Stay hydrated this summer with Panera Unlimited!

Panera keeps you hydrated with their Unlimited Sip Club Subscription (formerly known as My Panera+ Coffee Subscription)! This subscription lets you score any size or flavor of hot or iced coffee, tea, fountain sodas, and their new Charged Lemonades every 2 hours and FREE unlimited refills while you’re in the café. ☕

Even better, through August 31, you can score a one-month Panera Unlimited Sip Club Subscription FREE when you use promo code ONEMONTH at checkout. You will need to enter a credit card to score this offer, but you won’t be charged until after your free month.

When your free month expires, you will be charged $10.99 for every month after that, so be sure to set a reminder to cancel your subscription unless you’d like to continue with a paid membership. You can cancel at any time, and it’s easy to do so! Just log in to your My Panera Rewards account, visit the subscription section, and follow the directions to cancel.

Note that this offer excludes catered orders and orders placed on third-party delivery sites. Not valid with any other coupon or offer and cannot be combined with any other promotions. Offer is valid for new subscribers only.

  2. breanna-2

    This is a terrible idea so sad to see this.

    • MaiK

      Why is this a terrible idea? It’s free drinks.

      • Jovandi

        explain how this is a terrible idea? I have been using this for months now and love it.

    • jeff

      why is it terrible, do you work there and it will now be super crowded.

      • Ana

        At our panera they are super nice and they just set the cup on the counter and you fill it up 🙌

    • Jovandi

      explain how this is terrible

      • Lo

        I’m pretty sure I put on some pounds from drinking my free sodas 🥹. Maybe that’s what the original poster meant.

  3. Sourkisses

    I love this for Summer use. I love Ice Coffee. I have done this a few times! Fabulous, just Fabulous Thanks Hip2Save!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re SO very welcome! ❤️💞

    • Shawna

      Have you been able to add cream or any flavors?

      • Dana

        They have milk, skim milk, almond milk, and half & half. No flavored syrups, however, they DID have pump bottle of liquid (Monin?) sugar syrup near the iced tea/soda machine area at my location.

  4. Lily

    Thank U for posting! My hubby was already at Panera and got a lemonade while there 😎 Love it!!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      That’s awesome, Lily! You’re very welcome! 🎉❤️

  5. Jessica

    This subscription by far has save me absolutely the most money! I tended to get Starbuck in-between my work shifts to be able to sit and relax before the next one, but now I’m not spending over 100 bucks every month I just swing by Panera! I’m so happy they included their other drinks also I just tried the charged raspberry lemonade and it’s so yummy!!

  6. kp

    So are we supposed to pay $10.99 per month to make use of this deal? Pay 10.99 and get unlimited free selected drinks? I’m confused

    • Del

      Thank you for the clarification. I was also confused. Sounded too good to be true!

      • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

        You’re very welcome!

  7. Jamie

    Can you do drive thru and not buy anything else?

    • Lana

      You guys have a drive thru? 🥺

    • ScrapGal

      I’ve had the coffee/tea subscription and have done this many times. Not sure if that’s changing with the addition of other drinks.

      • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

        Thanks for the helpful comment! Good to know how it has worked for you in the past!

    • Julianne

      Yes, you can get just your free coffee no problem-in store, drive thru, curbside.
      I’ve had the membership before but locations are too far from me to take advantage. Also, I find their coffee very inconsistent and I need to pay extra for it to be to my liking (sugar syrups, etc)

  8. Lana

    I tried all three charged lemonade a couple weeks ago and they are reallyyyyyy good. My favorite is the mango one. I’m excited for this considering every summer, I go to Wendy’s to grab a lemonade. This will save me ALOT of money and it’s even better!

  9. Sue K.

    Woohoo 🎉 free yummy Panera drinks! Thank you 💜 soooo much for this awesome ☀️ and refreshing 🏖️ offer!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re most welcome! Enjoy!

  10. Amber (Hip Sidekick)

    Yes! That’s correct!🙌🤗

  11. LaDonna

    I’ve had this before and I was able to sign up again!

  12. Hannah

    Does this include the Agave Lemonade? I like having a non-caffeinated option.

    • Amber

      I would imagine they just give/leave an empty cup for you to fill up.

    • Alli (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey Hannah – this deal does include their lemonades!

      • Hannah

        Thanks!

  13. Sbh15

    Thank you. I did notice it says free through July 4th and then in the corner it says 10.99 starting July 18 so I’m not sure which day it is but either way it’s great

    • Alli (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re so welcome, happy sipping!

  14. Suzanne

    Does anyone know if this works at locations inside the airport (it’s the only one near me)?Thanks!

    • Michelle W

      The coffee one did. I ordered iced coffee multiple times at the airport (husband is a pilot so we are at the airport often)

      • Suzanne

        Thank you for the info! I volunteer at the airport and am there every week ☕️

  15. Alli (Hip Sidekick)

    You’re so welcome, I’m glad you get to enjoy the new perks too! 🙌

  16. Izzy

    What is charged lemonade? Does it have caffeine?

    • Amber

      Yes it does. You can view it on their website.

  17. Happy Aunt

    Wish they offered more diet options besides just diet pepsi for non coffee/tea drinkers that can’t have all the sugar. (Just in case someone from Panera is reading ;))

    • Sharina

      I agree. Some of these have 60-80g of sugar. It sounds tasty but that’s a lot of sugar for ME personally.

    • MN_Jen

      The Panera’s near me also have Lime Bubly. I fill up my cup mostly with ice and sparkling water, then do a lemonade on the top inch.

  18. Drekoluv

    Is the cold green tea included?

