Anyone planning to get post-holiday turkey on sale?  How low should it go and what days are best to look for it?  I have a deep freezer and have always gotten turkeys the day after Thanksgiving and made soup, broth, and stews from them, but I'm wondering if I can be more strategic with deals this year.

I will be looking too. I didn't find very good pre-holiday specials this year - last year one neighborhood store had free turkeys with a $100 purchase, another 19c/lb with $50 purchase. The cheapest I saw this year was $1.19/lb (with a coupon). I usually try to freeze 3 or 4 for the year (limits of my small freezer).

The best I've found, so far, is $.95 c a lb at Winn  Dixie here (with card.)  I bought one and will roast it and then make soup from the rest of it to freeze.
