FORT LEE, Va. – The Thanksgiving meal can be challenging even for the most seasoned commissary shopper. There is just so much to do, so much to remember. 

Make this Thanksgiving easy, delicious and affordable thanks to the commissary’s money-saving promotions, tasty, easy-to-prepare recipes on commissaries.com and a helpful holiday cheat sheet. 

“All eyes are on the cook for the Thanksgiving meal, so it can be intimidating – even for an old pro,” said Tracie Russ, the Defense Commissary Agency’s sales director. “But, when you shop your commissary to take advantage of the amazing holiday savings and use the tips and recipes from commissaries.com, your anxiety level and your grocery bill will go down.”

Start your meal planning here with our Thanksgiving game plan.  It features traditional recipes from commissaries.com, a convenient commissary shopping list, a step-by-step meal game plan and recipe options with ingredient lists, for all that left-over holiday turkey.

Then visit your commissary to take advantage of all the special offers and promotional discounts from your favorite holiday brands. Commissaries worldwide are offering limited weekly quantities of select frozen turkeys at 49¢ per pound. And be sure to pick up this year’s Holiday Turkey recipe/coupon booklet and your turkey could be free (see booklet for offer details). Available in commissaries worldwide, this 12-page recipe booklet has coupons towards a fresh or frozen whole turkey purchase (combine all coupons for a savings of more than $35), good through Dec. 31. The coupons provide commissary shoppers significant savings or free turkeys when purchasing holiday meal essentials from top brands.

“We know you want to bring your best to the Thanksgiving table. With the commissary on your side, the best can be easy and affordable as well” Russ said.
