Bread is an essential for most families and can be found in almost every kitchen.  With all the toast, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and grilled cheese that kids and adults love, that bread in your pantry seems to just disappear. You may be buying multiple loaves a week. Sometimes you can even find coupons to bring the price of all these loaves down, but can you get it for just 50 cents?  At Jimmy John’s you can!

Jimmy John’s uses fresh bread every day.  So, instead of throwing out all of their leftovers from the day before, they make it available to the public. I am not talking a small loaf of bread; I am talking about loaves they cut in half to make two sandwiches.

How It Works

The earlier in the day you visit Jimmy John’s, the better.  You can purchase as many day old loaves of bread as you want for 50 cents each! The amount of bread they have varies day to day depending on the leftovers from the day before. Simply contact your closest Jimmy John’s to get this delicious bread on a budget!

What To Do With It

Now, what do you do with all of these huge loaves of bread? Here’s how I put my bread to work:

  • French toast or French toast bake
  • Sandwiches
  • Biscuits and gravy
  • Garlic Bread
  • Freeze what you won't use right away.

This deal with Jimmy John's is almost too good to be true!  It’s a great deal for any budget. In order to find a store near you just visit
