I ate lunch at a Subway yesterday that had a sign on the door announcing the end of the free sandwich stamp program due to "counterfeiting". The program is going to cease to exist sometime in August. I went to Subway's web site, but couldn't find anything about it, but then saw this article on Yahoo that confirms it.

For cheapskates like me, this royally sucks. The free sandwich card has been a staple of my fast food dining since I was a little kid (I still remember "double coupon Wednesdays" in Atlanta).

You would think that Subway could investigate some sort of scannable card to defeat forgery. I think they are just taking the easy way out to rid themselves of the program. Too bad... I can definitely say that they will get less business from me as a result.
