You Can Get a Free Meal at Qdoba Just for Kissing Someone

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.
