According to a company press release, shoppers can “get this year’s Thanksgiving meal at last year’s price.” Then means lower costs for turkey, ham, potatoes and stuffing. Convenience items are included, such as ready-made mac and cheese or freshly made pumpkin pie. The rollback will also save you money on your Christmas party: the prices will be good until December 26, 2022.

You can see all the rolled back prices here, but some of the biggest savings include:

  • A frozen honeysuckle turkey for 98 cents a pound. The average cost for a frozen turkey was $1.24 per pound in the first week of November, according to the USDA.
  • Eight grams half pecans for $4.52 instead of $6.34
  • A bag of 12 ounces fresh cranberries for $1.50 instead of $2.18
  • A 3 pound bag yellow onions for $2 instead of $3.18
  • Pillsbury frozen pie crusts for $2.87 instead of $4.24
  • A 2 pound bag baby carrots for $1.48 instead of $1.92

Plus, Walmart+ members can save even more on vacation essentials with Walmart Rewards. The new program provides access to more than $1,000 in Walmart Reward offers on hundreds of items from groceries to household essentials. The rewards can be used for future online or in-store purchases at Walmart.

Discount supermarket chain Aldi is taking its price rollback program even further — all the way back to 2019. Shoppers can get discounts of up to 30% on holiday favorites, including appetizers, desserts, sides and beverages.

The rollback includes brie, prosciutto, cornbread filling, award-winning wines, mini quiches, fresh bread rolls, and apple pie, to name a few. A Thanksgiving Price Rewind icon in local ads and throughout the store identifies the groceries getting the retro price treatment, which is good through Nov. 29, 2022.
