Chipotle Mexican Grill No Longer Serving Student Drinks

In just the past couple of weeks there has been a very troubling event in my life and that is that Chipotle Mexican Grill is no longer serving student drinks. It used to be that if you slid right up to the cash register while paying for your food you could flash your student identification card and they would hand you a free regular drink. That was a nice break considering that a chicken burrito with guacamole was about $8 a trip. now, with a drink its over $9.

Now I first discovered this when I visited the Chipotle in Cerritos, CA when I requested a student drink while showing proper identification and the cashier declined. Now I immediately became suspicious because there was an event month earlier in which I visited the Chipotle in Orange, CA and the cashier told me they didn’t give free drinks. I told him I went to Chipotle all the time and they gave out student drinks so after giving me a hard time he simply laughed it off and said “Just kidding”. It was frustrating then and even more frustrating now as I was severely caught off guard. She notified me that they no longer gave out student drinks. I asked her if it was just at the one location but she said that it was company policy and was fact at all of their locations.

I am severely battered by this latest news as Chipotle is definitely up there on my top 5 favorite restaurants of all time. I do plan on still indulging in the great Mexican food there but I think I will have to cut back on my ordering because unlike their shirts say they’re meat isn’t free.

Store Rewards Cards

Store rewards cards are the worst. My mom and I went to Borders tonight and of course the cashier asked us if we had rewards cards. We said no but I tried my dads phone number to see if he had one. I guess he did but i didn’t know his e-mail address or something. So anyways the guy asked us if we wanted to sign up and I said no but my mom said yes after we finished the transaction. The cashier said it was too late because it had to be during a transaction. Story short she bought a piece of candy and signed up for one. Then as he was giving us the new rewards cars I looked at my keychain and I already had a Borders Rewards Card. Then after we went home my came came in the living room and said she already had one too. hahaha. What a funny time.
