Ready for $1 Subs at Jimmy John’s? Here’s What You Need to Know

Want a great deal on lunch this week?

Go to Jimmy John’s Thursday, April 21, to get a sub for just $1.

The sandwich shop is bringing back this popular promotion in celebration of its annual Customer Appreciation Day.

How to Get a $1 Sub

The promotion is good for in-store orders only.

Go to participating Jimmy John’s between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. this Thursday, and you can get sandwiches #1-6 — ham, roast beef, tuna, turkey, Italian or veggie — plus the J.J.B.L.T. for $1 (plus tax).

If you’re counting calories or carbs, don’t worry — Slims and the Unwich lettuce wrap are included in the promotion. But you might pay extra for wheat bread at some locations.

Subs are limited to “one per person,” but according to the official rules, “If you would like more than one $1 sub, you can go through the line as many times as you like.”

Personal experience tells us those lines are pretty unruly, though, so you might want to cancel your afternoon meetings to get the most out of this deal.

We’re already blocking off a few hours in our calendars.

Pick-up, online and delivery orders will be full price, and the drive-thru will be closed. But don’t worry — Jimmy John’s employees make delightful conversation, and they’ll whip up your sandwich at a disconcerting speed.
