Even though meat & fish do not always have a coupon, we can still get great deals on it. Just like everything else, the key is to buy it when it’s at it’s lowest price and stock up on it. If your store is having a great sale on chicken and your family eats a lot of it, then buy enough to last you a month or two. The key is to know when these prices are at rock bottom.
Although prices of meat do vary from different states, here is a list of stockpile prices for you to use as a guide.
- Ground Beef 80 -85% Lean: $1.69/lb
- Boneless Chicken Breasts $1.69/lb
- Bone in Chicken Breast $0.79/lb
- Whole Chickens $0.79/lb
- Chicken Thighs or Drumsticks $0.79/lb
- Boneless Pork Chops $1.49/lb
- Boneless Pork Loin $1.49/lb (I always buy this and have them slice them into chops for me)
- London Broil $1.69/lb (usually sold in double packs at this price)
- Top Sirloin Steak $3.99/lb
- Flank Steak $4.99/lb
Also, make sure to look for Manager’s Special discounts. Most stores have dollar off coupons attached to the meat packages. They do this when the expiration date of the meat is quickly approaching. Check with your meat department to find out if there are certain days or a particular time of day that they mark down their meat.
