Dunkin Donuts And McDonald's Try To Steal Starbucks' Business Today With Cheap And Free Coffee

In order to capitalize on all Starbucks being closed today for retraining, Dunkin Donuts is selling $.99 espressos today from 1 to 10pm. And if you’re lucky enough to live in Chicago, they’re giving away free small lattes. Not to be outdone, Houston area McDonald’s are giving away free medium iced coffees from 5-9pm, precisely when all Starbucks will be shut down nationwide. Too bad all three chains taste like crap.
