What’s your Chipotle order?

You know, the one you crave while you’re eating a cold turkey sandwich at your desk on your lunch hour… and when the 3 p.m. crash hits and you can hardly wait for dinner…

You start to build it in your mind as you stare blankly at a computer screen.

Dish? Burrito.

Meat? Sofritas.

Rice? White.

Beans? Pinto. Pause your health kick; this traditional flavor will change your life.

Salsa? Fresh and hot, please. I like options.

Sour cream, guac or cheese? Oh yeah

Chips and salsa? Top me off.

And an ice cold bottle of Izze to wash it all down. Ahhh.

I can tell from the way you’re drooling that you don’t need to be convinced to swing by your nearest Chipotle on the way home from work today. (I’ll see you there…)

So I’ll just say this to make your day better: You can get paid to do it.

How to Earn Money for Your Love of Chipotle

You may already know that Swagbucks can help you earn SBs (digital dollars) by taking surveys or watching videos online that you can redeem for gift cards.

Well, now you can earn more SBs by purchasing gift cards through the site.

You see where we’re going with this? Let’s break it down:

  1. Buy a Chipotle gift card from MyGiftCardsPlus through Swagbucks.
  1. You’ll earn SBs on the purchase you can cash in for future gift cards. Right now a $25 Chipotle gift card will score you 25 SBs. A $50 gift card nets you 50 SBs, and so on.
  1. Do this a few times (and complete some other tasks on Swagbucks) and you can cash your SBs in for another Chipotle card, and enjoy your next burrito. Or pick up a card for a major retailer like Amazon — with its vast selection, that’s almost as good as cash (but not as good as sofritas, tbh).

Plus, if you sign up now, you can get a $5 bonus when you make your first purchase. That’s more than half of your meal paid for!

Stack it with the frequent Chipotle coupons for free chips and guac, and you’ve almost got yourself a free lunch.

To make the most of the deal, try these six tricks to get a bigger burrito for the same price.

Enjoy — ¡salud!
