How much a pound do you pay for your turkey?

My hubby is dying to buy a turkey right now I told him to wait because they will go on sale for close to 50 cents a pound. Am I right?

  • Our local grocery stores, Tops and Wegmans compete each year. So right now, with a $25 store purchase (including the original price of the turkey) they are 38 cents a pound. Some years they have been as little as 19 cents a pound.

    I bought a 23 pound turkey for $8.74 yesturday. And I'll do my grocery shopping a little at a time and buy 3 or 4 more for the freezer to last us the year

  • Yes, 50 cent a pound sound good. You are right.

  • They aren't on sale here yet. The normal price is about 1.29 per lb, but near Thanksgiving it could be about 29 cents per pound, so I stock up.

  • Wished we had a deep freezer or I'd be buying room in the freezer at the moment.

    In FLA here the prices will be about .49 cent a pound here too the closer to Thanksgiving it gets.......right now Butterball is .99 cents a pound.

  • Right now I can get them for 39cents a pound and free with a ham purchase (ham is on sale too). Otherwise right now a good price here is 69cents a pound, til closer to T-day - then we'll find them as cheap as 19cents a pound.
