Honey Baked Ham coupons aren’t the only way to save

If you’ve ever had a spiral-sliced Honey Baked Ham, you know it’s not uncommon to pay more than $55-$60 or more for an eight-pounder with the bone-in.

Honey Baked Ham

With that in mind, here are some ways you can save the next time you want mo’ Honey for less money…

1. Watch for holiday sales

Right now, Honey Baked Ham is offering its Honeybaked Picnic Pack for end-of-the-summer festivities.

The $19.99 package includes the following:

  • ½ lb Ham Slices
  • ½ lb Turkey Slices
  • 1 lb Deli Side
  • 1 Dozen Kings Hawaiian Rolls

2. Buy a discounted gift card

Did you know it’s possible to buy gift cards for many popular restaurants and retailers at a deep discount from face value?

Sites like CardPool and GiftCardGranny connect buyers with resellers who got the gift card from somebody else, but don’t want to use it themselves.

Amazingly, you can save 30% off the face value of a pre-owned Honey Baked Ham gift card through right now.

The cards are guaranteed to work for one year after purchase, so this is a great time to stock up for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter, too!

cardpool, meanwhile, has even steeper discounts on Honey Baked Ham gift cards at up to 31% off face value!

3. Buy a “miscut”

Ever bought a T-shirt or a pair of socks that had some funky stitch work? Then you know you can get a big discount by buying irregulars.

The same thing holds true for Honey Baked Ham. Sometimes the store doesn’t slice the meat correctly. Rather than throwing it out, they will sell it to you at a discount.

reddit user Starfire66 offers the following advice for snagging these kinds of deals:

Most people don’t know this, but Honey Baked Hams sells “miscuts” at a substantial discount. Nothing at all wrong with them, except that the spiral cut pattern didn’t go perfectly. Stop in to the store and ask if they have any miscuts, and if they don’t, just keep stopping in when you have the time and get one of those. We always get one for the holidays this way, and it’s a lot cheaper than the full-priced ones.

Editors note: This may not available in all stores. Please check with your store to see if this is an option.

4. Join the Honey Baked Rewards program for freebies

Like a lot of other restaurants and retailers, Honey Baked has its own loyalty program.

When you join Honey Baked Rewards, you’ll get hooked up with a free Ham Classic and special offers all year long.

5. Buy a newspaper

You know those grocery coupon circulars from RedPlum and SmartSource that come in the Sunday paper? They will sometimes have a full-page ad with coupons for Honey Baked.

Check it out next time you’re at the supermarket.

6. Watch your mailbox

Honey Baked will typically do a blanket mailing a few times a year around Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter.

If you live in a zip code near a store, you’re likely to already be on the mailing list. Check your mailbox for a standalone mailer and save some money.

You may also find coupons like these (see below) in the junk mail you’re used to throwing out. So give a second look before you toss out those circulars!
