THIS IS A SERIOUS SUBJECT. SO SERIOUS THAT I CONSIDERED WRITING THIS POST IN ALL CAPS. BUT I’M ONLY GOING TO DO THAT WHEN I REALLY WANT TO MAKE A POINT EXTREMELY CLEAR.
In these troubles economic times, a lot of people are looking for a good deal. People are a little more frugal on everything, even Turkey Sandwiches. The sandwich joints have taken notice. Subway has the $5 Footlong and now Quizno’s has a pick two for $5 bucks.
Ahh, but be careful. It’s easy for that $5 budget meal to turn into a $10 ripoff. So how do you avoid that? It’s pretty easy actually:
AVOID THE COMBO MEAL!
Everyone assumes that the combo meal is a good deal, But it’s not. It’s a complete ripoff. If you get the $5 Footlong combo meal at Subway, you’re going to drop close to $9 bucks when it’s all said and done. Same thing at Quizno’s.
Jimmy John’s has figured this out too. Their subs cost $5.95, but if you add chips and a drink you’re dropping close to $10.
AVOID THE COMBO MEALS. YOU DON’T NEED THE CHIPS. DRINK WATER, SODA IS BAD FOR YOU. AVOID THE COMBO MEAL… UNLESS YOU’RE A SUCKER
