Free Tacos at Jack in the Box this Thursday

Cathy Jun 21, 2008 08:26 AM

Anyone who presents a gas receipt at any one of the 2100 Jack in the Box restaurants in 18 states gets two free tacos.

This Thursday, June 26, 2008.

    Jack himself is advertising this on a video!


    Don't you think Jack sounds like Steve Martin?

      Thanks. That's sort of an odd one, then I got to thinking...do you think JiB's drive through business has decreased given high gas prices?

        Oh my...I just might have to get high this Thursday to take advantage!

          I wonder if they will open a Jack in the Box here in Ocean City NJ by Thursday.

              Does your receipt have to be from 6/26, or can it be from a day or two before?

                Getting gas BEFORE you eat at Jack-in-the-crack? What a novel concept!

                  Click on the link ML8000 provided and it just says any gas receipt.

                  No matter what I order here, I always get the two tacos. Even if I am not eating them with my meal.

                  Sadly, I know they taste good cold.

                  Finally Jack-In-The-Box has found the correct price to sell their tacos for. It took them awhile but I always had trust in them to get it right.

                    Has anyone gone to take advantage of this today? I'm wondering if it is a madhouse or not.

                      I thought about it but I take BART on a daily basis...so driving to get a couple of .99 cent tacos doesn't make much sense. If I was passing by however, I'd stop.

                      I guess no one responded to my post because they're all out standing in line at JIB, lol..

                        A line of 7 cars outside and nobody inside. 1 pm.

                        Wonder why fuel prices are so high? Econ 101: Supply and demand.

                          Nope! Didn't go. I mean after all, you can get 2 for 99 cents as it is. It isn't that great a deal. Jack, if you're listening, pass out a free burger, preferably a sourdough jack, and then I'll come!
