Butterball It to Find Savings

Is turkey on your mind yet?

Me too!

‘Tis the season, right?!

But before we know it, Thanksgiving will be here! Yikes. Time flies when you’re having fun…or testing and retesting pumpkin pie recipes. Say wha??

I don’t want to talk about it.

So let’s pretend that these next few paragraphs are a friendly reminder to make plans now to ensure Thanksgiving is a little bit easier this time around. Thanksgiving easy? Yes! It can be done! Here are a few pointers:

 

Coupon the heck out of Thanksgiving! Ok, I’m not talking about extreme couponing to get 47 bottles of mouthwash. Here’s what I am talking about: Butterball has joined forces with Betty Crocker, Green Giant and Pillsbury to offer coupons and rebates! Purchase any three of the following – Betty Crocker HomeStyle Stuffing, Betty Crocker Potatoes, Green Giant Canned Vegetables and Pillsbury Crescent Rolls and Piece Crust and you can save $3 off your Butterball Whole Turkey purchase. Additionally, Butterball Whole Turkeys have a $1 off Pillsbury Crescent Rolls on pack.

Reynolds and Hefty are also participating companies! You can find offers in-store or look for savings on November 16. Buy a Butterball Whole Turkey and mail in the proof of purchase for $5 worth of coupons good off any future Butterball purchase.

Also, Corona is going to be offering $3 instant coupons and $6 mail-in rebates when you buy Corona with a whole Butterball Turkey. Hot dog!

If wine is more of your thing, impress your guests with Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi. They also will have $3 instant savings for any Butterball Whole Turkey or Turkey Breast. Even cooler than that? Text FEAST to 47474 for your chance to win a $2,500 dream kitchen stove or perfect holiday feast kit.

 

Look for deals! A few weeks before Thanksgiving, be sure to keep an eye out for sales. Comparison shop with your grocery store fliers and pick up the items that can last a few weeks in the pantry like French fried onions, pureed pumpkin, baking supplies, condensed soups, chicken stock, etc.

Also, if you’re into the whole deep fried turkey situation, keep your eyes peeled for a good price on Masterbuilt Butterball Indoor Electric Turkey Fryers. You’re bound to find a great deal on it a few weeks prior versus the day before! And, bonus! You’ll get a $5 mail-in rebate when you buy a Butterball Turkey with the fryer. {Didn’t you see that coming?!}

 

Buy in bulk! Sometimes this is a cheaper option overall than buying food items one by one, especially if you’re feeding a crowd over the holidays. You’ll have to price check to get the best deals, but typically if you do the math, buying items in bulk will save you money. Think canned items, drinks, and your produce. Heck, you might even want to buy a HUGE turkey just so you can have leftovers for your freezer!

And speaking of leftovers, here are a couple for the road to get your minds {and tummies!} ready for one of my all-time favorite holidays of the year. 🙂

The first is a delicious stew you can find on Butterball.com—it’s a Moroccan Turkey Stew made with leftover turkey. What a great meal for the weekend after Thanksgiving!

      Deep-frying a turkey has become more and more popular in recent years. This method turns out an irresistibly tender and delicious turkey, and is a great alternative to traditional cooking methods. It is especially important, however, to follow instructions carefully and take precautions. We have a full list of tips and safety guidelines on Butterball.com here: http://bit.ly/1HlPVDa.
