17 Panera Hacks

Best Restaurant Loyalty Rewards

Starbucks Hacks

Maybe you missed out on Panera’s summer of free coffee.

No worries, it’s the season of giving, and the restaurant has given customers two gifts at the same time that make their unlimited coffee subscription cheaper than ever.

Get as many cups of brewed or iced coffee as you want (or buy it for someone else).

Here’s what you do:


Sign up for MyPanera+ Coffee for a free month.


The first month of Panera’s unlimited coffee subscription is free for new subscribers.


Buy 3-month promo subscriptions for $20.


The MyPanera+ subscription typically costs just $8.99/month, but starting Cyber Monday, Nov. 30, Panera is offering 3-month coffee subscriptions for $20 (a 26% discount) — and 2-month subscriptions for $15 (a 17% discount).



Stack the promo subscriptions end to end.


Whether you’re buying the subscriptions for yourself or for someone else, Panera says they never expire and they can be applied one after the other. So buy them all at once, while you can.

You’ll need to set some alarms, though. Before your free first month ends, add your first 3-month promo subscription. Before that promo subscription ends, add the next one, and so on.


Get an ENTIRE YEAR of unlimited coffee for $75.

Here’s how it breaks down:

  • Month 1: $0
  • Months 2 – 4: $20
  • Months 5 – 7: $20
  • Months 8 – 10: $20
  • Months 11 &12: $15

Total cost is $75 ($6.25/month average) — or, the equivalent of just 30 large iced coffees a year. If you use it once about every 2 weeks, the subscription will pay for itself.

Normally, the price for a year would still be $107.88, which is like 43 of those iced coffees.


Bonus: Get $60 in Panera gift cards for $50.

Like they’ve done many times before, Panera is also offering a gift card special during the holidays. Buy $50 worth of Panera gift cards and get an extra $10. That’s 17% savings.
