COUPON FRAUD
Posted by Asspimple on 02/24/2006
BLAINE, MINNESOTA -- Received a coupon for Quiznos, Buy one, get one of equal or lesser value. (Blaine, MN. Store) Once there, they say that they are not honoring that coupon but will give me two dollars off the sandwich...YEY! Perfect "Bait and Switch". They had some lame excuse about contract obligations, whatever! With their prices as high as they are for what you get, I will only go there with a coupon! In the future, I now know that Quiznos coupons are no good(fraudulent), so they will immediately go in the garbage, therefore, I am done eating at Quiznos. If there's coupons out there advertising for YOUR establishment, at least honor YOUR coupons for your customers
and take your complaint up with headquarters if your too cheap to comply with the coupons. I was there with four of my co-workers for lunch in which everyone was disappointed with this little scam. Needless to say, I believe you lost their future business also. At least with the "spendy" menu to begin with, you know up front what to expect to get gouged for, but don't float coupons out there promising "this and that" to lure people to your establishment and then say "oh were not honoring them"....... VERY NICE!!!

I would have done what Basher would do...Gone into the bathroom, take a healthy shyt and left without flushing. Inside the toilet bowl would have been their coupon that they refused to honor.

Alot of those fast food restaurants don't honor coupons because their not all owned by the same franchise.

Tander, either learn how to spell, or else, compose some relative and intelligent posts. I tire reading your grade-school intelligencia.
Posted by Ponie on 2006-02-25:
Come on, guys--don't fight. I don't doubt the coupon stated 'good only at participating locations.' I've found that to be the case with a lot of coupons floating out there. And, look how much the poster paid attention to the reason for not honoring the coupon: 'They had some lame excuse about contract obligations, whatever!' That last expression makes me think this is a teen ager stocking shelves at the local KMart who thinks the world owes him/her a living. (Nothing wrong with that occupation, by the way.) Just looking at the user name gives further indication of the age of the person.

10 to 1 "AP" is a relative to the tan-noodle family. "Not all owned by the same franchise?" What?! "Prices and coupons are honored at PARTICIPATING restaurants".
Posted by slevine on 2008-06-10:
We experienced an even worse case of this at the Simi Valley Quiznos in which they DID accept the coupon yet my order was the exact same net price as my friend's order... and he ordered the same thing!

TOTAL coupon fraud. I mean, he could have just said, "We're not participating in this, we don't accept that coupon." But that isn't what happened, he manipulated the misc. price to give a net cost of no discount. That is Fraud.

The Quiznos where this happened is: 3060 Cochran St., Simi Valley, CA 93065.

Avoid that location.

My Iphone Battery Exploded
Posted by Onlooker on 11/04/2013
While charging my phone, iPhone 3, it popped, and lo and behold there was a distended back, and a separating screen. The battery gave up the ghost.

It made a small noise, and had I not been in the room, it might have done more.

This phone worked fine 2 months ago, but not anymore.

My 10 yr old NoKia works, my cheap buy minutes phones work. .. .not the iphone.
If it was out of date, if software could not be updated that is one issue. This is a defect in the product, its battery / design or mfg. This could have been a fire.

I'm back to not getting an ipad. I'm traveling, not like I can get it fixed at 12:58am.

The phone isn't exactly new, the iphone 3 went out of production a few years ago. And I'm not aware of any chronic design faults with it. But it does sound like the there was a short somewhere. If you got 5 years out of a phone, then that's acceptable IMHO. It's really just the luck to draw though.

Corporate Sucks!!
Posted by 299288user on 10/07/2013
OREGON -- Quiznos corporate sucks!!!! They are complete morons and should not have jobs in this industry. I recently found out two of my favorite employees from the Sherwood Quiznos were fired by corporate, Caleb and Jessica, for one complaint by a customer. This was the first complaint these employees have ever gotten in their entire time of employment.

Corporate didn't bother to care about about the hundreds to thousands of compliments these employees received for what amazing customer service they have had from this establishment when they were there working and how clean their facility was compared to all other Quiznos and other fast food establishments in the area. No they just care about the one complaint by some bored old lady who decided to write to corporate about these wonderful people... I drive from Washington square to come see them when I live five min from the other one.

