Dbacks Win ~ Deals at Taco Bell, Papa John’s, Circle K and Jack in the Box

The Dbacks beat the Dodgers at home 10-6 and scored a home run.  Get all these deals today, Tuesday.


Taco Bell is doing the same promotion they’ve done for several years, but it’s 5 runs instead of 6!

For Arizona residents, participating Taco Bells will give you three free tacos when you purchase a large drink, if the Diamondbacks score at least 5 runs.  (A win or loss doesn’t matter — well, for the tacos!)  :)  The deal is only good the day after the game from 4pm – 6pm.   No coupon is necessary.  Large drinks were $1.69 at my Taco Bell last year.

Here’s a link to their schedule.  It also lists the scores of past games, so you can see if they scored 5 runs!

Last year, you could pay 30¢ more for a limeade of freeze, 30¢ extra for each Dorito taco you wanted, or get all three “D-backs style” (sour cream & tomatoes) for $1.  I’m guessing it will be the same this year.

**  I’ve heard of rare Taco Bells in Arizona that don’t participate.  It’s safest to call yours before going, just to make sure.



“All season long, the day after every Dbacks win you get 50% off your regular menu price online order. They won last night, so you get 50% off your total online order today!”

Order online at Papa John’s and use the code DBACKS50

Remember it’s after EVERY win, all season long! (home or away games)

Here’s some other codes in case you need to order another day:

Here are other codes I try, when I want to get 50% off my online orders . .

ASU50 (after different sports teams win)
COYOTES (when in season)
CARDINALS (when in season)
AZ350810 (Buckeye, Surprise, Avondale, Estrella Mountain stores only, thru 7/31; Thanks, Rachel!)

If those fail and you don’t have points saved:
SAVE25 (for 25% off)


If any Dbacks player “Jacks” a home run out of the park, fans can go Jack in the Box the next day to receive a free Jumbo Jack with the purchase of a large drink.  The location I called charges $2.39 for a large drink.

If you’re not a Dbacks follower, you can do a quick internet search for “dbacks score” and you’ll see that you can click for highlights or a recap.  They should tell you if there was a home run, in their summary.


Circle K has a Strike Out Meter for the Dbacks. During regular season home games, check their page here for the strike out total of the game. The more strike outs, the better the deal!

You need to download their app to your phone to get this deal. Go here and in the lower right corner, you’ll see the icons to download the Circle K Arizona App. The deal will automatically get sent to your smartphone “as a deal” in the app. Follow the app instructions on claiming the deal. You’ll just need to show the offer on your phone to the cashier.

Today’s deal is any size fountain drink free.  No other purchase is needed.



The AZ Diamondbacks has a great promotion for kids.  No Chew Crew membership is free to children 15 and younger who pledge awareness of the harmful effects of spit tobacco and “Say NO to spit tobacco.” Parents/guardians must be 18 years or older to register a child for the No Chew Crew.

Kids who take the pledge can get in free to select games.  You can read all about it here.

And when you are at one of the games, register to be part of the Dbacks Kids Club.  All children ages 3-15 are eligible, with a parent’s permission, to sign up for the club at the D-backs Kid’s Club HQ located in the Phoenix Children’s Hospital Sandlot, near section 332.

Kids can enjoy a free lemonade when they show their D-backs Kid’s Club card at Raising Cane’s, offer valid at all participating stores and with purchase.

You can earn other prizes too! Members simply scan their membership card at specially marked fan kiosks throughout Chase Field and receive a slip redeemable at the Kid’s Club HQ for a prize. Members earn a free prize for each of the first 20 games attended and a bonus prize at game 25 and 30! Kids must be presented to redeem prize.

You can read all about Raising Canes and the Dbacks Kids Club here.

“Thanks to the Every Kid in a Park initiative, all 4th graders and their families will be invited to visit our country’s outdoor treasures and historic sites anytime they like during the 2015-2016 school year…free of charge!”

Go here to sign up and get notifications on when you can request your free pass.

It just so happens, that I’ll have a fourth grader next year!  SWEET!  Maybe we will finally get to the Grand Canyon!

Verify Email Subscriptions! ~ Great Way to Follow (Also Facebook, Twitter, or RSS Feed)


If you don’t get the Bargain Believer emails, you may want them.  You will receive one email between 3pm & 5pm, usually around 3pm.  (No, I’m not sitting at my computer at that exact time every single day.  They’re automatic and I never know the precise time they’ll go out.) :)

They will show you everything that was listed since the previous email went out.  It’s an easy way to glance over what was posted that day and make sure you didn’t miss anything.   Fair warning:  You’ll be bugged everyday around 3pm, but you can unsubscribe at anytime.   :)

If you’ve ever signed up to get the daily emails and you’re not getting them, you probably didn’t verify your email.  There is a significant number of people on the email list that haven’t.  Sign up again at this link and make sure to go to your email and click on the link.  It should come right away.

Of course, you can also follow other ways . . . Facebook gets a little extra love sometimes, with quickly disappearing deals, reminders, and just more interaction.  If you use Facebook, it’s another great way to follow.

Make sure “follow” is checked after you have “liked” Bargain Believer (beside the “liked” button).  Even better, hover over the “liked” button and check “get notifications.”  When you’re on Facebook, a little box will pop up when we post something and it will also be listed under your “notifications” tab on top.  As always, the best way to not miss anything is to comment or “like” posts on the Bargain Believer Facebook page …. often!
