8. Get a free turkey from WinCo when you spend $100.

From Nov. 13 – 24, WinCo will give you a free turkey with a $100 purchase.

All you have to do is buy your normal groceries that total to at least $100 (after discounts and before tax), toss the Jennie-O Grade A frozen turkey in your cart, and head to checkout!

There is a limit of one turkey per family, and the price of the turkey doesn’t count towards the $100 minimum.

 

9. Weis loyalty club members can get a free turkey for 400 points (or $400 spent).

For every $1 spent, Weis Preferred Shoppers get 1 point. Shoppers can redeem those points for free or discounted Thanksgiving foods from Nov. 4 through Nov. 25.

Four hundred points ($400 spent) gets you a free frozen turkey (or other options). Not a big Weis spender? You can also get a turkey for $0.59/lb when you redeem 200 points.

For the complete list of Thanksgiving food you can redeem points for, check out Weis’s Holiday Rewards page.

 

10. Get a free 14-pound turkey with a $50 meat purchase from Fareway.

Shoppers who spend $50 on any fresh meat at Fareway — a supermarket with more than 120 stores across the Midwest — will get a Fareway Basted Young Turkey (up to 14 lbs) for free.

Points can also be used to get $1 off per pound of any other brand of turkey, free Tofurkey roast, a free Kosher certified turkey, or a free Stouffer’s party size lasagna.

 

12. Get a free turkey from Acme after spending $300 by Nov. 25.

Clip the free turkey coupon in the Acme for U (formally known as Just for U) app, then spend at least $300 cumulatively in store through Nov. 25 to claim your free turkey. (That means you could earn the free turkey in one transaction, or many!)

My hack? Have family members who also shop at Acme use your rewards account — by giving the cashier your phone number — so you hit that $300 threshold even quicker. Then invite them to Thanksgiving to enjoy the free turkey you guys earned. Teamwork makes the dream work, amirite?

 

13. Foodtown will give you a free turkey when you earn 400 loyalty points.

Shoppers with a Foodtown Club Card can earn points towards a free Foodtown brand turkey (10 – 20 lbs) from Oct. 29 through Thanksgiving day. You’ll need to spend at least $400 (in one trip or multiple) to redeem your free turkey.