Quiznos corporate treats their employees like crap and I will never go to a Quiznos again because of this reason these we're two of the best people I have ever had in the customer service world and you are mental for letting them go!!!

I stopped going there once I found mold on my sandwich I got there. the manager is like 'I'm so surprised! we freeze or bread to keep it fresh' really thawed frozen bread? I never went back.
Posted by nikalseyn on 2013-10-07:
You are being somewhat coy. What, exactly was the complaint? If corporate thought it was serious, they would move to immediately terminate one's employment. So, what was the complaint about?
Posted by 299288user on 2013-10-09:
I agree .. I am shocked and can't believe they would get rid of the only people who knew what customer service was at all .. they will definitely be missed ..

Interesting that you agree with your own letter. Shocking! Next time, change the user name before faking a positive comment.

You Have to Purchase Something to Go to the Restroom
Posted by Domino14150 on 10/24/2012
VAIL, ARIZONA -- I am a senior and stopped at a Quiznos on Colossal Cave Rd off I-10 in Vail, Az. I went to the restroom first but the door was locked. An employee was eating a sandwich and saw me, she told me I had to have a key and it was at the counter. I waited for someone to acknowledge me at the counter and finally he did. I asked for the key to the restroom and he asked if I was going to purchase anything. Well that shocked me, I have never been in an establishment that ask me to purchase something before I could go to the restroom. So beware, if you're not going to purchase something at Quiznos, don't try to go to the restroom. However, if you go into the DQ next door, they will be glad to serve you, you don't have to have a key for the restroom and you won't get embarrasssed.

Since this is Vail, it is possible that this establishment is in a location where a large number of non-patrons try to use its restroom. It would be nice for them to have a tasteful sign indicating that it isn't a full service location.
Posted by madconsumer on 2012-10-24:
many establishments offer restrooms to patrons only.
Posted by Elle74 on 2012-10-24:
That would have been bad if the woman had an emergency and couldn't hold it. Some people do have health problems that make it difficult to hold it when they really have to go to the bathroom, and it can be embarrassing. Maybe the employee should use discretion and make a judgement call next time.
Posted by revan on 2012-10-24:
Many moons ago I was an Asst. Manager at a Taco Bell and had just closed the store. An old woman came to the locked door and I opened it and told her we were closed. She told me "Emergency!" and brushed passed me and rushed to the restroom. It was an amusing experience. So the next time they ask you if you are going to buy something just tell them it's an emergency.
Posted by melissa253 on 2012-10-24:
My husband and I were at a Quiznos in downtown Denver and while he was in line I asked for the bathroom key and the guy asked me if I was ordering because the RR is for customers only. I didn't get mad. I said yes.

Good subs Bad franchise! Depends on which location you're going, so trick to hungers!
Posted by Glx on 04/06/2011
HOUSTON, TEXAS -- The Quizno in Hammerly Plaza on Gessner in Houston TX, such a
bad quality, you can count how many slices of lettuce they put. Bread is toasted, burnt on the edge, but still cold and soggy? How ridiculous! The mesquite chicken sandwich taste yuck, it has skin on it, never get mesquite chicken like this anywhere else beore.
No wonder Quizno closed down so many!
Luckily I can get some hot and crispy Quizno subs back to sugarland.

All the Quiznos around here closed up. Quiznos is apparently the worst franchise to get into according to one of my business law professors. Low franchise start up fee + TONS of heavy fees later on = disaster. Although I like their food, I can't say I miss them too much.

The Owner
Posted by Meg80233 on 02/18/2011
THORNTON, COLORADO -- I went into Quiznos tonight as I usually do 2-3 nights a week. Every time, I order the same thing.... Chicken Carbonara with extra sauce no mushrooms large on wheat. They practically know me when I walk in. On this occasion someone I had never run across was there. No problem, I can't wait for her to get to know the usual.: ) This time I wanted to try something different and did. The entire time she assisted me she never smiled. She started to make a sandwich for me and I saw she was using mayo. I don't like mayo so I figured, my husband eats anything I'll have her make his so there is no waste. When I told her to make it tuna instead turkey she gave me a disgusted almost "mom" look. I felt horrible. After it came out of the oven she was there to dress the sandwiches. She never once smiled and seemed like she hated her job. I told my husband I feel I should say something to her. I waited outside until there were no customers and asked the gentleman if that was the manager. I would have been shocked it were had I not found out it was the owner! I was flabbergasted. I proceeded to tell her I felt bad for changing what I wanted on a sandwich and that she hadn't smiled at all. She smiled after I made the comment and then didn't seem to care when I said I felt it was bad customer service. I turned to walk out and outside the doors I looked back and as I suspected she was then talking to the employee with her hand on her hips about what just happened. I will not go back to that one or any other Quiznos. I would rather eat Mc Donald's than go back there. I will be posting on every website I can!

