“Steal a Base, Steal a Taco” at Taco Bell

Batter up, hungry bargain hunters! Thanks to Atlanta Braves’ second baseman Ozzie Albies stealing second base in Game 1 of the World Series, Taco Bell’s “Steal A Base, Steal A Taco” offer was triggered. And that means America gets to crunch on one of the Mexican fast-food restaurant’s most popular menu items at no cost. On Nov. 4, make a run to Taco Bell and pick up a free Doritos Locos Taco. No purchase is necessary. Taco Bell Rewards members can access the complimentary taco early via the app.
