On Monday, August 3, Panera Bread announced guests can now get unlimited 3% Daily Cash Back on Apple Card when they use the Apple Card with Apple Pay in the Panera app, on the Panera website or for at-register purchases in bakery-cafes nationwide. 

According to the company, Panera is the only restaurant to offer 3% Daily Cash on Apple Card as it continues its focus on digital innovation. Daily Cash is added to customers’ Apple Cash card each day and can be used right away for purchases using Apple Pay, to put toward their Apple Card balance or send to friends and family in Messages.

“Panera aims for each guest experience to be simple, easy and fast,” says George Hanson, Panera’s chief digital officer. “More guests than ever are digitizing their wallets and opting for contactless payments as part of our new normal, and Panera wants to be part of that solution. As a brand committed to value, we are excited to be the first restaurant bringing our guests 3% Daily Cash on Apple Card when they purchase their favorite Panera soups, salads and sandwiches.”

Apple Pay creates a safer and more secure way to pay so customers can avoid handing their payment card to someone else, touching physical buttons or exchanging cash. To best meet the needs of customers during the coronavirus pandemic, Panera bakery-cafes nationwide are operating under a strict set of safety measures and protocols for the safety of guests and associates.
