November 3 is National Sandwich Day, so it’s time to eat a sandwich and maybe some free chips along with that.
This day hits on the birthday of John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich. Some say the sandwich was invented when he was playing cards and some say it was invented when he was working for the navy. There isn’t anything definitely confirmed about how the Earl invented the sandwich, but if you’re interested about the history of National Sandwich day, you can read Heavy’s article about the day here.
Here are the deals to honor the Earl:
Buy One, Get One Free at Subway
For the third year in a row, Subway is offering a deal to participate in National Sandwich Day. Celebrating the day as World Sandwich Day, Subway is offering buy one get one deals in 60 countries at more than 40,000 locations.
When you go to Subway on November 3 and buy a sandwich and a drink, you’ll get a free sandwich of equal or lesser value.
Not only is Subway offering free food for you and maybe a buddy, but they’re also using the day to help fight world hunger. When you redeem a buy one, get one offer at Subway on November 3, the chain will donate 1 meal to Feeding America, a hunger relief organization.
Free Roast Beef Sandwich at Arby’s
It’s not exclusively for National Sandwich Day, but you can get a free roast beef classic with the purchase of a drink when you sign up for Arby’s newsletter. This has no stated end date, so it’ll be good for more than just November 3.
The fast food restaurant has a history of celebrating National Sandwich Day by offering 99 cent sandwiches at participating locations and posting on their social media accounts about their favorite sandwiches. With their Twitter page gaining publicity for using pop culture to sell food, it’s likely the company will have a lot of posts coming out about the day.
Keep your eye on their Twitter. It’s not too late for them to announce a deal at the last minute in honor of the Earl of Sandwich’s birthday.
