According to the American Farm Bureau Federation, the average cost of a 16-pound turkey is a little more than $21. Since the turkey is the food item that costs the most at Thanksgiving, that’s the item I want to find for a good deal every year.
Last week I called and looked at the sales fliers of 11 grocery stores in Utah to find the best deals on Thanksgiving turkeys. Here is the breakdown and where you’ll want to pick up your Thanksgiving turkey this year.
Ridley’s – Free Norbest up to 20 lbs. Turkey with $150 purchase.
Note: Ridley’s has 7 store locations in Utah. And if you are a Medallian customer, those who regularly spend $75 at Ridley’s per week, you can pick up a voucher for a free turkey.
LoLo’s in Provo – Free 20 lb. Turkey when you spend $150.
Smith’s – Private Selection Turkey – $0.69 lb. with a purchase of $25.
Albertsons – Honeysuckle White Turkey – $0.69 lb. with a purchase of $25.
Fresh Market/Dick’s – Norbest Turkey – $0.69 lb. when you spend $50.
Winco – Norbest and Jennie-O Turkeys – $0.78 lb.
Note: Winco beats competitor pricing, so the above price could drop depending on the prices at the other stores.
Walmart – Festive Grade A Tom – $0.88 lb. They also have Jennie-O Turkeys for $1.08 lb. and Butterball Hen Turkeys for $1.18 lb.
Macey’s – Norbest Turkey – $0.99 lb. Plus, there is a $1.00 off in-ad coupon you can use in the sales flier. And there is a $5 off ham or turkey coupon when you purchase four 12-pack 12 oz. cans of Coke products.
Harmons – Norbest Turkey – $0.99 lb.
Reams – Norbest Turkey – $1.19 lb. Plus, there is a $2 off in-ad coupon in the sales flier. There is also a $4 off turkey coupon when you purchase four 12-pack 12 oz. cans of Coke products.
If you find a good deal on a turkey at a store I haven’t listed, then please let me know, and I’ll add it to the list.
