Using coupons and finding deals is the simplest way to save money on everything you need, including chicken breasts. But, that may not be the right way to shop. In fact, you might want to avoid the grocery store completely when you are looking for the best price on chicken breasts.
Updated 6/26/18: Zaycon has closed it’s doors and no longer offers this service. Bummer.
The secret to always find a great price on chicken breasts and other meats is to shop at Zaycon. It is how our family saves money on chicken and other meats. It really is the best way we’ve found to get what we need for our family, without blowing our budget. I find that I get great deals on their meat, even when they don’t run promotional offers. They are always less than our local grocery store when it comes to their prices on chicken breasts. Once in a while, they extend some amazing offers that make their prices even more exciting!!! The best way to know for sure is to sign up for their alerts. They will send you an email when there is a deal on chicken, bacon, or any other products. That way, you can take advantage of their great offer. In fact, if you always shop their sale, you’ll get some of the best prices on meat. Make sure you sign up for a FREE Zaycon account. You can check the prices and availability in your area. If you can, try to wait for a while before you place an order. We’ve seen chicken breasts drop as low as $1.69/lb through some of their sales. It’s the perfect time to stock up and save.
HOW TO GET THE BEST DEAL ON CHICKEN
HOW DOES IT WORK? Zaycon is an online retailer, but you don’t really get your meat online. Instead, you place an order for the items you need. Then, you drive to a pickup location. The truck is there and you line up and drive through to get your items. When you reach the check-in point, you give them your name and they find your items on the truck and put it directly into your vehicle for you. By cutting out the middleman – the store – you are able to get better discounts on the items you need. The only thing is you have to drive and pick it up. But really, at these low prices, it is well worth it.
WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW? Since they are bringing the products to you, that means they can only have a certain amount of each product on their truck. For that reason, when you get ready to shop, I recommend that you click on the Shop by Location link at the top of the page, rather than Shop by Product. When you do, the locations close to your zip code will show for you. You can click on each one to see what is available for purchase from each of the trucks which will be in your area soon. As they sell out, you will not be able to buy. However, you can just select a different location and go there instead. So don’t give up if what you need is sold out! Here is a shot of one of the trucks near me. You can see that I can buy 40 lbs of chicken breasts and pay $1.89 a pound. For me, even $1.89/lb is less than I pay at my local store (where it is usually at least $2+ per pound).
HOW MUCH DO I NEED TO ORDER? You are buying in bulk, which means you will end up with a lot of chicken — 40 lbs. Other meats also come in larger amounts as well. You can split these out into smaller packages and have meat that will last you for months. If this is too much for your family, split an order with a friend or family member you will both get the opportunity to get a great deal. Make sure you visit Zaycon and get signed up! You never know when the next smokin’ hot sale will show up in your inbox!
