Chipotle Is Giving Away Free Chips and Guac — But You've Got to Earn It

It involves an online game called Guac Hunter

Chipotle knows free guac is the way to our hearts. According to Fast Casual, Chipotle is partnering up with Avocados from Mexico to launch an online game called Guac Hunter. In the photo hunt-style game, players must spot the differences between two similar photos within the given time frame. The prize for doing well? An offer for a free order of chips and guac at any Chipotle in the U.S. or Canada sent to your mobile device.

This is certainly good news for guac lovers who normally cough up the extra two bucks to add it to their order — those who haven't been put off by Chipotle's recent food safety debacle, at least. The announcement of free guac should come as no surprise to customers who have been following the Chipotle saga: After an E. coli outbreak that rocked the company last year and resulted in drastic losses for the first quarter of 2016, Chipotle continues on its road to recovery with a five-step plan and loads of free food.

A recent offer for free burritos got a whopping 5.3 million responses, with about 14,000 coupon requests coming in every minute. Last week, the company sent out millions of free entree coupons with plans to mail out millions more in the coming months — although they may change to buy-one-get-one deals by summer. While some question if Chipotle will be able to win customers back, a little free guac action certainly can't hurt. However, because all good things must come to an end, the game is only available from March 21 through March 31 — or while supplies last, which, judging by that free burrito offer, might not be very long.
