Apparently, Panera Bread asked its Twitter followers if they wanted “free unlimited premium coffee all summer” as part of the company’s #FREECOFFEE4SUMMER Twitter challenge. If 500,000 people votes yes, then Panera Bread would do so:
Shockingly, the tweet received 500,000 “yes” within 3 days of it being posted with 87.4% of the Twitter universe voting for free coffee.
Panera Bread is keeping its promise. If you sign up for a MyPanera+ Coffee subscription now through July 13, 2020 – you’ll receive free coffee all the way until Labor Day (September 7, 2020).

The Bottom Line
This would have been a screaming hot ninja deal in a “normal world”. Many people work near a Panera Bread and would’ve had multiple opportunities every day to enjoy coffee that is surprisingly good for a fast casual restaurant.
Still, it’s a great deal all things considered now with the world slowly opening back up. The fact that the unlimited free coffee is available until September 7 makes it more valuable.
Be sure to cancel the subscription after the free period is over or you’ll be charged the $8.99 monthly fee.
