While you probably remember Teacher Appreciation Day as that time when your mom would send you to school with a cheesy mug or Starbucks gift card for your favorite teacher, the day and the larger Teacher Appreciation Week is one of the few occasions when educators get the respect and recognition they deserve. A big part of that is a school busload of deals at restaurants and stores, but it looks like Chipotle is celebrating teachers a bit early this year with a free burrito promotion.
Here's the deal:
If you're a teacher, faculty, or some other type of school staff member and can prove it with a school ID, Chipotle will give you a free burrito, burrito bowl, salad, or order of tacos, but only when you buy another menu item, according to the company's website. Although Teacher Appreciation Day falls on May 9 this year, the buy-one-get-one promotion is good today, may 2 from 3pm to close at Chipotle locations nationwide (excluding online orders) with a limit of one freebie per eligible educator. Depending on how hungry you are, you can probably knock out both a late lunch and dinner with the deal, if you time it out right.
