If you hate forking over those extra couple bucks for Chipotle’s guacamole, you’re not alone. Though it’s brutal on your wallet, that creamy addition seems to always be worth it when stuffed inside that massive burrito.
On Tuesday, July 31, Chipotle’s blessing its customers with a free side of their prized guacamole, for National Guacamole Day.
All you have to do is order an entree online or through their app and you’ll qualify for the freebie.
It’s 2018, online ordering seems reasonable by now, right?
You can’t be too upset that you still have to purchase an entree, either. I mean, you need something to put the guac on, right?
This seems like an easy and effective way for Chipotle to get people to download their app. Such a strategy had been used recently by McDonald’s, giving customers free fries every week for a year, plus a sweet $1 burger deal, all for downloading their app.
Chipotle is deploying the same type of app strategy: all you have to do is set up an account, pick an entree, select guacamole or both chips and guac as an add-on, then checkout using the coupon code AVOCADO. You can only use the code once, so unless some glitch occurs, you won’t be able to walk out of Chipotle with an overabundance of guac.
Probably the nicest part of the deal is that you likely won’t have to wait in a crazy line since you’re ordering ahead through the app. Just pray that 100 other people don’t order at the same time as you, and you should be good to go.
