Panera offering one FREE bagel every day from July 2–4.

If you’ve been fully vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus, you can get a freebie this holiday weekend. Beginning on Friday, July 2, 2021, just show proof of vaccination at any participating Panera Bread restaurant and you’ll get a free bagel of your choice (in-store only). The promotion is running through Sunday, July 4, while supplies last. Panera is just one of several companies offering up a freebie to help get everyone vaccinated against the disease.

During the pandemic, Panera launched several programs to help provide food for families, including donations to food banks and other non-profits. Panera also provided family meals to employees to help feed their families during the shutdown.

"During the past year, we have focused on uniting and serving our entire Panera family; our guests, associates, and communities. Today, we are proud to continue our work through support of the 'We Can Do This' campaign," said Niren Chaudhary, CEO, Panera Bread. "We have come through one of our nation's greatest crises by supporting one another, and now, together, we can all take a simple act that will help our communities overcome this pandemic.”

Customers can choose from Panera’s large selection of bagels, including favorites like cinnamon crunch, chocolate chip, and everything. The offer is valid for one each day, so you could potentially get three free bagels if you’re a frequent diner at Panera.

You still have time to take advantage of other vaccine-freebies, too. Through the end of the year, stop into Krispy Kreme and you’ll get a free donut. You can also get free beer from Budweiser by visiting and registering for a free $5 credit towards your purchase.
