    Apple's latest Apple Pay promotion includes $1 tacos from Taco Bell when using Apple Pay to pay for an order in the Taco Bell app in the United States.

    The new offer, which was highlighted in Apple Pay promotional emails sent out this afternoon, instructs users to redeem the discount through the Offers tab within the Taco Bell app.

    Taco Bell is offering $1 tacos through May 29, with a total discount cap of $10. The $1 taco deal is valid for any crunchy or soft-seasoned beef taco per person. Beans can be swapped for beef, but no other product or ingredient upgrades can be added.

    $1 tacos are only available through the Taco Bell app for pay ahead pickup orders when Apple Pay is used as the payment method. Delivery orders don't count, and the offer is redeemable one time and can't be combined with other offers.

    The Apple Pay email also promotes other food apps that let you make orders ahead of time and use Apple Pay, including Jimmy John's Sandwiches, Panera Bread, and Ritual.

    I love the relationship between the nutrition and cost of food at Taco Bell.

    As the cost goes down so does the nutrition!

    TACO BELL: Come try our new Loaded Nacho Taco! It's like our normal indigestion-causing soft taco that you already love... but we then add deep-fried tortilla chips that have been died red by the same stuff we use to paint the curbs outside... then in addition the shredded cheese already on it, we add generous amount of nacho cheese that was freshly scooped out of a dented tin can stored on a shelf with spiders. Only $1.

    I mean... it's delicious, but still...

    So bad but so so good. Every time I used to eat there I would have to buy a gallon of water to wash it down.

    BTW, rumor has it that NFC will be enabled in-store next month. Although I will say that online ordering (as a general concept) is convenient, especially when the food is ready right when you get there.

    Some things you just can't find on the interwebz . . . we are now all doomed to a history that will repeat itself, if we don't do a better job of pointing you in the right direction.

    Here's a HINT: "59, 79, 99 cent MENU"

    Avoiding the line when ordering is good.

    Avoiding the line on the way to the bathroom afterwards is better.

    So with Apple Pay you have to pay a dollar for a 50cent taco?

    $1 taco's, $100,000 heart attacks. Your mileage may vary. :)

    This makes me feel old. I remember sneaking out of high school with my friends to eat at Taco Bell and I think the crunchy tacos were $0.49 and the soft tacos were $0.59. They might have been $0.10 higher, can’t remember.

    This also makes me really hungry. Taco Bell is clearly garbage but also my guilty pleasure. IDK why, it makes no sense. And yes, I’ve had good tacos. I will go out of my way for good tacos. But sometimes you just gotta be a little trashy, especially late at night when nothing is open. I’m so tempted to get some right now but I’ve been on a diet for the past month and hitting it hard with my Apple Watch and have lost over 15lbs so I can’t ruin it now! This sounds so good though.

    Internet in general is full of the self righteous and especially here.
    Half the top posts probably eat there all the time but claim not to on the internet.

    Making fun? Your body can only process that heavy toxic load from the age of 18 to 35. It’s not an issue of snobbery at all... it’s a matter of caring about what you put in your body. It is snobbish not to smoke meth? A friend of mine used to audit a cattle farm when he worked for Deloitte and he got a look at the type of beef they sold to Taco Bell. Actually, I’m not sure if it was legally beef, but that definition is pretty wide.

    Anyway, it’s not just the meat they cut every possible corner on, what’s surely more dangerous also the chemicals they put in their ingredients to make it last in a hot car for 3 days and not “poison” you. Or the crazy chemical cocktail that’s designed to remind you of real beef and real cheese.

    I remember eating Taco Bell when I was young, dumb and drunk on the weekends. I’m not turning my nose up at those people. But, you get a little older and you just *can’t* eat that stuff if you have any desire to live hopefully free of disease to a reasonable age.

    I may be showing my age, but it doesn't seem like too long ago that a regular Taco Bell taco was under $1 as the regular price. I remember $0.79 tacos from not too long ago, and $0.59 tacos from when I was a teenager. What is the standard price now?
