(NEXSTAR) – It’s just as the Earl of Sandwich would have wanted. In celebration of National Sandwich Day, sandwich shops across the country are treating Americans to cheap subs and hoagies on November 3.

Local chains—like Cardona’s and Dibella’s—and national chains—including Subway, Jersey Mike’s, and Panera—are celebrating the occasion with sandwich-positive promotions. They include free food, buy-one-get-one subs, and even custom “sandwich art,” among other deals and discounts.

Looking to stuff your sandwich-hole with a sensibly priced sammie? Head to one of the following shops (and prepare to download their apps) for a deal that would make the Earl of Sandwich proud.

Cardona’s Market

At Cardona’s, they turned National Sandwich Day into a fundraiser for people facing food insecurity. For every large sandwich bought at Cardona’s on Wednesday, they’re giving $1 to support local nonprofits meal delivery services. They’re located in Albany, Latham, and Saratoga Springs.

Cardona’s Market also has a National Sandwich Day Instagram contest. Anyone who orders a party sub—which is enough to feed a small army—for the office until Friday, and shares it on social media, can win half off on their next party sub.

DiBella’s Subs

At DiBella’s every day this week is National Sandwich Day! They’re offering free delivery all week for orders on their DiBellas.com website.
