CANTON, Mass., June 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Dunkin' Donuts today officially announced the launch of its newest mobile payment option for guests, integrating Visa Checkout on DunkinDonuts.com and within the Dunkin' Mobile® App as a fast and easy way to purchase and reload virtual Dunkin' Donuts Cards.
As part of a new, co-branded campaign titled "Get Stuff Dunkin'," the two companies announced that today through June 14, or while supplies last*, they are offering people a special $10 bonus when they load at least $25 on a new or existing Dunkin' Donuts Card using Visa Checkout, limit one per customer. The campaign will feature actor Joel McHale, who is on a crusade against wasted time and shares how Visa Checkout can help busy people get time back in their day that they can use to "Get Stuff Dunkin'."
"I'm a busy guy," McHale said. "So I don't have time to fumble with a wallet or bulky paper currency. When I heard I could pay for Dunkin' Donuts coffee using Visa Checkout on the Dunkin' app, I said, 'Thank you, technology!' Technology hasn't replied yet. Apparently that technology doesn't exist yet."
Launched by Visa less than a year ago, Visa Checkout is an online check out service designed to simplify the payment experience. It can be accessed using any web-enabled mobile device, and can store any major credit or debit card, so that consumers don't have to re-enter billing and shipping information.
"As a brand recognized for speed of service and meeting the needs of on-the-go people, we are committed to leveraging the best technologies to allow our guests to purchase Dunkin' Donuts food and beverages as quickly and conveniently as possible," said Scott Hudler, Vice President, Global Consumer Engagement at Dunkin' Brands. "Visa Checkout gives us yet another powerful way to save our guests valuable time in their busy day, and make it easier than ever to keep running on Dunkin'."
"Dunkin' Donuts and Visa Checkout are a perfect match – you can now literally have a cup of Dunkin' coffee in one hand and pay for it using Visa Checkout with the other," said Sam Shrauger, Visa's senior vice president of digital solutions. "We're thrilled to kick off this partnership and help Dunkin' guests 'Get Stuff Dunkin'' faster and from anywhere in just a few clicks."
Dunkin' Mobile App The Dunkin' Mobile App for mobile payment and gifting enables guests to pay for food, beverages and merchandise at participating U.S. Dunkin' Donuts restaurants by scanning their Dunkin' Donuts Cards stored in the app either in-store or at the drive-thru. Featuring language settings that enable users to view content in English or Spanish, the Dunkin' Mobile App is available for free from the App Store on iPhone or iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore and from the Google Play Store at https://play.google.com/store. The Dunkin' Mobile App has been downloaded more than 11 million times since its launch in 2012.
Visa Checkout: The Easier Way to Check Out Visa Checkout is an online service from Visa that allows consumers to securely store their shipping and payment information without ever having to re-enter it when shopping online. With Visa Checkout, consumers can simply enter their username and password, and click a button to complete the purchase.