You've always had good service, so because of one night where you were not smiled at, your going to stop going to Quizno's?

Not everyone smiles all the time. Maybe she just received bad news. Who knows, but that's your choice, to give up something you enjoy.
Posted by localgod on 2011-02-19:
We all have days where we've received bad news or something else that puts us out of our element. Sometimes you have to leave your problems at the door and suck it up for a few hours to ensure the customers aren't affected (or is it effected?). What makes it all worth it is when you're having a s**t day and a particular customer puts a smile on your face. Don't we all wish they were like that. Even if the problem was the owner, please don't hold one incident against a place. Try to be that one great customer and we'll try to be that great customer service all-star!
Posted by Ytropious on 2011-02-19:
Some people don't smile OP, we aren't all blessed with bubbly, uplifting personalities. Why take it personally, it's not like she was smiling all day until you showed up, I'm sure she was like that all day. Some people take things entirely too personally.
Posted by trmn8r on 2011-02-19:
You *could* spend time posting this on every website you can find, but first you may want to consider that the bulk of your complaint is a CSR didn't smile.

Maybe this person's mother died that morning. Maybe her husband got drunk and ran over someone in a wheelchair the day before. Maybe she applied for a better job, and found out that day she didn't get it.

When this happens to me, I often try to engage the CSR in some manner. Often they light up and we exchange a few words. Sometimes not. That's life.
Posted by Anonymous on 2011-02-19:
Meg, I've got a smile for you. :)
Put it in your pocket and pull out when needed. Hope it helps. :)
if you are a regular there, and sounds like you are, and had never seen her there before, she was quite probably a new hire, and learning on the job, which can be quite stressful and could crack the smile and break the stride of any of us.
Posted by momsey on 2011-02-19:
There's no such thing as loyalty anymore. A person who loves a business enough to go there 2-3 times a week will then not only boycott that business but also will be posting complaints everywhere simply because someone didn't smile at her.

Verbally Abused by Quiznos Associate
Posted by TheBunny on 02/13/2011
EAGLE ROCK, CALIFORNIA -- I have endured this place through the inept service, thinking the girl behind the counter was trying. I have endured them running out of soup, cheese, bacon,. even some of the meat for the sandwiches.

Tonight, I was running late and in a hurry, I got there a few minutes before closing time. Lights were still on, the doors were still open, the sign in the window was still on, and the clock behind the counter said I still had 5 minutes. I had my order ready, was going to be quick. The woman behind the counter as I walked rudely snapped "we're closed, so I am not going to make your sandwich". I had intended to walk in and ask if it was ok that I place the order, AND ask her if they had anything that they could make easily because I was aware they were close to closing. After her comment, I replied that it didn't seem the case with the lights on, he doors open and the clock saying it is not closing time yet. She then said "it's close to closing, be quick". I had my order ready, and it was a simple order.

I understand that you want to leave, and my order, if it had been done without her constant litany of complaints, and one insult that she was only making my sandwich because it was clear that Quiznos was the only place I was able to afford, would have taken just about 5 minutes. Instead she. locked the doors so I couldn't leave if I wanted to, and called the owner to tell her that she had a late customer who wanted to place an order. Ummmm.....wouldn't it be faster to just make the order? But ok. so she gets off the phone, and finishes making the order. Sort of. First she continued to complain that I was in close to closing. Then she complained that she had to put my fiancee's order through the toaster again because of the time she took to call the owner.

I finished and paid for the food. I would have just left without my order except the order wasn't for me, oh and the fact that I WAS LOCKED IN THE RESTAURANT.

