Aldi Turkey Price

This is a fantastic price per pound for Butterball if you have an Aldi store near you. I especially love that it doesn’t require any additional purchase, coupon, etc. to get this price.

This price is up .10 from last year.

Amazon Fresh Turkey Price

Costco Turkey Price

This is a very good price for fresh turkeys, particularly because Costco does not require an additional purchase. Also, note that these are FRESH turkeys, not frozen.

If you want Costco to do the cooking for you this year, you can order the Thanksgiving Meal for $149.99. This serves 8 and includes:

  1. Not sure why I read the entire post since I live on the entirely different coast and don’t have any of these deals! But it’s so interesting to know what others pay sometimes for the same things 🙂 In the Boston area they are .49-.59 a pound, so hopefully that price will spread your way next week!

    1. LOL – well you are ALWAYS welcome to see what’s going on over here! Even if you don’t have the same stores, at least you can get a general idea of what I’m seeing and considering a deal right now. I consider $0.49/lb the price to beat this year! 😉

      1. Food lion a chain super market here in the South, Bedford Virginia in my case had this deal from 11/7 thru 11/15 2018, .27 cents a lb with a $35 purchase. Thats the best deal I have seen so far. Picked up a 20lb and an 18lb for just over 10 bucs!

  2. I appreciate living within the weekly budget for food but am always willing to stock up on things like toilet paper and shampoo and soap and toothpaste (those items that i always seem to have coupons for and will always need) to get the free turkey. I find that helps me to not go through the store thinking ‘I just need to spend another $20 and then ending up with $20 of chips and pop and cookies and stuff that I don’t really need.

    1. I think that’s why it’s hard to say where the “best” deal is – it really depends on your family’s needs, which stores are in the area, what makes best sense to you. Thanks for sharing. 😉

  3. We live in the suburbs of Chicago, and our Jewel-Osco (Albertson’s) will match ANY competitor’s turkey price per pound.

    Also, they are selling Jennie-O hens and tom turkey’s for .49 per pound. No spending minimum, either. I bought two for next Thursday…think I’ll go back and grab a few more for the freezer!

    1. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas I usually purchase around 10 extra turkeys for the freezer. Here the best price is .84/pound – which is the least expensive protein we’ll see until next holiday season.

    2. Geeze, here in AZ, the BEST deals are about $.99/lb or spend $150 and get a free bird. I used to wait and get them for about $.29/lb and toss 2 in the freezer for later. Now, they’re not even really in the budget!

  4. I did the butterball deal at target with the 3 buck coupon 12lb 9 bucks~! Safeway: if u switch a prescription there they give u a $25 coupon. they also rotate their meat earlier than other stores so if u go to the clearance u can get 30-50% off other meat and fish u can freeze. so u can stock up on 25 buck of meat, which is like getting about 40 bucks of meat, get the turkey for 69cents a pound for 12 that would be around 8-9 bucks and use your gift card and get it free and then some!!!!!

  5. Huh, it’s surprising that your Albertson’s turkey deal is so different than what we have here in Boise, ID. I thought that both Boise and Seattle areas were in the same Alberston’s “region”. Through 11/20, our Albertson’s deal is $0.59/lb when you buy $25 worth of groceries, which seems like a pretty good deal.

  6. For those down in Salem, OR, Winco’s turkeys are one penny less per pound than Fred Meyer. Spend $50, .58/lb, spend $100, .48/lb. I went yesterday and just bought staples that I use all the time and that tend to be cheaper at Winco than Fred Meyer.

    I was a *tad* disappointed that Winco is only coming in at one penny less than Fred Meyer. 🙁

  7. I got my turkey last night from Winco in Puyallup. My turkey was free because I spent $150, which is not advertised near the turkeys. However, the turkeys are smaller at this location than they were last year. The biggest I could find was 15 pounds and last year I was able to find at least a 20 pound turkey. My cashier mentioned the same thing.

  8. Hello I live in california so I know that prices vary but I was able to get a bone in ham for $.99 a pound last year. So far this year I haven’t seen a price even close to that. By chance has anyone seen the price at Winco?

  9. I got a 24 lb. turkey free at the Sumner WINCO today when I bought over $150. It isn’t advertised in the store, but the cashier automatically did it for me when she checked me out. I picked out the biggest turkey I could find since I’m having 25+ people over. There were several turkeys in the 20+ lb. range.

  10. @Jennifer…bone in ham was $1.29 a pound tonight at my local Winco. I’ve been watching for the 99 cent price point, too, and haven’t seen it here yet either.

  11. I did the B1G1 @ Albie’s cuz $35 was me splurging at the store. Best times to get ham deals is after Thanksgiving & Christmas when they get marked down, standing rib roasts are big after Christmas and New Years as well.

