If you enjoy getting a free Thanksgiving turkey with reward points you accumulate while grocery shopping, you will have another place to do that this year: Giant Food Stores.
The company–which has a store on Rt. 412 in Lower Saucon Township–announced Monday that “the birds are back” and beginning Friday, Oct. 12, customers can begin earning extra rewards points toward a free turkey certificate when they shop using their BonusCard.
“Over the past few years, our customers have told us how much they’ve missed our free turkey program, and truth be told, so did we,” said John Ruane, senior vice president of merchandising at GIANT/MARTIN’S, in a news release. “Thanksgiving is all about bringing families together around the table to share a special meal and give thanks. GIANT has a lot to be thankful for this year as we continue to celebrate our 95th anniversary, and we couldn’t think of a better way to show our gratitude than by bringing this beloved program back and helping customers save even more on their Thanksgiving meal.”
Customers can earn rewards points for a free turkey certificate from Friday, Oct. 12 through Thursday, Nov. 22.
The certificates can be redeemed from Nov. 9 through Nov. 22 at any GIANT or MARTIN’S location.
Customers can also chose to substitute their free turkey certificate for $1 off per pound of the turkey brand of their choice (up to 20 pounds).
A current tally of a customer’s extra rewards points can be found at the bottom of their receipt when they shop using a BonusCard. Customers are encouraged to check their store for specific program details and eligibility or visit giantfoodstores.com or martinsfoods.com.
In lieu of earning a turkey for themselves, customers also have the opportunity to help their neighbors by donating their free turkey certificate to a local regional food bank at any GIANT or MARTIN’S store.
The original Giant free turkey program was discontinued in 2016 after 16 years, according to an article published on PennLive.com.
The news release didn’t specify how many rewards points one must earn in order to qualify for a free turkey reward, however before the program was discontinued one needed to earn 400 points.