Maybe she locked the door so someone else who saw the lights on and the employee making sandwiches after closing time wouldn't come in the store. I'm sure that person would start complaining that even though it was after closing time, you are currently making serveral sandwiches for that customer, then you should take my order. Then five more people come in even later after closing time all crying that they should take thief orders. Then the owner calls the employing asking why you haven't called in the day's receipt. Then two more people come in because there are people in the store after hours, so the sign posted for store hours must be wrong, wouldn't the doors be locked if the store was closed?
Posted by Venice09 on 2011-02-13:
I agree that she probably spent more time arguing and calling the owner than it took to make the sandwich. If she wanted to close five minutes early, she should have locked the door instead of allowing you to come in and then complaining about it.

I realize that employees want to go home, but not too many people get to leave on time, regardless of the job or the pay. That's just the way it is.
Posted by b1ackm8tal on 2011-02-13:
I can guatantee the reason she locked the door was not to keep you "locked in". If you think about it, by the time she would be done making your order, there's a potential that a line could start to form behind you, and who knows when she would be able to get out of there then. Believe me, I've worked in FF, and it's happened to me. So after that incident, whenever a customer would come in that near to close, I would politely ask them if I could go lock the doors first before filling their order. I never had one say "no". She should have explained to you why she was doing it though. I agree that she should not have had the attitude, but I can sympathize with her.
Posted by GenuineNerd on 2011-02-13:
Still, a pet peeve with many restaurant employees is when the business closes at 11:00 PM, for example, a customer comes in at 10:59 PM wanting to place an order...especially if it is a coffee shop or a sit-down restaurant, and the customer orders "for here". Most such employees would rather, begrudgingly, take the order, rather than to turn the customer away and risk getting disciplined or fired, meaning that serving the customer would delay their time going home. Most restaurant employees are hourly. Sure, because these are minimum-wage positions, some employees would be glad to work that extra half hour, even if it means locking the doors at 11:00 on that dine-in customer, but other employees have families to go home to, or are tired and want to get home and get to bed, especially if their bosses scheduled them to work day shift the next day. Some restaurants also serve their dine-in customers using to-go containers (paper/styrofoam cups and plates, and plastic utensils, instead of glasses/cups, china, and silverware) when it's 1/2 hour or so before closing time, since the staff are in the process of putting away the dishes, glasses, and silverware, and cleaning and closing up the kitchen. Still, even last-minute customers would complain if they are served their orders to-go, because they expect that same service at 10:59 PM that they get if they came during lunch or dinner rush. And there have been restaurant employees fired because those last-minute customers felt rushed while they were eating. This also depends on the owner or manager of such a restaurant, regarding the policies of serving last-minute customers. Some are nice enough to serve the last-minute straggler, while others just want to clean up and close up, risking turning away a customer. Especially if it is a franchise of a corporate establishment, and the turned-away customer complains to corporate about being denied service or treated indifferently because he/she decided to come in at the last minute to order.
Posted by Anonymous on 2011-02-13:
Personally, I wouldn't go to any FF place 5 minutes before closing because the food I will be served will probably not be fresh.
Posted by ontario_girl on 2011-02-13:
Huge pet peeve of mine: customers showing up moments before closing, knowing full well that it's closing time.
Posted by Venice09 on 2011-02-13:
As a customer, I try never to go to a store ten to fifteen minutes before closing, but sometimes it happens. I don't do it on purpose, it just works out that way. With a little common sense and courtesy, it's not a big deal. It's only a problem when the employees and customers both have an attitude and butt heads. If I'm told the store is closing, I just leave. But if they are willing to help me, I am very appreciative and make it quick.
Posted by danny54 on 2011-02-13:
I worked restaurant for many years. Naturally people, including me, want to go home on time. However, it's the customers who make sure I keep getting a paycheck. Sure, it can be a pain, but it happens.

