If a turkey is a Thanksgiving must-have in your household and you want to save money on one this year, the popular reward points program that allows Giant Food Stores customers to earn free birds begins again Friday, Oct. 11.
The company announced that shoppers will begin earning points toward a free turkey certificate by using their BonusCard each time they visit a Giant store.
“New this year, customers enrolled in Giant Choice Rewards can earn their free turkey by redeeming points online and earn free side dishes, desserts and more to round out their holiday meal by using the Giant or Martin’s app,” a news release said.
“Thanksgiving is all about bringing family and friends together to share a special meal, but with the hustle and bustle of everyday life, we know that’s easier said than done,” said John Ruane, chief merchandising officer, Giant Food Stores. “At GIANT, we want to do everything we can to make Thanksgiving easier for our customers. Through our brand-new GIANT Choice Rewards program, we’re giving our customers a chance to redeem points for free sides and desserts, as well as a free turkey, saving them both time and money, so they can focus on the people gathered around their table instead of what’s being served on it.”
Customers who earn 400 rewards points from Friday, Oct. 11 through Thursday, Nov. 28 can choose to redeem their points for a free turkey certificate. Paper reward certificates can be redeemed from Friday, Nov. 15 through Thursday, Nov. 28 at any Giant or Martin’s Food Market location. Digital reward certificates can be redeemed during the same period online or in-store. Customers can also choose to substitute their free turkey certificate for a free family size lasagna or Tofurkey, or use it to receive $1 off per pound of the turkey brand of their choice, according to the announcement.
“The more engaged customers are with Giant’s digital platforms, the greater the rewards they have an opportunity to earn,” the news release said. “Customers who are digitally engaged in the Giant Choice Rewards program through the Giant or Martin’s app can also redeem points on up to 14 free items including King’s Hawaiian rolls, Ocean Spray cranberry sauce, Russet potatoes, Giant brand ice cream and Giant’s fresh-baked holiday pies.”
Customers will find a current tally of rewards points at the bottom of their receipt or via the app. Customers are encouraged to check their store for specific program details and eligibility or contact the company’s Customer Support at 1-888-814-4268.
In addition, customers also have the opportunity to help their neighbors by donating their free turkey certificate to a local regional food bank at any Giant store or online.
Locally there is a Giant Food Store at 1880 Leithsville Road in Lower Saucon Township. For other store locations, visit GiantFoodStores.com.
