Tops Beef Meal Deal Price Comparison to Wegmans and Aldis
Tops Beef Meal Deal Price Comparison
Tops Markets often has what they call Family Meal Deals. Often times everyone in our coupon groups say how they think they are not a very good deal. I have to say that personally, I find some to be good and others not so good. And that’s only because of the items they offer for free. Many times I cannot use those items. I think it’s a great offer that Tops gives it’s customers. So I decided that I would do a comparison to Wegmans like I have done before in the past (read about my Tops vs Wegmans post). I have also done previous meal deal price comparisons. I will try to match up items for items the best I can based on what the stores offer.
Tops this week has the Ground Beef Meal Deal. You purchase a large big pack of beef at $3.99 per lb and you can get the 8 items below for FREE. They claim that the items that are free are over a $17 value. Depending on how your store packs the beef packages, you may be able to find a package for around as low as $17 – $18.
Ground Beef Family Meal Deal – Buy 1 Big Pack of Ground Beef usually priced $18 – $22 at TOPS

- Fresh Express Shredded Lettuce
- Tops Cheese Slices
- Tops Hamburger or Hot Dog Rolls
- Sugardale Hot Dogs
- Tops Deli Salad or Cole Slaw
- Tops Premium Side Dish
- Tops Canned Tomatoes
- Tops 12 pk bottled water
TOTAL for Big Pack Hamburger and 8 items = as low as $18 (many will probably be more near $20, even still not bad!) but to compare to the 6 lbs prices I did below, it would cost $23.94.
Here are the current prices of items at Wegmans that I found comparable to the items on sale at Tops this week with the meal deal.
