Fans of Chipotle who have been wondering when they were going to start a loyalty program will be glad to know it’s coming soon. Chipotle Rewards, a points-based program is being tested in three markets now, so if you live in Phoenix, Kansas City (both in Kansas and Missouri) or Columbus, Ohio, you get in on the fun first. The rest of us have to wait for 2019.
The program is supposed to work like this: eligible customers sign up on Chipotle’s site or app and start earning points that can be used to earn Chipotle freebies. For every dollar you spend, you earn 10 points and when you hit 1,250 points, you get a free entree of your choice. And if you’re not in one of the three chosen markets testing the program first, you can sign up on the rewards page of Chipotle’s site to be alerted when it’s available in your area. And 2019 will be here before you know it.
