I cannot remember ever getting FREE turkeys except fromhubby'semployers all the years our kids were growing p & I prepard the traditional dinner at home, even if it was just the 4 of us. One year, after they hadgone on heir a; hubby got aBIG 22# turkey from his employer & gae i t to a co-worker who had a large family coming for dinner & had expressed concerns asto if his tukey would be big nough.

Hi Ann,Our chain grocery stores used to start in September,you had to spend $ 500.00 by the first week in November and you would qualify for a 12-15 # turkey If you Spent $800.00 + You would qualify for a larger turkey.Don't remember the exact amounts but that gives you some idea.They don't do it anymore.It's funny though I worked in the grocery store and we never got a free turkey.I drove the shuttle buses at the Airport for awhile and got two free turkeys one from the union and the other from my employer.The absolute best turkey we had was 32# and it was a fresh Amish turkey.I had to go back to the store and pay for it.The cashier was so excited by it's size she never rung it out.I paid my bill, i did all the rest of the shopping there at this time and I though it was a low bill for all that I had gotten. I always check my receipt when I get home don't want to get cheated and I don't want to cheat the store either.
