Grocery store meat counter bulk discount?

  1. Grocery store meat counter bulk discount?


    Anyone here have success with getting a good discount for buying a lot in bulk at a grocery store meat counter? Only places around me I know of that have the meat counters are Smiths, Vons and Whole Foods. I typically can grab beef for $2.50 a lb (80/20) or sometimes Smiths has 85/15 for the same price. Next trip I was going to see if I could get any deal if I bought 15 lbs at once, I'd be willing to buy more than that even. I just wanted to see if anyone had luck with doing this. Chicken I get cheap already at <$2 a lb for breasts. Mostly trying to get the best deal on beef since it is a major source of my protein intake and typically I eat a pound a day so any bit saved helps considering my hours at work are very unstable right now.


  2. I'd try mom and pop places,farmers they should be willing to work with you

  5. Not sure of any small local places around me but I will see if I can find any. Live in the desert so not really any farms around.

    I don't get what was so "LMAO" about it, just looking for feedback since I could make use of buying in bulk amounts...

  7. I get a great discount on Bison meat @ a neighborhood meat market. You just gotta talk to the owner and tell him each week or every other day you are going to purchase so-and-so amount of meat and work out a deal

  8. Hmmmm... never thought of dealing with a farmer straight up. I like it though - make a deal and cut out the middle man.

    I just look for deals aT BJ's/Casco/Stop&Shop. S&S will usually have some lean cut for a good price but nothing around $2.50!

    Not necessarily a farmer. It cAn just bs a mom and pop shop "private" meat business. Pretty much anything other than going to commercialized places

  10. There are a couple local meat markets I was able to find near me so I might check it an see. I stocked up this week at Smiths though because of a sale, got about 14 lbs of 85/15 beef for about $38. Very good deal and doubt I'll find any better.

  11. buy a whole cow from a sale barn and get er butchered.... save a s***load, hope you have a massive freezer tho lol.
