Shopping for a Thanksgiving meal for your family can definitely add up, once you factor in the turkey, all the sides, and of course drinks and dessert. But Ibotta, a cash-back shopping app, and Walmart are teaming up to help you score a complete Thanksgiving dinner for free.

The app and mega-chain are offering nine items that add up to a complete Turkey Day meal — estimated to serve five people, depending on your family’s appetite — in a cash-back scenario that ultimately renders them free.

The items: a Butterball Turkey Breast Roast ($9.98 cash back), Great Value Stuffing Mix ($0.82 cash back), Campbell’s Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup ($0.98), Great Value Green Beans ($1.34 cash back), McCormick Gravy ($1.12 cash back), Idahoan Mashed Potatoes ($1.88 cash back), Great Value Cranberry Sauce ($0.98 cash back), French’s Crispy Fried Onions ($1.92 cash back) and a 2-liter bottle of Coca-Cola ($1.25 cash back — and nope, sorry, not Diet Coke, the fine print stipulates).

That’s a savings of … well, don’t make me do the math … but the point is it ends up being free after you download the Ibotta app on your phone or a browser extension on your computer, add all nine items to your list at Walmart, and use the app when you either shop in-store or online at Walmart.

No, you don’t need to buy ALL the items to get them for free; you can totally pick and choose. And no, you can’t get the free-for-you deal on more than one of each item. But yes, you can order a whole Butterball turkey and just take the $9.98 cash back to defray the cost. (So … leftovers.)

The offer is available in November only while supplies last though. So if you want to add a “free Thanksgiving meal” to your list of things to be thankful for this year, you’ll want to move fast to snag one.
