Grizzled orange and magenta veteran Ron Newman reports the chain formerly known as Dunkin' Donuts has changed its DDPerks program into Dunkin Rewards:

The new program is now much more like Starbucks Rewards, with tiers of different things available for different numbers of points. The old program was very simple: 200 points got you a free drink of any type and size. In the new program, you get twice as many points per dollar spent, but you need to redeem 900 points for the most expensive drinks (Signature Lattes or frozen drinks).

Per-capita Dunkin' Donuts in Massachusetts

Ari Ofsevit created a listing of the addresses of all the state's Dunkin' Donuts, then combined that with a database of the populations of the state's 351 cities and towns to create a map showing where people have the most Dunk's options within their borders. In the map, the lower the number, the greater the per-capita density of Dunkin' Donuts per community. Towns in white are, shockingly, Massachusetts communities with no Dunk's at all.
