MyPanera Rewards Program – Is it worth it?

Home » MyPanera Rewards Program – Is it worth it?

I’m in the mood for a little rant. I knew I would be taking a large group to Panera Bread, so prior to the visit I signed up for the MyPanera Rewards program, figuring I could earn some valuable points for a future visit to Panera Bread.

The bill came to $293 (yes it was a large group). Later in the day, excited to learn about my haul, I opened the app and clicked on “Rewards”.

Drum roll please

To my dismay, after spending $293, I was awarded with a $1 off of a beverage coupon.

MyPanera Rewards

To add insult to injury, I have to do four more visits before I get my next reward. So if I eat there four more times, do I get another $1 off coupon? Yippie!

Moving forward

No thanks. I ‘m deleting the Panera app from my phone.


Is MyPanera Rewards worth it to you?


First of all, in the picture, I am the one on the right.

I was a regular working guy, like many of you. I envied the people who had the freedom to do what they wanted when they wanted. I envied the people who traveled the world.

When I turned 45, I wondered "if others can do it, why can't I?" and set out to retire by the time I was 50.

Fortune smiled upon me and I accomplished my goal. Now you can follow some of my journeys.
