Dunkin' Donuts Treating Chicagoans to Free Coffee Oct. 5

Whether you support the Olympic bid or not, I think one thing we can all agree on is the deliciousness of Dunkin Donuts coffee. Luckily for us, regardless of the Chicago 2016 outcome, Dunkin' Donuts will toast us all with a free medium coffee all day, Monday, Oct. 5.

The free coffee is Dunkin' Donuts' way of saying thank you to Chicago for all the hard work in showcasing our city. The free coffee is available all day, Oct. 5, at all of the nearly 500 Dunkin' Donuts locations in Chicago and suburbs. No purchase necessary and limit one per customer.

Thank you, Dunkin' Donuts, for letting us all be winners.
