The Cheapest Thanksgiving Meal Bundles In 2023

With all these deals to be had, there's no reason to skip the big feast.

Another holiday season is here, and grocery inflation, though leveling off, is still making the idea of preparing a full feast sound dauntingly expensive. On the bright side, major grocery chains recognize this hurdle and are throwing together deals left and right to lure shoppers throughout the holiday season.

There's always a way to make Thanksgiving dinner work, whether it involves ordering takeout, going potluck style, or choosing the right bulk deals on food. Here are the best deals on grocery store Thanksgiving bundles to fill your table on a budget.

ALDI

Once again, anyone looking to make Thanksgiving dinner on a budget can turn to the steep discounts ALDI is offering on all products traditionally associated with a holiday feast. The grocery chain is offering price reductions of up to 50% on over 70 holiday season products, including gravy, potatoes, green beans, cranberries, and pumpkin pie, as well as staples such as butter and flour. The price reductions will run through the end of the year, and ALDI estimates customers will be able to include three more people at their table for the same price, thanks to the discounts. (Don't forget the wine.)

This specific deal is strictly for new users who sign up. However, existing users can work toward earning the cash-back offer on turkey or sides by redeeming other offers in the app.

Target

For an intimate Thanksgiving meal under $25, Target is offering this meal bundle with a turkey for less than $1 per pound and an assortment of sides and desserts for under $5 each. The entire bundle includes a 10-pound frozen turkey, russet potatoes, green beans, mushroom soup, cranberry sauce, stuffing mix, and turkey gravy. For those that want to double the crowd at their table, Target suggests doubling the list to serve eight guests.

All of the items from the $25 bundle can be found on the Target website and ordered for delivery or pickup. Delivery orders can be as fast as one hour, but have a $35 required minimum and carry a $9.99 delivery fee unless you sign up for a membership with Target's delivery service provider, Shipt.

Walmart

Now until December 26, Walmart customers can choose from three different Thanksgiving meal bundles, each at a price comparable to what it would have cost to make the same meal in 2021:

  • An ingredient-focused basket for those who want to make dinner from scratch, including Thanksgiving turkey priced at less than $1 per pound, as well as ham (feeds 8-10 people)
  • A bundle of ready-to-bake items, including pumpkin pie and stuffing, good for a crowd of 8-10 people
  • A bundle of all private-label items that feeds six people
  • Whether your table is a side dish bonanza or traditional feast with a roasted bird at the center, there's a bundle or deal out there to help you make it happen on a budget.
