12 Stores Giving Away Free Turkeys for Thanksgiving in 2022

| Free Turkeys | Store Prices on Turkey |

A well-cooked, perfectly seasoned turkey is the centerpiece of most Thanksgiving Day tables each year on the fourth Thursday in November. With most stores staying closed once again on Thanksgiving Day, your guests might spend more time grazing throughout the kitchen, and that means keeping everything stocked and ready. Once you add up all the extra sides and fixins’ that go with it, your grocery budget is likely blown for the next month.

According to the USDA’s National Turkey Retail Report, whole turkeys will cost roughly $1.99 a pound. This is significantly more compared to this time last year when turkey cost approximately $1.23 per pound. So, finding ways to save money and feed your family a feast made for a king is a top priority heading into the holiday season.

Fortunately, plenty of retailers are giving away free turkeys in November to members of their loyalty rewards programs or customers meeting the minimum spending threshold. Most of these programs are free to join (except for warehouses and subscription plans) — and to get a free turkey, you just have to cash in those loyalty points or spend the minimum amount.
