  1. Pick up a card at your local Subway or retail outlet.

  2. Create an account at the Subcard section of Subway's UK website (see Resources). Creating an account allows you to manage your cards and accounts. The account registration form asks for your name, date of birth, post code, e-mail address, an account password and a security question and answer. You will be sent a confirmation e-mail. Following the link in the confirmation e-mail grants you access to your account on the Subway website.

  3. Register your card. Registering your card allows you to track how many points you have, and see if you qualify for any promotional offers. Login to your account and you will see an icon that says, "Add new card." Input the numerals located on the back of the card and press "Add card" to complete the registration.

  4. Go to any participating Subway location and purchase your food, using the card to collect the points. Present it to the cashier for him/her to swipe. This usage activates your card and allows you to begin collecting points that you can redeem for rewards.

  5. Tip

    You are able to register multiple cards to a single account. You can track how many points you have earned by checking your account.


    Not all Subway locations participate in the Subway Card program.
