Nearly 10K Subway fans swear to change names for lifetime of free food

What would you do for a Subway sandwich?

Last week, the fast-food chain announced a contest that would offer someone free sandwiches for life — if they just legally changed their first name to “Subway.”

And it’s a tactic that’s actually working.

Subway announced on Tuesday that in just 96 hours, nearly 10,000 people have committed to a lifetime of eating fresh by offering to legally change their name in hopes of being the lucky winner.

In order to enter the contest, hopefuls simply had to offer themselves up for the name change by submitting their full moniker at, which was available until Aug. 4.

The winner will be picked later this month, according to the company, and the company will even cover the $750 in legal fees for the official name change.

The winner will have four months to do make the switch and will be required to show Subway the proof of the name change before they can claim their lifelong prize.

But, there’s one catch, as The Post previously reported: according to the fine print, free Subway “for life” equals $50,000 worth of gift cards.

Still, it’s a pretty impressive feat — or should we say, eat?

Surprisingly, or maybe unsurprisingly, this wasn’t the first time that Subway has offered free food for life by doing something completely outrageous.

Last year, the company offered someone the same deal if they just got a tattoo of a footlong logo from their Subway Series promotion on their sternum or back.

James Kunz, a doctoral candidate from Colorado, ended up getting inked and, in turn, won an endless supply of subs that would be sure to get him through long nights of studying.

“When I was a teenager, I was still kind of chunky,” Kunz explained in an interview with Today Food at the time.

He said that when he decided to get healthier, choosing to eat at Subway was a major factor in his new lifestyle.

“Because of that, I have kind of a brand loyalty,” he admitted.

And he doesn’t regret his decision, explaining that he’s “so glad” that he “went for it,” hailing the whole experience as a “total blast.”

Who knows — maybe he’ll even have some advice for this year’s lucky winner.
