Get your turkey for less this Christmas with top tips for grabbing a bargain bird

CHRISTMAS is going to be a little different this year.

You can expect smaller gatherings — and smaller turkeys to be on the table.

In fact, sales of frozen turkey crowns for three to four people have increased by 230 per cent.

But there is nothing small about these bargains. Here’s how your reduced-size turkey can save you big bucks. 

JOINT AT THE HIP: A 780g frozen butter-basted turkey joint that serves four people is £6 at Asda, but you can bag one for £4 at Tesco if you scan your Clubcard at the checkout.

SAVE: £2

CROWN THE WINNER: At Morrisons, a small frozen turkey breast crown for four to five people is a whopping £14.

But if you’re going to pay that price, I’d recommend going large with the Bernard Matthews Golden Norfolk basted turkey crown at Iceland. It serves 11-14 and is currently on offer for £14, down from £20.

SAVE: £6 at Iceland and get a larger turkey crown

WHOLE BIRD: A small basted frozen whole turkey will set you back £12 at Tesco. But if you shop at Asda, you can bag one for £9.50. Both serve four to seven people.

SAVE: £2.50

TOTALLY ROARSOME: If the little ones are not keen on having regular slices of turkey on their plates, there’s no need for them to miss out. Why not buy a bag of Bernard Matthews turkey dinosaurs?

A 450g bag is on offer at Sainsbury’s for £1.50, down from £2. That way they’re still getting their turkey serving.

SAVE: 50p
