Customers do not get a separate membership card when they sign up for the DD Perks membership. Instead, the membership is tied to an active Dunkin' Donuts Card, specifically one that has funds on it. Members must pay with this card in order to earn points.
DD Perks members do not have to have a physical card; the program gives members the option to use an enrolled DD card that is linked to the Dunkin' Donuts mobile app. As of February 2015, members receive 200 points upon enrollment and earn five points for every $1 spent on qualifying products at Dunkin' Donuts.
