    Trying to purchase a Thanksgiving turkey

    Yesterday my neice and I went to buy a Turkey for Thanksgiving well we started out going to Target and obvisouly they didn't have any so we went across the road to a Winn-Dixie found one got to the register and the cashier told us go get it for .99 per pound we would have to purchase an extra 35.00 groceries so we went to another store and found a turkey go back home looked at the recipt from W/D and found out I had bought some wheat thins and triskets on a bogo since they were both Nabisco products I thought you could buy one of each I was charged full price of $3.59 ea. so called the store they said I could bring the ticket back and get one more box of each.  I only wanted 2 boxes but will end up with 4.

    Winn-Dixie went out of business here and in Tuscaloosa, AL because of high prices and unreliable software/data entry.

     Per request:  BiLo/Bruno's has .59 with $35 and will match any lower price.  Ingles is .68 don't recall a limit, Kroger is .69/$35.  SaveALot is 1.29, Aldi's didn't put an ad out here.

    We paid $1.39 a pound for our turkey. That was the best deal we saw so far.

    Grr, tried to post yesterday, computer locked up, and I lost it.  (That goes along with the plumbing adventures.)  Wally Mart's ad today said they will match any competitor's turkey price but I don't know if that means with minimum purchase or the stores' regular prices.  Target again has Butterball for $.99/lb. - with a disclaimer of availability. 

    Several years ago I used to stop at a W-D for specials on my way home from work.  It was pretty hit or miss for availability.  The store was dirty and the cashiers rude.  The final straw was when they had a really good sale on a certain item.  Of course the shelves were empty when I got there so I got a rain check.  Stopped by almost every day on my way home from work - shelves still empty.  The day after the rain check expired the shelves were restocked.  That did it for me and I never went back.  Not surprisingly W-D closed all of their stores in the area the following year.  Guess everyone else was as fed up as I was.

    Littlepitcher, we have Bi Lo here, too, and that is probably what I will be doing.  $.59/# with $35 order; the Ingles deal of free turkey with $300 purchase is just too much for a small family.  I will put mine in the freezer for later, though.  Won't be cooking this year.  Thanksgiving day is my 39th wedding anniversary, so we are taking a day trip to the casino inCherokee.  We were married on TG day, but this is only about the 3rd or 4th time that our anniversary has fallen on TG day.

    LNBee, I miss our WD here.  It was an older store, but was clean and well run.  It wasn't my primary store to shop at, though, as it was on the other side of town, but they had good sales.  One Thanksgiving morning I was in there and they must have  been going to close early or something, because they were clearing out their Butterball fresh turkeys for $4 each.  I got 4 of them for the freezer.

    Your story of them being oos on a sale item reminds me of the Harris Teeter here when they have triple coupons.  When something is gone, it is gone until after the promotion; apparently there is no restocking of "hot coupon items" during that time.  They haven't had triples in about 7 or 8 months, though, so they may have stopped it altogether.
