Will you be watching the World Series?
If so, you might score yourself a free taco.
According to the Taco Bell Web site, they’re running a contest called “Steal a Base, Steal a Taco,” which is kind of a silly name considering that you don’t have to steal a taco at all so long as they’re handing them out for free.
Here’s how it works: If any player on either team in the Series steals a base, anyone can walk into a participating Taco Bell during a designated period of time and request a free beef taco.
More specifically, if a player steals a base during games 1 or 2 on October 24 or October 25, you can go to Taco Bell for a free taco on Tuesday, October 30 between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. If a base is stolen during games 3-7 on October 27, 28, 29, 31 or November 1, you can claim your free taco on Tuesday, November 6 between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m.
A little confusing, perhaps, but I think they’ll be explaining this again on television if a base is actually stolen.
So, just in case you needed another reason to plant yourself in front of the game, there you go. And even if you don’t think Taco Bell tacos are very good, well, at least they’re FREE!
