If you’re not one for sitting down to a romantic, candlelight dinner on Valentine’s Day, QDOBA Mexican Eats is offering a deal you can either share with a loved one or keep all to yourself.
The Mexican fast-casual restaurant chain is once again offering their “QDOBA for a Kiss” promotion. For the tenth year in a row, all you have to do to get a free burrito (or any entree of your choice) is purchase an entree, then smooch your significant other, a picture of your celebrity crush, a picture of your pet, yourself or even a cup of queso (seriously!).
“For the last decade, we’ve witnessed parents kissing their children, partners pecking each other, and even guests kissing their burritos on Valentine’s Day, all in the name of free QDOBA,” Jill Adams, vice president of marketing at QDOBA Mexican Eats said in a press release. “We’re all about bringing flavor to people’s lives, and our QDOBA for a Kiss event gives guests double the flavor that day.”
Any kiss counts, but even if you’re kissing a picture on your phone, you’ll still have to buy an entree at participating locations to get the free one. But, hey, that just means you get two burritos for the price of one!
You can also choose from other entrees like tacos, burrito bowls, salads, quesadillas and nachos. You can mix and match as well, so you could choose a quesadilla, then get your burrito for free.
The deal is only good on Feb. 14 at participating locations. QDOBA is not available in Alabama, Hawaii, New Mexico, Rhode Island and Vermont.
After you’re done smooching and chowing down on your burritos, QDOBA is asking you to share a kiss photo or favorite memory with a loved one on Instagram for a chance to win a $100 QDOBA gift card. Just include the hashtag #QDOBAforaKiss and follow @qdoba to enter. Make sure your Instagram is set to “public” so QDOBA can see your post.
If you don’t have a QDOBA near you, you can also find a Valentine’s Day deal at Olive Garden. You don’t have to kiss anyone for this deal — just place a to-go order and you’ll get soup or salad, breadsticks and dipping sauce, an entree, and dessert. This all comes with wrappers to make a breadstick bouquet and a box for after-dinner mints.
Do you have plans for this Valentine’s Day?
