Whole Foods is offering a new insurance program this year for people who burn their turkeys.

What’s going on?

Whole Foods and Progressive insurance have teamed up for a new insurance policy for people who buy turkeys.

  • People will get a $35 gift card from Whole Foods if they “commit a turkey cooking fail.”

Why now?

CNN reports Whole Foods came up with the idea because of the coronavirus pandemic. Since families can’t gather this year, there might be some first-time cookers.

How it works:

  • Customers will have to buy and obtain their turkey from Whole Foods from Nov. 11 to Nov. 22.
  • Customers then visit TurkeyProtectionPlan.com to see if they’re eligible. You can apply from there.
  • The deal is limited to the first 1,000 claims, though.
  • Claims can be filed beginning Nov. 26.
  • The “cooking fail” must have happened between Nov. 26 and Nov. 27.
