Kroger is offering 37 cents per LB with a $25 purchase.  Martins has 39 cents per LB - but they also offer a 20 cent discount per gallon on gas with the store coupon.  I don't really need two turkeys, but I might get them anyway, because of the prices. (in Richmond, VA)

I haven't looked yet because I won't be buying any ..... the "in charge" ladies at church will be doing that.
I might buy myself a little bone-in breast.

nancy         i used to do that            but they are never on sale here anymore
i prefer the breast also            but i can usually buy a whole 12 lb turkey for way less than half and you also get the giblets
i've been cutting it in half between white and dark  and stewing the dark parts for broth and freezing it in bags until my cleaning lady takes it off my hands to make soups, pot pies, etc.      she's very happy for the dark meat because that's what her family prefers
you could use this to make a large pot of soup for a church dinner, or for the firemen   or share it with another family     i know you are always cooking for others
and if i can cut it in half with my hands  i know you can  too
i just cut the skin between the thighs with scissors and then bend until the spine breaks  and use a large knife to finish cutting thru the backbone

It varies according to which chain you shop in.  I have always gone for a "fresh" turkey, and I purchase it from the meat market that I buy all my meats (actually chicken, etc.....don't eat red meat) and this year the price is $3.29 per pound.  It is a bit high, but all the prep work is done at the market.  When I pick it up, it is ready to put in the oven....cleaned completely.....no pin feathers, etc.  I figure it is worth it.  And, the cost is split between my hubby and I, my daughter, and my son.  So.....it evens out and doesn't put the cost burden on anyone.  Just the daughter.....she cooks it every year!  YAY!!  Everyone also fills in the side dishes.  It always works out, and we all have a great day!

Well -------- I wonder if some sale will come.  I went shopping this morning in that super-nice grocery in a neighboring town,   The store turkeys were .59 and Butterball were .79.  No additional purchase necessary.

Nikki - thanks for all the great ideas.  Stock made with the dark meat sounds good.   This morning I bought a lot of beef soup bones.

Hi Nellie just a thought I bought myself one of those small saws the one with the removeable blade and this is what I use for sawing through pork roasts,beef roast or pork roast anything with bones it works better than a knife.I was always good at cutting myself with the chicken breast bone.This saw is only used for food,The blade is removable and easy to wash and keep clean.

that might be handy
but i don't cut the breast bone          i just separate the light and dark          and cook the breast whole

if you cut all the thigh down and around w/ scissors  you can just bend it backwards until the spine snaps  and there is not enough left to cause much trouble

Gee, the cheapest I've seen around here(Chicago suburbs) was GFS with a $25 purchase.  Most of the grocery stores are 79 cents to 99 cents a pound with anywhere from $30 to $100 added purchase.  Since I have no room in my freezer for one, I'll just have to wait until the last minute to buy either a whole turkey or a turkey breast.  Could've sworn I had one in the freezer already lol.

Here in the LA area, the cheapest is $15 for a Butterball, 16 - 24 pounder, with a $25 purchase. Target has Butterball's for $.99/lb. I have to make a Costco run on Thursday and will check their prices. A few years ago the stores offered BOGO for Thanksgiving turkeys, with the idea that we would give the second turkey to the Food Pantry or Homeless Shelter. They no longer make that offer.

 I went shopping here today & the best deal was buy $25.00 worth of groceries & get the turkey for 99 cents a pound. I bought a 25 pounder. I made room for some of it in the freezer & if there wasn't room for it i would have made people eat my way clear! Laughing  I'm absolutely nutty for turkey! I see turkey soup. Turkey meatballs. Turkey meatloaf. Turkey enchiladas. Turkey...
