Who doesn’t love free guacamole? 

Chipotle hopes to help fans maintain their healthy lifestyles and New Year’s resolutions with the franchise's new augmented reality lens in partnership with Snapchat. 

Beginning Jan. 13 (also known as "quitter’s day," according to Chipotle), fans can access the AR lens on their Snapchat accounts. Those who complete the challenge can get free guacamole on their next Chipotle purchase. 

Chipotle will give away 10,000 free guac promos a day to participants until Jan. 23. Approximately 100,000 will be given away once the challenge ends. 

Here’s how it works

Once fans access the AR lens through their Snapchat accounts, the AR lens will prompt them to exercise and meditate. If successfully completed, the user will get a free promo code for a free small side or topping of guac.
