Best Ham, Turkey and Prime Rib prices for your Christmas meal

Buying a ham, turkey or a prime rib is usually the biggest expense in your holiday meal. If you plan to purchase one between now and Christmas, I thought I’d lay out all your best options available. All the deals run through Tuesday, except Fred Meyer and Target will change when a new ad comes out Sunday. Leave a comment if you know of a deal I left out!

  1. If you are local, Ralphs Thriftway is offering a free 7-8 lb ham with $100 purchase. It’s a Hemplers one with no gluten and no MSG, two things we cannot have. So, while Ralphs Thriftway is pricey, I may do a big shop there to get this deal. 12/16-12/22

    Does anyone have the price for prime rib at Costco or Cash & Carry?
