      Thanks so much for mentioning that deal, Tracy! We’ve added it to the post! 🤗🦃

Also, keep in mind that Winn-Dixie is advertising Smithfield spiral hams for $2.19/lb.

    I thought Aldi was advertising “Price Rewind – 2019 Prices” for Thanksgiving, but I’m not sure that included turkeys.

  4. Kelly

    I don’t see the free turkey deal on Kroger ad? How do you get it? Ty!

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      So sorry for the confusion, Kelly! When clicking through the link and entering my zip code, I do see the free turkey offer available or a 99¢/lb offer. It does seem that some Kroger deals may vary by location. I’ve added a note to that offer. Thanks for letting us know what you’re seeing! ❤️🦃
