Subway December $2 Sandwiches Fail

Couple of weeks ago, Subway sandwiches began promoting their December "Customer Appreciation" Month with select 6-inch sandwiches for $2.00. The sandwiches that qualify for this offer are Meatball Marinara [meatballs and sauce] and Cold Cut Combo [cold cuts]. I wanted to get this deal for some time now, but only recently I have been freed-up from the stuff that I was occupied with [mostly end-of-semester college stuff and eBay selling], and I also started a couple of new blogs: and also working on another food blog that I yet have to release. Yesterday in the evening I found some time to get out and grab one of these $2 subs, the Meatball Marinara to be exact, becau I like meatballs. Last week I also emailed Subway customer service with inquiry about which locations participate in this $2 December promo, but to my disappointment I received back an email from them with a "scripted" answer that suggested that I go and seek the $2 location myself, since they said " All SUBWAY® locations are individually owned and operated".

On YouTube, their ads are very frequent and I see at least 4 of them every day.

So yesterday I went to the nearby Subway location for the $2.00 Meatball Marinara sandwich, only to find out that the store has closed way before the scheduled closing time.

Their business hours sign indicate that the shop closes at 9:00PM.

And their business information indicate that they close at 10:00PM.

There were at least 30 more minutes to go before their posted business hours sign closing time. There was nothing that I could do because the door was locked and the Chinese cunt that was running around in the kitchen/counter area just waived to me to go away, so went away.

Then I went to another Subway location on 86th Street, which was a block away from the Burger King. At this place, when I ordered the $2 Meatball Marinara sandwich, I was told "no more meatball" by the sandwich artist cunt behind the counter. Then another Chinese guy with glasses behind the counter came by and said that there is nothing that he can do and that I should stop by tomorrow [which is today]. My advice is to never shop at Chinese-run places because these people just do not get the concept of customer service.
