Walmart announces free Thanksgiving dinner for everyone

Through an exclusive promotion with Walmart, leading mobile rewards platform Ibotta, Campbell's, Butterball and Coca-Cola have teamed up to launch the Free Thanksgiving Dinner program in an effort to feed millions of American families this Thanksgiving.

Ibotta’s 2020 Thanksgiving Survey found that more than one-third of Americans will spend less on Thanksgiving this year due to tightened budgets. But despite the budget constraints, enthusiasm for Thanksgiving dinner remains sky-high. 

The Free Thanksgiving Dinner program hopes to make a difficult holiday season more rewarding for families everywhere by giving them a delicious meal without the financial burden.


 

The Walmart-exclusive items included in the Free Thanksgiving Dinner program are:

  • Campbell’s condensed cream of mushroom soup (10.5-ounce can)
  • 2-liter bottle of Coke
  • All varieties of Butterball 3-pound turkey roast or $9.98 cash back on all Butterball whole turkeys
  • McCormick turkey gravy seasoning packet (0.87-ounce package)
  • French’s crispy onions (2.8-ounce package)
  • Idahoan instant mashed potatoes (8-ounce package)
  • Great Value stuffing (6-ounce package)
  • Great Value cranberry sauce (14-ounce can)
  • Great Value frozen green beans (12-ounce bag)

Simply download the Ibotta app or download Ibotta's web browser extension, click on the Free Thanksgiving Dinner offer and shop for your Thanksgiving items at any Walmart or at Walmart.com. Once purchased, scan your receipt into the Ibotta or link your Walmart Grocery account to verify the purchases, and you'll earn cashback for the entire purchase (approx. $20.27).

“Walmart is proud to team up with Ibotta this Thanksgiving to put meals on the tables of thousands of families across the U.S. at a time when they may need it most,” said Sarah Henry, Walmart Sr. Director, Content & Influencer Marketing.

The third event kicks off online on Wednesday, Nov. 25, with new deals available in stores on Nov. 27, the day after Thanksgiving and the traditional Black Friday. 

Walmart's Black Friday ad lists the new PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles, as well as the Oculus Quest 2, as online only deals, available starting at 7 p.m. Eastern on Nov. 25. The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X are already two of the holiday season's most in-demand gifts. 

Other top online only deals for Walmart's Black Friday sale includes a Vizio 70-inch Class 4K UHD SmartCast TV for $478, Apple AirPods Pro at $169, the Apple Watch Series 3 GPS at $119 and a Nintendo Switch bundle with "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe" download for $299. 

The 12-page ad also features a second wave of deals that kick off online at 12 a.m. Eastern on Nov. 27 and at 5 a.m. in stores on Black Friday. These deals are more focused on home goods, toys, holiday decorations and clothing.
