Holy guacamole! National Avocado Day 2018 was held on Tuesday, July 31, Chipotle celebrated by giving customers free guacamole with orders placed online or via the Chipotle app. And Chipotle just announced that it is extending its free guacamole deal for another day: That’s right, you can get free guac at Chipotle all day on Wednesday, August 1.

As any Chipotle customer knows and probably heard many times before, “guac is extra” under normal circumstances at the burrito chain: The famous phrase is even on T-shirts.

Now there’s an exception and guacamole is free at Chipotle with qualifying orders, in honor of National Avocado Day 2018. Why is it celebrated on July 31? The calendar is now riddled with made-up food holidays, and at some point someone decreed that July 31 would henceforth forever be known as National Avocado Day.

To qualify for Chipotle’s National Avocado Day 2018 deal, you must log in or create an account at the Chipotle app or at chipotle.com. Then, place an order with any entrée — burrito, bowl, salad, and such — and add guacamole as an add-on, side, or separate order of guac and chips.

On Tuesday, Chipotle customers were also asked to enter the promotional coupon code AVOCADO to get free guacamole. The deal was so popular that Chipotle’s website and app both crashed for a while yesterday.

To get free guacamole at Chipotle on Wednesday, August 1, simply order an entrée and add guacamole to the order. There is no need to add any promo code to get your free guac. “The discount will be automatically applied at checkout,” Chipotle says.

Guacamole fans, take note that there is one other National Avocado Day deal that we know of out there on Tuesday. The Freebirds World Burrito restaurant chain, which has 73 locations around the U.S., also has a great free guacamole deal: Customers get a free side of guacamole with the purchase of any Monster-sized or larger burrito.

The National Avocado Day free guacamole deal at Freebirds is available on Tuesday, July 31, for all customers. There is no promotional code required when you order, and you can get the deal in-person or online.
