About MyPanera Card

A MyPanera Card is a stored-value card that you can get at Panera Bread locations and then "load" a certain amount of money into. This value on your card can then be used as in-store credit. You can get a MyPanera card just by asking for one the next time that you make a purchase at a Panera Bread bakery-café. Once you have used up all the credit on the card, you can load more money onto the card over the internet. Once you get your card, you need to go online and register it; this will activate the card so that you can start using it.

Using a MyPanera card makes buying Panera Bread’s tasty line of baked goods and coffee drinks convenient and quick. If you have a friend or family member that likes to relax with a cup of coffee and a croissant at Panera Bread, then the MyPanera Card makes a great gift. Also, once you have registered and activated the card, you can go online and load more money onto it anytime you like. You can even set up the card account so that it will add more credit to the card whenever your balance falls below a minimum that you choose.

Actually, the card works much better as a gift for someone you know that likes fresh baked goods and coffee, since you can be giving that person someone that you know they will like that they can start enjoying right away.
