Chipotle one of the first to partner with Facebook deals

In the wake of this week's announcement that Chipotle Mexican Grill has an Asian fast-casual spot in the works comes a way to score a sweet deal at the original concept.

If you have a smartphone, that is.

Chipotle announced that it'll be among the handful of companies to partner with Facebook Deals, a new service that offers discounts to members who check in at the deal-mongering company's location. (Think Foursquare meets Groupon.)

For the roll-out, Chipotle locations will offer a buy-one-get-one deal for any entree for customers who check-in on November 13 and 14 or November 20 and 21. To score your free burrito, bowl, tacos or salad, you just need to show the cashier your check-in when you get to the register.
