Panera Bread is offering a hot deal for coffee lovers.
It’s estimated that Americans spend more than $1,000 on coffee annually. However, with Panera Bread’s coffee subscription program, that price could drop to $108 every year.
The service offers unlimited hot coffee, iced coffee and hot tea (with unlimited refills of the same beverage each day) for just $8.99 a month at participating cafés — any size, any flavor. (Cold brew iced coffee, espresso, cappuccino beverages, and other beverages are excluded from the offer.) Plus, you can redeem the perk once every two hours.
You must be a member of its MyPanera rewards program to join. Then, the complementary cup is added to your account as a reward — just redeem it at checkout or online. To join the program, click here.
According to Panera Bread, the monthly program pays for itself in just four visits — based on the purchase of four 12-oz. cups of coffee. On the other side, if you took advantage of the benefits daily, it’s just under 30 cents a day for any size, any flavor of light roast, dark roast, hazelnut, decaf, iced coffee or hot tea.
The subscription program is an industry first, so it will be interesting to see what the service stirs up among Panera Bread’s competitors.
