How to get your turkey for free this holiday season

(NC) – Whether it's a traditional family recipe for the best festive dessert, a signature drink, a favorite appetizer or the main dish, getting together to enjoy a meal is part of the festive season many people look forward to the most.

In fact a recent survey conducted by the team at President's Choice revealed that 89 per cent of Canadians would rather share a meal with friends than exchange gifts during the holidays. It seems the way to our hearts truly is through our stomachs.

But as much as people love getting together over the holidays, for hosts and hostesses this time of year can also be stressful and put a strain on finances. Canadians say hosting a holiday dinner/party is about as stressful as meeting in-laws and 19% of Canadians would rather work overtime than host a holiday dinner/party!

It's time to take some of the stress out of this wonderful season. There are many ways to make holiday entertaining easier than ever and help you keep your budget on track such as writing out a list and including what you want to spend for everything from gifts to food and décor, as well as taking advantage of sales, coupons or in-store loyalty programs when available.

Just in time for the holidays, Loblaw Companies Limited has launched their PC Plus rewards program across Canada. It lets you earn points to use towards dollars off your grocery bill by sending you offers on the items you buy most – and at this time of year with so much spending, it's great to know there are new ways to earn points and redeem for savings later on. Each 1,000 points is worth $1 and since some offers give you anywhere from 500 – 1,000 points on grocery items it doesn't take long for those points to add up. Once you hit 20,000 points you can either redeem them for $20 off of your grocery bill, or keep saving up to pay for that holiday turkey!

For everything you need this holiday season or to sign up for the PC Plus program, visit your local Loblaws, Real Canadian Superstore, Atlantic Superstore or Zehrs Markets.
