Cheap Generic Turkeys?

So who has the cheapest turkeys? It used to be you could get a turkey for $.19/lb with an extra $20 purchase at HEB (not that long ago), but the last 4-5 years it's been the "Buy an overpriced HEB brand ham for $3/lb and get a turkey for free". Which I don't really consider a good deal. Smithfield wet cured hams are $1.59-$1.79/lb for shank and butt, respectively.

Otherwise they're offering $.88/lb with $10 purchase, which would be the best deal. Or $1.19/lb regular price.

Randalls - I hate Randalls. So I have BIG problems spending an extra $50 there to get a turkey for $.59/lb.

Fiesta doesn't send me flyers even though I live within 3 miles. Nor do they post the ads on the website. So I rarely go there.

Restaurant Depot is $1.19/lb

Walmart - they don't even have flyers or specials, do they? It's just the usual "Everyday Low Quality" stuff - no gimmicks.

So what I'll probably do at the last minute is go to CostCo and get a rib roast or a fillet mignon butt and some sort of shellfish for Thanskgiving day. Then wait until a few days after Thanksgiving when fresh turkeys are being liquidated st $.29/lb. Just like the last two years. But I have to have sage-sausage cornbread stuffing cooked inside (or under) a bird on Thanksgiving, no matter what else. Even if I have to buy a chicken and spatchcock it over the stuffing.
