$4.72 at Subway Sun, 01/8/12 2:06 PM (permalink)
I had to to test-drive my truck after working on it so I headed into town and stopped at Subway to grab a sandwich (I was not at all dressed to go sit down somewhere), where I paid the $5.28 total with a $10 bill.
 
My change was a pair of $2 bills, a half-dollar, 2 dimes, and 2 pennies.  At first the combination struck me as kind of odd but after some thought it makes sense, especially if a lot of customers pay with $10s and $20s.  $2s take up half the space of $1s in the cash drawer and the customer's wallet, and a single 50-cent piece is easier to work with than a pair of quarters.  I've gotten $2s from this particular Subway in the past, too.
 
Has anyone else ever gotten an uncommon change combination from a Subway, or even another restaurant for that matter?  I wonder if this was a decision made by the local franchise or if it's encouraged by headquarters.
 
I ate the sandwich while watching Lidia Bastianich make a muffuletta on TV so that made it seem a bit tastier.

    There is a adult dancing place about 20 minutes north of me that gives two dollar bills as change when you pay the cover charge, I have heard that is what they do

        Brad, I gave this a quick read while on the road and thought you got a deal on a sandwich
         
        If you were in the Euro Zone you would have received two of these....

            I haven't even seen a two dollar bill in at least ten years. Our large Native American annual festival, Indian Summer, http://www.indiansummer.org/ used to give out Sacagawea coins as change unless you specified dollar bills but stopped that a few years back.
            Oh, and thank you mods, that was my intent.
