Taco Bell Offers Free Doritos Locos Tacos This November

Good news, Taco Bell fans — on Nov. 1, you can head to the chain to grab your very own Doritos Locos Taco for free thanks to Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts.

On Tuesday, Betts stole a base during the Red Sox's World Series game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, and due to Taco Bell's Steal A Base, Steal A Taco promotion, literally everyone can get a free taco on Nov. 1 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

"It happened!" the chain tweeted after the fact. "A base was stolen in the #WorldSeries and that means all of America gets to steal a free Doritos Locos Tacos."

The MLB's Twitter account also shared a video message from Betts himself.

"That's for everybody," Betts said of his stolen base, pointing at the camera and smiling. "Make sure you go get you a taco."

Taco Bell has been running the Steal A Base, Steal A Taco promotion for several years and states that "If a base is stolen by any player for either team during any game of the 2018 World Series championship...Taco Bell will offer every person in the 50 U.S. and District of Columbia the opportunity to obtain one free Doritos Locos Taco at participating Taco Bell restaurants in the United States and District of Columbia on the Redemption Date designated herein, while supplies last."

The Nov. 1 redemption date comes after the World Series is set to conclude, with the Red Sox currently leading the Dodgers 2-0. The next game in the series takes place on Friday, Oct. 26.

Customers can score their free taco on Nov. 1 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., and those registered on Taco Bell's website or app can redeem their Doritos Locos Taco online if they so choose.


Taco Bell's Doritos Locos Tacos made their debut a few years ago and feature a crunchy Doritos-flavored taco encasing classic Taco Bell taco ingredients.
