As a poor college student that McDonald’s gift card would be AMAZING.
Subway!!! Crossing fingers for the win 🙂
I love them both! Hmmmmm I guess I would pick McDonalds and spend all $25 on ice cream cones.
Gunning for that Subway Card. Big Subs No Whammie.
McDonalds all the way. Subway’s chicken is remarkably more processed than McDonalds’.
Tough choice, but Subway please!
Thanks for an entertaining blog! I’m hoping to win the Subway gift card.
I would like the McDonald’s!
Subway for sure!
Love then both but in the fast food world, McDonalds
is the French fry king! So McDonalds for me.
Many thanks for the contest–and season’s wishes to y’all!
Think I’ll go for the Subways card–been awhile!
Just to keep up the grand tradition of alternating entries: McDonald’s (plus I find the other lacking)
subway is where it’s at
As a major FAN of subway, I would definitely get use of that being a poor college student 🙂
I sure love me some hash browns. YUMMY IN MY TUMMY!!!
McDonald’s, please. Gimme back dat filet-o-fish. Give me dat fish.
Wanna try those siracha subways
Gotta go with McDonald’s, more meals out of that $25! Thanks!
College student with a Subway located on campus. That gift card would be much appreciated so I am no longer stuck eating crappy dining food. You feel me?
I want a McDonalds gift card because I need to try a Holiday Pie. And another McRib…
I would like the Subway gift card!
I needs a McDonalds gift card so I can get McRibs for my homeslices.
That McDonald’s gift card would be great!
Tough choice, but I’m going to have to go with Subway 🙂
McDonalds gift cards are my spirit animal.
I would like the Subway gift card.
Mitch Hedberg: “I went to a Subway sandwich shop, and I said, ‘Let me have a bun,’ but she wouldn’t sell me just a bun. She said it had to have something on it. She told me it’s against regulations for Subway to sell just a bun; I guess the two halves ain’t supposed to touch. So, I said, ‘Alright, put some lettuce on it,’ which they did. They said, ‘That’ll be $1.75.’ I said, ‘It’s for a duck.’ They said, ‘Alright, well then it’s free.’ See, I did not know that — ducks eat for free at Subway. Had I known that, I would’ve ordered a much larger sandwich. ‘Lemme have the steak fajita sandwich, but don’t bother ringing it up, it’s for a duck! There are six ducks out there, and they all want SunChips!'”
Does’nt someone make a McSub somewhere?
McDonald’s is my choice!
Hmmm, tough choice. I’m going to go with Subway… Because the new year is less than a month away, and I’m sure I’ll attempt a New Year’s resolution of attempting to eat somewhat healthier. And I’m sure that resolution will last no longer than 2 weeks.
McDonalds all the way!!!
Ooh, I’d love to get a Subway gift card. I know a lot of people I could give it to who would enjoy it!
McDonalds rocks the house!

Yo, Marvo. I love me some Subway! 🙂
Whoop! I’d love the McD’s!
I feel like I’m in the minority, but I’ll go with Subway

Subway Please I wouldn’t mind winning.Great Contest.
Subway, yo. Eat fresh.
McDonalds please! Nice cheap food for the family!
I like ’em both for different reasons, but if I had to pick one to win I’d rather have McDonald’s. I love your blog and your podcasts!!! Happy Holidays!
$5 Chipotle Chicken & Cheese, and $4 Meatball Marinara footlons sounds so good right now! Put me in for Subway!
Love The Impulsive Buy …. would love to win a gift card. Either one of the two would be wonderful!

