Panera's...


Just a little note...if you have a Panera's bagel card, one that they stamp every time you buy bagels, and then give you a free bagel order after the card is full, they will only be redeeming the cards up until Aug 1st.

I was in the store yesterday, and the guy apologized to me about it...I just figured it wasn't cost effective anymore for them, but he explained that two employees in a NJ store made up 100 cards, stamped them all, and sold them on ebay!! So now the entire chain has had to discontinue the cards. Amazing...the benefits and pitfalls of the internet abound!

**So strange...the cards are still up on ebay for at least the next 24 hours... http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQfgtpZ1QQfrppZ25QQsassZjosephwilliams9389

***actually, a search on ebay for bagel cards turns up quite a few more sellers doing the same thing...so you can pay $5-$10 to get a card that might possibly get you a pack of bagels....why not pay full price and support the store...and these sellers are guaranteeing the card, or your money back, I want to see what happens after Aug. 1st...
