Subway will give free subs to one person for life if they change their name to Subway

Subway will give free subs to one person for life if they change their name to Subway

How would you like a lifetime supply of Subway?

All that bready, meaty, salady goodness could be yours if you do one tiny, little thing: legally change your first name to Subway.

I don't know about you but I think Subway Donnelly kind of has a bit of a ring to it.

Anyone who is keen on being referred to as Subway for the rest of their goddamn life can sign up at SubwayNameChange.com between August 1 and August 4.


The sandwich gods will then choose someone to make the ultimate sacrifice for unlimited subs and drinks from the restaurant.

“Subway will select one lucky winner to earn free sandwiches and assume an iconic new identity,” the press release reads.

In order to enter, you need to be a legal resident of the United States and be at least 18 years old (19+ in Alabama and Nebraska, and 21+ in Mississippi).


The company is even going to cover the winner’s $750 legal fees in order to make it easy and 'effortless to become Subway and enjoy a lifetime of delicious subs'.

The person will have four months to show the company proof that they've officially changed their name before they can start living in sandwich heaven.

If you read the fine print, the actual prize is $50,000 in Subway vouchers. So, whoever wins will have to figure out how to ration out their sub vouchers so they don't spend them all in the first year. Like I would.


According to the Social Security Administration, Subway was not in the top 1,000 most popular baby names in the US over the past century but who knows, maybe this competition will start a trend?

Last year, Subway also gave James Kunz free subs for life after he got a foot-long baseball jersey-themed Subway Series logo tattoo.

Kunz told TODAY.com he was 'kind of chunky' as a teenager and eating subs helped him on his health journey.

“Because of that, I have kind of a brand loyalty," he said.


“I said, ‘No, no, I’m totally serious about this. I love Subway, and I’d be pumped to get this tattooed and get Subway for life', and so I went for it.

“And I’m super glad I went for it. It was a total blast.”
