Chipotle is giving away free burritos during the 2019 NBA Finals

Throughout the NBA Finals, Chipotle will be giving away free burritos totaling up to $1 million.

That's a lot of burritos.

If you don't have Kawhi Leonard-like prowess and aren't one of the first people to snag the codes, Chipotle still has a consolation prize for you.

Chipotle may not be an official National Basketball Association sponsor, but that isn't going to stop them from using the Finals as a way to promote some free goodies for avid burrito fans.

During the 2019 NBA Finals, Chipotle will give away free burritos every time an announcer says, "Free".

The Chipotle Twitter account revealed the news today, but you'll have to act fast!

Yep, you read that right. "The message will include an alphanumeric code and identify the number of free entrée offers that are available".

Here's how it works: whenever one of ABC's team of Mike Breen, Jeff Van Gundy, Mark Jackson and Doris Burke says the word "free" (as in "free throw, "free agent", etc.,) during the broadcast, Chipotle will tweet out a promo code for free food".

Any mention of the word "free" by the principal play-by-play announcer, color commentator, or sideline reporter during the first half of the game will result in 500 free burritos, while any mention during the second half means 1000 free burritos.

Chipotle isn't an official sponsor of the NBA, but that isn't going to stop them from promoting some free giveaways throughout the "men's professional basketball championship series" between the Golden State Warriors and Toronto Raptors.

But, hey, free Chipotle is as acceptable of a reason as any. The chain will be offering free delivery-on orders $10 or more made through the Chipotle app, Chipotle.com and DoorDash-throughout the entire series.
