Taco Bell doesn’t have nationwide senior discount policies listed on their official website, but some online resources (this one, for example) claim that seniors aged 65+ get 5% off their purchases, plus a free beverage.
Since this information doesn’t come straight from Taco Bell, you should call your local Taco Bell ahead to find out if they really have such deals, if you want to know for sure.
Next, whether or not your Taco Bell has senior discounts, we suggest that you have a look at the restaurant’s offers and deals web page. Here, you’ll find the freshest news on running promotions and discounts. Taco Bell frequently changes their offers up, so make sure to keep an eye on this page to hopefully be able to save money.
Have a look at the value menu as well – this is a wallet-friendly menu with meals priced at just $1.
Finally, consider enrolling in the Taco Bell Rewards program. Members get 10 points for every dollar spent (excluding taxes and discounts) with Drive-Thru or In-Store/In-Restaurant purchases. Once you collect 250 points, you will get rewards in the form of discounts and special offers.
You may complete Challenges as well to earn extra points and rewards. You can view available Challenges on your Rewards Dashboard.
If you hit 2,000 points in a calendar year, Taco Bell will also promote you to the so-called “Fire Tier” where you will earn 11 points per dollar and get access to more rewards. “Fire Tier” lasts until the end of the year and one full year after that.
Rewards members additionally get access to exclusive offers, a free Doritos Locos Tacos for signing up, and a free Mountain Dew Baja Blast Freeze on your birthday!