    • Del

      I just signed up and clicked on “Redeem” to start an order online and the Passion Papaya Green Tea is showing up as free.

  19. Wendy

    The mango lemonade is the best, close second strawberry hibiscus

  20. Kristina

    HEADS UP! Just an FYI but those Charged Lemonade drinks have more caffeine than a can of Red Bull. Yikes!! “Each beverage without ice contains the following mgs of caffeine: Strawberry Lemon Mint: 20 fl oz with 259mg and 30 fl oz with 389mg; Mango Yuzu Citrus: 20 fl oz with 260mg and 30 fl oz with 389mg; and Fuji Apple Cranberry: 20 fl oz with 258mg and 30 fl oz with 387mg.”

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Thank you!

    • Amber

      Jeeze. I’m not against caffeine as I like a Pepsi here and there but that’s even worse than caffeine pills 😳

    • Dana

      A gentleman who works at my Panera gave my daughter and I a handy tip…..he said the charged lemonades are made with the agave lemonade (no caffeine) as a base, so you can add some of that to the charged lemonade, to make them lower in caffeine. We also love adding a splash of them to our cup full of Bubly. We’ve loved using this program for the summer, and I’m considering keeping the subscription when it comes time to pay, so my teens can use our nice new Panera for a study spot during the school year!

  21. Carol

    Can I order online and pickup or do I need to sit inside the restaurant? Can the lemonade be ordered without extra caffeine?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      You can do this in-store, drive-thru, or curbside. You can get the non-caffeinated Agave Lemonade, Carol!🤗

      • AF

        How can I order with drive-thru? Do they ask membership number or registered phone number?

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          Hey there! It looks like that should work. You can always let them know when you order, and then it can be applied for you at checkout. You could even call your location before heading out to be certain on how they might honor it for you. Hoping this is helpful! 🥰

      • AF

        How can you order with drive-thru? Do they ask membership number or registered phone number?
        I place an order online for pickup and I need to go inside the store, so it would be nice if I can do drive-thru.

        • Lo

          Just order at drive thru and give them your phone number attached to subscription.

  22. Amy

    Just a heads up, Panera is experiencing a nationwide shortage of large (cold) cups.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh wow! Thanks for the warning, Amy!

      • Jane

        My cafe has been out of large hot and cold cups several times. Today I asked at the counter if they had any more large cups and she told me to take 2 smaller cups instead! (medium?) I got 2 iced coffees and was happy with that!

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          Glad you could grab the two smaller instead! Thanks for sharing, Jane! 💕

    • Amy

      I asked and my location is allowing us to refill our own cups. So you can bring in your insulated cup, Yeti, etc and fill that instead of using their cups.
      Just ask your stores, it might be a good option to save on so many disposable cups!

      • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

        Thanks for that helpful tip, Amy!🤗

      • LaToya

        Ooooo, I should ask about this at ours.
        I have soooo many Panera cups all over my car. An embarrassing, shameful amount …

  23. Vanessa K

    I love this! I go to the kiosk and do a hands free dining use my card and the cups are right there for you to grab. They have a choice of teas, coffees, sodas, and fruity energy drinks.

  24. LaToya

    We have this deal and we use it – a lot.
    We are big tea drinkers and love their cold black tea – that we sweeten with Splenda packets.

    You CANNOT do this curbside if it’s the ONLY thing you are getting. There is a $5 threshold you have to hit before they will bring an order out to your car. So, if this is all we are getting – we order on the app and have to go in and get the cup and serve ourselves. It’s not a big deal. But yes, you can go through the drive-thru and order and show your phone or give your account phone number.

    That fuji apple cranberry tea is delicious – – it says “charged” and I see comments about the caffeine, but I don’t notice feeling a surge or anything? IDK Free sodas too – our Panera has Ginger Ale on their fountain too.

    We are still getting it free from the initial promo a few months ago – but we’ll have to pay the $10.99 starting next month, and we will. The Panera is close to where we live and you can get a free drink every 2 hours – so, when we are coming and going, it’s slick – and worth it – for us.

  25. amyj

    Thank you for posting this! I just signed up to give it a try. My hubby uses the Sheetz drink subscription, and with a Panera right across the street, we’ll both be able to get a drink at the same time! 😉

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      WOOHOO! You are so welcome, amyj! Hope you enjoy! 🥰

  26. Bunny

    I found out about this here on Hip2Save and couldn’t be happier. Absolutely love this Unlimited Sip Club.

    You can also use this subscription to make an Arnold Palmer–agave lemonade and unsweetened ice tea. Since you mix it yourself, you can make it as strong/sweet as you like.

    We’ve had this subscription for two years now and honestly think it’s a great deal. A large iced coffee is $3.19 in my area so the subscription pays for itself in just a few drinks. Since my hubby also has a subscription, it’s a nice way to “treat” a friend to coffee.

  27. CaseyB

    I’ve tried to like the unlimited sip club, but I will probably cancel after my trial is over. I usually just get coffee, but is is never more than lukewarm and they never add my cream to it. Also, I am working from home so I only use it once or twice a week at the most, so it probably isn’t worth getting for me. I do like the idea of it though!!

    • Lana

      Agree. Worst drinks we have ever had. Poured most of them down the drain.

  28. Linda reickard

    For new subscribers only

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for pointing that out, Linda. I’ve added that to the post. 💓

  29. Amy Knightley

    I just signed up and it looks like I am good to go! It looks like I do have the panera rewards but I havent used them in so long….how do they access it at the register, or do I need the app to do all this?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey Amy! You can use your Panera Card in store or enter your phone number associated with your account at checkout. Hope that helps! 💖
