Subway Stamps

Ok Ok I'm pissed!!!

Last night I found out something and confirmed it today with my local subway.

Subway corperate is doing away with Subway stamps!

Why you might ask!! Because some arsehole sold his Subway stamps on EBay!!!

I eat Subway like crazy! Anything to keep me away from cheeseburgers and freedom fries !

So I'm a little upset...I was told by one my local Subway manager that they are going to start up some other type of promotion but she was sure what! I was told by somebody else that they are just going to bring them back later...

Anyway, I had to vent about it a bit, and wondered if we should email them our complaints...or should we just hunt this EBay guy down and flog him!!

They are still giving them out around here ! man as much as we eat at subway, we get free subs all the time. This F'n blows. what difference does it make if they are sold on ebay..the food was already paid for, so a free sub is a free sub. WTF !!!!!!!!! This really blows!!!!!

Unless the guy who sold them was a subway employee ! but still, why penalize the rest of us that look forward to those free subs!!!!

That's the only thing that I can think of too. My guess is that he was keeping the ones that customers didn't want, and then selling them. One of my tenants used to work at subway and he would bring me stamps sometimes. Said that if the customer doesn't want the stamps, he just tears them off and sets them on the counter. I've also had other employees give me 3 or 4 stamps just for buying a 6 inch sub. I've had many a free sub that I didn't earn.

apparently there is more than one culprit...

http://search.ebay.com/subway-stamps...omZR40QQsojsZ1

I had a buddy of mine, former co-worker, who used to be part owner of a subway, he'd bring in extra stamps all the time for us... better use up what I have left quick huh..

THIS is why they're doing away with the program. Thieving employees, no doubt about it.

Unless the E-bay stamps were stolen, why should Subway care. you buy the subs and get the stamps, why should they care if I get the free sub? They got their money. Now if the stamps are stolen...that is a criminal matter

the majority of these were probably stolen by employees..who in their right mind would actually save up 5,000 + stamps, then sell them for next to nothing on ebay.

better yet, why would u sell these in the first place, in such a bulk number.. u know subway has to be investigating these peeps.

I know Twisty doesn't hate Subway. He's like me and loves Subway! However, he will HATE this idea!

Last time I went to Skudway and got a value meal it ended up costing me just under $10. For fast food that seems a bit high. Especially considering I can go eat at the Thai place and spend less and get a way better meal, and also help keep some illegal aliens in this country. LOL BUt for thos Subway lovers I really feel for you NOT! LOL
