Dust off the good china and bust out the basters – Thanksgiving is just around the corner and consumers are building their grocery lists and prepping for one of the biggest travel days of the year.

This week, all of us at Swagbucks announced the findings from our Thanksgiving 2016 Survey, which revealed everything from travel trends and predictions, insights into grocery store shopping trends, some of the most popular Thanksgiving brands, and more. Over 20,000 respondents participated in the survey, and now we’re ready to serve up the results!

Planes, trains, and automobiles – which one will you choose for your Turkey Day travel? Buckle up, you may be surprised.  81% of those traveling will travel by car, while only 16% will fly.

Still looking to dodge the crowds? We recommend leaving early! The busiest days for travel are between Monday and Wednesday the week of Thanksgiving. 58% of travelers will leave during this time. Of those traveling, 73% are traveling 4 hours or less to get to their destination.