I’m such a Subway girl!
Love The Impulsive Buy and I would like the Subway card.
Would love a Subway card!
Subway all the way!
Thanks for the time and dedication you put into making this blog a fun and educational resource. Your blog is a daily source of interesting and comical food updates. I would very much appreciate winning the Subway card, given that I’m a poor college student with an appetite. Thanks again!
I’d take either … Subway and McDonald’s each have their place and their taste 🙂
I would gladly take the Subway gift card off of your hands!
McDonald’s, cause then my kids my kids will stop whining a outgoings there!
mcdonalds. Love this site, your reviews are the best.
Subway, but either would be awesome!
Mcdonalds!!! Now I’m craving it, damn you!
subway would be awesome
Could definitely use the Subway coupon- we go all the time!
Subway! I dunno how I would even spend $25 at McDonald’s.
McDonalds. I need more Holiday Pies
Hey, The Impulsive Buy is awesome and a gift card for McDonald’s would be too!
The McDonald’s gift card will be a good gift for our annual white elephant party.
Subway would be a great gift card to receive!
Love that moment when you open the door to Subway and are enveloped by the smell of baked bread.
And fresh cookies. Heaven forbid I forget the cookies.
Would loooooove to win the Subway gift card! I love their sandwiches. And the COOKIES! If I win, I am taking my twin sister out for an awesome lunch. We love the chocolate chip cookies! Thank you for offering up a giveaway so close to the holidays. Woohoo!
The Subway gift card would be absolutely great!
McDonalds has some pretty awesome hot cookies too, I would get $25 worth of hot cookies to ring in the New Year
Would prefer the McDonald’s card. Because shamrock shakes. (Or holiday pies, if I don’t want to wait that long.)
I would love to win the Subway gift card please!
Since Mac-Donald’s specializes in crap food, I’d have to go with Subway. nWo 4 Life!
I love this site. Happy Holidays!
McDonalds gift care pleeeeeeeeeeeeeze so I can try for free the burgers you have been reviewing. Thanks!
Mcdonalds sounds good:-)
McDonalds would be amazing, chicken everything!
SUBWAY! Hate their low quality bread but you get what you get
Since I loved McDonald’s commercials when I was a kid, “It’s a good time for the great taste…of McDonald’s”, I would love a McDonald’s gift card.
even though i do like subway, i’d have to chose the mcdonald’s gift card!
I like free stuff 😀
Definitely McDonald’s. I can stretch it on in the dollar menu for a while.
I would love to win the McDonalds gift card, to take my family out for a fun meal as a gift to them for all they do for me.
McDonalds all the way!
I’ll go with McDonald’s, please.
It is the season of giving. I’d love to be given a free McD’s gift card and if they produce any sort of interesting new menu item, I promise to GIVE you a full ” Spotted on Shelf” update. Thank you for giving us a chance!
I like Subway and McDonalds. Double my chances, double my chins
I’d love the Subway one. 🙂
Subway, please, just ’cause it’s healthier. I’ll miss the fries. I wish they offered a spinach and artichoke or roasted veggie sandwich…
Meow, subway, please.
Subway!! Trying to be somewhat healthy
If I had to choose, I’d say I want the Mcdonalds gift card. I’d spend it on the Mccafe items.
I would love that Subway gift card! I have been wanting to try the new Siracha melts! 🙂
I would love the subway card!
I’d like to say I want Subway because it’d be healthier…but let’s be real, you can make the most deliciously unhealthy sandwiches there if you try hard enough. Mmmm Subway…
McDonalds.. I haven’t had it in 10 years.. or more.
Always McDonalds! MCD > Subway
i love subway!
Just because you made that jalapeno burger sound SO dang tasty, I’d go with McDonald’s please! 😀
I get oh so hungry for Subway!
Mcdonalds all the way!!!
Just tried Subway’s new creamy sriracha sauce on my turkey sandwich today and I could definitely go for more with a free gift card 😀 SUBWAY FTW!
I’ve been meaning to go to Subway more, so a $25 gift card would be a good reason for me to start going there again.
McDonald’s is much closer to me then subway.!!
Subway whoopity whoop whoop!
As much as I love the McRib, I doubt I could spend $25 at McDonald’s…so Subway for me, please! Thank you for this giveaway!
That’s a lot of grilled onion cheddar burgers! McD’s, please!
All in for that Subway GC! Woooo!
I’m a broke college student so Mcdonalds if definitely the way to go 🙂
I would probably prefer to win Subway over McDonald’s, though it’s a toss up! I’d take either one 🙂
Crossing my fingers to win that McDonalds card!!!
Subway! I never get to have it because I always opt for whats cheapest LOL
So I generally try not to eat at McD’s because there are usually healthier alternatives, but if you, Marvo, are treating me, then I’m all in! Hook me up with McDonalds, Marvo!.
McDonald’s! Rock & Roll McDonald’s is a few blocks away from where I work. Of course, so is Subway, but I get to see this particular restaurant location that Wesley Willis immortalized in song!
I would have to choose Subway, I did have a decent sandwich there this summer.
Sometimes you get on the subway, and there’s a person eating a sub, and you’re like CRAP I need to go to Subway. And then you wished you had a Subway gift card, because then you could get one of those three-foot subs, and eat it all by yourself.
Yeah, totally the Subway card.
I choose McDonalds, the lesser of two evils (in terms of food quality).
Love the website visit it everyday and either one on the cards
Actually, it is not terribly difficult to get melted snow on this rock in the middle of the Pacific.
I’d choose the McDonalds gift card; I don’t know that I actually prefer it over Subway, but since someone gave me a Subway gift card (that I have yet to use) for my birthday, a McDs card would balance me out.
Hey Marvo, I haven’t won a contest yet. Maybe this will be my first!! 🙂 McDonald’s, please! 🙂
I’ve been a good girl all year so I deserve some McDonald’s treats before the year is over!!
I would like McDonald’s because 1. They have delicious fries and Subway has no fries and 2. I could take my nephew to McDonald’s and make him think I’m cooler.
I need a break from McDonald’s. I’ve eaten there so many times compared to Subway. I think its time to finally switch it up. If I won the Subway gift card, I’d make it my duty to try as many new things as I could. That is my pledge as a foodie. XD
I eat subway almost everyday for lunch so mcdonalds card for me!!
McDonald’s for me. Their new dollar menu items are all pretty solid.
Nothing says “Happy Birthday” like a McDonald’s gift card. Now I can take all my friends out for some nuggets. My treat!
Subway. Once I get back to the US, I’d like me some Subway.
I despise Subway, so I would like to win the McDonald’s gift card.
Subway! Subway! Subway!
since subway is pretty much the only fast-food place i go to, i would love to win a gift card so i can spend less money there than usual! maybe save some and try another restaurant!
McDonald’s gift card please.
I would love to win a SUBWAY gift card so I can buy some Southwest Turkey Bacon sandwiches. 🙂
I’m Lovin It
I would like the subway one and then I would like you to dance for my amusement.
Because I can’t take a subway I will instead eat a Subway sandwich.
Subway would be awesome.
Would love to treat my mom to a tasty lunch from Subway!
I’m looking forward to the jalapeno popper items at McDonalds!
I’d love to win the McDonald’s card! It’d keep me in Filet-o-Fish sandwiches and fries for a while!
Because im in love with the new siracha sauce, i would love that subway gift card!
I would love it if Santa brought me a Subway gift card!
Subway is much much tastier than McDonald’s!
i’d love to win subways!
I’d take the McDonalds, can’t stand that Subway smell.
Probably McDonald’s- Subway is often “out” of something, bread, meat, cheese…
Subway! My daughter and I’s favorite dinner date!
Subway! It would make my year.
Subway! Sriracha meeeeee, son.
McDonald’s! More bang for your buck!
If I’m going to be wearing my fat pants this holiday season anyway, might as well go for some Big Macs. McDonald’s!
McDonald’s. Cause nothing says Christmas like Holiday Pie!!
Subway! I needs me a hot meatball sammich to make it through the holidays!
A couple of years ago my boyfriend asked where I wanted to go for dinner on Valentine’s Day and I told him that the only thing I was really craving was Subway. SUBWAY! I love how you can smell that delicious bread a block away.
P.S. My boyfriend did not agree to Subway on Valentine’s Day.
McDonald’s for sure. Even though there’s apparently no McRib period this year.
burr its cold…..a subway cheddar chipotle sub sounds gooooodddd!
I would love the McDonald’s gift card!!
I would love to win a Subway Gift Card, please!
The annual Chick-fil-A calendar is a great deal at Christmas. I got one last year for $5 and probably got over $25 worth of food (from a GOOD fast food place). And they are making strides in taking artificial everything out of their buns and soup. The calendar is now $6 but has some great free food if you take advantage of it every month. OK this has nothing to do with Mickey D’s or Subway. Hmmmm but if I won, I’d have to pick McDonald’s because I can do a lot with their dollar menu 🙂
Subway, ours has a yummy taco sub!
Subway, Sriracha Chicken!
McDonalds card please, their breakfast alone beats Subway by a mile!
Mcdonalds card please! Merry Christmas!
McDonalds please! Their dollar menu is pretty good.
Subway! Because the only thing better than “Eat Fresh!” is Eat Free!

