If you’re among the many Americans who have been putting off trying Taco Bell’s new breakfast menu, now’s your chance.

Hit up your nearest Taco Bell between 7-11 a.m. tomorrow and you’ll get one free A.M. Crunchwrap, thanks to Kansas City Royals outfielder Lorenzo Cain.

If you haven’t been keeping up with America’s pastime, here’s what you need to know:

  • The Kansas City Royals faced the New York Mets in the World Series. (Spoiler: Royals won, 4-1.)
  • As part of its promotional deal with Major League Baseball, Taco Bell promised a free A.M. Crunchwrap for all of America on Nov. 5 if any player stole a base in either the first or second game of the Series.

(Don’t worry; I wasn’t paying attention, either, until someone mentioned free tacos.)

How to Get Free Taco Bell Breakfast

Other than a week-long wait that irritated some MLB and Taco Bell fans, this promotion is pretty straightforward.

Get in line at any participating Taco Bell between 7 a.m. and 11 a.m. (local time) on Thursday, Nov. 5, and ask for a free A.M. Crunchwrap. Limit one per person.

And let us know how it goes!

TPH editor Kathleen will be up early to snag her free breakfast, and she’ll share the details of what we expect to be a madhouse via live tweet @thepennyhoarder #stealabreakfast. Don’t miss it!

Your Turn: Will you visit Taco Bell for free breakfast tomorrow morning?
