Our friend who has a farm asked us if we would be interested in buying a quarter of beef sometime in October. She said that the cow will be butchered in February. My husband always wanted to buy beef that are farm raised so we said yes to their offer. We went to Sears because we saw a free delivery offer on their ad and I also have a $50 dollar gift card that I redeemed earlier from a survey site.
Anyway, we went there and talked to a sales representative but she told us that we can't use the gift card if we are going to avail the free delivery offer. I got annoyed pretty quick lol. She also told us that in order to avail the free delivery, we have to sign up for a sears card. So we dropped the idea of getting it from Sears. We went to Lowe's and found the same model for free delivery without any special terms plus my husband availed his 10% discount, so it all worked out good. We paid $514.21 for the freezer. I just thought that Sears would implement those type of conditions, it drive away customers.
We had 165 pounds of beef and we paid $363. It's $2.20 per pound of good meat plus the processing. It's definitely a cheaper way of buying beef these days considering how much the cost of beef nowadays.