The one thing that was stressed to me as an employee that I passed on to my crew when I was a manager is that the last customer of the day deserves service and food that is just as high a quality as the first customer of the day.
Posted by Ytropious on 2011-02-13:
Thing is, Quiznos franchise owners are treated the worst by their parent company. They can barely keep their stores running usually and there is little profit margin. She probably had to call the owner because he demands them be out on time because he can't afford to keep them there later. It happens. I would never go to a place 5 minutes before closing but that's just me, I work in retail and I know how it is. 15 minutes to close is as close as I get.
Posted by Anonymous on 2011-02-13:
blackm8tal is spot-on in their assessment of the situation. In addition, the obvious solution for anyone wanting to order "in", you can just say that the lobby closed 30-minutes earlier, and that if you still want to order, it will have to be "to go".
Posted by madconsumer on 2011-02-13:
lots of business lock the door at closing time, regardless if anyone is inside still.
Posted by Venice09 on 2011-02-13:
Danny, that is my belief, too. I know it's not a popular opinion, and that there will always be customers who take advantage, but hours can't be set in stone. Everyone has things about their job that they don't like, and not being able to leave on time is one of them.
Posted by ontario_girl on 2011-02-13:
The question is, where does one draw the line? When I worked at the video store, I had to turn people away some nights because they just kept coming. If I didn't turn people away, I would have never gotten to close, period.

Coupon "misspelled"
Posted by JamesT on 10/29/2010
ORLANDO, FLORIDA -- On Monday, October 25th 2010, at approximately 7:00 P.M. I had gone to Best Buy in the same shopping complex (Waterford Lakes), that this Quiznos was located. I realized that I had a coupon for Quiznos that I had personally cut from a coupon book for shops in Waterford Lakes. This specific coupon stated the following "Free Sub with the Purchase of Sub or Drink". Please note that this specific coupon stated "Sub OR Drink". I could have used coupons from several shops in Waterford Lakes including Subway, but chose Quiznos because of this coupon. Please understand that I am a full-time college student and I have a small budget, which forces me to be a very frugal spender.

I walked into the store and the gentleman behind the counter was very friendly. I showed the employee my coupon and he said there were no problems and it is accepted. I excitedly ordered two large subs because I was going to eat one of the subs and give the free sub to my girlfriend.

After the subs had been made, the only other employee present at the time who seemed to be the supervisor was going to ring me up. I presented the coupon and he stated that the coupon was a "misprint" and actually meant "Free sub with purchase of sub AND drink". I told him that I specifically came to Quiznos just because of the coupon and he rudely told me to give him a break, and that I am already receiving a great deal and I should just pay the extra $1.89 for a drink. I reminded him that I was a college student on a low budget, and he went on to tell me that I was crazy to think that a purchase of a drink would get me a free sub. I was going to walk out of the store because of his rude service but my friend who had come with me persuaded me to forget about it, my friend however did not realize that I was arguing about the specific wording of the coupon, and told me later that he would have backed my position had he known what I was arguing about.

In conclusion, I am very disappointed with the service I received, and being forced to pay for a drink because of a misprinted coupon. The employee who rang me up was very rude and forced me to pay for a drink that a coupon said I did not have to. Although I can handle paying extra for a drink, I did not want a drink and the sole reason I came to Quiznos to spend my money was to use the coupon. I do not plan to purchase food at Quiznos again and I just want the company to know of my rude service and being forced to pay for an item I did not want. From my understanding of customer service, and in this case it is truly applicable that the customer is always right.

It is a disappointment that the coupon was missprinted. They should put up a sign in the store noting the missprint coupon. Either that or accept the coupon as is.
Posted by Anonymous on 2010-10-29:
The tricky part of this situation is the fact that food chains, grocery stores, retailers, etc...all have the right to refuse or accept coupons as they deem necessary. That is the right of each individual franchise as well.

My sister who was a full-time college student, single parent of two children, was also very frugal. And she would be the first to agree that eating out, even at that price is MUCH more expensive than shopping at the local supermarket yourself. So, perhaps you aren't quite as strapped as you'd like to think you are, if you can afford to eat out.

The coupon sounded too good to be true, to me.
Posted by MDSasquatch on 2010-10-29:
Something similar happened to me at a place called The Green Turtle. I had a "$5 off an entire meal" coupon and there were three of us eating. After we ordered, the waitress told us that we got a free appetizer because we had ordered two burgers. When the check arrived our coupon was denied because we already received a "bonus". For us, this was an easy fix, we subtracted $5 from the tip and replaced it with the coupon.

Like you, I have not gone back and don't intend to. A coupon is supposed to drum up business, not create disgruntled customers.

