1-Subcard®

Subcard® is a physical and/or virtual card issued by us. The Subcard® can be used as a gift card which is loaded with Subway® gift dollars, or a rewards card which collects Subcard® reward dollars.

Subcard® is non-transferable and is only for your own use at Subway® restaurants participating in the Subcard® Program in Australia and on the Website/s and the Subway® app.

Subcard® is not a credit or charge card and cannot be exchanged for cash or used for any orders placed via a third party delivery platform or food aggregator.

Your Subcard® is our property. You must not copy or reproduce your physical or virtual Subcard® or interfere with the operation of any physical or virtual Subcard®.

2-Subway® eGift Cards

Subway® eGift cards can be purchased from the Subcard® website (subcard.com.au), Subway® app or online ordering Website, either for yourself or for another person you nominate in the purchase process.

At the time of purchase, you must select an amount between AU$10 to AU$100 to be purchased and loaded onto the Subway® eGift card as gift dollars. Purchasers are responsible for checking that the amount of gift dollars is correct at the time of purchase. The order for a Subway® eGift card will be completed by filling out the required details and clicking the "submit" button. The Subway® eGift card will then be sent to the selected email address, and a receipt confirmation will be sent to you.

You do not need to register a Subway® eGift card to use it. You can present a valid Subway® eGift card at any participating Subway® restaurant to use the gift dollars available on the Subway® eGift card to purchase Subway® products except for Subway® gift cards or adding credit to your Subcard® account (see section 5 [Subway® gift dollars and using your Subcard® as a gift card] for more details). Your gift dollars balance will appear on your receipt each time you make a purchase using a Subway® eGift card at a participating Subway® restaurant, or if registered it will display in the Subcard® account balance on the Subway® app or Website.

Subway® eGift cards will be void and not redeemable if they are defaced, mutilated, altered or tampered with in any way.