  12. Here’s my turkey deal today! Target is offering a cartwheel for $10.00 off a $50 food and beverage purchase. So the first thing I grabbed is a turkey. It was almost $10. Then I continued to shop for things I normally buy. Essentially I spent $40 and got a free turkey!!

  13. I purchased a Honeysuckle White turkey at Grocery Outlet yesterday, not tagged but around 15lbs for $17.99.

  14. Fred Meyer isn’t offering a free Turkey with purchase this year. I just saw tomorrow’s ad and the offer is for $.49 a pound with a $50 purchase.

    1. You have to have a $50 purchase? I hope that’s not true. I saw television ad advertising fred meyer turkeys for .49 per pound. I didn’t see or hear anything about a minimum purchase. I plan to go there this morning to get one — but I don’t have $50 to spend. I hope I don’t have to go without a turkey.

  15. I saw the Safeway ad last week and it was offering the free Turkey if you spend $150. I didn’t see it today and I am going T-Day Dinner shopping Friday. Do you know how long the deal was/is good for? I will be devastated if I am unable to get my free Turkey as I am doing 2 this year; my “free” one and one I will be purchasing. My son leaves for the military next year (2017) and the following year my daughter will be in college. This is our last year, for a while, where will all be together. I want to rock it out! Please let me know asap. I’d greatly appreciate it!! 🙂

  16. The Grocery Outlet in South Tacoma just announced today Jennie-O Frozen Young Turkey (10lbs – 14lbs) for $7.99.

  17. Thank you so much for this post!! Im doing my FIRST turkey this year, and getting ready tonhead out shopping this morning! Its so helpful to have all the deals in one place.

  18. Got a Norbest turkey at the Grocery Outlet today. The price is $7.99 no matter of size (after their $10 coupon) with $30 purchase. However, the turkeys are 12-14 lbs not 12 to 24 lbs as you posted. Found a 14 lbs but majority were closer to 12 lbs. Deal is good until 11/14/17.
    Thanks for posting the prices and deals.

  19. Here in the Dallas area, Albertsons is the price to beat this year at 39 cents a pound for a frozen turkey with $25 purchase.

    Have a good thanksgiving y’all.

  20. I retired after 40+ years in retail grocery. Any and all turkey prices and ‘deals’ are loss leaders. That means that the company will lose money selling the turkeys for that price. How they figure to make money is on all the other items the customer purchases/even it they are ‘on sale’.

  21. Need to be mindful of which turkey you actually get for that price. I was in Grocery Outlet and noticed Foster Farm turkey, ok sure. And then when I got to the register was told that turkey didn’t qualify, the “Norbest” ones are. Now here on the West Coast I never heard of Norbest before, and knowing that Grocery Outlet is often a reseller of stuff that doesn’t sell elsewhere, it really was vexing whether or not I should do Norbest.

    I think next year I’m just going to pay a little extra for a quality bird and not even think about the “deals”

  22. Winco in visalia, ca is doing turkeys $0.29/lb with a $25 purchase. I have a small family so a 11.3# turkey came out to $3.23! It was a genie o brand they also had a brand that I didnt look at as they were all 15-22#s.
    Happy holidays!

  23. Thank you so much for putting together this detailed list. Even though I live in AZ, it is still very helpful. I wanted to point out that the Costco “fresh” birds are sold from a freezer case, most frozen solid. They are all around 20 lbs with little variation.

  24. Hi–I’m planning a church dinner in Federal Way for 225 on Dec 15, and hoped I could find a good deal on turkeys somewhere. Are the good deals over after Thanksgiving? or can some still be found? Thanks!!!!

  25. Check your Walmart! I just got a Butterball turkey today for $0.68 a pound!! Dont know if it was just a local markdown, but it’s worth a look if you still need one!

      1. Good point. The $0.47 price applies in Portland Oregon, but I can’t speak for the rest of the country. 🙂

  26. Well
    Happy Thanksgiving to any and all.
    I just built a electric smoker from a flower cooler gone bad. Its pretty bitchin , except some of the interior plastic has sort of shriveled up. Anyway I’m gonna try smoking a few turkeys and then handing them out at the local homeless hangout.
    My goal is 4 birds at once . If anybody has experience with this sort of thing feel free to share. Markrech@yahoo.com . It seems worthy. Thanks

  27. Aldi has a terrific 2 day sale on November 17 and 18 only. Buttetballs are priced at an amazing 45 cents per pound. No additional purchase neccesary. Needless to say, the store is packed with bargain hunters. So hurry before they sell out.

  28. I am looking turkey at last night. This turkey looking was so impressive and reliable to see. Do you know I am able to get my free Turkey and I am got my turkey at last night
