Everyone in America gets Taco Bell on Wednesday, thanks to basketball. More specifically, thanks to the Golden State Warriors' victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on their home court in Game 3 of the NBA Finals last week. While Warriors fans are rubbing the giveaway in Cavs fans’ faces, everyone -- even those who don’t follow basketball -- have something to celebrate: free tacos.
When and how to get the free tacos
Here's the deal: Head to your local T-Bell any time between 2pm and 6pm (local time) on Wednesday, June 13, and they'll give you one free Doritos Locos Taco. That's it. You don't need a coupon, you don’t need to download an app, and best of all, you don't even need to buy anything -- though, you'll likely end up adding a Crunchwrap or two to complete your meal. In any case, don't forget to grab a few packets of Fire Sauce.
Oh, and maybe get there a little early so you can get a good place in line.
Why Taco Bell is giving away free tacos
The giveaway is the result of Taco Bell's annual "Steal a Game, Steal a Taco" promotion and was officially triggered when the Warriors defeated the Cavs 110-102 in Game 3 of the NBA Finals in Cleveland on June 6. For the third year in a row, the chain promised free Doritos Locos for everyone in America in the event that the away team wins -- or “steals” -- a game on the home team’s court during the big hoops tournament. Taco Bell has also staged a similar promotion during the World Series in recent years.
