Price of turkeys this year

Thanksgiving this year might be one of the most expensive ever, as according to the October 3, 2014 USDA Turkey Market News Report this year there is actually 3% less pounds of turkey available then a year ago and in taking a look at the same week’s USDA’s Weekly Retail Turkey Feature Activity report it seems like practically no retailers have put whole turkeys on sale yet; the sale prices seem to be on those higher priced rotisserie breasts and bone-in breasts. The national average price for both Tom and Hen frozen turkeys are $1.29 per pound.

Traditionally supermarkets use low priced, or free turkeys to lure us in to do all our holiday shopping at their store, but this year may be different as prices for beef, pork and even chicken have all been on the rise.

Have you seen any low prices or deals on turkeys yet?

I haven't seen any sales yet, but they usually come out during the two weeks before Thanksgiving.  I expect to start seeing them next week.
