Do you like tacos? What about baseball? And free food? Even if only two of the three apply, you’re in luck, because the World Series is happening right now, and so is Taco Bell’s ninth annual “Steal a Base, Steal a Taco” promotion. Here’s how and when to get your hands on this deal.

Editor’s Note: This offer is only available for Taco Bell fans in the U.S. unfortunately.

How to use baseball to get free tacos

The rules are mostly the same: the first time someone steals a base in the World Series, Taco Bell has agreed to give out one free taco per customer on a designated day. That day is October 28, and this year, the free taco will be a Doritos Locos Taco. As it turns out, someone — specifically, Mookie Betts of the Los Angeles Dodgers — has already stolen a base in the World Series, so the deal is on!

And, if you’re not already a member of Taco Bell’s Rewards Program, you’ll also get a free taco when you sign up. That’s two free tacos for those following along at home.

The fine print

Unlike some freebies, you don’t have to make any other purchases at Taco Bell in order to claim your free taco. The promotion is open to residents of all 50 states and Washington, D.C. only. There is a limit of one (1) free Doritos Locos Taco per person or registered account (though the offer excludes Doritos Locos Tacos Supreme).

The giveaway lasts from 12 am to 11:59 pm local time on October 28, 2020, and will only be available while supplies last. And while the World Series giveaway isn’t available when you order food for delivery, you can still order online or via their mobile app, or just walk in (with your mask on) and order in person.
