Amex Members Can Get 4 Free Months of Panera’s Unlimited Sips Club

If you’re a fiend for coffee, tea, soda, etc., then American Express and Panera might have a deal on tap for you. Currently, Amex customers can claim a 4-month trial of the fast-casual chain’s Unlimted Sips Club, entitling them to a bevy of beverages.

Separate from the Amex Offers feature I’ve written about before, this deal can be found on the American Express offers page (sidenote: I’m totally bookmarking this site as there are other offers of note on here too). To qualify, you’ll need to be located in the United States and have an eligible U.S. American Express card. Unfortunately, this deal is also not available to current Unlimted Sips Clubs members. But, anecdotally, it does seem as though this will work if you were previously a member, as I was able to join despite taking advantage of an earlier offer. This offer is set to expire on December 31st of this year.

So what exactly is the Panera Unlimited Sips Club? Well, as a member, you’ll be able to enjoy coffee, tea, fountain beverage, or Charged Lemonade (lemonade with caffeine, available in a variety of unique flavors). This isn’t even a once-a-day sort of deal; you can claim your included beverage every two hours — and get free refills while in the store. Basically, you shall not go thirsty.

Per usual, with this offer, you’ll be agreeing to start paying the monthly price should you fail to cancel before your free months end. On that note, I did find something confusing regarding the price. When I signed up, it stated that I’d begin paying $11.99 per month afterward. However, the current monthly price I see on Panera’s site is $10.99. I’m not sure whether this means they intend on raising the price soon (the terms do say “as of 10/12/22”) or something else is at play, but it’s a bit strange if you ask me.

Provided that you have a Panera located anywhere near you (or plan on traveling to a city where they have them) and have an eligible American Express card, it may be worth giving this offer a shot. Of course, if you don’t end up making use of it or just don’t want to pay $11.99 a month for it, you’ll want to be sure to cancel before your renewal hits. Luckily, the date of that event is clearly stated when you sign-up, so I’d recommend setting a calendar reminder for yourself. Other than that, enjoy the free drinks!
