How Subway Isn’t Actually a Money-Saving Healthy Alternative

Subway Edison NJI recently received coupons from Subway in the mail. They are a few “buy 1 footlong sub and a drink, get a free footlong sub of equal or lesser value” coupons.

So I decided to take advantage of at least one of them. I went to the Subway location in Edison NJ and looked at the menu since I hadn’t been to one in a while.

I opted to get a buffalo chicken sub with cheddar cheese and a few veggies. I also got extra meat since it looked like it was a whole lot of bread.

I also saw that they had avocado, so I added that to my sub. With all of that and a drink, it came out to $15. It was fine since I got 2 subs out of it, but it would only have been 1 sub and a drink without the coupon.

That’s ridiculous. I could go to a place like Chipotle (which I have) to get less processed extra meat with more fresh veggies and avocado (guacamole) & save at least $3. How does healthier food cost less, yet you get pretty much the same amount of food?

I asked the lady at Subway why the cost went so high. Apparently, the extra meat costs $2-something more (equivalent to Chipotle) and $3 more for avocado (almost $1 than Chipotle). That seems ridiculous to me, but at least I got 2 meals out of it.
