The Toronto Raptors finally giving us a new Finals matchup to watch is more than enough reason to tune in for the last series of the season. But just in case you need a little extra incentive, Chipotle is giving away free burritos to attentive fans.
Every time the word "free" is mentioned on-air, Chipotle will send out a promo code on Twitter. The code can be sent to 888222. In the first half, the first 500 people to send a correct code will be gifted with a free burrito. In the second half, the giveaway goes up to 1000 per mention. The company has committed to giving away up to a million dollars worth of burritos to viewers. In addition, the burrito chain is offering free delivery through their app and DoorDash during the series.
“We know that basketball fans are some of the most passionate fans in sports, so we’re putting even more, about one million dollars more, on the line," Chipotle's Chris Brandt explained in a press release. “Chipotle has never been easier to access and with Chipotle delivery, you never have to choose between basketball and burritos again.”
It's easy to see why fans would have trouble peeling themselves away from the NBA Finals. Beyond it being the Raptors first-ever trip to the championship series, Kawhi Leonard has been superstar kryptonite throughout the playoffs. He's made players like Giannis Antetokounmpo look human in his highlight-filled postseason and seeing if that holds up against this generation's NBA dynasty is more than a little compelling.
