Dunkin' Donuts / price discrepancy

1 Eddie Dowling HighwayNorth Smithfield, RI, United States Review updated:

I just read a complaint about the dunkin' donuts in smithfield ri and I have had the same exact experience at the dd on rte 146. I order the flatbread combo for $3.99, and every single time they try to charge me $4.72! When I tell them a mistake, invariably they say "that's what the register calculates automatically." then I get charged $4.31, although once they charged me $4.39. If ri sales tax is 7%, shouldn't it be $4.27??? I've read several complaints about dd overcharging tax online - from nj to ri - and I wonder how many millions of dollars this company is making by gouging the consumer???

If you think about it, if they make $0.45 off of every flatbread combo they sell, and similar amounts off of other items, each location could be making hundreds of extra dollars a day, right?

    Rhode Island used to charge 7% sales tax, but if you buy "prepared food" like at DD or a restaurant then the tax is 8%, so $4.31 is the correct cost including tax.
