Sandwich lovers who aren't traveling on National Sandwich Day can still celebrate at Subway with a special promotion on Subway's signature footlongs. Starting November 1, guests can buy any footlong sub, and get one free with the promo code FLBOGO on or the Subway app.

The Subway Series, unveiled in July, introduced a whole new way to Subway with 12 signature sandwiches ordered by name or number, allowing guests to stand back and relax as Subway's Sandwich Artists take care of the rest.
