For years I have bought 99% of our meat cuts at Aldi. When my husband and I started shopping at Costco we were intrigued by the meat department.
I admit, the Costco meat department is pretty impressive. You can get all the typical as well as some unique cuts of meat.
As a mom sticking to a strict grocery budget, we tend to stick with chicken, ground beef and roasts. I tend to plan meals where the meat can stretch, and we will have leftovers.
There is nothing better than walking into the meat department and seeing those sale stickers. Get yourself a deep freezer and stock up on the sales. But, what about without sales? The question today is…who has the best prices on meat?
Let’s get to the Aldi Vs. Costco- Who has the best meat prices?

NOTE: Aldi Chicken breast is not trimmed for you at all. Costco chicken breast is trimmed and cut for you very nicely. Is the extra price of Costco chicken breast worth that time savings for you?
The comparisons you see today are all regular pricing. While you sometimes see markdowns at Aldi they are not typical. Costco routinely will have select cuts of meat on significant special. Our last trip we snagged 4 T-bone steaks at 50% off!
I am impressed today with Aldi and their prices.
Will these price comparisons make you think twice about where to pick up your meat next shopping trip?
