Frequently Asked Questions About Butterball Gift Checks

About the Butterball Turkey Gift Check Program

The Butterball Gift Checks have been in circulation for nearly 30 years, and truly are a great way to say “thanks” to your hard-working employees, show your appreciation to your loyal customers and offer assistance to those in need during the holiday season.

The Butterball Gift Checks powered by Array Enterprises are accepted at virtually any grocery store, nation-wide, that accepts checks and carries Butterball products. This program is extremely budget friendly, as you can choose any denomination, up to $50. Your recipient can use their gift check on a Butterball turkey product, or other grocery food items to complement their holiday meal. Note: if the gift check’s entire value does not get used on the turkey, the remaining balance will be applied toward the rest of the grocery bill.

Customizing and Special Requests

Yes! Tell your employees or customers how valued they are by adding a personal message on the top portion of the gift check. You can upload your company logo as well.

We have been asked by major retailers to leave the “pay to the order of” line blank in an effort to ensure a seamless transaction. Just like a personal check, the gift check recipient will put the store’s name right on the “pay to the order of” line and hand it over to the cashier. Not only will keeping this line blank make using the gift checks easier, but this will protect your gift in the event that employee turnover makes a personalized check unusable.

Anytime our customers have a unique, or special request, we will always do what we can to accommodate their needs. Please contact your account representative or our customer service team to assist you further.

Any Butterball affiliated donations, must be approved and handled by Butterball directly. You can contact Butterball to inquire at 1-800-BUTTERBALL (1-800-288-8372).

No. All gift checks are custom printed with your chosen denomination, so adding a personal message or a company logo will not slow down production time, as everything will be printed at once.

Gift Check Usage

Per our terms and conditions, we are not liable nor able to replace Butterball Gift Checks if lost, stolen or damaged (washed, torn, written on, etc.).

Butterball Gift Checks can be used toward your favorite Butterball product, or other grocery food items to complement your holiday meal, unless there is a disclaimer or messaging on the gift check that suggests otherwise (e.g. Redeemable toward turkey only).

No. You can encourage the retailer to try endorsing the back of the gift check to accept it, however it will ultimately be up to that specific retailer’s 3rd party check cashing policies. Per our terms and conditions, Array is not liable for lost, stolen or damaged (written on) gift checks.

Butterball gift checks are accepted at any grocery store nation-wide that carries Butterball products and accepts checks as a form of payment – virtually all stores.

If a Canadian retailer will accept USD Butterball Gift checks, you can use your USD gift check in Canada, however, it is recommended that you use your USD Butterball Gift Check in the United States and your CAD Butterball Gift Cheque in Canada.

The Butterball Gift Checks are intended to be used at a grocery store toward the purchase of a turkey, or other grocery food items that would complement a holiday meal.

This is up to each retailer’s check policies. If your turkey costs less than the gift check’s face value, we encourage adding more grocery food items to your cart so the entire gift check’s value can be used and not lost.
