Grocery stores offer Thanksgiving discounts and promotions during record inflation
(WFSB) – Record inflation and rising food prices could eat up the Thanksgiving budget for many.
Many grocery stores try to help you out by saving you money for the upcoming vacation.
It’s not just about discounts and lower prices. Some spots even offer free turkeys.
“The prices everywhere are just crazy, everything,” said Doug Turner of East Haven. “For a parent of two, well three, but two who live with me, shopping is outrageous.”
If you shop around Thanksgiving, there are deals there.
Walmart is selling turkeys and trimmings at last year’s prices.
“I think it’s a good idea, to come here, to feed our families,” said Sean McIntosh of Seymour.
“Saving money is a top priority for our customers right now, so this year we’re removing inflation on an entire basket of traditional Thanksgiving items,” Walmart said.
Although their online frozen turkeys are sold out right now, you might want to keep checking back as this offer runs through Christmas.
Aldi is also stepping back with prices from 2019 and discounts of up to 30% on select dinner dishes.
BJ’s Wholesale Club is offering a free Butterball turkey, fresh or frozen, to members who spend $150 or more on a shopping trip.
You must do this by next Thursday, then you will receive your free coupon for a free bird while supplies last.
“We recognize that our members are looking for incredible value, this year more than ever as we head into giving season we are excited to continue our tradition of giving our members a free turkey promotion,” said BJ’s.
Shop Rite’s annual turkey giveaway is also back.
Loyalty club members who spend $400 between Oct. 16 and Thanksgiving can pick up a turkey or other options like roast chicken, frozen lasagna or smoked ham.
“Everything is high right now and I feel sorry for the buyers cooking dinner this year and I’m pretty sure they’re looking for deals and hopefully they can find deals this year,” he said. said Mary Graham of West Haven.
