You're likely to be on the lookout for some pranks this April Fools Day but this one is no joke. Today is National Burrito Day and there are some good deals to be had.

Chipotle Mexican Grill (multiple locations) is offering a "cryptocurrency giveaway to consumers" through its "Burritos or Bitcoin" game. The chain is working with Stefan Thomas, founder and CEO of Coil, for the game described as "a playful ode to Thomas' experience losing the password to his hard drive that stored $387 million in Bitcoin." The German-born programmer living in San Francisco made headlines in January for getting locked out of his digital wallet.
To carry out a mock "chiptocurrency" rescue mission, players have 10 tries to guess a correct six-digit passcode for a chance at prizes. Three fans will win $25,000 in Bitcoin, 50 will win $500 in Bitcoin and 10,000 fans will win one free burrito.
Enter to win starting at 9 a.m. Thursday at burritosorbitcoin.com.
