Free Burrito

Chipotle is giving one free burrito per customer annually at participating Chipotle locations on select days:

-> Halloween October 31'2007. Come dressed as a burrito. A typical response to this requirement is to dress up in

aluminum foil, creating the appearance of a burrito still in the wrapper.

Other ideas that work or worked previously - (something of foil visible on your body).Size does not matter it can be a foil crown or a foil hat or foil wrist bands.

Other Free Burrito days at Chipotle : (All locations may not participate in this promotion)

-> Tax Day April 15. Pick up the mock tax form BurritoEZ from your local participating Chipotle restaurant before or on Tax Day. Bring in the completed form on Tax Day for your free burrito.

-> Leap years February 29 - Buy a burrito on Feb 29, and check at the bottom of your receipt to redeem your receipt for a free burrito, valid for 2 weeks.

-> On Homecoming and Prom nights, young women receive a free burrito if they come to Chipotle wearing their homecoming and prom dresses.

Cheap Date

My Husband and I don't go on dates much without our son for a number of reasons, but today we're going!!! He loves planes and would be in the airforce with his brothers if he didn't have a bum knee. With that said we're going to the airport, where we can sit and watch the runway traffic... Then we're headed to Red Lobster, since we have a $4 off coupon from the paper that expires Oct 31st and of course a $25 Gift Card thanks to Discover's Cash back program! Then after dinner we'll head over to Barnes and Noble Cafe for a free tall cappacino. So all in all we'll pay for gas to travel, a tip at Red Lobster and a small token for grandma and grandpa for the free babysitting!

Another upcoming dinner out will be at Taco Bell Tues Oct 28th!!! The World series actual gets us free tacos! Check it out!

Walgreens regularly scheduled weekend coupon

Well since WAGS keeps popping these great $/$$ coupons I feel I should stop shopping there during the week!!! Of course I got the news last night just as I returned from where other than WAGS!!! I was a little upset, but since I spent $3.26 OOP I don't feel too bad because I don't think I could spend $25 to use this coupon... but for those of you who can GO for IT!!!
Don't forget the Free After Rebate Items!!!!
