an iced coffee. The turbo shot came on the side in a small paper cup. I have been told what I'm getting is what I ordered when I can look at the receipt and see they clearly messed up my coffee but refuse to change it. I have changed my go to location thinking it was just the employees at the store messing up my order. I can go on. Instead I have chosen to use up my few remaining free coffee coupons and find a new way to get my coffee in the morning or any time of day.
My app freezes, has a fancy “favorites” feature but when I try to use it to reorder I get an error message that it can’t add it to my order right now. It’s just a medium ice coffee-nothing special or seasonal. It will let you add everything to your order and then tell you that it can’t process it now. The Dunkin’ Donuts I used to go to regularly just stacks all the orders in a small spot so several times only half of my order is there when I get there and I end up having to ask someone for help and I’m in the store longer than people who didn’t order through the app. My order isn’t large, sometimes two drinks and a sandwich but something is missing or someone accidentally took it. When I’ve ordered seasonal flavors if they’ve run out the app doesn’t tell you. I ordered a pumpkin ice coffee and was very upset when I got to work and realized they put no flavor in my coffee because they were out of pumpkin but the app made it look available. Plain Dunkin’ Donuts iced coffee with no flavor or no sugar is not very appetizing and i has to just dump it. I thought the app would make me go to DD more often but I actually go less. Even when you earn a free drink if you wanted something special like an almond milk or turbo shot they charge you extra for it. So the free drink reward is really a limited free drink reward. Come on DD. You can do better than this! I’d like to be a regular again.
