KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Shoppers can expect to spend more on turkeys this Thanksgiving according to the Missouri Department of Agriculture.

The office said higher prices are because of higher demand and inflation.

There are a few ways to save on a turkey this November.


Hy-Vee locations are once again offering a deal surrounding turkeys just in time for Thanksgiving.

Buy a 6-7 lb. Hormel Cure 81 boneless ham at $5.99 per lb. and get a free Honeysuckle white frozen turkey.

Hy-Vee has offered this annual deal to shoppers for about a decade, but just like everything else this year, it is more expensive.

In the past Hy-Vee has charged $3.99 per lb. for the ham instead of $5.99 per lb.

Honeysuckle frozen turkeys are priced about $1.69 per lb. for anyone buying just the turkey.


Put those points to good use!

Price Chopper shoppers earn points every time they shop, plus extra points for buying certain items.

You may be able to get a free ham, free turkey, free sides, a free pumpkin pie, and free snacks, depending on the number of points you have to redeem.

Check your cartwheel to see if there are any deals to add to clip. You may have a 20% off grocery pickup offer.

Plus, remember to pay with your red card for an extra 5% off your entire grocery bill.
