Did you make lunch plans for today? Cancel them. It's Taco Tuesday and you have a prior engagement at Taco Bell that involves a free Doritos Locos Tacos. Set an alarm for 2:00 p.m. and make sure you haul ass before the clock strikes 6:00 p.m. And if your afternoon plans are that important, take advantage of the fact that U.S. customers can claim a free taco at any time of day through the Taco Bell app or online.
While the Golden State Warriors didn't win the Championship, they did right by us and the whole country by stealing a game and earning us free tacos.

Perhaps you’re a selective sports fan, only tuning into games to root for your favorite female athlete (when is it ever not Serena Williams?). But when it comes to free things, we’re indiscriminate: If it’s free, we’re probably taking two of each.
Taco Bell is giving basketball fans and freebie-lovers something to celebrate. Once a team in the NBA Finals steals a game, Taco Bell will give away free tacos to everyone on June 18th.
Here's how it works: When the road team (a team from out of town) beats the home team on its own turf, it “steals” a win, and we all get free tacos. Last night, for example, the Golden State Warriors stole a road win from the Toronto Raptors and, plot twist, the freebie of the day will be Doritos Locos Tacos.
Taco Bell is counting down the days to June 18th and so should you. You can only claim your free taco from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. in stores. If you can’t make it to the store on time you can also claim your free taco by ordering online or through the app.
