The only thing better than tacos is free tacos, am I right? (Of course I am).

Lucky for you, Taco Bell agrees and is handing them out for free for one day only!

It’s all thanks to the fast-food chain teaming up with Major League Baseball for their “Steal A Base, Steal A Taco” promotion. For the seventh year in a row, the promotion means that everyone in the country can score a free taco once the first base is stolen in the MLB World Series.

This year, it’s already happened! On Tuesday, Oct. 22, during Game 1, Trea Turner of the Washington Nationals stole second base. So thanks to Turner, a free taco is headed your way!

Just head to your local Taco Bell on Oct. 30 from 2-6 p.m. local time and you’ll be able to score a free Nacho Cheese Doritos Locos Taco — no purchase necessary. If you can’t make it between 2 and 6, you can register on Taco Bell’s website or download their app and redeem your taco online for in-store pickup all day on Oct. 30.

Regardless of whether you get your taco in-store or redeem the deal online, the offer is only good on Oct. 30. There is a limit of one free Doritos Locos Taco per person or registered account. The offer does not include delivery, upgrades or substitutions. You can, of course, buy as many other tacos as you wish.

If you’ve never had a Nacho Cheese Doritos Locos Taco, it’s pretty much the same as Taco Bell’s hard shell taco, but the shell is made of Nacho Cheese Doritos. The free taco includes beef, cheese and lettuce, but you can customize any others you order by adding things like sour cream, tomatoes and even rice or Fritos for an extra crunch.

Will you be heading to your local Taco Bell on Oct. 30 for your free taco?
