Looking for the best grocery store to buy eggs?
Like many, we constantly scour the aisles to find the best-priced eggs. We have seen the highest spike in eggs this year due to a massive shortage of supplies, which you can read more about here. Because of the prices, we’ve even come up with a variety of egg alternatives.
However, we still are missing our classic eggs! While they’re started to decrease in price compared to last year, prices have yet to go back to normal. For this reason, we are rounding up some egg prices that are lower than the current average. Note that these prices heavily depend on your city and state, which is why we’re including an extensive variety of stores.
When in doubt, buy in bulk!
As the egg price slowly decreases, we notice the best value remains in purchasing value packs. On top of getting more bang for your buck, you also are able to take fewer trips to the grocery store.
Take a look at the prices we’ve seen in bulk…
- Target Good & Gather Grade A Large Eggs 30-Count – $6.59 = 22¢/egg
- Target Good & Gather Grade A Large Eggs 12-Count – $2.89 = 24¢/egg
Walmart Great Value Large White Eggs 36-Count – $7.06 = 20¢/egg
- Whole Foods 36-Count – $8.79 = 24¢/egg
- Whole Foods 12-Count – $6.49 = 54¢/egg
Costco Kirkland Signature Cage-Free Eggs 24-Count – $6.71 = 28¢/egg
BJs Wellsley Farms Egga Extra Large 36-Count – $13.35 = 37¢/egg
Sam’s Club Sauder’s Large White Eggs (7.5 doz.) – $17.98 = 20¢/egg
Looking for eggs on sale but in a smaller amount?
Some of us aren’t looking to buy in bulk, and that’s okay, too! We have other options that are still fairly priced for a dozen. Breaking it down by price per egg helps you to visually see how much you’re actually willing to spend on eggs and which store has the best option for your budget.
Here are some other cheap 12-dozen egg prices…
Walmart Great Value Extra Large Eggs 12-Count – $2.28 = 19¢/egg
Aldi Goldhen Grade A Large Eggs 12-Count – $3.49 = 29¢/egg
Albertsons Lucerne Farms Eggs Large 12-Count – $3.69 = 31¢/egg
Sprouts Cage Free Large Grade AA White OR Brown Eggs 12-Count – $3.99 = 33¢/egg
How can you tell how long your eggs stay fresh?
You may be on the fence about buying in bulk or prolonging the lifespan of your eggs in the fridge especially when the expiration date has passed. One method our Hip team members have used is the float test!
Simply place your egg in a bowl of water; if it lays on its side on the bottom, it’s still fresh. If it’s standing straight up, it should be eaten soon and best served when hard-boiled. If it floats, it should be discarded as its passed its prime. Our team has tried this even a week after the expiration date, and the eggs have always stayed fresh.
When in doubt, freeze your eggs!
Did you know you can freeze your eggs for up to a YEAR?! We dive into this post deep, discussing how to freeze a variety of dairy products.
For eggs, whisk them up and pour them into an easy-twist ice cube tray or a muffin tin. You can season as desired now to avoid doing so later; when you’re ready to defrost, leave it in the fridge for 24 hours before intended use. What an egg-cellent idea! 🥚

Thank you so much for the great information !☺️
You’re welcome, Pamela! So happy you enjoyed this post! 🥰
Check around your neighborhood to see if any of your neighbors sell eggs. I got lucky and my neighbor has chickens.
Great tip, Pat! Glad you were able to find a neighbor who offered up some eggs for you! 🥚🤗
The cheapest eggs I’ve seen are the $2.60/dozen Great Value eggs at Walmart. That’s cheaper than my other nearby supermarkets. What’s funny is that Eggland’s Best are cheaper than Sunny Meadows eggs at Winn-Dixie. I always thought that Eggland’s Best was the one that was marketed as the premium brand. But, the price difference is nearly $1, even when looking at a dozen of larger sized Eggland’s Best eggs. But, then, they stock relatively few cartons of Eggland’s Best eggs. So, most people will end up paying the higher price, because the Sunny Meadows will be the cheapest thing available there. Now, I’m cheap. I would drive the half a mile, to the nearby Walmart, to save that extra $2.
Eggland’s Best are typically more expensive but their prices have remained the same while others have risen tremendously!
Makes you wonder, doesn’t the t?