Sasquatch...Absolutely loved your solution!
Posted by getoverit on 2010-10-29:
I would say that the Quizno's guy was right and you should give him a break except that you specifically asked in advance whether the coupon would be accepted.

It seems a little surprising that they didn't know there were misprinted coupons in play. That being the case, he should just eat the cost of the drink (which is nowhere near $1.89) and make sure they tell future customers up front that the coupon is a misprint.

He needed to give you a break.
Posted by Anonymous on 2010-10-29:
Quiznos is overrated and overpriced as it is, and they can't even accept their own coupons. Lame. Just as lame and annoying as their stupid commercials. Needless to say, I avoid that chain as much as I can.

Posted by Anonymous on 2010-10-29:
Sasquatch, I'm curious, why stiff the waitress over the restaurant's policy/position? At the beginning of your meal, did she know you had a coupon you were planning to use?
Posted by Anonymous on 2010-10-29:
MRM and getoverit nailed this one. If this was the first they knew of a miss-print, they should have honored it for you since they had previously told you the coupon was good and then posted a sign. Simple solution and a happy customer that likely would have written a compliment.

It isn't anyone's business here how strapped you are either, I think it's great that a college aged person comes across as being as responsible as you are with their finances. Great review, thanks for posting it.

I didn't stiff the waitress, I gave her a coupon that had a value of $5. She knew I had the coupon before I ordered, but waited until the check arrived before she told us it would not be accepted. I rewarded her appropriately

Sasquatch, I say bravo to you! I've had plenty of servers tell me particular coupons weren't good on particular days or for particular meals at the *start* of my meals (when I showed it). To wait until the end and "surprise" me is a bad form.

I always present coupons at a restaurant before ordering to be sure there is no problem when the check arrives.

Just Cause> If it's none of our business to know of her financial situaiton, then why does she go out of her way to remind us of it on two different occasions?

Many coupons state that they need to be presented at time of service ( which would be when the order is being placed) to avoid such situations.

Bud, the OP mentioned it twice because he is a college student on a budget..he was emphasizing his point that he is watching his pennies and being frugal..which is relevant to his post.

Accusing the OP of not being as strapped as he claims to be by comparing him to your sister...a single parent of 2 children, was what I don't think is anyone's business.

Normally, people watching their pennies don't eat out. That was my point. Forgive the error of tossing in my sister to bolster that train of thought, even though I felt it relevant in substantiating my line of reasoning.

Hey, people on a budget deserve to go out just like anyone else. If a company is offering coupons to customers, then they need to do their part and accept them. Theyre certainly not making their business look good by getting customers in their store and then telling them the coupon is no good or changing up the offer on them. If anything, they are making it WORSE for them. See, Im stubborn. If the owner would have told me to give him a break, I would have told him "fine Ill give you a break" and walked out. not only did he waste 2 perfectly good sandwiches, but he lost the sale completely.

Prince> I never stated that people on budgets didn't DESERVE to go out. I just said that they genereally don't. We all deserve to live a little high on the hog once in a while. As for the rest of the comment...I seriously doubt the "owner" would have been serving you. Although, in theory, the employees should be a direct reflection of ownership, we all know that isn't always the case. They could care less if you leave the store or not. In the eyes of the teenager making the sandwhiches (sorry for the stereotype), they see it as one less customer they have to serve. Easier on them. Sad, but fairly true.

Misprints happen, but I wonder how long this misprint has been known about. There should have been a sign if you ask me, but I wouldn't have gotten mad at him. I'm in college and poor too OP but I don't use it as an excuse to get free stuff. I suggest you read up on how terrible Quiznos treats its franchisees. Most Quiznos don't even want to accept coupons because they LOSE money on them. All the Quiznos around me have closed because they just can't afford to stay open with Quiznos' terrible franchisee agreements. I won't explain it all here but I suggest you look into it. ALL of you, then maybe your opinions on Quiznos would change.

ript, the OP did show the employee the coupon and was told it would be accepted. Had I been the OP I would have walked out. The manager would have had 2 sandwiches he could not sell at that point.

yoke, my comment was a reflection of MD's comment of his experience. I agree with you, I probably would have walked out also.

Had it been practical I would have found another identical coupon, bought a drink, and then demanded a free sub and see what they said then. :)
