If you like free stuff then you’re in luck. Several businesses are offering deals you can grab without reaching for the wallet. It’s partly because it’s National Teacher Appreciation Day and National Nurses Week. But even if you aren’t a teacher or nurse, there’s still some freebies for you.
Chipotle: It's buy one get one for teachers at Chipotle. The company is thanking those who fill minds with knowledge as they fill their stomachs with burritos. Starting that 3PM until close on Tuesday, May 8th, teachers, faculty and staff with valid school ID get BOGO on burrito, bowls, salads, and orders of tacos.

Barre3 Philadelphia: Locally, Barre3 Rittenhouse is celebrating National Nurses Week by offering free classes to local nurses all week long. If you've never heard of barre3 think a mix of barre and yoga. I've taken a few classes... wow are they empowering and a great way to let go of the stress. So nurses, call their studio at (267) 639-6704 to reserve your spot and enjoy your downward dog.
