Chipotle is joining the monkey pile of gratitude for teachers. Teacher Appreciation Week runs May 6-10 and Teacher Appreciation Day, for everyone who can't spend a whole week being thankful, lands on Tuesday, May 7.
To show its gratitude to all the people who help shape our formative years, Chipotle is serving up a buy-one-get-one-free (BOGO) deal on burritos, burrito bowls, salads, and taco orders for teachers on May 7. Every Chipotle in the United States will be participating in the free food celebration from 3pm (local time) until close, so it'll have to be a late lunch or dinner. Or maybe a nice after school snack.
To get the offer, you need to present a valid ID proving you're an educator. However, the chain's definition of an educator is quite broad, so lots of people can join the burrito party. It's valid for "educators and staff at all levels, including pre-school, elementary, middle and high school, university, and homeschooling parents," according to Chipotle. If you work at a school, you should be good to go, though you do have to order at a restaurant. The offer isn't valid for online, mobile, or catering orders. Oh, and you can't combine the deal with any other discounts, but it does count towards your Chipotle Rewards membership. All said, it should be as easy as buying your go-to burrito and getting another one for free.
