Free turkey at supermarket

Does your store give free turkey if you spend $300 within a certain time frame ? I forget the dates but it is usually before the holiday, Thanksgiving and Christmas. I usually get the turkey close to Thanksgiving since I don't have that much room in my freezer.
The store is also giving $25 gas card if you spend $75 worth of certain brands of food.

My store had a coupon last week, buy a ham ($30 or so) and get a free turkey....

That makes me happy.... I was down to only 1 turkey in the big freezer, I can go back to hoarding them now!!!

We have to spend $35 a week for so many weeks (something like 5-7 weeks, not sure) to get a free turkey. I did that once, but it wasn't worth it because I ended up buying a few things I didn't really need right then, just to spend the $35 minimum. Turkeys are pretty cheap at Thanksgiving time, so I don't want to buy stuff just to get a turkey. Our store does something similar for Christmas, Easter, and 4th of July.

LOL I do the same thing with "seasonal" meats (turkey, corned beef). I like to stock up when they are on sale.

I can't say if they do or don't. I live alone, so I know I wouldn't be elible based on mantatory dollars spent.

For years our supermarket gave out hams or turkey if u spent a certain amount in a given time frame. Finally I wrote a very nice letter to the supermarket letting them know that I was a good, long term customer, who travelled about 15 miles just to shop at their market ( passing many others on the way), and that I spend much more than what is required, but since im a vegetarian, I cant benefit from the reward.

Well, in return, they responded with a very nice letter, a $10 gift card to their store, and have now included a vegetarian lasagna ( in addition to the ham, or turkey) as one of the choices. I thought that was very nice of them and they did the right thing ( until they accused my wife of steeling (long story), and now we dont shop there anymore)

Yep.

450 Bucks spent will get you either a 15 buck free turkey or 15 bucks off on your groceries.

Nice deal, but that grocery store is bit more pricey on some items.
