Our Favorite Chipotle Savings Hack

1. If you haven’t already, sign up for Swagbucks here (takes 30 seconds) and then navigate to the “MyGiftCardsPlus” tab.

2. Purchase a $25 Chipotle gift card and Swagbucks will automatically credit you with a free $5 — plus you’ll earn 25 SBs. You’ve got to be a new Swagbucks member for this to work and these digital rewards can later be traded in for more Chipotle gift cards or even Paypal deposits.

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

Enjoy — ¡salud!
