Does the 5 dollar footlong make you wanna eat more at subway?

Personally, I believe it's a really fulfilling lunch just for 5 bucks. I live in New York and there's a Subway restaurant just about anywhere. I think this deal has been very good, based on the amount of people I always see waiting in line to buy their sandwich. I think they should make this a permanent deal. In fact, the 5$ idea has been so good, that even quiznos or blimplies (do not remember at the moment) had to come up with a similar idea to kkep up witht he competition. Do you find yourself eating more at subway since they started the 5$ sale? Would you eat at Quiznos or Blimpies if they had the same prices??

I love the 5 dollar footlongs. The commercial is really catchy too. I have been going to subway more frequently because of it. I didn't know that Quizno's had that going on to. I never usually go there but if they have the same deal I would probably go there to compare.

I haven't seen the commercial, but we've been eating at Subway a LOT since they started this promotion and eating at Quiznos less, even though that used to be our favorite sandwich. Now Quiznos has the $5 deal too, but we have gotten used to Subway. However, just yesterday one Subway location refused to honor the $5 price even though they had it posted on their window and on their menu and even on a sign on the counter top specifically stating which sandwiches were included. We had to assert ourselves at the register, lol. That does not make us like Subway any less, but we sure won't be going back to that particular location.

I have found that a foot long sub to be just way too much to try to eat. It really is enough to feed three people. It is a good way to share a meal at a very reasonable cost. A foot long sub really doesn't fit the image of being a good place to eat to lose weight. I did have a foot long at quiznos The other day with my grandson and we decided that we prefer subway's sandwiches better.

I agree Subway subs are very fulfilling and they are also very healthy for you,unlike other fast food places ,me and my fiance have started going to Subway more often since they started the five dollar deal,and I wish they would make it permanent,because then they would get more business,and other fast food places would lose business,so maybe they would make their food healthier.

Where I come from the foot longs were five dollars to begin with so it is not a deal for us. So we don't go any more then we used too. the only thing it has done is make my kids ask for it more.

Welcome to mylot! Yes I notice the "Subway" near me has been doing more business since they started charging $5.00 for the foot long. I too have been in there more than before. If I had a Blimpie close to me and they had the same prices I would go to Blimpie, it has always been a favorite of mine.
