We get lots of questions on how to save money on meat. While we usually just have to wait for a nice sale – there are a few more ways to save on meat. In this short video, join us as we hit the Meat Markdown jackpot – and go over a few tips to save even more!
- Stores start marking down meat as it nears it’s expiration date, in order to sell it quickly. Scan the meat cases for “$$$ Off” stickers to find these deals. If you can find “$$$ Off” stickers on an already low sale price – even better!
- Since a meat markdown sticker is a discount from the store, you can still stack a manufacturer coupon with it for even more savings.
- Even though it may be on or near the expiration date – if you’ve found a great deal you should still stock up. Buy it and either cook or freeze it right away. If buying raw meat – cook it and season it, the portion into freezer bags for easy taco nights, pasta nights, etc…. Lunchmeats will freeze pretty well in a freezer bag for later use.
