Chipotle to give away $100K in burritos, $100K in Bitcoin

NEWPORT BEACH — Chipotle Mexican Grill is offering customers an unusual promotion for National Burrito Day on April 1 — an it’s not an April Fools’ Day joke. The fast-food chain will give away $100,000 worth of burritos and $100,000 in Bitcoin.

“National Burrito Day is a huge moment for Chipotle as our fans traditionally flock to our restaurants and digital platforms to order their favorites,” said Chris Brandt, chief marketing officer for the Newport Beach-based chain. “We’re always looking for unique ways to enhance the celebration, and this year, we’re giving fans the opportunity to acquire two highly valuable assets: burritos or Bitcoin.”

The promotion comes in the form of a digital game in which players are encouraged to carry out a mock “chiptocurrency” rescue mission and crack the code on a digital wallet. The company describes the game as “a playful ode” to Chipotle founder and CEO Stefan Thomas’ experience losing the login to his hard drive that stored $387 million in Bitcoin.

Each player will have 10 tries to guess a valid six-digit code for a chance to win a free burrito or up to $25,000 in Bitcoin. If players are unsuccessful, they may be surprised with a special offer from Chipotle. Overall, 10,000 fans will win one free burrito, 50 fans will win $500 in Bitcoin, and three lucky fans will win $25,000 in Bitcoin.

The contest goes live at 9 a.m. and ends at 6 p.m. April 1.
