Subway Is Giving Away 10,000 Free Sandwiches, But You Need A Very Specific Photo On Your Phone

Did you know that Nov. 3 is National Sandwich Day? I didn't, but Subway definitely did.


The chain is celebrating National Sandwich Day by giving out 10,000 free Subway sandwiches...but there's a small catch.

You have to enter to win one of those free sandwiches by submitting a photo of you traveling on an airplane, in the dreaded middle seat.

Yep, the idea is that if you're one of the poor souls "sandwiched" in the middle seat on your flight on National Sandwich Day, then you deserve a chance at a free Subway sandwich. At last, something that those fancy-pants first class passengers don't get to have!


You can enter the sweepstakes starting on Nov. 3 at by uploading your middle seat photo. Technically, you're supposed to be traveling on Nov. 3, but I'll bet that if you happen to have a pic of you riding in the middle seat saved on your phone, no one will know the difference. Oh, and you have to upload your pic by the end of the day on Nov. 4!

If that all sounds like too much work for you, there's still a way you can get a free sandwich: Starting Nov. 1, Subway will be doing a buy one, get one free deal for footlong subs in participating US stores. Just use the promo code FLBOGO when ordering online through or the Subway app. So, you'll have to buy a sandwich to get your free one, but two for the price of one ain't bad.
