When I can’t be bothered cooking, Subway is one “fast food” restaurant I turn to for a healthier option than a greasy burger and fries. And the kids love it too!
Here are my favourite ways to save cash when dining at Subway.
Customize half-n-half footlong subs
If you’re taking the whole family to Subway, it makes sense to split your footlong subs in half and customize each half depending on what different members of the family want. Not only will this save on squabbles, it’ll save you cash, too. Buying six-inch subs on their own ends up costing more than just buying footlongs and customizing each half, especially if the whole family is eating. Just request a footlong cut into two with different salads, meats and condiments at the start of your order and you’ll end up saving a lot of money.
Tell Subway Customer Survey
Subway Restaurants are after your opinion to help improve their stores. On each receipt there are the details on how the website to visit and your login details. Spend 60 seconds completing the survey and once done you will receive a special code to get a Free Cookie – sounds like a win to me.

Don’t buy add-ons
The add-ons at Subway are what usually end up making your order bill higher than you originally planned. If you walk into Subway planning to buy a sub, just buy the sub – no drinks or cookies. If you’re thirsty, just ask for a free cup of water. But if you absolutely must have something extra (or the kids are nagging for something sweet), buy cookies. Just make sure you buy three so you get the quantity discount.
Follow Subway on social media
If you’re a regular customer at Subway or you just love a great deal, be sure to follow their Facebook and Twitter accounts. Subway tends to avoid having coupons so following their social media accounts is the best way to keep up-to-date with any exclusive discounts and promotions that they offer.
Toasted subs cost more in California
If you’re lucky enough to live on the west coast in California (or you’re a visitor), remember that Subways in the state of California charge extra to get your sub toasted. This is because a toasted sub is considered hot food and the state charges sales tax for anything hot. So stick to fresh subs if you live in California.
Join the Subway rewards program
If you’re a regular customer at Subway, definitely consider joining their rewards program. The free Subway Rewards Card lets you start earning points as soon as you sign up. For every dollar spent, you’ll earn 1 point and you get 50 free points just for signing up. For 75 points, you’ll get a free footlong, 50 points will get you a free 6 inch, 20 points for a free drink and 10 points for a free cookie. So simple!
