    Thanks so much for all the great info on Freebies. I actually have a Panera card but always forget to go and register it. Now I did and tomorrow morning I’m picking up my free pastry. What a great way to start a Monday. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    Thanks for posting this information. As a side note, I volunteer with my church’s food bank. On Sunday nights I pick up Panera Bread’s “leftovers” from the day. They donate to different associations, daily, food items not sold. This benefits our food bank greatly as our number of recipients have gradually increased in the last six months. Also, I have a Panera card, with accumulated purchases you qualify for $s off your purchase, beverages, etc. I really appreciate Panera and their work ethic.
