Sign up for their unlimited coffee subscription to get free cups of coffee until the end of 2021! (If you’re an American Express cardholder, you can get free coffee for 6 months!)

American Express Card Holders Get 6 Months of Free Coffee

Sign up through American Express and Instead of getting free coffee until the end of 2021, get free coffee for 6 months!

After the 6 months of free coffee, you will be charged $8.99 a month for the coffee subscription service.

Is The Coffee Subscription Worth It?

If you’re already a fan of drip coffee and you live or work near a Panera, it’s definitely worth it.

The subscription comes out to about 30¢ per cup per day with the plan costing $8.99 plus tax per month.

Each 16 ounce cup of coffee at Panera cpsts $2.49, so if you get more than 4 cups of Panera coffee a month, it’s worth it.

But, if you’re not near a Panera or don’t normally drink drip coffee but prefer lattes, which are espresso based, this subscription wouldn’t be worth it.

Coffee at Panera

I would say the coffee at Panera is decent. It’s not the best and it’s not the worst.

Panera serves their drip coffee in carafes and when I get their coffee after it has been freshly made, in a completely full carafe, the coffee tastes so much better than an almost empty carafe that has been sitting there for a couple of hours.

Questions You May Have

How can I cancel my Panera coffee subscription?

If the coffee subscription isn’t working for you, cancel it on the app or use the cancellation link on the monthly payment email. You can also call Panera’s customer service (1-855-372-6372) to cancel.

Can I get a chai tea latte or a caramel latte with the subscription?

Nope. Only hot tea in the form of tea bags in hot water and drip coffees are included in the subscription.

Can I gift someone the coffee subscription?

Unfortunately, no. The subscriptions are tied to each person’s MyPanera account so it’s not possible to gift. You can only use your account for your own subscription.
