Chipotle Promises Free Burritos for NBA Finals
Tomorrow night the 2019 NBA Finals will kick off in Toronto and, if it goes well, we all walk away champions. Technically either the Raptors or the Golden State Warriors will be this year's NBA champion, but if an announcer says the word "free" during the official coverage of the men's professional basketball championship series - the Tex-Mex eatery will tweet out a code good for a free burrito at one of their nationwide participating locations.
According to Business Insider, Chipotle is prepared to dish out $1 million worth of free burritos for this publicity stunt. The company will "Freet" the free burrito code out when phrases like "Free Throw" or "Free Agent" are uttered by announcers, and they calculate that they will hand out roughly 500 free burritos during the first half of each game. The burrito barons are also offering free delivery on orders of $10 or more from May 30 until June 9th.
Not be be outdone, Taco Bell has also squared up for their free throw as well. The late night taco specialists are bringing back their famous "Steal A Game, Steal A Taco" promotion that will award a free taco to everyone if a team on the road "steals" a game from the home team. If that happens, make a run for the border on June 18th for your free Doritos Locos Tacos.
