Our Target had them for $0.79 as well. I bought a small turkey breast to keep in the freezer for $0.99. For $6.00, you can get several meals out of it.

A Publix opened a month or so ago about 25 miles from us. We don't get their ads in our newspaper, but my daughter found an offer in their weekly on-line ad through Wednesday to get a free turkey with a new prescription or if you got a flu shot. DH and I both got shots on Friday (which we needed to do anyway) and got a 16# turkey each. The shots were free after insurance.

OP, hope you don't mind if I hijack slightly, but I was wondering how much a ham should cost? What's a good price per pound? I've never purchased a ham before and would like to have one for our Christmas party, but I'm kind of clueless when it comes to price Thanks in advance!

.69 per pound it what I paid last year.

Update, was at Safeway yesterday, and they are advertising "Guaranteed lowest local price on turkey!" and were offering frozen turkey (not Butterball, but we NEVER buy butterball and are fine...) for $.59/lb **with additional $35 purchase**

However the prices in the rest of the store were so awful that I doubt we will be buying from them... I'm talking $1.99 for stove-top awful...

We're actually have Thanksgiving with the in-laws, but I'm hoping to pick up cheap turkeys for Christmas and to cut up and keep in the freezer. I still remember buying the giant turkeys at HEB for $.19/lb and using it in EVERYTHING when we were newlyweds... we ate turkey for months...

We eat turkey once a year, thus we aren't going to skimp and pay almost nothing for a turkey full of water and salt. Paying for a turkey or ham really makes a difference. The cheap stuff is flavorless. Not what I want to cook for a huge family gathering.

My mother-in-law bought a cheap ham at the grocery store for Easter one year because she didn't think the first ham from a butcher for $.$$/lb would be enough. What a difference between the two.

I'd rather pay a measly $40 to feed a fantastic meal to a house full of guests for a party than $10 for something utterly tasteless.

Guess I'd better get in on Turkey Watch 2012 as I'll be cooking one this year.

MIL usually cooks it but last year I did everything BUT the turkey & hauled it to her house. I told DH if I was going to cook 9/10 of the meal, I'll just do the turkey too and they can come here!
