Chipotle Buy One Get One Free Burrito, Burrito Bowl, Taco, or Salad via Printable Coupon EXPIRED
The network is launching an app on the show's Facebook Page where, in exchange for watching the promo, visitors get a buy-one, get-one-free coupon at Chipotle. The chain's founder and CEO, Steve Ells, is one of four investors in the show.
Customers who print out the coupon can get a free Chipotle meal, including a burrito, tacos or a bowl with the purchase of another meal.
Meanwhile, Chipotle is running an in-store texting promotion offering a chance to get a catered burrito party. Anyone who texts "ANGR" (for America's Next Great Restaurant) at any Chipotle location will have a chance to win.
An NBC rep says this is the first time the network has used food to get consumers to watch a show promo. Nevertheless, the network has tried other means to instill viewer loyalty. For instance, last year, NBC launched a loyalty program called Fan It that rewards users who promote, interact and discuss NBC shows.
America's Next Great Restaurant, which premieres March 6, pits 21 contestants against each other as a panel of judges decide whose restaurant concept is the best. The winner gets to "fully savor his/her great American dream of launching his/her own restaurant chain," according to the NBC rep.
For Chipotle, which does little in the way of traditional advertising, the effort is the latest unconventional use of social media. The chain launched a similarly quirky effort last year encouraging consumers to forward their spam e-mails to benefit a charity offering healthy school lunches to kids.
DEAL IS DEAD (3/6 7:00 PM CST)
Today (3/6/11) is the LAST day to get coupons.
Promotion runs from 2/23/11 - 3/6/11. Offer expires seven (7) days after video is viewed.
I just used the coupon .. it seems you may use the coupon again on another day, same pace or other location (just print multiple copies) they don't seem to be putting the coupon code in the system to keep a track... (Just FYI, when at chipotle tonight I heard the manager saying to save the coupons/receipts of the BOGO orders, don't think this is to check duplicates, but be warned)
2 for the price of 1 viola till the offer ends!
For coupon check comment #346, fb link is added.
If you want a ton of UNIQUE coupons....clear your history/cookies and watch again.......boom new unique code!
Also, new browser = new coupon code also.
I just cleared my history from the last hour and success!!
For those interested in the show (which looks pretty good), as a reminder, starts March 6 at 8pm on NBC
From Thumbs Up: Just use incognito window on Google Chrome - In incognito - just click a few times towards the end of the video and it will let you skip the whole thing!
Chipotle types the code into their computer and it will take off the price of the one burrito. I strongly suggest you use a true UNIQUE code or you are going to get turned away. Just because there is no barcode does not mean you can use the same coupon millions of times. There is a unique code for a reason.....
For those of us who have Facebook blocked at work, this is a direct link to the video and coupon page. Just let the video run and the coupon will automatically populate. Also, if you need more than one unique code and are using Firefox, you can delete your cookies after printing each coupon. If you don't know how to clear your cookies, the instructions are here .
You only need to watch/skip video once...afterwards just clear cookies and refresh coupon page to generate new code
Refresh/Clear Cookie/Refresh/Clear Cookie...etc.
Repeat & Feast
I had success using Chrome's incognito mode to get multiple unique codes (just close window and reopen). Did not need to "Like" the page and one time was able to skip to the end of the video. - Same here, just used incognito and each time you reopen the browser it resets.
I watched the video with IE7, printed the coupon, then did tools-options clear internet data, then simply did a CTRL+F5 on the page w/ the coupon code, hit Retry at the prompt. page reloads with a new code, no need to rewatch/close browser!!!
If you are at work and Facebook is not blocked but the Facebook app (embedded part that plays the video) times out for you, port 8180 is blocked on your network. Go home or some other network that does not block port 8180 and print it out. Or you can try and find a proxy that works with it but most probably won't.
If you don't have a printer, I can confirm that it will work if you show it to them on your cell phone (picture or email doesn't matter). Happy Chipotle-ing!!
Edit: YMMV this because I went the same day at nighttime at a different location and they wouldn't accept it without a tangible paper copy, good luck!
Don't feel like working to get your multiple coupons?
Personmans' has taken care of the hard part. REP THIS MAN!
Simply refresh to get a new code and hit print to print it.
**Link is working again, please excuse the down time. Seems NBC changed some information on their side.**
