Program Details

How does MyPanera work?

Simply put, we want to reward you for what you already do - enjoying all your favorites at Panera Bread®. Just present your card every time you visit; we'll swipe it and once we get an idea of what bakery-cafe items you prefer, we'll do our best to reward you with more surprises based on what you love. It's another way we say "thanks" for choosing us!

Do I need to keep track of points or redeem coupons?

MyPanera was created to be as simple and effortless as possible. There are no points to track or coupons to clip. The more you visit us, the more rewards you may receive.

Do I need to keep a record of my purchases?

Not at all. We take care of it for you. Simply present your card to our Associate before you place your order every time you visit. Your purchases will be recorded automatically.

I visit a few different Panera Bread locations. How do I know which cafes participate in the program and which ones will accept my card?

We accept MyPanera in participating Panera Bread® bakery-cafes in the United States and Canada. Ask at any Associate at the bakery-cafe if it's a participating bakery-cafe or Contact Us online. Click here to locate your favorite bakery-cafe or to find a location that’s most convenient for you.

Can I cancel my membership in MyPanera?

While we hope you won't want to leave us, if you decide for whatever reason to no longer participate in the MyPanera program, simply Contact Us here and we'll remove you from our membership and mailing list. But of course, you're always welcome to join us again if you change your mind - and we hope you will!

My Rewards

What kind of rewards can I expect?

You may get things like complimentary bakery-cafe items, exclusive previews and tastings or cooking and baking tips. Or we may surprise you with invitations to special events, ideas for entertaining, recipe books - and more!

How do I know when I'm entitled to a reward?

That's part of the fun - it's always a surprise. Our Associates will inform you when you place your order if you have a reward loaded onto your card. Or you can check My Rewards before you visit and easily see what's waiting for you.

How long are my rewards good for?

All rewards have a 60 day expiration window, unless otherwise noted. Check My Rewards or your receipt for expiration dates.

Missed Visit

How do I add a missed visit code?

To add a missed visit, click here. Then, log in to your account. If you've forgotten your username or password, please go to our "Log In" page and request the information to be sent to your email address.

Why am I receiving an error message when trying to add a missed visit code?

Visit credits do not accrue until after your card is registered, so pre-registration visits are not accepted. However, once you register, you will receive a welcome surprise, which is added directly to your card and will show up on the My Rewards page! All codes expire after 30 days. If your receipt is more than 30 days old, you will not be able to add it online using our missed-visit feature. Instead, you can Contact Us here - we'll be happy to add it for you with the information off your receipt. With the online feature, you can add one missed-visit code per day, two per week, and four per month. If you exceed this limit, or have additional questions about the missed-visit code, feel free to Contact Us here and we'll be happy to assist you further!

How do I register my MyPanera Card?

Please visit the Join Page for an online form and immediate registration.

Can I have a duplicate card or link another card to my account?

The advantage of having your own card is that each member will receive his or her personalized offers. At this time, we cannot issue multiple cards to MyPanera members. We hope to provide duplicate cards or linked accounts for households in the future.

I've lost my card. How can I get a new one?

You can get a new card at your local participating bakery-cafe. To make sure that the registration and transaction history of your lost card will be transferred to your new card account, give the Associate the lost card number which is displayed on your Account Info page. Once your lost card account is located, the Associate can swipe a new card and all of your account details should be transferred. If you believe your account(s) have been compromised, please immediately Contact Us and take immediate action to remove the credit card information associated with your account(s).

How is Nutrition Information calculated?

Nutritional information provided on this website is based on Panera's standardized recipes, representative values provided by suppliers, analysis using industry standard software, published resources, and/or testing conducted in accredited laboratories, and are expressed in values based on federal rounding and other applicable regulations. A number of factors may affect the actual nutrition values for each product, including the fact that our menu items are handcrafted and may be customized, variations in serving sizes, preparation techniques, ingredient substitutions, product testing and sources of supply, as well as regional and seasonal differences. Accordingly, Panera cannot guarantee that the nutritional information provided on or available in any bakery-cafe is completely accurate as it relates to the prepared menu items in every bakery-cafe. In addition, testing of new recipes of existing products may be conducted from time to time in certain markets. These new recipes may contain different/additional ingredients, including allergens, as compared to the original version. Some bakery-cafes may serve menu items which are not listed. For the most up-to-date information on limited time offering menu items (including test items), please call or visit your nearest bakery-cafe to speak with a manager.
