Where are you buying your turkey? How much?

Winco has a deal that if you purchase $50.00 in groceries you can purchase a turkey for .26lb a pound. I just purchased a 27 pounder. I hope it will fit in my roaster. The total cost is only a little over $7. I'm going to find many ways to make this bird stretch. I love congratulating myself on how little I can spend on a meal the whole family will enjoy. Keeping the price per serving low is like a pat on the back.
I'm planning on packing several Thanksgiving dinners into family size portions and freeze. Thanksgiving flavors are always desired in February.
Let's work together and figure out what grocery stores are having the best deal this year on .
What are the deals in your area?

I picked up several frozen turkey's to keep in the freezer. I usually fix one for the boys at deer camp...I got jenny-o's for $.40 / lb. from Wal-Mart

They have frozen turkeys at rainbow foods for 37 cents/lbs, or cub also offers the for 38 cents/lb. I think you have to purchase $25.00 at either place to get that price. Which is ok with me have to buy the rest of the dinner and how =)

I'm waiting to find a good deal at Kroger or Meijer's.... Like you, I am into freezer cooking. :)

Well I'm actually going tonight to make my food purchases for Thanksgiving. I don't want to be part of the crowd this weekend shopping for it. I know that Wal-Mart has turkey for 40 cents a lb. but I think I will check out Dillons (Kroger) too. They usually have some great deals when you use your Dillons card. I will probably purchase a turkey between 15-20 lbs. (lots of people to feed)

I usually shop at Winco, but didn't see that special when I went there last week! I wish I HAD seen it, because I spent over $100 there and could have saved money on a turkey. I wonder if I take my receipt in if they'll let me go ahead and get a turkey for the sale price. It's worth a try!! Otherwise, I usually buy my turkey at Vons. They have them on sale for a flat price for three different weight ranges, with the most expensive one being any Butterball brand turkey over 20 pounds for $12. The least expensive ones are the 10-12 pound "generic" brand turkeys for $5.

I already bought a $5.00 Von's turkey. It was small but will be great down the road. I will be comparing prices once I see the Ads this afternoon and tomorrow.

$.40/lb @ Walmart is the best deal I've seen in town too. No min purchase!

I bought mine at Walmart as well. Can't beat .40 a pound around here. Its been sitting in my freezer a little while now. Its an 18 pounder! Going to be a lot of leftovers. I was looking at the price and never thought of the pounds when I bought it. Need to do all of my Thanksgiving this week sometime so I don't crammed with other shoppers. Waiting for the sales ads to come out today I think. I hope they are good! :)

I am getting a free one because I have spent $300 there the last several weeks. My daughter also is getting a free one so we will be set.

Good job to all who are investing their lives into raising the next generation.
