Add this to your list of things to be thankful for: Walmart and Aldi have rolled back prices on classic Thanksgiving ingredients to pre-inflationary levels. Here’s what you can expect to find at each of the discount grocery retailers.
According to a company press release, shoppers can get “this year’s Thanksgiving meal at last year’s price.” Than means lower costs for turkey, ham, potatoes and stuffing. Convenience items are included, like ready-to-heat mac and cheese or freshly made pumpkin pie. The rollback will also save you money on your Christmas feast: Prices will be good through Dec. 26, 2022.
You can see all the roll-backed prices here, but some of the biggest savings include:
- A frozen Honeysuckle turkey for 98 cents per pound. The average cost for a frozen turkey was $1.24 per pound the first week of November, according to the USDA.
- Eight ounces of pecan halves for $4.52 instead of $6.34
- A 12-ounce bag of fresh cranberries for $1.50 instead of $2.18
- A 3-pound bag of yellow onions for $2 instead of $3.18
- Pillsbury frozen pie crusts for $2.87 instead of $4.24
- A 2-pound bag of baby carrots for $1.48 instead of $1.92
In addition, Walmart+ members can save even more on holiday necessities through Walmart Rewards. The new program provides access to over $1,000 in Walmart Reward offers on hundreds of items from grocery to household essentials. The rewards can be used on future online or in-store purchases at Walmart.
Discount grocery chain Aldi is going even further with its price rewind program — all the way back to 2019. Shoppers can get discounts of up to 30% on holiday favorites including appetizers, desserts, sides and beverages.
The price rollback includes brie cheese, prosciutto, cornbread stuffing, award-winning wines, mini quiches, fresh brown-and-serve rolls and apple pie, to name a few. A Thanksgiving Price Rewind icon in local ads and throughout the store identify the groceries that are getting the retro price treatment, which is good through Nov. 29, 2022.
