Sometimes, scoring free food at restaurant chains involves lining up and having to present some sort of coupon at the register. But on one particularly romantic day next month, fast-casual "Mexican eats" chain Qdoba will give you a free meal -- just for kissing someone when you order. And, uh, hopefully it's someone you know.
Here's the deal: On February 14th, aka Valentine's Day, participating Qdoba restaurants will serve you one free entree with the purchase of an entree, if you "share a kiss" with someone when you go up to pay. As the company explains in a press release, you don't need a coupon, and you don't need to kiss someone there with you to receive the extra meal. "Kiss a picture of your favorite celebrity crush, your significant other, or even kiss yourself -- all counts," according to Qdoba. In other words, you'll be smooching a free burrito in no time.
Unlike previous years with the cheeky buy-one-get-one deal, Qdoba is also offering the chance to win up to $500, or Qdoba gift cards, if you submit a kissing selfie (taken in the restaurant or not) via Instagram or Twitter from February 10th-15th, using the hashtag #QdobaForAKissSweeps. We're more into the whole free food aspect of this, but we wouldn't mind a kiss, too.
