subway restaurants subway subway restaurants veterans day scam north lauderdale, Florida
*Consumer Comment: I was also taken advantage of by Subway
*UPDATE Employee: I am very sorry.
Advertisments are saying Veterans can get a free 6 inch sub at subway restaurants. This is false!
Subway is taking advantage of Veterans Day to get free publicity and then not coming through with its offer to veterans. This makes it look like a deceitful advertising progam.
Subway's free sandwich for veterans is a VERY limited offer at only a few participating restaurants in only a few locations. They fail to mention this and hide this behind a statement that it is only available from participating shops even though it is only available in very few places.
Advertisments are saying Veterans can get a free 6 inch sub at subway restaurants. They do not mention the limited availability.
Unaware of this, I visited 2 subway shops in the area and was told they would not honor the promotion. I called 4 others in the area and was told the same.
I called corporate headquarters and was told it was only available at participating subway stores in certain cities. Only 2 cities in Florida (orlanda and one other).
This limitation on the offer is not communicated when they advertise their support for Veterans and it comes across as telling half truths to get the publicity!
