Our Verdict

MyPanera is the rewards program for Panera Bread, it’s free to join. You don’t get any spreads with this offer, but a free bagel is a free bagel. Not clear if you need to pay for tax or if it’s completely free. You don’t have to pay tax, so this is completely free. I’m going to start curating a dedicated page for these free food deals to be added to so if people need free food they can quickly reference that. As always even if you don’t want this deal yourself you could just sign up and then give the bagel to a homeless person. Also in addition to this free bagel deal, you also get a free pastry or sweet that will be added to your account.

Easy! Registered online, received an email, went to Panera and said I would like to get my free Loyalty bagel please, and they asked if I had a card, I said no, so they punched in my phone number I registered with and that worked. Today they gave me a loyalty card to register online. I also got 1 free sweet treat (cookie/muffin/pastry) as a first time loyalty user! Thanks DOC!!!

add the Panaera card to your apple wallet and the free bagel shows up!

+1, I got tied up yesterday and couldn’t go in person to redeem, so I can’t speak as to process yet; but yeah, the free bagel is verbally linked to my card in the Apple Wallet, even though it was not visible in my Panera app. I guess it gets triggered when you scan to pay?

Added my panera card to apple wallet and I still dont see the daily reward, only the free dessert. Went in store and used phone number and was able to pull it up though.

Claimed my first one this morning. Had to order at the counter. They had trouble getting the reward to post, but they told me I was good and they would figure it out. Hopefully that’s not a daily occurrence.

Yes, this won’t show up in the app (does show up if you add Panera card to Apple wallet though), so you have to order at a normal register (not online or kiosk). Works fine for a completely free bagel, no tax needed either.

I check with customer service and the free bagel will not show up under rewards, hence the not using online or kiosk language in fine print. I can report back if I am unable to get the bagel but I was told the freebie will only show up on the register.

One other thing to note, you can order your bagels for a future day for rapid pickup through the app or website. That way, you can stop once and pick up multiple bagels at once if you want to share (order 1 per day, but all for pickup on the same day)!

So are you an anecdote that “not available with online or kiosk orders” is not being enforced?

Would appear that way. Shows up like any other reward for me when ordering through the app.

The terms says that is not valid for future orders, we’re you able to add it?

I had no issues picking up 3 bagels this past Saturday that were ordered on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. All through the app. It seems to work exactly like any other reward. Just choose the bagel you want, select a rapid pickup date/time in the future and the discount gets taken as checkout online.

What does it show on check out? For apple pay, mine shows charges to continue. Does your show $0?

Cashier seems well-aware of the free bagel offer, even though it doesn’t show up in app. Just had to enter mty reward account phone number at the terminal to redeem, along with the free pastry.

Signed up and the account was only showing the sweet reward but then I checked my email and there was an email about the free bagel

I think this might be for all members as my wife and I both received an email about this a couple of days ago. I’d assumed it was a targeted offer but possibly not.
