Free Chipotle Burritos When You Play Online Quiz Game Friend or Faux

Chipotle is giving away free burritos starting July 21 through the end of August.

Here's another great giveaway from Chipotle: To get free food, all you need to do is play the fast-casual restaurant's new online quiz game Friend or Faux. Do so and you'll get a "buy-one-get-one-free" burrito deal and be entered for a chance to win free Chipotle for you and a friend for a year.

The campaign is intended to highlight the fact that the chain requires just 68 ingredients to make each of its menu items using pasture-raised meats, domestic produce, and little to no additives. In addition, Chipotle — which went GMO-free in April — wants you to know it's testing a new, all-natural tortilla that would remove many of the remaining preservatives off its menu.

Chipotle is using the online game to educate customers about which popular fast-food items use fresh, healthy ingredients versus those that use meat additives and other "faux" food items.
"There's a lot of talk these days about food companies removing artificial ingredients from their food," reads the website. "But did you know that most of the recent announcements by other restaurant companies cover only a portion of the thousands of additives used in processed foods?"

You can play Friend or Faux on both your smartphone and desktop. Simply pick two menu items and match the ingredients used to prepare them. Get the majority of the questions correct and you'll be awarded a "buy-one-get-one" discount on any Chipotle burrito (while supplies last). Get too many wrong and you have to play again to receive the coupon. Don't worry about being wrong: Chipotle even offers a free test run to study before you actually play.

Once you win, just enter your name and cell-phone number, and the offer will be sent to your mobile device, which you can use to redeem at any participating restaurant.

If one free burrito isn't enough, Chipotle is also offering free Chipotle for two for one year to 50 players. An additional 100 participants will receive a catered Chipotle party for 20 friends. Completing the game leads to one entry in the sweepstakes. Share on Twitter or Facebook and you'll get an additional entry.
