Ordering from Dunkin Donuts just became even easier as you can now do it via your Amazon Alexa. Who would have imagined that one day we would each have a robot butler to answer all of our questions and basically plan out our lives for us. Okay, it’s probably not exactly as it sounds, but it’s pretty close if you have an Amazon Alexa or Google Home. We almost can’t remember how we got by without them.
Alexa, in particular, can already do a whole host of tasks and chores. Playing music, searching the internet, alarms, timers, games, all right there ready and waiting and all we have to do is say her name to call her into action. Plus, if you have appliances that can interact with Alexa, she can pretty much run your whole house if you so wish.
As if that wasn’t already enough, Alexa has just learned a brand new skill. The handy piece of tech can now place an order with Dunkin’ Donuts for you, as announced on DD’s website. No need to call ahead, Alexa takes care of that for you. If you’re a DD Perks Rewards Member and have an Amazon account, all you need to do is link the two together in the Alexa app and away you go.
When ordering, simply get Alexa’s attention and ask her to order from Dunkin’ Donuts. You will then have to select a location, although once you order from somewhere it will be identified as a recent location by Alexa from that point onwards. Make sure you have your favorite DD items saved as those will be the ones you can choose between, let Alexa know if you’ll be picking up in-store or via the drive-thru, and what time you’ll be swinging by.
That’s all there is to it, and when you arrive at your desired location, you won’t even need to wait in line. Pretty clever, huh? Plus, it’s not the only thing you can do with DD on your Alexa. For the past year, there has been a Dunkin’ Donuts quiz available on Alexa. Maybe give it a whirl once you’re on your way to pick up those pre-ordered donuts.
