Get Your Holiday Turkey Free

Created: On November 30, 2008 @ 4:57 pm In

I haven’t paid for a Thanksgiving turkey in years. That’s because I always take advantage of my supermarket’s holiday promotion where you earn a free turkey when you purchase a certain amount of groceries in the weeks leading up to the holiday. This year I snagged a 21 pound turkey that would have cost $35 without the store promotion. 

Instead of the turkey we could have chosen a free ham, roasting chicken, or frozen lasagna. Many supermarkets offer free turkey promotions so it makes sense to read the store circulars that come in the mail or your local newspaper. Even if you missed out on a free turkey this holiday, keep checking with your local supermarkets because some run similar promotions for the Christmas or Easter holidays. 

Other places that offer free turkeys during the holidays include community groups, churches, and food pantries. Other organizations may also offer free turkeys and other food items for the holidays so check to see what’s available in your area. 

Even if you have to pay for a turkey this year, chances are you’ll still score a good deal. Many stores have lowered the price of turkeys to stay competitive this holiday. A [1] Patriot Ledger article reported that stores in Quincy, Mass., were offering turkeys as cheap as 47 cents a pound.
