    Default Best buy for Turkey?

    I finally caved and bought a turkey for $1.49 a lb at Safeway, I was hoping it would go lower. I got two turkeys from superstore at Thanksgiving for .99 cents a pound but I used both and I was wishing they would go down that low again....Did anyone else get a better deal?

    Save-on-foods has Free turkeys for 12,000 points but I only have 9200 points. That would have been great!

    I have only ever seen really good deals on Turkeys just prior to thanksgiving. In my area they never seem to go on sale again just before Christmas, so I always get 3 in November; one for thanksgiving, one for christmas, and one for when I feel like turkey again.

    I don't think I have ever spent over .99c a lb for turkey. I would just buy mor turkeys when do they go on sale (here for as low as .69c lb ) and then just keep 'em in the deep freeze. Just MHO.

    Right after Thanksgiving, our local grocery had turkey's on sale for .69 cents a pound with a hundred dollar grocery purchase, or .89 cents with a $50 grocery purchase. I didn't get one becuase they were huge and I didn't need one as big as they had! It would have been a great deal if I had needed a giant turkey though!

    A while back, our local co-op had turkey on for 98 cents a pound. I bought 4 and still have 3. That was the cheapest I found in a very long time. Brandon is selling them for $1.49 right now.

    I see that Save-On Foods ( Western Family group) has a $10.00 of Turkey coupon valid Dec 14 - 24, in their flyer. There does not seem to be a minimum purchase.

    The Save-on $10.00 coupon is also valid for the Western Classics brand also.

    I noticed Sobeys had their turkeys for $19.99 and you got bonus club points. Mine weren't anywhere near that price at 98 cents and they are larger than the $19.99 turkey. I'm not sure why they have them priced like that, never seen that before. It's usually by the pound.

    They did that at thanksgiving too, I forget the amount but it was a flat price per turkey. I'd never seen that before either, but they were all pretty much the same size. I haven't seen a decent price since easter '07. I think $1.79 is the lowest I've seen, and no sales at all yet for Christmas.

    What's really annoying here is that no one here seems to put their price in the flyers anymore, they just put a picture of a turkey and guarantee the lowest price. So you have no way to compare except to go around and check every store, and of course they are all the same price everywhere.

    In November, I got a whole bird for .99 a pound, and then I got one for .49 a pound. That was a limit of 1 at that price. But I should have gone back in , and got another one.
    Now I am pricing turkey breasts for Xmas. P&C has them for $ 1.98 a pound, and at the small grocery store IGA, they have butterball at $ 1.49 a pound this week. I might get one of those later this week.
    The cousin wants to give us a live turkey for Xmas. We would need to go to the farm and probably hubby would have to do the critter in. So that is another option for us this year.

    So am I the only person who saw the title and thought, "That's a silly post - Best Buy doesn't sell turkey, they sell computer stuff!" ?
