Chipotle: Get a free ‘Boorito’ via an online game, Roblox.

A person's hand circling the word Boo-rito written on the 31st of October on a calendar.

In 2021, playing Roblox was the only way to get your free Boorito that year. Starting at 6:30 p.m. ET from Oct. 28 – 31, you could play the Chipotle Boorito Maze game and earn a code for your free Boorito (regularly $6.50).

They only gave out 30,000 codes a day, so you had to rush to get your coupon code. We’ve got more details about the annual Chipotle Boorito promotion.

For those unable (or unwilling?) to play Roblox, Chipotle gave a coupon for a $5 burrito, bowl, salad, or taco entree when you used the code BOORITO on checkout — a 76.9% discount.

These deals were only available through the website or app, so there were no in-person deals.


Krispy Kreme: Wearing a costume will get you a free Krispy Kreme Halloween donut.
