Use Apple Pay to get four months of free coffee from Panera Bread

Apple is offering a new limited-time promotion that will see those who check out with Apple Pay in the Panera Bread app earn some free coffee.

Inviting you to “stay warm this winter with Apple Pay”, the company has sent out promotion details via email to its customers in the United States. All you’re required to do is download the free Panera Bread app to your iPhone from the App Store. You then need to sign up for a $9 per month MyPanera+ Coffee subscription on the Panera website, with Apple Pay used to check out, and you’ll get your first four months of coffee at no charge whatsoever.

Those who would use any other payment method in the app won’t be eligible for the promo. A MyPanera+ Coffee subscription includes hot tea and iced coffee with unlimited refills. Other hot beverages like espresso and cappuccino are currently not part of the program.

The offer is valid to new subscribers who sign up for their coffee subscription by January 27, 2021 (current subscribers may be eligible to get a free cookie). As a cool bonus, Apple Card customers get three percent Daily Cash back on ‌purchases made at Panera Bread stores.
