Please review the following MyPanera Frequently Asked Questions. If you do not find your answer, please Contact Us for more information.

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 the 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 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.

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. We may also surprise you with invitations to special events, ideas for entertaining, recipe books - and more!

How Do I Know When I Have A Reward?

Each time you visit and use your MyPanera account, a note will appear at the bottom of your receipt indicating how many visits are left until your next reward. You can also view your progress toward rewards, as well as any rewards that are available and their expiration dates, by signing into your account here.

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 for other than catering orders, click here. Then, log in to your account. If you've forgotten your username or password, please go to our "Sign In" page and request the information to be sent to your email address. For missed visits for catering orders, contact us at within 30 days of your visit and we will make the appropriate correction to your account.

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 your MyPanera Dashboard. 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 and we'll be happy to assist you further!

How do I register my MyPanera Card?

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

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.

Why can't I edit my birthday?

What if I want to register but don't have an email address?

The MyPanera program requires that guests register their card online to begin their membership, which includes providing a unique, valid email address. This helps ensure that your visits are being recorded in the right place and maximizes your opportunities to earn rewards.

Why can't I register with the same email address I share with someone who already registered?
