Attn: Panera Fans

We have a lot of Panera fans here on the DIS. I just got home from there and thought I'd share something new they are doing. They are doing a new member rewards program. Surprises, invites to special events, etc. will be given to you as you use the card. Apparently these will match your preferences for items as you use the card. It is free to join and they even give you a smaller card to put on your keyring.

EDIT: I just registered online and already have a reward waiting - a free espresso or smoothie! WOOHOO!

Cool. Thanks. We have one just down the street. I go for the Mac and cheese. It is one chain that, to me at least, has actually gotten better.

I agree! I go there a few times a month, mostly on Saturdays. I love their Sierra Turkey and Asiago Roast Beef sandwiches.

I have a card that I haven't gotten around to registering yet. When we are in Buffalo we always have to go to Panera because it's DH's favourite place and I really enjoy it as well. I will register it tonight - thanks for the reminder and push in the right direction!

Panera is ok but I still think the Atlanta Bread Company is better. I had a chunky potato soup there today that was sooo good.

I do like the Asiago Roast Beef at Panera though.

Our Panara introduced the cards this summer. I got one and I have to tell you, I think it's one of the best "rewards" cards out there! There isn't a whole lot of rhyme or reason, that I can tell, but on average we eat there 2-3 times a month. I've gotten about half a dozen "one free pastry" rewards and 2 free drink rewards. And, I got something on my birthday that just randomly showed up. It doesn't cost a thing, and even if you only eat there sporadically, it's so worth it!!

I also get recipes sent to my email (I chose this when I signed up) and a notification when they add a new menu item.

sidenote, if you get sick of carrying all those key ring rewards cards, I use "Key Ring" app and scan all my cards in so they are on my phone. Many scanners won't read them, but its about 50/50 and they can always punch it in.

I use Cardstar, but it is so old I had to enter the numbers manually. Best Buy clerks hate me.

Best Buy scanners can never read the barcode, but ToysRus never has a problem. Not sure why, but some scanners just won't read the barcode off the screen.

But they've had free WiFi for years. That's nothing new.
