Best Meat Deal of 2009
Well 2009 is coming to an end, and it has been a WONDERFUL Year. For me, 2009 will always be remembered as the year I got married =)
Another great thing about 2009 is the Meat Deal I scored at Publix today. I LOVE Publix meat, and have found some great deals as much as 50% off. Well, I picked up the Albertson's weekly ad as I heard there were great coupons inside on meat(Thanks Paula)!
There are THREE coupons: All are for Meat Deals, Buy One GET TWO FREE. Yep, Not One But TWO Packages FREE (Lower weight items FREE)
The coupons are for: Pork Steak, St. Louis Style Ribs and Boneless Pork Tenderloin.
I took this ad to Publix and spoke with a manager(since I didn't want to carry all the meat up front and have a problem at checkout). The manager said he would accept the coupons as long as it was for the same item. Publix had the Pork Steak and Boneless Pork Tenderloin, but not the St. Louis Style Ribs. So I got 3 packages of Pork Steak and 3 packages of Boneless Pork Tenderloin. The best part was the meats were on Advantage Buy Special already. The Pork Steak was on sale $1.99lb and the Pork Tenderloin was $4.99lb.
I made sure to get packages of equal weight, as I knew I had to pay for the most expensive weight.
I ended up paying $2.83 for 3 packages of Pork Steak and $12.48 for 3 packages of Pork Tenderloin = $15.31. I have been smiling ever since I got home. I can't think of a time I got a better deal on Meat...Have you?
The Albertson's ad is good through 12/15. So if you have a store near by, I would suggest heading in to stock up. I asked the meat manager how long meat lasts in the freezer- he said if you have a good freezer, at least 2 years. WOW- I actually could have bought more(j/k- I'll save the rest of the meat for all of you). My husband was VERY Impressed when I came home with my stack of meat. He can't wait to grill it up. We kept out a package of each and froze the other 2. I'll let you know how they grill up later in the week..Enjoy!
