Fans can submit their celebratory photos and/or videos wishing their loved ones a happy New Year to a special tab on the brand's Facebook page. One photo and one video submission will each win the grand prize of a pair of JetBlue tickets. Ten first prize photo and 10 first prize video submission winners (20 total) will each receive a $50 Dunkin' Donuts Card.

As fans count down the days through the holiday season, the "Dunkin' K-Cup® packs K-ountDDown" offers fans a chance to enter to win a daily prize pack, while enjoying tips related to home brewing and holiday entertaining. The daily prize pack includes several items to keep them running on Dunkin' at home, or while on-the-go, including a Keurig® K-Cup® brewer, a six month supply of Dunkin' Donuts K-Cup® packs and a $20 Dunkin' Donuts Card. And, to help cover one of the biggest home-related bills facing people after the holidays, at the end of the promotion, five grand prize winners will receive $2,500 they can put towards their home or rent payment in 2013.
