Panera Birthday Freebie Plus Free Pastry

- March 08, 2019

FREE Panera Pastry

This is one of my favorite birthday freebies! Panera has a delicious selection of baked goods to select from. To be fair when did baked goods not taste good right? That said with Panera you also get the peace of mind of knowing you are eating something prepared with healthy ingredients.

Guess what you get to choose for FREE from that delicious selection of baked goods on your birthday! You actually don't even have to use the coupon on your birthday. Customers can use the coupon up to 6 days after their special day as well.

MyPanera Rewards Program

FREE Panera Pastry

In order to join in on the party, you will need to become a member of their rewards program called MyPanera. Believe me its worth the trouble. They give you a free pastry just for signing up for the rewards program. Which you have up to 60 days to use after signing up.

Panera Welcome Freebie

In order to become a MyPanera member, you will first need a member card which you can get for free at any Panera Bread store location. Which is what I did when I joined a few years back. Also, you can sign up online and pick your card up at the store location of your choice. After you pick up your card you can register the card online or at the store location you picked your card up at.

MyPanera App

Once you have your membership I would highly suggest downloading the MyPanera app. The purpose of the app is basically making online orders without having to wait in line. All you have to do is pick up your already prepared order when you arrive. Or you can even choose delivery if you live or work within their delivery zone. If you like you can redeem your freebie within the app as well.

Does Panera Still Give Away Free Pastries?

Yes, well at least that has always been the case for me and everyone I know that has been picking up their free baked goods over the years. It's been reported that sometimes instead of baked goods they may offer you a free drink instead. For example soda, tea or coffee. That's great and all but I like my pastries! Still, if it's a drink this year I suppose I will be thankful for that too.

About Panera

Panera got started in 1980 as a cookie store in Boston, Massachusetts. Founder Ron Shaich would soon expand his business by partnering with Louis Kane. Louis's owned a French bakery chain called Au Bon Pain. In 1993 Ron and Louis acquired a sourdough bread company called St. Louis Bread Company. It was the mid-'90s before the bakery became know as Panera Bread. It was then when Ron saw his customers were first and foremost looking for food that they didn't have to feel guilty about eating.

Almost 40 years later the company now has over 2,300 bakery-cafes across the United States and Canada. In addition to bakery items the company also offers a wide variety of salads, sandwiches, soups, and bowl meals. All of which are prepared with healthy ingredients that Ron knows won't leave his customers feeling guilty.
