Free Bagels Every Day in September!

So, I may have done quite the happy dance when I logged into my account at the beginning of September and discovered that finally I had earned the coveted Freebie Every Day of the Month reward from Panera. And it was one of the best rewards — a free bagel of your choice every day!

I’ve been trying to make the most of it… especially since I waited for months and months and months to get one of these rewards!

If you’re unfamiliar with how these rewards works, here’s a quick run-down:

  1. You need a MyPanera card that’s linked to your MyPanera account. You can sign up for a card by clicking the Join Now button here or in-store. You want to make sure that your card is registered at MyPanera (you can make sure it is by logging in online through the MyPanera sign-in button here.)
  2. Once you have your registered card, be sure to use it every time you visit Panera. You’ll earn rewards for doing so. You can log into your account to see how many visits you have left until you earn a reward.
  3. Log into your account regularly to see if they’ve rewarded you any extra bonus rewards. These are usually awarded based upon how often you visit and what you purchase when you visit.

Hopefully, if you haven’t gotten it already, you’ll be awarded a Freebie Every Day of the Month Reward, too, very soon! I’ve been loving all my free bagels + the free hot teas I’ve been earning, too!

After all, free is one of my very favorite words!

P.S. Do you have any great tips for ways to save at Panera? If so, I’d love to hear them!

    Congrats! I know you have wanted that reward for a while. Every month you post it and say you didn’t get it I would get disappointed for you.

    I got it the bagel deal once and the coffee deal once. Which surprised me since I don’t visit a Panera often -closest one is 45 minutes from us. I did use each deal at least once though.

    Enjoy all you free bagels!

  • Amanda says:

    One thing you can do is order a bagel each day but pick them up on the same day. Example: Each day for a week I go and order online, use my rewards, and have the pick up date be Saturday. It helps you use your free bagel everyday without having to go each day!

  • Janet says:

    I got the bagel deal in July and used it quite a bit!
    Life is short enjoy the “freebies”

    I NEVER get that reward and I know several friends that have and they don’t frequent nearly as much as I do! 😕

  • Katie B. says:

    I got this reward a few months ago. I didn’t eat the bagel everyday but spread the love by letting different people in my office get it.

    We found out that you can get butter included for free (up to 5 of the little tubs when ordered online). Since cream cheese is extra we did this instead. 🙂

    Buy one kitchen sink cookie and divide into four pieces or two pieces. Those cookies are enormous and rich and something like 800 calories for one.
    It’s still a really nice treat to have a fourth or a half of one.
