During the pandemic, some of Costco’s grocery items have gone up in price or suffered from âshrinkflationâ. However, the warehouse chain frequently puts groceries on sale, and meat is currently on the list.
Meat is one of many staples whose price has skyrocketed amid the pandemic. Demand soared as more Americans began cooking at home, and labor shortages and production delays subsequently caused shortages and higher prices.
But Costco currently has several meat options on sale, which is helpful if you’re trying to keep your grocery bill down amid record inflation. Without further ado, here are seven types of meat you can get for cheap in the warehouse chain right now. (And for more, here are 6 things you’ll see at Costco this year.)
This is an example of a type of meat that follows the trend “the more you buy, the more you save”. According to instagram, Costco offers pork tenderloin options that range in price from $2.48 to $6.21 per pound. Since Costco sells items in bulk, you get a lot in each package, at least a few pounds! If you compare that to current prices at Target (about $5 a pound) and walmart (about $4 a pound or more), buying pork tenderloin at Costco is a good deal right now.
With frequent sales, an item on your grocery list is likely to be cheaper at Costco. Included in the most recent series of Member Savings are two Amylu meat products: 46-ounce cans of Teriyaki Pineapple Chicken Meatballs and 2.5-pound packages of Antibiotic-Free Chicken Sausage Links. Both are $3.50 off until February 27âand meatballs are on this list of dietitian-approved foods.
As if one option wasn’t enough, another variety of Teriyaki Chicken Pineapple Meatballs is on sale for $3.50 off at Costco right now. The Aidells version (also 46 ounces) is “very tasty”, according to a critic.
Bringing home bacon is cheaper right now, thanks to Costco. The 3-pound thick-cut variety from the warehouse chain Kirkland Signature Brand is $15.49, or about $5.16 a pound. It’s cheaper than similar options at sam’s club, Targetand walmart.
an impressive 106 million chickens were sold at Costco last yearâa record for the warehouse chain. Meat prices are climbing as supermarkets grapple with inflation and supply chain issues. However, the tags on Costco rotisserie chickens have read $4.99 since 2009.
Like other meat selections at Costco, rotisserie chicken is heavy, which means you end up with enough meat to stretch over multiple meals. To inspire you, here are 45+ soup and chili recipes you can make with a Costco rotisserie chicken, plus 6 ways to dress one up, according to chefs and experts.
One of the benefits of buying ground beef in bulk at Costco? You don’t have to worry about paying more for another pound next week if the price goes up. Plus, this package of ground beef is separated into 1-pound sections, making it easy to freeze and store what you’re not using for a later date. Right now you can get it at Costco or on the channel’s website for around $15.
During the savings event currently taking place in warehouses and online, you can also withdraw $5 on a 3-pound bag of Atlantic salmon raised at the Kirkland Signature Farm. Although Costco members recently noticed changes to the nutrition label, this fish contains over 30 grams of protein per serving. There is nothing of fish about this deal.
