For better or worse, rich people love to put their name on things. But they're all just playing catch-up. In their hearts they know that their college quad, reading room, failed casino, or line of frozen steaks can't possible compete with what John Montagu has already done. 

Montagu was the 4th Earl of Sandwich. The legend goes that the sandwich was invented by something for him because of his gambling problem. But the truth is that you basically can't do better than naming the retire category of sandwich after yourself. Keep your slanted hot plates, Montagu basically can't be topped. Then it gets even better because we have to honor the sandwich at times. Like right now. August is National Sandwich Month and while you don't need any excuse to remember that sandwiches are great, you're getting one anyhow with deals all over the country on, gasp, sandwiches. 

You're going to find deals from X, Y, and Z, some of which are celebrating the month, others are just offering deals on sandwiches because it's a month and they sell sandwiches. So, in honor of this great month and our collective love of sandwiches, here are the best sandwich deals you'll find in August.
