We have great news for all of those that like to get better quality meats for MUCH lower than the grocery store through basically a fresh meat co-op. For the first time ever, you can now grab fresh chicken tenderloins for a super sweet price.
This chicken is on sale for $2.19 per lb. But since this is a brand new product, they are offering an introductory price of only $1.93 per lb. with the coupon code: TENDERDEAL through 11/4.
Now that we have covered what the deal is, you may be wondering what on earth I am talking about!
Well, this deal is being offered through Zaycon Fresh Foods – a nationwide, widely popular option for much higher quality fresh meat selections than the grocery store – but at a price that is very often 30-50% less than the grocery store everyday.
You can already buy better quality meats for 30-50% less by purchasing in bulk and cutting out the middle man, plus grab another 10% off your bulk order right now through November 4th! This is a HUGE opportunity to stock your freezers.
This has been our main source of Salmon, Chicken and some beef for the past several years. Their salmon offering is the Wild Alaskan Caught Salmon, which is the Salmon you want to purchase and easily runs $12.99+ per pound in the grocery store as compared to the farmed Salmon for $7.99 per pound in the grocery store. Well, through Zaycon, we can get the $12.99 equivalent Salmon for $6.99!
Chicken is also another one of our family’s main source of protein and so you know that I get super excited when I can purchase a better quality chicken.
Now….let me explain how this works in a few bullet points:
- It’s only available a few times per year – each type of meat is offered about twice a year.
- You order now for a pickup in the future – usually 2-4 months ahead of time. Yes, you will be ordering now for a future pickup (in this case, ordering in November for February pickup).
- It’s only available in bulk – which is great for families with freezer storage OR 2 – 3 families sharing a case that don’t have freezer storage.
- You pick it up at the specified local location, not at a store, warehouse, etc. A refrigerated delivery truck arrives in your local area and parks in the parking lot. You drive up, roll down your window and give them your name, pop the trunk of your vehicle and they will load it in! You don’t even have to get out! It super simple, other than driving to the pick-up location. Most locations are within 5-10 minutes.
So in the end, it’s like a bulk, meat co-op! At least this is how you can think of it!
If it’s not sold in the grocery stores, how do I get it?
The way that this works is that you place your order online and then you will pick up your order from a local pick-up site as they are delivered to the area fresh in a cold truck. For example, the chicken comes right from the processor and is not frozen beforehand, so it is super fresh. The pick-up spot is usually within a few minute drive of your home and they are in a parking lot of a private business/organization (like a church parking lot) and the pick-up time for your area will be on a certain date and a small window of time (usually 30 minutes) on that day.
Here’s some example pictures from our last pick-up:
They have many different offerings right now, and whatever prices are listed, you can get an additional 10% off with coupon code: TENDERDEAL through the link HERE
During this tenderloin sale, they are also offering their signature chicken breast sale. This is a great deal on sale for $1.69 a lb. and also a new offering of whole natural chickens for $1.59 a lb.
Note that the tenderloins will drop to $1.93 per lb. in your cart when you use coupon code: TENDERDEAL at checkout!
As you can see, they are some great chicken deals right now. As an example of our normal order, we often get one-two 40-lb. case boxes as this is pretty much the only chicken we have. We also have a growing family and our little kids are getting bigger, so we are starting to need to make more per meal. One 40 lb. box will last our family for about 2-3 months.
We freeze half of the chicken raw in ziplocs and the other box we cook it all up and chop it up and have cooked cubed or shredded chicken which makes dinner so much easier as this is always the hardest part for me (defrosting and cooking the meat). So the days I have very little time, the cooked chicken is the answer.
And…we use our KitchenAid mixer to shred the chicken in seconds, making the prep work very minimal!
This last batch, I also made 30 dump chicken meals for the crockpot with different themes: American, Hawaiian, Italian, Chinese and Mexican themed dump chicken meals. We have so much enjoyed these freezer meals, especially when we just “dump” them into the crockpot. I am planning to share these recipes with you so that you can also make freezer dump chicken crock pot meals. I will be making these same ones and some other dump chicken recipes just so we have a lot of variety in our freezer and a lot to share with you, so you can pick and choose which freezer meal recipes you want to make.
We highly encourage you to look into this and to place your orders soon as they sell out of this product. One time, I waited too long and the locations that were 3, 15, 25 minutes away were sold out and I had to go with the fourth option that was 45 minutes away, when I literally had an option up the road. It was still worth the 45 minute drive, however, I don’t wait any longer because I want to pick-up close to home and order before they sell out.
Head to the Zaycon Site HERE and register (or log-in if already a member).
You have to be registered to see the prices, pickup and delivery details and dates for your area and additional details.
Don’t miss this event as it is only open for orders the next few weeks or until they sell out and then it will be gone again for a while!
