Panera Bread bakery-cafes are owned and operated either by Panera or by independent franchisees licensed to operate Panera Bread bakery-cafes.

Operation of the MyPanera Program.
The MyPanera Program (“Program”) allows you to receive certain rewards, which may not be identified to you in advance. Purchases at participating Panera Bread bakery-cafes are required to earn rewards. Member card must be registered, and may be required to be presented, in order to earn/receive rewards. You must be at least 13 years of age to participate in the Program. Only one member card per person. Rewards are issued by Panera on a periodic basis. Number, type and frequency of rewards are based upon a number of factors, each subject to change, including without limitation, volume and type of purchases at participating Panera Bread bakery-cafes, member card usage, type and amount of personal information provided (for example, email address), and type and amount of participation in and/or interaction with other Panera programs and/or applications (for example, surveys). Member card may be presented in connection with Panera Catering purchases. Generally, however, rewards are not related to the size/volume of catering purchases. Unless otherwise identified, a reward will consist of the single serving size of the item noted. In the event of any discrepancy, Panera’s determination of the size of the reward shall be final. Member cards may be used to earn rewards a maximum of five times per day, and with a minimum of two hours between each usage. When earned, rewards will be identified on your MyAccount page (if you have one) and may also be printed on your receipt. You are not obligated to accept or utilize any rewards. Only one reward may be redeemed per transaction. Rewards will be deemed forfeited if not used within allotted time frame. Rewards are subject to change or substitution without notice. Rewards may not be exchanged for cash, any cash equivalent or any other products, or combined with other discounts or coupons. Rewards may be transferred only through reward transfer program(s) (if any) made available by Panera through your MyAccount page. If you forgot to present your registered member card, you can get credit for your visit by entering the code at the bottom of your receipt at www.mypanera.com/missedvisit (limits apply: 1 per day, 2 per week and 4 per month. All visit codes expire after 30 days.)

Your username and password are for your personal use only. You are responsible for maintaining the security and confidentiality of your MyPanera card and your account, username and password, and you agree to be responsible for all activities that occur with your MyPanera card and under your account, username and/or password. Neither Panera nor its service providers are responsible for undeliverable, lost, returned or misdirected emails or other correspondence related to your account, or for use of your MyPanera card or your user name or password without your permission. Some Program options are only available if you utilize corresponding Program features (for example, rewards only appear on your MyAccount page at mypanera.panerabread.com if you create a MyAccount page). A unique email address may be required.
