I’m 16 points away from my free Giant Turkey. What do I do?

This girl’s Giant BonusCard is getting a workout.

Guys, I have bad news.

I’m 16 points away from my free turkey at Giant, and I don’t know what to do.

I’m a mere 4-squared away from the 400 points I need on my BonusCard to get that priceless hunk of poultry. The deadline is Nov. 24.

Not that I really know how to cook a turkey anyway. I don’t really care for turkey much, either.

But heck, I love free stuff. This is America — Home of the free and land of the free food.

Plus, I can always take it home and have my mom cook it, right?

So here’s my dilemma: Do I let my big ball of tryptophan-laced goodness slip away? Or do leave work today to buy $16 worth of detergent, shampoo and other crap that doesn’t have an expiration date in order to claim my beast?

  2. Big Joe says:

    Buy one turkey for $16 (along with some trimmings like potato flakes, stuffing, gravy, canned veggies) and get your other turkey for free. Take one or both of the turkeys and trimmings to the York County Food Bank so that another family can have the gift of a Thanksgiving dinner.
