Claim: The Subway chain of sandwich shops is offering free gift cards to those who participate in a market research program.
Example:[Collected via e-mail, June 2010 ]
There is a link going around facebook today, where you can get a free subway gift card by liking and sharing a certain link for an unnamed 3rd party research firm.
Origins: From the folks who brought you the phony Facebook sites advertising free Olive Garden gift cards comes this latest offering, a site (subwaysfootlongdeal.com) touting free gift cards for the Subway chain of sandwich shops to everyone who participates in a "market research" program:
Like the earlier Olive Garden pranks, this purported Subway offer is nothing more than a web-based version of a long-running Internet e-mailhoax.
In early July 2010, the subwaysfootlongdeal.com domain began redirecting visitors to starbuckspromotion.com, a similar site offering yet another phony "free gift card" promotion with the Starbucks coffee chain as its target.
