I vehemently disagree; I think it's a horrible deal. If I wanted fast food burritos, I could get 12 of them over at Del Taco for about the same price and have leftovers. Or I could stop by the local Mexican joint and get a burrito the size of my head with tortillas, beans, sour cream, corn bread, a drink and all of the free chips I can handle. Best of all: the beef isn't mixed with oats and cocoa.

Obviously size is a matter of perspective and opinion, but I personally think the portions at Taco Bell are tiny. And it's worth mentioning that I despise lettuce, tomato, and guacamole, which cuts the size of each item in half. $5 is a good price for something that fills you up, but that's not going to happen for me at Taco Bell. Now, if these used the new Doritos taco shells, I'd be a little more forgiving because those are damn tasty (I feel dirty saying that about a Taco Bell product but it's true).

I haven't ate at taco bell since my college days 6 years ago. Not sure if I want to subject myself to that again. Thanks for the post, but not so sure if I would do this.

I didn't say that those were vegetables. I made a blanket statement. The emoticon pertained to the part of your silly rant that I quoted. :bouncy:

Yeah, "the box" isn't a good deal if you don't eat anything but meat, beans, cheese, and lettuce like me. But I will still try to enter the contest

Probably going to get a few of these $5 boxes during this promotion... I'm feeling nauseous (and diarrhetic) just thinking about it.

That is all.

"OR, from 3/2/12 through 3/11/12 (ONLY), visit http://unlock.tacobell.com for a free Code"

That is from the official rules, so if you can wait you can maybe save yourself some indigestion!

I just realized something. CAGs can help each other win the challenge part since it's based entirely on votes.

There's 3 winners a week for the length of the contest. If we all vote for one another and in a sense "take turns" with wins, no disappointments :D

Hmm, the AR game needs a picture of the $5 box to play ... I wonder if it needs a physical box with some kind of code ... ... or just a box positioned correctly ... (get to work cags ;) )

Just entered the picture contest. Think the easiest day to win would be today as it's getting rolled out today? Also, how would one go about buying extra boxes? I see in one of the photo some dude has like 10 boxes there.. did he just buy 10 $5 boxes or do some let it slide at a discounted rate?

Argh my stomach is gonna hate me.

Are there any ways to get free multi-use codes like the ones from Subway's Uncharted 3 contest?

Here's a way to get 1 free code if you want
For one (1) free Code by mail, while supplies last, send a self-addressed, stamped business size (#10) envelope to: Taco Bell Big Box Request, P. O. Box 9319, Medford, NY 11763-9319, postmarked by 3/1/12 and received by 3/5/12. Limit one (1) free Code per request per stamped outer envelope. VT residents may omit stamp.

I'm gonna be mad if I start eating this crap and I buy the box one day and they don't give me the box with the code on it. I've had that happen at other places before.

I decided to play off the male vote and posted an old picture of myself with some hot chicks with the tag line "I would give you free women"

So feel free to vote for me if it gets approved :P

In the android marketplace you need to type in Taco Bell Mobile for it to come up in search, otherwise you get some third party junk, at least that happened on my Galaxy S2.

It should be the case that entering in the middle of the night will yield a slightly higher chance to win. Whenever one of the random predetermined times hits, whoever enters a code on or after will win. There is more likely to be a larger window when the US of A is mostly asleep. I'm assuming thats how it works at least.
