With less than six weeks to Christmas, it’s time to start thinking about getting your ham and turkey – you don’t want to leave it too late, otherwise you might be having something a little less festive for dinner.
Most shops allow you, and even encourage, you to pre-order your meat so that you won’t be left disappointed, or with a bird that leaves little to be desired.
Not only will it mean you are guaranteed to have all the trimmings for the big day, but it also helps cash-strapped families manage their money a little better.
To ensure their customers don’t miss out this year, Tesco has launched a turkey and ham pre-order service. And whether you’re looking for the ultimate showstopper or a simple basted crown, their 100% Irish and Bord Bia Approved turkey range covers all sizes, budgets and occasions. There are a number of turkey options available including fresh whole Irish turkey, free range bronze turkey, Grove farm Irish organic turkey, turkey crown, boned and rolled turkey and an easy carve joint with winter berry stuffing.
It's easy to pre-order your bird; simply pick up a form in your nearest participating Tesco store before Monday, 15th December and follow these four steps:
- Complete form
Complete the order form and bring it to the pre-order location in your chosen store.
- Pay €10 deposit
A €10 deposit will be required to secure your order. You will then receive a €10 deposit coupon.
Collect your order on the date and time allocated.
Once you have completed your Christmas shopping, go to the checkout. Hand your €10 deposit coupon to the cashier to get your €10 deposit automatically deducted from the bill.
