If you’ve been intrigued by the explosion of plant-based meat alternatives hitting restaurants and grocery stores, but haven’t forked over the cash to try them (they’re kinda expensive), tomorrow’s your chance to get a bite for free. Beyond Meat announces that on May 3, participating fast-food restaurants and grocery stores will offer free or discounted Beyond Meat products as part of the first-ever “Beyond Day.” For what it’s worth, Beyond Day sounds like the final installment in a sci-fi trilogy.

The offer means free Beyond Tacos at Del Taco; free Beyond Burgers at Bareburger, Epic Burger, Veggie Grill, and Carl’s Jr.; and a coupon for $3 off any Beyond Meat product at grocery stores. In some cases, you’ll have to take specific actions—saying “Happy Birthday, Beyond” or ordering via an app—and we’ve outlined those below. For grocery-store purchases, download this coupon and present it at check-out. Who doesn’t like free stuff?
