Freebies and must-have deals for National Taco Day 2018

National Taco Day 2018 deals

National Tequila Day came and went this year. So did National Avocado Day. And if you missed out on deals then, you’ll be glad to know National Taco Day 2018 is here to please your palate — or as Guy Fieri says, take you to “Flavortown.”

On October 4, major restaurant chains across the country are offering free tacos and other deals you won’t want to miss out on.

Offers.com surveyed over 1,000 consumers in honor of National Taco Day 2018 to find out Americans’ favorite taco fillings. Over half — 54 percent — named beef as their go-to choice. Next came chicken at 23 percent and fish at 7 percent. 

According to their data, 56 percent of Americans spent between $1 and $20 per month on tacos. Three percent dropped over $81, but are you surprised?

An Offers.com spokesperson tells Metro they didn’t survey people on shell preferences — hard or soft — though we’re sure a debate on that could go on long past National Taco Day.

Whether you’re a taco fanatic or take part in the occasional splurge, October 4 is a celebration worth partaking in.
