Teachers may have to pay for their own health care and school supplies, but at least they can get a Chipotle burrito for free—at least for a day.
In honor of Teacher Appreciation Day—which this year falls on Tuesday, May 8, 2018—Chipotle is giving teachers a buy one, get one free deal for burritos, bowls, salads or tacos. Faculty or staff must show up to a participating Chipotle location with a valid school ID—from a “preschool, elementary school, middle school, high school, community college, or university,”—or a home-school ID card to get the deal, which is effectively a 50% off sale.
Chipotle’s Teacher Appreciation Day deal runs from 3 p.m. until store closing and is limited to in-store orders only.
Chipotle offers other “buy one get one free” deals throughout the year—both for holidays like Halloween and Veterans Day, and to honor unofficial “holidays” like Hockey Weekend Across America and back-to-school season. Although the company’s reputation took a hit after an E. coli outbreak in 2015, Chipotle still nabbed a place in Money’s recent ranking of all the best fast casual restaurants in the U.S.
