Free Food

Of course, there are some rules on how to get your hands on the free Mexican snacks. The first rule is that you need to watch the NBA finals to listen for the game’s announcer to say the word “FREE.” 

Every time an announcer says the word “free,” for example “free throw,” Chipotle will tweet out a unique text code. After seeing the special tweet, you text the code to 888222 for your chance to win. The brand will give away up to 500 free entrees during the first half and up to 1000 during the second half of each game.

Chipotle is calling it “freeting.”

Obviously, following the restaurant’s Twitter account is the key to winning your free tacos or burritos. Also, be sure to watch the games so you know exactly when to text the tweeted code. Listen closely because the promotion will be limited to the first 20 on-air mentions of the word “free” during each of the final games.

Be sure to brush up on the official rules, so you don’t miss your chance at a free taco! However, that’s not the only free treat Chipotle is throwing at you.

Free Delivery

To celebrate their new delivery service, the chain restaurant is also offering free delivery for orders of $10 or more. Chipotle will deliver to your door for free from May 29 through June 9 only.

Like I said, free throws for free food and free delivery. So. Much. Free.
