I Won The Bagel Lottery

This morning I got an email from Panera with the subject line that got my attention:

Kathy, get a free bagel every day this month.

I didn't need to read the body of the message to know what it said, because I already knew about the promotion (which is open to anyone who has a MyPanera card). DIL Nicole had been the lucky recipient of the same email in October, and when we were visiting late that month I walked with her to pick up her daily bagel several times.

I don't know how many days I'll remember to take advantage of the offer, but I started the month off right.  Today when I drove right by a Saint Louis Bread Company (the name for the chain in this area) my car smoothly turned into the strip mall parking lot and found a convenient parking space.  It was getting close to lunch time, but I didn't have to wait long to be served.  I chose my bagel, had it sliced in half and bagged, and was back out in my car in less than five minutes.

Come to think of it, it wouldn't be too much of a hassle to make sure I drive by a Bread Company tomorrow, too.  After that, we'll see.

    1. I've actually gotten the free coffee offer, too. I think I only took advantage of it a couple of times during the month.

  3. Thank you! Without this post, I wouldn't have realized that my email address was outdated with Panera! :)

    1. Do you ever make them at home? One of favorite breads to bake.

  5. Congratulations! All of a sudden, I'm craving a chocolate chip bagel, topped with peanut butter.

    1. That's not a combination I would have thought of, but it sounds REALLY good!
