For years, fans of Dunkin Donuts have looked forward to free iced coffee, and many were excited about Dunkin Donuts Free Iced Coffee Day 2010. It was a surprise, then, when the Dunkin Donuts Free Iced Coffee Day 2010 Facebook page lit up with complaints. At about $1.95 for a small, a Dunkin Donuts iced coffee doesn’t take same day payday loans to enjoy — but why aren’t they free today?

Where is Dunkin Donuts Free Iced Coffee Day 2010?

The Dunkin Donuts Free Iced Coffee Day 2010 hasn’t been entirely canceled. But Dunkin Donuts is offering a free small iced coffee in only 13 U.S. cities. Those cities are:

  • Baltimore, MD
  • Charlottesville, VA
  • Cleveland, OH
  • Harrisonburg, VA
  • Norfolk, VA
  • Washington, DC
  • Youngstown, OH
  • Pittsburgh, PA
  • Richmond, VA
  • Roanoke, VA
  • Salisbury, MD
  • Philadelphia, PA
  • Phoenix, AZ

Why is Dunkin Donuts Free Iced Coffee Day 2010 so limited?

In the past, Dunkin Donuts Free Iced Coffee Day 2010 would have been a national event. When asked for comment, a spokesperson said that “As part of our 60th birthday celebration, Dunkin’ Donuts is offering a variety of regional promotions throughout the year rather than a national Free Iced Coffee Day.”

The real story is more nuanced. The stock of Dunkin Donuts’ parent company has dropped from over $20 per share to under $15 in the past year, and is now trading at about $18. With less money coming in and stronger competition, Dunkin Donuts is scrambling  for its position in the market.
