October 23, 2015 // Franchising.com // IRVINE, Calif. – Taco Bell® announced they are once again teaming up with Major League Baseball during the World Series for the popular “Steal a Base, Steal a Breakfast” promotion, giving America the chance to get a free A.M. Crunchwrap ® if any player steals a base during the World Series, which begins Tuesday, Oct. 27 at 8:00 PM (ET) on FOX.
If a base is stolen during Games One or Two, America will get a free A.M. Crunchwrap® on Thursday, Nov. 5 from 7:00 AM to 11:00 AM (local time) at all participating Taco Bell locations. If no player steals a base during the first two games, but a base is stolen during Games Three through Seven, America will get a free A.M. Crunchwrap® on Tuesday, Nov. 10 from 7:00 AM to 11:00 AM (local time) at all participating Taco Bell locations. Fans are invited to check out www.tacobell.com/steal-a-breakfast beginning Thursday, Oct. 22 for more information on how to receive a free A.M. Crunchwrap®. Limit one (1) free A.M. Crunchwrap® per person.
“We think there is no better way for us to share in the excitement of the World Series, than to celebrate and reward all of our fellow fans with a free Taco Bell breakfast,” said Marisa Thalberg, Chief Brand Engagement Officer, Taco Bell Corp. “This year, in partnership with Major League Baseball, we are encouraging the whole country to root for a stolen base in the Series – from either team – because the player who steals that first base will have thereby “stolen” a free breakfast, our A.M. Crunchwrap breakfast sandwich, for all of America." Taco Bell’s partnership with Major League Baseball first began in 2004 with an official league sponsorship. The highly successful “Steal a Base, Steal a Taco” campaign began in 2007, with Jacoby Ellsbury of the Boston Red Sox stealing a base in Game Two of that year’s World Series and earning America a free taco. The program returned to the World Series in 2008 and 2012.
“It’s fun to see Taco Bell bring this promotion back for baseball fans during the World Series,” said Noah Garden, MLB Executive Vice President, Business. “Our fans have really enjoyed it in the past and I’m sure they will be pulling for another stolen base this year.” Taco Bell will support the campaign with an integrated marketing effort that includes advertising (television, online), social media and public relations. Fans will be encouraged to join the conversation by using the hashtag #StealABreakfast.
If a Stolen Base occurs during a Game, Taco Bell will make an announcement through selected media channels, including a press release and its web site (www.tacobell.com/steal-a-breakfast), (collectively, the “Announcement(s)”) that Eligible Consumers may obtain one (1) Free A.M. Crunchwrap® during the Promotion Window on Thursday, November 5, 2015 (if Stolen Base occurs during Game 1, or Game 2) OR Thursday, November 10, 2015 (if Stolen Base occurs during Game 3, Game 4, Game 5, Game 6 or Game 7) ("Redemption Date") only, while supplies last. To obtain the Free A.M. Crunchwrap®, Eligible Consumers must visit and be in line at any participating Taco Bell® restaurant in the Territory between 7:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. (local time) (“Promotion Window”) on the Redemption Date only and request a Free A.M.
