Taco Bell is handing out free tacos at restaurants around the U.S. in their “Steal a Base, Steal a Taco” promotion during the World Series.
Here’s how the promotion works: If a player on either the Cleveland Indians or Chicago Cubs steals a base in Game 1 or Game 2, you can pick up a free Doritos Locos Taco on November 2nd.
Francisco Lindor from the Cleveland Indians was able to steal a base in the first inning of Game 1 of the World Series, meaning everyone gets a free taco!
If a base wasn’t stolen until Game 3 or later, Taco Bell would have given out a free Taco on November 10th.
To obtain the taco, consumers must visit any participating Taco Bell restaurant in one of the fifty United States or the District of Columbia between 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. (local time) on the redemption date only and request a free Doritos Locos Taco. There is a limit of one taco per person. There is no purchase necessary. The promotion is open to residents of the fifty United States and the District of Columbia only.
Taco Bell first launched the “Steal a Base, Steal Taco promotion in 2007.
Jacoby Ellsbury, of the Boston Red Sox, stole second base during Game 2 of the 2007 World Series.
In the 2008 World Series Jason Bartlett of the Tampa Bay Rays stole a base in Game 1.
The promotion went on again in the 2012 World Series where Angel Pagan of the San Francisco Giants stole a base in Game 2.
A similar offer for free A.M Crunchwraps was made in the 2015 World Series where Lorenzo Cain of the Kansas City Royals stole second base in Game 1.
