Dunkin' Donuts is promoting its loyalty program through Friday with its first Perks Week promotion, the company said Monday.
The division of Canton, Mass.-based Dunkin Brands Group Inc. began offering special daily rewards to members of its DD Perks program, which launched in April, and the special offers run through Friday.
Dunkin' Donuts' has more than five million DD Perks members, and through the rewards program they are able to earn points toward free beverages with each purchase of Dunkin' coffees and food items.
Competitor Starbucks Corp. has more than 12 million members in its My Rewards program. Kevin Johnson, Starbucks president and chief operating officer, said in a Nov. 4 earnings call that My Rewards membership has grown 18 percent over the past year.
"Mobile payment now represents 25 percent of all transactions, up from 20 percent a year ago," Johnson said. "Customers continue to embrace mobile order and pay, which now represents 6 percent of transactions, reaching 7 percent in the month of September."
Dunkin' Donuts' weeklong promotion is aimed at motivating DD card use and payments. For example:
Monday: Members earn triple points on all purchases made via the On-the-Go mobile ordering platform

Friday: Members earn 100 bonus points when they make an in-restaurant purchase using the DD Perks-enrolled DD Card.
