Yes, everyone’s favorite fast food joint (yes, it is after all fast food) is having another free deal for Valentine’s Day, just like they had last year. You know the drill, but in case you’re don’t, here’s the info:
– Buy a Chipotle gift card (min $5) between 1/31 & 2/11.
– Bring back receipt from gift card purchase between 2/12 & 2/14 and score a free burrito.
Not that complicated, right? But somehow whenever I explain it aloud to people, they always seem to get confused. I should just tell them to read my blog.
And in case you don’t believe me or are still confused, go here for the actual advertisement from Chipotle.
And for those of you whose Chipotle love cannot be quenched by merely buying burritos, you can now own a piece of Chipotle! Their stock went on sale on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) last week and has more than doubled already from it’s $22 opening price per share, to a close today at $44.80 a share (ticker symbol: CMG). I’m not usually one to give stock advice, but I’d stay away from this one for a few months and see where it settles out at. Usually the first few weeks after an Initial Public Offering (IPO) are pretty rocky. And yes, even though they are now a publicly traded company, McDonald’s is still their main shareholder.
