Panera Wants You to Save Money on Coffee With Its New Subscription Service

The fast-casual restaurant chain may just give Starbucks coffee a run for its money.

It's official: Panera's coffee may now just be the most affordable of them all thanks to its brand new subscription service.

Are you one of those people that won't survive morning meetings without a cup of Joe in hand? We've been there…like two hours ago to be exact. However, if you're anything like the 160 million American adults who drink coffee every day, starting the day off right isn't always in the budget.

According to "Acorns 2017 Money Matters Report," the average American spends $1,100 on coffee each year. That adds up fast! Lucky for you, Panera's new coffee subscription service will enable you to maintain your regular caffeine intake while adding almost $1,000 back into your wallet by the end of the year. If you spend roughly the same amount on tea each year, you'll be delighted to know that this deal applies to you, too.

Available for $8.99 (plus tax) per month, MyPanera+ unlimited coffee subscription offers tea, iced coffee, and hot drip coffee. Your coffee options include decaf and hazelnut, as well as this year's new light and dark roast blends, made from Arabica whole beans. Oh, and did we mention you can get a refill every two hours? You also have two ways to place your coffee order: You can either order the traditional way in person at one of Panera's bakery-cafes or place your order directly through the app.

Another new perk about ordering coffee from Panera is that the company will no longer upcharge for plant-based milk alternatives. In other words, you can add as much almond milk to your coffee as you want without your wallet taking a hit.

Now that you have the scoop on everything the Panera coffee subscription service includes, here's how you can register. If you're already a member of MyPanera, the fast-casual restaurant's free loyalty program, you can head straight to their website or mobile app and register right now. Coffee lovers can also sign up at one of Panera's many bakery-cafes nationwide using a QR code starting on March 2.

Get ready to incorporate Panera in your morning routine.
