If you’re looking for a Thanksgiving turkey to arrive by the big day and keep your budget intact, we found a turkey deal that’s so good it almost seems like a mistake. Amazon (via Whole Foods) is. And they’ll arrive well before Thanksgiving. The catch, if you want to call it that, is there’s a $10 delivery fee, but $22 for a 12-pound bird is still an excellent deal, and $34 for a massive 24-pounder is even better.
Note: Inventory for this turkey deal may be limited by region, as some folks from our team are seeing this listed as unavailable.
A couple more things to note: We haven’t tried these birds, but can confirm they are raised antibiotic-free and fed a 100% vegetarian diet (which usually means lots of corn and soy). Surprisingly, at least to me, they’re also animal welfare-certified, which is one of the most rigorous standards for raising meat and usually carries a higher price tag. (You can.)
We dug through the reviews, and while the birds have a good score overall, not everyone who bought one loved the taste or texture. So buyer beware. But at this price, you could grab one now to do a test run and grab another in time for Thanksgiving if it measures up.
