NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., July 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Chipotle Mexican Grill (NYSE: CMG) today announced it is launching a new interactive game called “Buy The Dip” that will give away more than $200,000 in free crypto as well as promo codes for 1-cent guac and 1-cent Queso Blanco through July 31, National Avocado Day*.

Starting at 10am PT today, fans can access the “Buy The Dip” game by visiting: www.chipotlebuythedip.xyz. The game will be open from 10am PT to 6pm PT each day through Sunday, July 31.

Crypto at Chipotle

Chipotle now accepts digital currency, including cryptocurrency, nationwide through a partnership with Flexa, the global leader in pure-digital payments. Guests can use 98 different digital currencies, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Avalanche, Solana, and Dogecoin, to pay for their real food at Chipotle with a Flexa-enabled app. Chipotle first immersed itself in the crypto space in April of 2021 when it became the first U.S. restaurant brand to launch a cryptocurrency giveaway through its “Burritos or Bitcoin” promotion, which dished out $100,000 in Bitcoin to celebrate National Burrito Day.
