The fan favorite “Steal a Base” promotion returns with “Steal a
Base, Steal a Breakfast,” set to reward America with millions of free
A.M. Crunchwraps® if a base is stolen during the 2015 World Series
IRVINE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Taco Bell® today 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
