Find a turkey coupon booklet at stateside commissaries, while supplies last!

Once again, we are teaming up with our industry partners to offer the turkey coupon booklet to help you save money on the purchase of a fresh or frozen turkey when you purchase participating products! If you purchased all of the participating products for your holiday meal and used all of the coupons in this booklet, you could save more than $21, which means your turkey could even be free!

In fact, commissaries in the United States (including Alaska and Hawaii) began offering a total of 200,000 of these booklets for distribution on November 1. These booklets will only be available while supplies last, so if you haven’t gotten yours yet, check Your Commissary as soon as possible!

Although the booklets won’t be distributed at commissaries outside of the U.S. this year, they may be redeemed at any commissary worldwide, so if you happen to be traveling for the holidays, you can still use yours! (We are asking that you help us limit these booklets to one per customer, so as many customers as possible can have one!)

We are also offering frozen turkeys for 48¢ per pound at commissaries worldwide through December 31, so you can use these coupon booklets to save more on this already low price! Limited weekly quantities of these frozen turkeys will be available, but available quantities are expected to increase as Thanksgiving approaches. Please check with Your Commissary to learn which brands are included in this promotion at your location!

Extend Your Commissary Holiday Shopping Experience!

Our industry partners participating in this coupon booklet have launched a special website connected to the booklet to extend your holiday shopping experience! The website offers delicious holiday recipes, plus the opportunity to enter for your chance to win a $25 commissary gift card during the month of November 2019!

Turkey Coupon Booklet FAQs

How does this turkey coupon booklet program work? The coupons state that when you purchase a certain item or combination of items, you receive a certain amount towards the purchase of any whole fresh or frozen turkey. (For example, one coupon might allow you to save $1.00 on the purchase of a turkey with the purchase of 3 packages of dinner rolls.) These coupons add up to more than $21.00 in savings on the purchase of a turkey! They can only be combined with other coupons in this booklet, and they are only valid through December 31, 2019.

When will the turkey coupon booklets be distributed at my commissary? Coupon booklets are expected to be available in stateside commissaries, starting November 1. Many of our commissaries will have these booklets at mass displays of items and/or point of purchase displays for customers to pick up; please remember that these booklets are limited to one per customer.

Where can the coupon booklets be redeemed? These booklets can be redeemed at any commissary worldwide during the months of November and December 2019.

I thought coupon “stacking” wasn’t allowed in commissaries? Generally speaking, commissaries may only accept one coupon per purchase. However, our policy does allow multiple coupons to be used on the purchase of a single item when a manufacturer specifically authorizes it for a limited period of time and provides the specific combination of coupons for customers to use in the store, as in the case of this promotion. Customers may not combine their own coupons with those provided in the booklet, as this would increase the coupon savings above the level authorized by manufacturers.

My store ran out of coupon booklets. Can I still participate? Unfortunately, quantities of the coupon booklets are limited, so commissaries will not receive additional shipments of booklets.

My turkey cost less than the value of the coupons I redeemed; can I get cash back or use the difference towards the purchase of other items? Yes; under our coupon policy, unless a coupon’s terms specifically prohibit cash back or require that the coupon be adjusted to the value of the item, customers may use the remaining coupon value towards the purchase of other items or receive cash back.

My commissary ran out of turkeys and/or the items listed on the coupons. Can I still use these coupons? Unfortunately, you can’t, because these coupons require the purchase of a whole fresh or frozen turkey and the other item(s) listed in order to be valid. However, commissaries are making every effort to ensure that sufficient quantities are ordered to satisfy customer demand.

May I hold on to my coupon booklet and use any remaining coupons on a future visit? Yes, you may; however, using the remaining coupons separately would require the purchase of an additional turkey for each separate transaction. Also, please remember that the coupons will expire on December 31, 2019.
