Panera Bread is offering a hot deal for coffee lovers, a monthly coffee subscription.
It’s estimated that Americans spend more than $1,000 on coffee annually. However, with Panera Bread’s monthly coffee subscription program, you could drop that to about $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 Panera Reward program to join. Then, the complimentary cup is added to your account as a reward — just redeem at checkout or online.
According to Panera Bread, the monthly subscription program pays for itself in just four visits — based 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 program is an industry first, so it will be interesting to see what the service stirs up among Panera’s competitors.