I accept full responsibility for any coal received this year. Also, if I ended up getting picked for the McDonald’s gift card, I’d totally accept one of those too.
I would love a subway giftcard for the cure fact of never having to cook dinner again…uh..I mean..to give to someone else so they never have to cook again?

I would like to buy $35 worth of fries from Mcdonalds, pour them on the floor and roll around in them.
I worked at Subway in Kaneohe (Windward City Shopping Center) in 1990 before it was super popular and found in every town. My favorite back then was a turkey on wheat with everything. Twenty three years later I still order the same sandwich and I still love it just as much. I would love to win a Subway gift card!

Subway. “Because I like to pretend I’m healthy” hahaha

Subway FTW! I work at McDonald’s and would love a change in meals lol.

Let’s be honest, the McDonalds gift card would get used much faster for me. Justifying it to myself that it’s because I work late and they’re still open when I leave… eh whatever.

I come by your site everyday!!!
McDonalds giftcard would be nice. Merry Christmas!!!
I’d like the Subway card – because I don’t pretend to eat healthy, I DO eat healthy.
I actually had a fish sandwich from McDonald’s the other night (first time in about a year) and my mouth felt AWFUL after eating it – it had this strange, oily feel that I just HATED. Ugh. I think that it’ll be a long, long time (as in never) before I have another fish sandwich from McDonald’s.
A Mcdonalds gift card would be awesome!
Gift cards are awesome, subway gift cards are awesomer!

I heart their breakfast!
Subway is the WAY TO BE
Subway is the best!
Huh; I entered a Christmas blog contest that had Mountain Standard Time stipulations, and now a contest with Hawaii Standard Time rules. I feel like Marty McFly, bouncing between time zones! Or, at least, learning how to figure what the local time is in said zone.
And… McDonalds gift card please! Merry Kwa-New-Dr King-tines celebration!
