You read that right. According to Chipotle’s website, texting “raincheck” to 888-222 will land you a free burrito. The website reads “If we messed up your lunch plans today, follow the steps and we’ll hook you up.”

The move comes as Chipotle stores are closed across the country for most of today. The stores closed so food safety meetings could be conducted following E-Coli outbreaks involving its restaurants, according to USA Today.

It takes a few minutes to get a reply, but from there you click a link and enter your name and zipcode, and then you are promised a free burrito in the coming days.

The “raincheck” deal is accepting texts until 6 p.m.
