You can buy gift cards for eating at your local Chipotle restaurant, but read the back of the card for some entertaining information:
Believe it or not, this card is made from corn plastic, an abundant, renewable resource. While it does help to reduce the demand for petroleum based plastics, it is still not edible. So please refrain from eating the card. But you can use the card to eat, obviously, at Chipotle.
Treat your Chipotle gift card like cash. Cash that may only be used for making purchases at Chipotle restaurants – you can try and use it someplace else, but it won’t be accepted, and you’ll probably be mocked. It cannot be redeemed for cash or applied as payment to any account unless required by law. Chipotle is not responsible for unauthorized use of this card – namely someone other than the rightful owner using it to score a burrito. Except in certain circumstances, the value on this card will not be replaced if the card is lost, stolen or destroyed. Use of this card, constitutes acceptance of these terms and conditions.
It is good to see that the folks at Chipotle have a good sense of humor, and are able to mock the standard legalese that most gift cards force upon us.
I have never eaten at a Chipotle restaurant, so I cannot comment on the food. But if you have eaten at Chipotle, let us know what you think.
