Arby’s is giving away free sandwiches — here’s how to get one

  • Arby's is offering free sandwiches to anyone who subscribes to the company's email newsletter and buys a drink at one of its locations.
  • The company has found success in recent years due to its creative marketing and advertising strategies.
  • Other sandwich chains are offering time-sensitive promotions on November 3 as a part of National Sandwich Day, including Subway, Jersey Mike's, and Quiznos.

Arby's has been surging in recent years due in part to revamped advertising and marketing strategies. The chain posted its best sales year ever in 2016, bringing in $3.7 billion in revenue, and found creative ways to reach out to customers, like sending free meals to people who poked fun at the chain and using Facebook to engage with niche demographics.

The company values customer engagement so much that it's willing to give a free sandwich to anyone who subscribes to its email newsletter and buys a drink at one of its locations. Though the promotion has not been heavily advertised, it's easy to access on the company's website. If you click on the "Get Deals" tab, you'll be directed to a form that allows you to register for the newsletter and receive a coupon.

10 money-saving fast-food hacks

Restaurant: McDonald’s

Hack: Order two four-piece nuggets instead of one six-piece. It’s cheaper, you get more nuggets and you get more sauces. Score.

Restaurant: McDonald’s

Hack: Order a McDouble without the ketchup and mustard but with lettuce and Big Mac sauce. You'll pay for the Big Mac taste for the price of a McDouble.

Restaurant: Chipotle

Hack: Order half of one protein and half of another kind (like chicken and steak). You’ll almost always get more than half of each and end up with up to 1.5x the protein in your burrito or bowl for the price of a normal portion.

Restaurant: Arby’s

Hack: Order two junior roast beef sandwiches instead of one regular classic. You'll end up with more meat for a lower price.

Restaurant: Jamba Juice

Hack: Substitute any ingredient in any smoothie for the same price. If you’re craving a smoothie with non-fat yogurt instead of mango, or extra strawberries instead of blueberries, customize it to your liking without any extra charge. It will save you more than being charged for creating your own smoothie from scratch.

Restaurant: Jack in the Box

Hack: Order two Jr. Bacon Cheeseburgers and combine them into one for a much cheaper version of a Bacon Ultimate Cheeseburger.

Restaurant: McDonald’s

Hack: Order a sausage McMuffin off of the dollar menu but ask for the sausage to be substituted with egg—an egg McMuffin for a dollar.

Restaurant: Any pizza place

Hack: When you call to order delivery, ask if there were any orders that weren’t delivered—the pizza place will often give you those orders for a discounted price (perfect if cold pizza is your thing.)

Restaurant: Subway

Hack: Order a Double Steak and Cheese Sub instead of the Philly Cheese Steak Sub—you’ll get the same sandwich at a normal foot-long price.
