Millennials should be on high alert. Wednesday, July 31, is National Avocado Day. You can guess what that means. There's going to be a deluge of poorly thought-out, repetitive jokes about avocados and your financial well-being. Expect many variations on jokes about why you can't buy a house, you know, because of avocado. Though, anyone making jokes about your avocado toast habit will probably skip mentioning your crippling student loan debt.
Absolutely no one will genuinely enjoy those jokes, but absolutely everyone can enjoy an avocado-themed promotion from the burrito-slingers Chipotle. The fast-casual Mexican restaurant is offering free guacamole on any entrée purchased through Chipotle's app or on Chipotle.com. (You can't get the freebie through any third-party delivery service.) In this way, Chipotle honors the brave green fruits of National Avocado Day.
Maybe the promotion will briefly sate rival fast-casual Mexican eatery Qdoba, which launched a Change.org petition this week to get restaurants to stop charging extra for guac. The petition doesn't specifically name Chipotle as an offender, but it's pretty clear who they're trolling.
You can nab one free guac order per entrée purchased, and the usual $10 delivery minimum applies for delivery orders. The deal can't be combined with other discounts, but it can be redeemed with a Chipotle Rewards entrée. So, prepare to load up that burrito, burrito bowl, order of tacos, or salad with a generous serving of guacamole, which usually costs a fair amount extra but is always 100% worth it. You can tuck the savings into the change jar that doubles as a savings account because you eat too many avocados or whatever.
