It doesn't matter if you were rooting for the Milwaukee Bucks or the Phoenix Suns in Game 6 of the NBA Finals. Heck, it doesn't even matter if you realized the NBA Finals were underway. All you need to know is that Taco Bell is doling out free Flamin' Hot Doritos Locos tacos to everyone in the US today, Thursday, July 22. It's all part of the fast food chain's Comebacks promotion, which was triggered on Tuesday night when the Bucks ultimately defeated the Suns 105–98 after overcoming a nail-biting deficit at halftime.

Now that you've canceled your lunch plans, here's how to cash in: Simply head to your favorite Taco Bell location during store hours on Thursday, July 22 and ask (nicely) for your freebie; the offer can also be redeemed via the website or mobile app. You'll be rewarded with a gratis Flamin' Hot Doritos Locos taco in all its red-hot, powder-dusted glory. Not a fan of the super-spicy taco? (Blasphemy!) If you hit the drive-thru or an in-store register IRL you can sub in a Nacho Cheese Doritos Locos taco, Crunchy taco or Soft taco instead.

You don't need to make a purchase to cash in, but a single taco warrants some companionship – might we suggest a Cheesy Gordita Crunch and an order of Nacho Fries? Heck, this comeback might even call for a Baja Blast. It's also worth noting that there's a limit of one free taco per person while supplies last, so you should plan your T-Bell trip earlier in the day to avoid heartache.

This delicious Taco Bell freebie is good for one day only – that's Thursday, July 22 – so go forth and get 'em while they're hot.
