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.)
You can redeem the perk once every two hours.
However, right now, there’s an even better deal on the coffee subscription!
BONUS: Sign up through September 7 and receive a FREE coffee subscription through Sept. 7, 2020.
Note: The originally deadline to sign up for the FREE subscription was July 4, but that’s been extended to September 7.
If you already have a coffee subscription, you don’t have to do anything. They’ll automatically waive any renewal fees June 22nd to September 7th.
Please note that you’ll need to add a credit card when you sign up, and that if you don’t cancel when the free trial period ends, you’ll be charged. So make a note to yourself to re-evaluate when September rolls around! Thanks to reader, Barry, for pointing this out!

You must be a member of its MyPanera rewards program to join. Then, the complimentary cup is added to your account as a reward — just redeem it at checkout or online.
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.
If you redeemed the offer every two hours…well, we wouldn’t recommend that! But it would be some very cheap coffee!
