Post Thanksgiving Turkey Clearance Thread ...

Hey Guys,

I know it's quite common for various locations to have a lot of left over Turkey post thanksgiving, and often go for fantastic prices post thanksgiving. I figured a single thread concerning such sightings might be a good idea. My local GT has Butterball turkey breast on for $12 per box (~900G, down from $15), though I don't consider this to be a fantastic deal by any means. Hoping those closer to the big box stores may have seen some great deals, last year I got a butterball for $0.49/lb

Sorry if this isn't a 'typical hot deal' or whatever, remove if you guys feel it's inappropriate, just hoping to spur the conversation/sightings of good deals around.

I know when I tried Loblaws a few years ago they told me they freeze their fresh turkeys for Christmas. Obviously YMMV

Thanks for this post. I actually went out this morning to buy a fresh one to cook today as we were unable to do Thanksgiving over the weekend. I found fresh ones at Sobeys for .99lb. I know frozen will be cheaper soon and I will probably pick one up for the holidays or whatever as we all like turkey anyway. So I got a 10lb for $10

$0.99 for fresh is a pretty great deal, which Sobey's ?

Gonna hit up Costco later and hope they still have some fresh ones.
Do you not have anything else to do rather than argue with strangers on the internet
Nope. That's why I'm on the internet arguing with strangers. If I had anything better to do I'd probably be doing it.

I don't know about anyone else but I think there is a big difference between fresh and frozen. Cooked 2 birds over the weekend and the fresh was definitely way better.

$20 off at Heartland Costco... They had about 10 birds left in the bin when I was there at lunchtime.

I went out to few stores looking for deals, Freshco (not a good sale & all frozen), Save-On (no turkey at all), Safeway (no sale), Costco (no turkey) & RCSS (no turkey).

I wouldn't make a trip out just to find turkey, it must be very location specific.

You might also want to make sure they're not utility-grade... we've noticed more of a difference between Utility vs. Grade A than we have between fresh and frozen, FWIW.

Picked up a fresh one at Costco Downsview 20$ off each. Picked the smallest I could find lol. They were removing them from the display as I was looking through and andtting them in the freezer as well I suspect.

While searching for turkey, have any of you come across discounted pumpkin pie?

Maybe 15-20 fresh turkeys at Junction No Frills. Sign says 30% off but don't know how much that is $/lbs.
PC brand, they moved them all to the cooler up at the front by the self checkouts.

I stand corrected, Wife picked it up earlier from RCSS and they are actually fresh young turkeys for $0.88/lb

utility-grade turkeys are basically the same as grade A except they tend to be missing parts (ie: drumstick, wing etc....). I've never noticed a difference in flavour or quality of the meat otherwise.

How much is it regular price per lb?
