Panera alert!

Today's rewards has the wonderful Panera card!!!  

Taking the grands to Panera today and will save $25!

Really appreciate this and glad I kept availability for the end of the month.

If you hadn't noticed already, take a look to redeem.

Thanks, AARP!

i'm not sure if this pertains to this topic

About a week ago there was a $25  Panera ecard for about 47,000 points ( I'm estimating ) in the Extra Credit section and then it disappeared. What's up with that?

@al45009948  They are pretty popular and I'm thinking they don't last too long when they appear.   I last saw one in the extra credit section on May 1 and I think it lasted more than one day.  I just looked and it's gone although the Carrabbras (includes Outback and Bonefish) card is still there after six days.   This month's Panera was down to $20 but still a nice reward.   

It looks like with "extra credit" the goodies are appearing once a month with perhaps something else added daily....but not always every day I don't think.   Perhaps the "extra credit" idea came up so people from the west coast who have commented have a fairer chance.   In this case the card was there for at least two days.   Amazon card not so much.   I used Carrabbras gift cards last night for a takeout.   (You can also buy $100 worth of them at Costco for $80.  With that $20 discount and my $20 Dine Rewards credit, I felt I was getting a real deal.)

Congratulations to all who were able to get the Panera card!  I always wondered when it was offered. 

 

I'm out here on the West coast, so not fully awake yet @ 6 a.m. PT  (9 a.m. ET).

 

Thanks for the alert!

They really need to move the time for these special offerings to noon EST out of consideration for our West Coast friends. Are you listening AARP??

Conversationalist

It would be great to have some offerings later in the day for us late risers on the West Coast! 

Noon EST as recommended by  BeachGirl23 would be a good time to benefit more people!   The offerings could also be at random times throughout the day to make more interesting. 

 

Hope you're listening AARP!

Thanks for the notice!

I was really unlucky today.  I was on the site from just before 9AM ET until about 9:08AM hoping to see the $25 Panera card.  I saw the instant win change to the magazine offer at 9AM, but, I didn't see the Panera card come up after refreshing for 7 more minutes, so, I thought there wouldn't be a $25 Panera card today.

But, thanks again for the alert.

It's there again!  The $25 card is up as of this posting, not sold out yet.   I have redeemed three times already in March so none for me.  But go get it cyberfriends!

It's 9:35 EST and I just got the Panera Card. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I'll be busy earning points to replenish my stash!

Way to go,  @BeachGirl23 !   So glad you could redeem....this one is really worth our time.

I also got a redemption confirmation on screen. How long does it usually take for an email confirmation? It's been about an hour already.

 

Cheers,

@ralmon  I imagine you read Jodee's response above.   Confimrations usually come within a minute for me.  I keep the browser open in that window until it does.  I'd print the screen if it didn't.   I hope you are in that queue as well.

So Panera is running Free Delivery (using order code FREEDELIVERY) through the end of March. Good time to use that Gift Card.

Bronze Conversationalist

@BeachGirl23  Yes, it is.   And I see they have Doordash this morning.  I've never used that but now is the time...but all spent out this month.  

 

@JoLo49  You have a valid point about the timing.

Thanks, I hadn't, the system generated a new page and Jodee's ended up on the previous one.

Maintenance, ah okay, I can wait a day, or a week 🙂 Nothing much to do outside right now anyway with our lockdown.

 

Cheers,

Ray

I too did not get an email confirmation though I did get the screen confirmation and saw my points decrease dramatically. It has been about 2 1/2 hours now since I purchased the Panera Gift Card. Are we the only 2 who did not get the email confirmation yet had points deducted?

@BeachGirl23 AARP Rewards conducted maintenance on the catalog yesterday. I have verified your confirmation email is in the queue, however, due to scheduled maintenance, your order confirmation email may be delayed. Please reach back out if you do not receive your order confirmation within the next 24 hours.
