Introducing Extras from Chipotle Rewards
Today, Chipotle is officially rolling out Extras, an exclusive feature for Chipotle Rewards members that unlocks access to extra points, helping members get to free Chipotle even faster.

Extras gamifies Chipotle Rewards with personalized challenges to earn extra points and collect achievement badges. Chipotle is the first national restaurant brand to launch badges as part of its loyalty program. To celebrate the launch of Extras, Chipotle Rewards members can get double points on a purchase through September 3*.

How it Works
Chipotle Rewards members can access Extras by visiting their profile on the Chipotle app or Chipotle.com. Members can participate in Extras to earn extra points towards rewards, plus collect all-new achievement badges. Points can be redeemed for a variety of rewards in the Rewards Exchange for free menu items, apparel, and more.

“Offering new ways to engage with Chipotle is essential to the ongoing evolution of our digital business,” said Chris Brandt, Chief Marketing Officer. “The new Extras feature gamifies Chipotle Rewards through special challenges and allows Rewards members to celebrate their achievements with special badges.”

Chipotle Rewards members earn 10 points for every $1 spent in the restaurant, online, or in the app – and now with Extras, can have chances to earn even more. Members can redeem their points in the Rewards Exchange, choosing from more than fifteen different reward options including free guac, drinks, and apparel from Chipotle Goods. Members can also redeem their points to support a variety of Chipotle’s non-profit partners like The Farmlink Project, National Young Farmers Coalition, and the National Urban League.
