Panera can caffeinate you for your Black Friday shopping spree — and it's totally free.
If you sign up for the restaurant's MyPanera+ coffee subscription, you'll get free coffee through the end of 2021. That includes hot or iced coffee and hot tea, though fancy coffee drinks and extras like pumps of syrup will be an additional charge.
You can get a freebie every two hours, and there's unlimited free refills if you eat in the restaurant, so that adds up to a whole lot of caffeine to fuel your holidays. Once January rolls around, the subscription will cost $8.99 per month, but you can cancel it before you get charged. Put a reminder on your calendar and you can make the most of this end-of-the-year free-coffee spree.
Is a month-long taco spree more your speed? Other fast-food chains are testing food subscriptions, including Taco Bell. Its Taco Lover's Pass, good for a taco a day, is being tested in Arizona, and we can only hope it goes nationwide as well. A free coffee in one hand, and a free taco in the other. That's the life.
