Troubles With Redeeming Quiznos Free Sandwich Coupons

Troubles With Redeeming Quiznos Free Sandwich Coupons

Looks like some Quiznos aren’t too happy about the free sandwich campaign. Readers report interactions ranging from coupons being denied, to local franchises making up new limitations on it (like only certain sandwiches are eligible, or requiring drink and chip purchase), to being treated like thieving jerks. The coupon says the offer is only good at “participating stores,” but doesn’t say anything that in lieu of free sandwich the coupon will be exchanged for rude attitudes. Inside, the conflict between corporate, the franchises, and the customer caught in-between. Oh, and yes, they do check IDs.
