Stockup Prices on Meat (Beef, Chicken and Pork)

Hi KCL, I am looking for a list of stockup prices for meat and produce that you can share on your website.  I just started couponing the beginning of June and have already saved over $400! My husband and friends are very impressed!
- KCL  Desirae
Here are my personal stockup prices for various kinds of meat.   When I see these prices, it’s my time to stock up. I do all of my Meat Shopping at my local Albertsons.  Also, when I am really stocking up, I call ahead and tell them what I need and how I want it packaged and they get it ready for me.   I think this is helpful for them because they can help other customers as they need to, and it’s very convenient for me!  Also, when my Albertsons closes their Butcher Block (at 9pm), they mark down their Fresh Ground Beef, to $1.69/lb. So, I try to plan my shopping trips for 9:00 when I need beef!
_____________________________________________________________________
  • Top Sirloin Steak: $3.99/lb
  • Ground Beef, 90% or better:  $1.99/lb
  • Ground Beef, 85%: $1.69
  • Chuck Roast: $1.99/lb
  • Boneless Pork Chops $1.49/lb
  • Pork Loin, Boneless $1.99/lb
  • Pork Roast: $1.49
  • Boneless Chicken Breasts: $1.69-$1.99/lb
  • Bone-in Chicken Breasts: $0.79-$0.99/lb
  • Whole Fryer Chickens: $0.79/lb
  • Chicken Thighs and Drumsticks: $0.79/lb

You may find that your prices are a little higher or lower depending on where you live!

Do you have any stockup prices that are different from mine?

    I always look for the managers special coupons on my meats at albertsons, when the item is priced really low at the same time you can get them for an absolute steal. One day I bought 6 whole fryer chickens for less then $12, I think they were .99/ lb with a 2 dollar manager special coupon, I took all the ones they had (its basically the meats that they need to sell within a day or two). I got each one for around 2 dollars, some a little less some a little more.

    For the past five years I have been shopping our local Holiday Markets sale bin. They will discount their meats. I save quite a bit of money on meat in which the sell by, date is up. I have a freezer so I put the meats in the freezer. I also can get an additional 10% of now and then by using my points towards the purchase. I very rarely buy meat at full price anymore. This has also allowed me to buy organic chicken at a discount.

    Thank you so much for making this list. It is awesome! I just cut and pasted on Word so that I can print the whole thing out to put in my coupon folder. You two are awesome :)!!!

    How MANY packages of meat do you mean when you say “stock up?”

    Thanks!

    Thank you…thank you…thank you! Since I have been couponing for the last year, I’ve mostly been focused on bath and body products…as we lived with my MIL, who didn’t really let me coupon at grocery stores for her. I’d pick up a deal here and there, but I’m just learning what prices are good for meat and this list is soooo helpful.

    Shaw’s has Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts on sale for $1.49! :D I really need to stock my freezer too. Woooohoooo!

    What about bacon and other prepackage meats?

    Is their a Dairy price list out there somewhere?

    Salmon- wild caught fresh/frozen whole fillets I usually will buy it for $9.99/lb but I stock up when I can get it for $6.99/lb usually during the summer months.

  10. Anna says:

    I consider $2 or less for 12 packs, but usually I will stick to 2 ltrs if I can….cheaper and more environmentally friendly

    Wow! That was amazingly helpful! I started trying to do it on my own, gave up, and just use grocery smarts, but this is fabulous! THANK YOU!

    I’m curious on a stock up price for soda! Coupons for Coke/Pepsi are hard to come by. My stock up price is $5 or less for 24 packs and $2.50 or less for 12 packs. I tend to try and stay closer to the $2 mark for 12 packs though. What does everybody else consider a stock up price?

      Join the coke rewards program online and put the codes in for every purchase of a coke product you buy. You can earn free 12 packs, 2 liters etc.

    How about some stock-up prices for fish!
    Shrimp – ?
    Salmon – ?
    Mahi Mahi – ?
    Orange Roughy – ?
    Crab – ?

    Thanks for the pricing on the meats.

  14. Whole Ham: .79 to .99 a pound
    Usually on sale for this price November-January, and again at Easter. Depending on your store, the butcher may cut it into steaks for you for free.

    Spiral Siced ham for $1.29-$1.49 a pound

    Whole Turkey .33 to .40 a pound
    On sale at this price when you buy a turkey for $6-$8 for a 19-20 pound turkey. Stock up at Thanksgiving and the weeks before. Usually this price includes a $25 minimum purchase from the grocery store, which I fulfill by buying $25 of potatoes for .10-.20 a pound.
    I buy several turkeys, cook them, and freeze the meat, and use them in any recipe that calls for chicken. I also keep a couple frozen. I have bought 7 turkeys with just a regular freezer (on top); cooked 4 and freeze 3 whole ones.

    This is great! It’s nice to see what others consider stock up prices and to be able to compare!

    Can anyone tell me a good price rule of thumb for ground chicken & turkey? I have high cholesterol so those two are my best ground beef replacements. My hubby didn’t like the meatless version that a Morning Star makes.

  17. Sheila says:

    This is great! Thanks! There are some stock up this week on Nob Hill (Raleys) ground beef and Safeway whole chickens.

  18. Sandra says:

    I would put $2.99 as the stock-up price for sirloin as I have seen quite a few sales at that price in the last year. (usually for petite sirloin steaks)

  19. Nicole says:

    I dont know if they do it everywere, but im in utah. If you go to fresh market at 9pm when the meat department is closing they have hamburger for $1 a pound usually 93% or 97% lean meat. They have it packaged by one pound right next to the meat department.

  20. Denise says:

    My rule of thumb is this: If it’s boneless I’m looking for anything under $2/lb. If it’s bone-in I want it to be a $1.25/lb or less. I don’t buy ground beef, but I do look for ground turkey at about $1.75/lb or less (more or less the same prices as boneless meat.) I consider tofu to be a boneless meat. Occasionally I can get Tofu for $1/16oz, but usually get it at near $1.50 lb and consider a bargain in the boneless category.

    Beyond that rule of thumb I know that between chicken and pork, chicken is the one more likely to be further under my price limits. (I wish I could find boneless chops for $1.49!!) I’m in Southern California.

      I shop at WinCo Sometimes. I live in Riverside, Ca. There are stores in Fontana, Moreno Valley & Pomona that I know of. They have Pork Riblets and pork chops cheap there most of the time. Riblets are on an avg. 1.25 lb and chops at 1.45 lb. They also have 10 lb chubs of Ground Beef between 1.29 lb – 1.69 lb depending on type,
