No Thanksgiving is complete without a turkey, and no respectable turkey is ever cheap—or so we thought. A few stores actually hand out their birds for free...more or less. Here are the deals you should know about.


The supermarket has been doing a "spend $100, get a free turkey!" promotion for years, and 2018 is no different. According to the Krazy Coupon Lady, that $100 grocery trip will get you a free 10-14 pounder. The offer's valid through November 12.


All you've gotta do to get a free small turkey at Fareway is buy $50-worth of meat at their meat counter, which seems like a lot of meat, but...who doesn't want a lot of meat ahead of the heaviest meal of the year? You could also plan ahead, and freeze a ton for Christmas. It's unclear how long this promotional will live for, so be sure to check with your local market before dropping $50 on straight meat.


Looking to have more than just turkey at your table? When you buy a Hormel Cure 81 Ham at a Hy-Vee before November 13, you'll also get a free turkey. It'll range from 10-14 pounds.

Safeway (& Albertsons)

Spend $100 at either chain and get a free 12-20 pound turkey this year. The only difference between the two is that at Safeway, you must be a Club Card member to secure the deal.


Shoprite gives you a steeper hill to climb on your quest to free turkey. According to TODAY, you not only have to spend $300 to get a free turkey this year, but you also have to be a Price Plus member (though that's entirely free). That said, their selection is a lot more expansive too. If you don't want turkey, you can get a free ham, chicken, tofurky, or lasagna. That goes through November 22 as well.


Similarly to Fareway, all you have to do to get a free WinCo turkey is spend $100 in select stores, though it's not specified how big that turkey will be. Last year, this promotion went through the 24th, KCL reports.
