Free Quiznos Sub?

Has anyone else tried to redeem the coupons from Quiznos Million Subs Giveaway?

There seems to be a lot of hubbub over this one, which The Consumerist has covered pretty well. Since since issues with redeeming the coupons seem to be ironing out, I thought it would be safe to try to redeem the coupons both me and the boyfriend received. We got a reminder email from Quiznos last night to print the coupons. We did, and decided to find a location to visit today.

We found a location, although the nearest was 15 miles away. But it was a sort of lame adventure.. what else would we do on a random Saturday? We piled in the car and drove to it. Once inside though, it was a small nightmare. We were told our coupons were no good, they wouldn’t accept them, but then when I tried to find a corporate phone number to find they decided to “try to run the numbers through.” We stood there for a good half an hour while multiple employees told us different things and took info off of our IDs. In the end, though, the coupons were denied and we were told they were fake and no good. Surprising since we had printed the coupons directly from the Quiznos email the night before.

In the end all was not lost – we were so hungry by that point that we went to the Mexican place next door and had the best lobster chimichangas possible. Still, we were bummed, considering we thought we would try something new. And standing in that store for a half an hour smelling the food and then being denied was a whole ball of fun, lemme tell you.

I’m not totally ripping Qiznos a new one yet. I know that there has been a lot of miscommunication on this one between the store locations and corporate. I have emailed millionsubs@quiznos.com with the complaint. I’ll let you know how this turns out.

And as an update to this post concerning my trouble with enrolling in free prescription programs – the issue has seemed to resolve itself. One day GlaxoSmithKline just started randomly sending me bottles of my medication – granted, it’s what the prescription was for, so I won’t complain. AstraZeneca was actually a pretty good sport – after the 3rd phone call where they had “not received anything from my doctor” when I know the doctor faxed something in, in exasperation I said “What ARE you guys? Is this really a prescription program? Or an illegal drug front? What are you guys selling?!”

I really wouldn’t recommend that technique for someone trying to enroll, but the guy on the other end of the line was a great sport, laughed, and gave me his personal fax number. A week later I had the meds. So good for both of the companies.

There are some great blog posts coming up – one in which I ponder the price of $20 chicken breasts and decide to debone a whole chicken (it’s just chilling in the freezer now and I am scared shitless) and review awesome and inexpensive makeup. Good stuff!

    I printed and redeemed my Quiznos coupon last Thursday and had no problems whatsoever. YMMV.

    I signed up for the free Quizno’s sub and decided to “hold” it in my e-mail so I could print it and then have 5 days to use it. I read that just signing up didn’t hold your sub, and that all 1,000,000 had been given away, so I was mildly pissed but figured whatever. Then I got an e-mail from Quizno’s saying that actually, if I printed my coupon *right now* I would still get my sub. I went through to print, everything was great until I clicked “print coupon now”, a little message popped up telling me that I had successfully printed, and absolutely nothing came out of my printer. Of course then I couldn’t re-print it, and now I guess the offer is over. Lame!

    Interesting. I tried to print the quiznos coupon last week and somehow the “printer ate it”- and I can’t print another one. Probably for the better.

    Don’t let that chicken be the boss of you, show it who’s the woman! I was like you before I cut it up the first time and now it’s not too bad. It’s still a tad intimidating but it’s one of those things that I think you really get better at with practice.

    downtown quiznos does accept the coupons, but i think they close at 5.

    That sucks that you had problems redeeming your coupon. I had no problem printing mine or using it at my normal Quiznos.

    I just came across your blog today and I’m liking it so far! 🙂
