This week, Dunkin’ Donuts released a new app that lets you pay for doughnuts with your iPhone, iPod touch or Android smartphone.
The Dunkin’ app works like the Starbucks mobile payment app. Download it from Google Play or the App Store, then load it up with money. The card supports American Express, Visa, Mastercard, Discover and PayPal.
The next time you need a doughnut fix, you can hand the cashier your mobile device to be scanned rather than using cold hard cash or a credit card.
Other than buying a gift card through this app, can anybody enlighten me as to why this is better than cold hard cash or a credit card?
