Tops Vs. Aldi Meal Deal Edition 6/13

One of the things I love about saving money is choosing the store that gives me a better price. If you agree be sure to click around the blog I have lots of price comparisons for retailers in Western New York.

This week we have a meal deal at Tops Markets featuring ground beef. Many times the meat is expensive but something magically happens when you add in the 11 free items. If you missed the other meal deal comparisons you can check those out here. Spoiler alert: Tops was cheaper!

So let’s see what we have for this week shall we?

Let’ start by looking at what you get in the meal deal valid at Tops Markets 6/12-6/18. For price comparison the retail price will be next to the item.
