How Many Tacos Can You Buy With Your $1200 Stimulus Check?
People around the country are beginning to receive their stimulus checks. Everyone has a plan for how they want to use that money...especially taco lovers.
There's a conversation on Reddit right now about how many tacos you can purchase from Taco Bell with your $1200 stimulus check. Now, I wouldn't spend my whole check on tacos, but the taco fan in me was curious. Apparently, I'm not the only one as I saw many of my Facebook friends sharing it too.
Okay, so let's just assume that we are talking about crunchy tacos here. Soft shell tacos cost $.50 more. Here's the breakdown from the user SuitableWould on Reddit:
The cheapest way would be to order a 12 count party pack for 13.99. With an 8% sales tax it comes out to 15.12 for 12 tacos. This nets you 79 Party packs with a $5.52 to spare. You could then buy 3 more tacos at $1.40 after tax.
If you go on Tuesday and score your free taco, you could get 952 Crunchy tacos for $1200.
Here in Indiana, our sales tax is 7%, so the amount of tacos you could get would increase. So let me break it down for you:
You can get a party pack of 12 tacos for $13.99. Add in the 7% sales tax and that comes out to $14.97. This will allow you to get 80 party packs at $1,197.60. That means that you have $2.40 left over, which is enough to get you one more crunchy taco. Adding up all of the tacos, you'd be able to get 961 tacos with $1.02 left over.
Not to mention the free Doritos Locos Taco you can get on a Tuesday.
So there you have it, folks. You can score yourself potentially $962 tacos with your stimulus check. I would be willing to bet that there will be at least one person who will actually do this too!
Seriously though, use this money wisely, as we are in some hard times now.
