Ham & Turkey Deals–A Store By Store Price Guide

The Todd is tackling a Turducken again this Thanksgiving, much to our extended family’s delight.

(Editor’s note: for the uninitiated, a “Turducken” is a de-boned turkey, a layer of stuffing, a de-boned duck, a layer of stuffing, a de-boned chicken, another layer of stuffing then stitch the whole bad boy up. Unbelievable.) If you want to try it yourself, click here to watch a step by step instruction video from my talented spouse.

For the locals: if you’re still checking out ham and turkey prices, WinCo Foods is offering a free turkey to shoppers who spend at least $100 on groceries. Some Walmart stores will match this offer. (Call your local store before you go to make sure yours does.) In addition to the free-turkey offer, many stores are offering low prices on frozen and fresh turkeys. Smith’s, for example, is offering a 12- to 14-pound hen turkey for $8 or a 16 to 20-pound tom turkey for $10 with a $35 grocery purchase. You can get an additional $3 off either of those by purchasing four qualifying Coca-Cola 6- and/or 12-packs for $10.00.

Nationwide: there’s an excellent, comprehensive store comparasion list on Pinching Your Pennies.com.

*There is a $5 mail in offer for fresh or frozen Butterball turkeys, available HERE to print – when you send it in you will get (5) $1 coupons good off of Butterball products.

This rebate form is also in the SS-11/13 insert.

Some of the Associate Foods stores ads have a $1.00 off coupon for the purchase of a Norbest Tender-Timed Young Turkey.
