My bolding in your text above. I'm assuming that the flights were AA and not US flights as on US flights the sandwiches are charged for EXP and only the snacks are free. I was surprised last week on my LAX-IAD flight on US when I was told that I'd be charged for the sandwich but would get a small discount as an EXP and only the snack items were free. I did verify this on the EXP benefits where any item on AA flights are free but only snacks are free on US flights.
