I truly feel like bagels are an underrated food. If you gave me the option of having a muffin, a donut, or a bagel, I would choose a bagel 99.9% of the time. If you love bagels as much as I do, there is a way to get free bagels for the REST OF THE YEAR. And not just any bagels... we're talking high-quality bagels. We're talking Panera Bread bagels.

According to Thrillist, Panera Bread has a fantastic end of the year deal for their customers. If you sign up for their MyPanera Rewards Program (which is totally free to do), you can get a free bagel every day for the rest of 2018. It's only the 11th, so that's a lot of bagels!

Now, as with any great deal, there are a few rules. First of all, if you're already a MyPanera Rewards member, you're out of luck. This is for new members only. Secondly, this does not include cream cheese or other spreads, so you'll have to dish out the cost for those. And finally, the offer is in-store only, so don't think Panera is going to start delivering you free bagels every morning.

I eat at Panera probably once a week, so the fact that I haven't signed up for this yet is fate. The universe clearly wanted me to gain 30 pounds before the end of the year. I signed up within two minutes of reading the article, and seeing this email subject line in my inbox this morning filled me with glee:
