Free Xbox One X Consoles Available To Some Who Are Willing To Eat Taco Bell

Microsoft also partnered with Taco Bell in 2001 for the OG Xbox.

122 Comments

Microsoft's Xbox One X console will cost $500 when it launches this November, but you can possibly get one for free... by eating Taco Bell. Starting on August 31, the $5 Steak Quesarito box will come with a code that you can redeem for a chance to win.

There will be a lot of winners, it seems, as Microsoft says in a news release that a potential winner will be selected every 10 minutes for the duration of the promo, which runs August 31 through October 4. In addition to the console, winners will receive a copy of Forza Motorsport 7 and a three-month Xbox Game Pass subscription.

No Caption Provided

As Microsoft reminds us, Microsoft and Taco Bell teamed up for a promotion around the original Xbox in 2001, and now the companies are "returning to their roots with this promotion to launch the Xbox One X." In more recent years, Taco Bell has partnered with Sony to promote PlayStation consoles.

"It's only fitting that the two brands that do 'boxes' best and have some of the greatest fans in the world have joined forces to box up the ultimate food and gaming offer for them," Taco Bell marketing executive Marisa Thalberg said. "We see this partnership with Xbox as yet another way Taco Bell is tapping what is current in culture and providing our fans access to unique experiences they cannot get anywhere else."

The Xbox One X launches on November 7, though it's not immediately clear when the winners will receive their consoles. Keep checking back with GameSpot for more.

Pre-orders for the Xbox One X will reportedly open soon. If you're attending Gamescom later this month in Germany, you can try out the console before everyone else.

@Dragerdeifrit: That wouldn't be weird, it would be illegal. Taco bell are not banned from Mexico..but they might as well be. They've tried two launches, but locals just don't rate the food which is not surprising considering how much better they are used to.

I love Taco Bell. Almost as much as KFC. And this place has BOTH.

Hipsters want everyone to eat Kale with Kale sauce. Screw you. I'll eat wherever I want, shit and die on the toilet seat because that makes me happy.

Like any other contest/sweepstakes in the U.S., this has to be "no purchase necessary" by law. You don't have to eat any Taco Bell.

C. Without a Purchase (Online Code Request): Between 12:00 AM ET on September 22, 2017 and 11:59:59 PM ET on October 4, 2017, an eligible consumer may click here and follow the on-screen instructions to obtain the online entry code (the “Online Code”). No more than one (1) Online Code may be obtained through this method (note: the Online Code is non-unique and may be used up to one [1] time per entrant per day between 12:00 AM ET on September 22, 2017 and 11:59:59 PM ET on October 4, 2017).

@BuyaPC: we got an absurd amount of corruption inside our goverment (to the point they openly admit it), Cartels destroying the north of the country, and really shitty music. Food is like the only remarkable thing we got over here, and Taco bell ruins it :V, i once ate there, it tastes like plastic compared to real tacos, i think Taco bell is now banned here anyways.

I take it this is for the US only?

I'll be trading my S in for the X.

At $650 Aus I still think it'll be a hard sell here. $550 which is what I paid for my day one 500gig X1 which is still running fine would have been a better more acceptable price.

Doesn't matter all that much to me though I'm getting it regardless. It's going to be awesome playing Gears, Forza, Halo as well as all the newer and older games in 4K with better performance and some like Halo 5 at 60 FPS.

Can't wait.?✌️

I like Taco Bell, but they always cancel the items I like (Chili Cheese Burrito, Steak and Potato burrito, etc.) and when I do get something, they aren't made correctly. Apparently Taco Bell thinks a regular taco is 10% meat, 88% lettuce, and 2% cheese.

There's nothing wrong with Taco Bell. Don't understand the mindless hate. I rather eat at Taco Bell than at any disgusting diner or TGI Friday's. Last time I went to TGI Friday's they gave a bloody burger.

@ButDuuude: It's popular to hate on mass-produced quality food products. Taco Bell is fine. McDonalds is fine. Food doesn't make you fat. Sitting on your ass all day and not moving makes you fat.

Sadly, never will we see anything like "Win an Xbox with the purchase of organic grapes at Whole Foods." "Earn a chance to win a PS4 Pro with the purchase of canned corn at Trader Joe's!"

If you told me I was guaranteed to win 1 by just eating 10 Taco Bell meals, I’d still opt to pay $500. Just sayin..
