Target Is Offering an Entire Thanksgiving Meal at an Amazingly Affordable Price
Thanksgiving is nearly upon us, and that probably means we’re doing a whole lot of menu planning and shopping. While it’s probably tempting to eat out or find a spot to order Thanksgiving dinner to-go, there’s nothing quite like creating a whole Thanksgiving spread right at home. However, between running around different stores and the hefty price it’ll add up to when all is said and done, that can be an intimidating task.
But maybe all that holiday shopping can be a whole lot more streamlined than we realized. Target is now offering a complete Thanksgiving meal that comes out to under $25. That’s right — just $25!
Target’s $25 Thanksgiving Meal
If you’re not in the mood to cook an entire Thanksgiving meal, but still want to serve something tasty, Target’s Thanksgiving meal comes with seven pre-made items that make it much easier to enjoy a meal that won’t break the budget. Here’s what it includes.
- Good & Gather Premium Basted Young Turkey (Frozen) — 10 pounds
- Good & Gather Russet Potatoes — 5 pounds
- Good & Gather Cut Green Beans — 14.5 ounces
- Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup — 22 ounces
- Ocean Spray Jellied Cranberry Sauce — 14 ounces
- Stove Top Turkey Stuffing Mix — 6 ounces
- Heinz HomeStyle Roasted Turkey Gravy — 12 ounces
While all the cooking and prep will still be on you, it’s kind of nice to know all the ingredients can be bought in one place and not bust the budget, either.
This deal is offered at select Target locations across the country, except in Alaska and Hawaii. To get this meal, shoppers can add these items to their shopping cart either in-store or on the Target app for pickup. Keep in mind the $25 is pre-tax, so there may be a little extra with the total. These groceries are also available through the SNAP benefits program both in store, on Target.com, and in the app.
Don’t even have time to pick up these items? Target offers same-day delivery through Shipt. Orders have a $35 minimum, and free deliveries are offered to Shipt members for orders above $9.99.
Other Target Thanksgiving Offerings
Along with this $25 Thanksgiving steal, Target is offering a variety of other deals in case you’re in more of a cooking mood but want to keep things budget-friendly.
If you plan on roasting a turkey, Target will be selling turkey for less than $1 per pound. According to Michelin-star Chef Charlie Mitchell of Clover Hill — in partnership with Target — the best way to cook a 10-pound turkey is at 425°F for one to one-and-a-half hours. “High heat will add a beautiful color to the skin and keep the meat from drying out,” said Mitchell. “Let your turkey rest for at least one hour before carving — many rush this step! This helps to preserve the juices so it will not dry out.”
Target is also offering a variety of sides, desserts, and adult beverages for under $5. This includes the Good & Gather Caesar salad, macaroni and cheese, lemon basil rice, Favorite Day apple crisp ice cream, pumpkin spice soft sandwich cookies, mini pecan pies, and California Roots Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.
Dinner will be served, and with all that money you saved, you just may have some extra to splurge on a special dessert.
