Where do I get a Subcard®?

You can get your physical Subcard® card free from any participating Subway® restaurant, simply ask for one at the time of your purchase.

You can also get a virtual Subcard® by downloading the Subway® app.  Simply visit your app store and search for ‘Subway Australia’. The Subway® app is available on iPhone and Android mobile devices.
Once you have downloaded the app, complete the registration steps and a virtual Subcard® will automatically be linked to your account.

What are the benefits of the Subway® app?

If you have an iPhone (iOS) or an Android phone, you can download the Subway® app on your mobile. By downloading the app, you will be able to:

  • Order from your phone with just a few swipes.
  • Automatically earn rewards dollars each time you buy.
  • Receive exclusive promotional offers and vouchers direct to your app.
  • Freeze your account if your mobile phone is lost or stolen.

What are reward dollars and how many do I earn?

Reward dollars are our way of rewarding you for being a loyal Subway® guest. You will automatically earn reward dollars every time you make a food or beverage purchase at a Subway® restaurant and scan your Subcard® (either a physical Subcard® or using the QR code on the virtual card via the Subway® app). You’ll also automatically earn reward dollars every time you make a purchase through the Subway® app or when logged in to the Subway® online ordering website.

Please note it’s not possible to earn reward dollars when purchasing Subway® through Delivery platforms such as Uber Eats

The actual value of the reward dollars you receive depends on the promotions currently running. The best way to see how many reward dollars you are getting is from your receipt. You can also go online at www.subcard.com.au or log in to the Subway® app to check your Subcard® balance.

What can I redeem my Subcard® reward dollars on?

Once you have reached a minimum balance of $3 reward dollars and your Subcard® has been registered, you can use this balance to purchase any item on the menu, and you can even use it to pay for part of your purchase transaction. Reward dollars cannot be redeemed for cash.
To register your Subcard® visit www.subcard.com.au

Do my Subcard® reward dollars and credit on my account expire?

Reward dollars will automatically expire 12 months after the date that you earn them. Credit loaded onto your Subcard® account will automatically expire 36 months after the date that you, or the person gifting you the credit, loaded the credit onto your Subcard®.

Can I earn reward dollars or load credit on my physical Subcard®, and redeem it using the virtual Subcard®?

I don’t have a virtual card; do I have to activate my physical Subcard® card?

Yes, in order to redeem reward dollars you need to activate your physical Subcard® card by registering it at www.subcard.com.au. If you don’t register your physical card, you will still be able to earn reward dollars, but you will not be able to redeem them.

What kind of mobile phone do I need to use the Subway® app and the virtual card?

The Subway® app (including the virtual Subcard®) is available on  iPhone (iOS) & Android phones.

How do I use the virtual card?

For in restaurant purchases, just scan the QR code shown in the Subway® app on our in-restaurant system at checkout. Scanners in restaurant will be able to read both the QR code on your phone and those on physical Subcard® cards.

For all online purchases made via the Subway® app or when logged into Online Ordering website, reward dollars will be automatically earned without having to scan the QR code on your app.

If you already have a Subcard® account, head to merge cards and add your Subcard® gift card details.

I didn't have my card or mobile at time of purchase or there was a problem with my card or mobile, can I still get my reward dollars?

If you don’t have your card or phone with you at the time of purchase, you can still earn reward dollars if you provide your mobile number to the Sandwich Artist® at the point of purchase.  Please note, the mobile number you provide needs to be the one linked to your Subcard® account in order for reward dollars to be earned and linked to your account.

If you don’t have your card or phone when you purchase and you don’t provide your mobile number, please note reward dollars cannot be earned at the point of purchase, and reward dollars cannot be added retrospectively to your account.
