** Please note, there are a small percentage of "plastic-less" card accounts for American Express - Corporate and Purchasing Card accounts. If you have one of these accounts with no AMEX card, please enter 5555 as your card security code.

The USPS and Canadian Post do not offer tracking options. We cannot be responsible for Gift Cards lost in the mail.
Once your Subway® eGift Card is sent, you will receive an email advising you of that fact. You will also receive a separate email advising you when the Gift Card has been viewed.

Physical Subway® Gift Cards may be shipped to valid street addresses within the United States, United States Territories or Military Bases for orders placed in the USA cart. Gift Cards may be shipped to valid street addresses within Canada for orders placed in the Canada cart. For your protection, we do not ship to Post Office Boxes.
Subway® eGift Cards may be sent to any valid email address.
- What exactly does the recipient receive when I send a Subway® Gift Card?
When you order a physical Subway® Gift Card, the recipient will receive an envelope via the delivery method you selected during the purchase, which will include a carrier with your personalized method and the Gift Card. If you select to send email notification to the recipient, they will get advanced notice of the gift.
When you order a Subway® eGift Card, the recipient will receive an email advising that you have sent an eGift Card. The email will include a link which allows the recipient to view the eGift Card and activate it for use.
