Panera Bread Rewards
Have you signed up for Panera Bread Rewards Card yet – it’s called “My Panera”? If you haven’t signed up, I highly recommend you sign up! It’s free to sign up & when you sign up for the rewards card, you will get a freebie on your card. When I joined a few years ago, it was a free pastry, but it may vary now. Plus, you’ll get a freebie when it’s your birthday! But the best part is that you will earn discounts & free items based on your purchases.
I am a huge fan of Panera Bread – I used to go there several times a week as my daughter had preschool nearby, so I’d hang out working on the blog while she was in preschool or when my girls were in Awana at our church down the road. I love having healthier food options and Panera is just such a pleasant place to meet friends for lunch or take my girls out for a treat. (Plus our Panera Bread has a cozy fire in the back which I love sitting near in the fall & winter!)
When I was visiting fairly often, I found that I was earning free items on a regular basis. They will tell you at the bottom of your receipt how far you are away from earning your reward too – sometimes it is a discount or it may be a free item, you just never know! I’ve gotten free smoothies, free pastries & more – they base the free items on your purchases, so they should be something you like.
Plus, I wanted to share this email I received on the first – I was selected for a FREE cup of soup for EVERY DAY in September as a Panera Rewards member. Unfortunately it looks like this is just random selection, so not everyone got this – although I have been hearing of others who got a reward for a FREE cup of coffee every day in September. Make sure to check your email (& junk mail) just to be sure you didn’t get it, though. If you didn’t get a reward, don’t worry as I was looking thru Instagram & saw that reward members have been getting free monthly rewards for a few months now, so it could be you next month!
I love that no purchase is necessary, too – so I could go in every day in September and get my free cup of soup! I’m thinking they don’t know me too well, because I am totally taking advantage of this – I love me some Panera soup (especially Baked Potato Soup – best soup ever)! I think it’s just totally random how you’re selected. So, go and sign up now for Panera Rewards & you can earn some great rewards like this one!
