ShopRite Lowers Spending Threshold to Get Free Turkeys

It used to be $400. But because of Hurricane Sandy, all you have to do is spend $300 by November 22, and you can get a free turkey for your holiday table.

It's all to help people impacted by Hurricane Sandy.

ShopRite has lowered the amount shoppers must spend in order to qualify for a free Thanksgiving turkey, according to Supermarket News

The traditional ShopRite turkeyfest happens once a year. During that time, shoppers who spend a certain amount of money can pick up a free turkey or ham for their Thanksgiving table.

This year, the supermarket recognizes that people who were affected by the recent hurricane probably didn't have food shopping on their minds - especially with areas of central New Jersey not having electricity, in some cases, for more than a week.

The free turkey threshold was $400. ShopRite has changed that to $300, Supermarket News reports.

The promotion, which runs from October 14 to November 22, requires Price Plus members to spend a qualifying amount to receive the free bird, or to take their pick from ham, turkey breast, kosher chicken, or other items. 

Shoppers can pick their free bird up through November 22.

While I thank & applaud ShopRite for doing this, I would like to know why ShopRite raised the required shopping amount to $400 in the first place. Did they really think regular customers would not notice? Our income has not increased, but supermarket prices have. I am not uneducated in the world of business, & in another life, I worked for ShopRite, as a cashier, & later in the office. Your article comes in the same timeframe as my e-mail to ShopRite asking why they decided to raise the spent monies to qualify. I certainly hope someone other than me are questioning their reasoning.
