(WXIN) – The only thing better than your favorite team stealing a base during the World Series is getting rewarded for it.
On Tuesday, Taco Bell announced that the long-awaited “steal a base, steal a taco” promotion is returning for an 11th year during the 2022 World Series.
As always, Taco Bell will give fans a free Nacho Cheese Doritos Locos Taco if any MLB player manages to steal a base. However, this year Taco Bell is changing things up to make the promotion a home run.
While fans previously had to wait up to a week to redeem a free taco, this year Taco Bell is giving its Taco Bell Rewards members the option to grab their taco early.
Fans who sign up for Taco Bell rewards by the start of the World Series or within 10 days of a stolen base can get their free taco the same night.
Taco Bell is also offering reward members the chance to predict who they think will steal first base and become America’s Taco Hero in 2022. If they get it right, the fan will receive an upgraded medium fountain drink prize with their Nacho Cheese Doritos Locos Tacos. Fans have until 23:59 on October 27 to submit their predictions.
