Join Chipotle’s Rewards program and they may give you money

Chipotle is giving away $250,000 on Venmo

It’s here, finally! Chipotle’s rewards program is launching. But that’s not all. If you don’t already order Chipotle a little too often, they’re sweetening the deal by giving away $250,000. That’s right. They want to send you money to buy Chipotle. We know, that sounds crazy. But it’s true! On Tuesday, the restaurant chain announced that every day for four days, (or until Friday, March 15 at 11:59pm (Pacific Time)) the first 25,000 people who sign up for the rewards program with their Venmo accounts could win between $1 and $500 directly deposited into their Venmo account. To sign up and hopefully win some $$$$, click here. You will need to enter the phone number associated with your Venmo account. And according to the rules, you can only enter once a day.

Chipotle’s Rewards program is a new initiative to reward loyal customers. Download the Chipotle app or go through the Chipotle website to sign up. For every dollar you spend, you will receive 10 points. Alcohol, gift cards, taxes, fees and tips will not count. Once you hit 1250 points, you’ll earn a free entrée. Earning extra points when they present special days and trying new menu items. As a bonus for all who sign up, each Chipotle Rewards member will receive a free chips and guacamole after their first purchase as a member of $5 or more and you will receive a special gift on your birthday.
