Subway sandwiches are the primary reason many students make it through their college years fairly nourished.
When Subway kicked off the $5 footlong promotion in 2008, it was because they wanted to encourage more sales on the weekends and the result was a total buzz.
The $5 footlong was a great success and is back for a limited time.
So if it’s been one too many days or one too many years since you’ve had a great tasting sandwich, choose from any of Subway’s $4.99 footlongs because this is where saving money on food starts.
- $4.99 footlong sandwiches
The five popular footlong favorites available at participating Subway locations nationwide are Black Forest Ham, Veggie Delite, Meatball Marinara, Cold Cut Combo and Spicy Italian.
You can also choose from a bundle of fit-friendly 6-inch subs made with 9-grain wheat bread and fresh vegetables, these sandwiches rounding up 400 calories or less but who’s counting? It’s how much you pay that matters and they cost the same.
- Splitting a footlong
Since a footlong is, well, foot long, you can save money at Subway with splitting a sandwich with a fellow foodie. Plus you may get to customize your sub with different cheeses, vegetables and condiments for each 6-inch portion. Just make sure you’re as polite as possible with your sandwich maker and they’ll provide happily.
- Buy one, give one sandwich promotions
Best deal ever for Subway sandwiches – buy one to get one free. They had this promotion for footlongs in the past, but their most memorable was in 2015 when many locations ran out of bread because of the demand.
Subway had the ‘Buy One, Give One Free’ promotion for National Sandwich Day, which is November 3 when you could buy any sandwich and a 30oz drink to get any sub free or you could purchase a 6-inch sandwich for another one free.
Don’t worry, however, because you won’t have to wait for Nov 3 every year to score a free sandwich. Simply Google Subway BOGO and you’ll be able to find offers through coupon websites.
- Subway deals with signing up
Stay in the know when Subway releases coupons and deals with signing up to receive news from them or if social media is more you, find them on Facebook and Twitter where they often post about special promotions.

While it may look like Subway is cheap with coupons these days, don’t limit your search to them alone because you can find printable coupons and popular deals with other websites, such as retailmenot.com, offers.com, groupon.com.
Some of what you’ll be able to find on a regular basis includes free 6-inch sub when you buy a 30oz drink (remember you can always share with friends), free 20oz fountain drink when you register your Subway card and 50% more meat when you order deluxe.
