Jack in the Box is hosting a free taco day again on Tuesday, Nov. 16. Any customer going to a participating Jack in the Box location can have two free tacos on Nov. 16, and there is no purchase necessary. This is an easy to way to enjoy a free lunch at locations all around the country, and you won’t even need to buy anything when you get there.
There are 19 states that currently have Jack in the Box locations right now, and nearly every one of them will be participating in the free food promotion on Tuesday evening. The only real stipulations they have put on the free food is that people can only do it once at the participating location, and the order has to be made after 2 p.m. in order to enjoy the special. This is seemingly an attempt to increase sales later in the day, and of course another way to get customers in the door.
Restaurants like Jack in the Box do these types of promotions in the hope that customers will decide to purchase something else to go along with their tacos — maybe something like a nice refreshing beverage or one of their desserts. Either way, the stores will have money coming in from customers who might not normally have come into the restaurant on Tuesdays. The cost of doing business is to sometimes make offers like this one, and the obvious underlying intent is that people will enjoy the tacos and come back to purchase them again in the future.
Each one of the Jack in the Box tacos has 180 calories and 10 grams of fat, so having two of them isn’t going to kill anyone’s diet. Sure, it isn’t a menu item that people should live off of every day, but enjoying a taco with meat, cheese, lettuce, and sauce is a pretty good option for a snack. Normally the restaurants sell their tacos at two for 99 cents, so in reality customers are only saving about a dollar, but that dollar might be really important for certain customers with the way this economy has been shifting.
