What Is a Subway Gift Card?

A Subway gift card is used for purchasing food and services at Subway restaurants in the United States, Canada, on their website, or the Subway app. You cannot use the card to buy gift cards or exchange them for cash unless mandated by law.

Subway cards come in physical and digital formats, can range in value from five to 500 dollars, and do not have any fees associated with using them.

Does the Card Have an Expiration Date?

Subway gift cards do not have an expiration date, so you can use the card whenever you want without any penalties.

From time to time, Subway provides promotional gift cards that have expiration dates, which are visible on the front of the card. If you’re not sure about the expiration date of the gift card you own, call customer support to confirm.

Can You Reload Your Subway Gift Card?

The short answer is yes. If you run out of balance on your gift card, Subway allows you to reload it so that you can keep enjoying Subway meals whenever you desire. Once you've registered your card at a Subway restaurant, you can reload your card either at their restaurant or on the official website.

What Happens if You Lose Your Gift Card?

If you lose or damage your gift card, Subway will only replace it if you registered the card online. You can contact their customer support team at 1-877-697-8222 to request a new card. Make sure to provide the support agent with your lost gift card’s number and PIN code.