Thanks so much for sharing about the egg prices near you, paul! Good to know that Walmart seems to have the best deal nearby! 🥚🙌
Also check out Trader Joe’s. I got a dozen eggs for $3.29 yesterday (27¢ per egg).
Awesome! 🥚🎉 Thanks for letting us know where you’ve spotted a great deal on eggs near you, Bunny! 💗
An 18 count of Good and Gather eggs at my local Target are $7.69! Costco had inexpensive ones last visit though.
Oh wow! Thanks so much for the update on egg prices at stores near you, RLW! 🥚
The 24 count Members Mark cage free large eggs are only $5.82 at my Sams club.
Good to know the price you’ve spotted eggs for at your Sam’s location, hip2trade! 🙌
While the posts states “large” and “extra large” eggs in the pricing, what I don’t find addressed is the fact that all “large” and “extra large” eggs aren’t created equal. When I bake, I have to physically look at the eggs I buy (not just for breakage) but for size consistency and the size I prefer. It’s wonky but a problem that impacts my baking. Am I the only one? So cheaper isn’t always better. If I’m just frying up an egg, no problems though. I shop around.
Thanks for sharing your feedback on sizing consistency, Mary! Good to know that it might impact baking or cooking needs. I did notice on a package of large eggs that I grabbed recently that the sizing was inconsistent even in the carton, so I could totally see why this might be important to others! 🤗🥚❤️
We went to Costco and got the biggest egg package which made them about $3 a dozen. As much as we eat of eggs they will keep.
Last week I purchased 24 count carton of large eggs at Sam’s Club in Indianapolis for $5.44. They had a limit of 2 cartons per purchase.
I live in the country in upstate NY.I can get farm fresh eggs for $3.
If you have a Natural Grocers nearby, their eggs are $1.99/dozen. I usually buy pasture raised/organic eggs and their prices have remained stable at $4.99/dozen.
I guess I lied. Went there today and the cheapest was $3.50/dozen and pasture raisedhas moved to $5.99/dozen. Still not horrible for super high quality eggs.
Our Whole Foods price for eggs is $3.29 for the 365 large eggs.
I often by eggs at a farm stand since I live in a rural area. At a glance, paying $4.50 a dozen doesn’t seem like a great deal, but the eggs are usually huge so it’s like getting a bonus half dozen. So, just a plug to check out any local farmers and consider size. 🙂
Thanks for mentioning buying local from a farmer, Beverly! 🤗 So awesome that the eggs seem to be larger than options at a grocery store. 🥚🎉
Ruler has had them for 1.99 for a dozen in my area. 😊
Great price! 🙌💕
Reportedly, Jewel-Osco in Chicago will have a flash sale Sunday-Tuesday (Feb 26-28) with large eggs for $1.99 a dozen. I haven’t confirmed it yet, and not sure if other Albertsons stores might be doing that.
Wow! Thanks for the heads up, John! What a great sale that would be if they do have it! 🙌💕
I paid $4.39 for 18 Good and Gather large eggs this past weekend. After 5% Redcard 22¢ each. I count that as a win. Plus free curbside pickup so I didn’t impulse shop.
YES! Great buy, Peaches! Thanks for sharing the price you recently paid for eggs! 🙌❤️
What brand were the hard boiled ones in the picture at the top. I love bright yellow yolks. My local egg farmer is selling eggs for $7/dozen. Our stores were low on eggs so I bit the bullet and had them drop off a carton only to find small chicken eggs with really pale yolks. I was disappointed.
Hey Sue! We don’t recall the brand as that is an older picture, however we do have tips for making perfect hard boiled eggs like those over here. 🥰
Last week, WalMart had a dozen large eggs for $2.87, so I added one to my pick up order. The next morning, they were out, so they subbed the 18 count for the same price, about 16¢ per egg. I felt like I hit the jackpot with that one.
Oh wow! Jackpot for sure, Scarlet! Glad you could grab even more for that same low price! 💃🎉
I found Good&Gather large Grade A at Target here in Frisco, TX for $3.99. Lock&Lock makes a GREAT (sorry about the caps) egg container that helps your eggs stay fresher longer.
I have found the 60 count eggs at Walmart to be the cheapest in my area. I can usually go through all of them, or I can split them with my brother’s household if it might be too much. I keep some old 18 count cartons to repackage the eggs and get rid of the big box.
Buttera 2.11 a doz medium
Walmart had the 5 dozen box for 10.48 two days ago when I was there. Central Ohio
