From Subway to Quiznos, these are National Sandwich Day promotions to prepare for.
This Friday, November 3, you can celebrate the birth of John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich, with National Sandwich Day. Though the 18th-century earl is popularly credited with inventing the sandwich, true sandwich historians should note that Jewish religious leader Hillel the Elder is recorded as having put meat and herbs between slices of Matzah all the way back in the first century CE, alongside other non-western flatbread eaters.
Regardless, the many National Sandwich Day promotions out there mean there's plenty of great sandwich deals across the nation on Friday, and we've compiled them for you here.
