Few things say family holiday gatherings as much as a meal from The Honey Baked Ham Company. With locations in 40 states, Honey Baked Ham has been a fixture at holiday dinner tables and picnic tables since 1957.
But it isn’t always exactly cheap to put one of their hams or turkeys on your table!
Tips to Save on Honey Baked Ham
If you’ve ever had a spiral-sliced Honey Baked Ham, you know it’s not uncommon to pay more than $60 or more for an eight-pounder with the bone-in.
Here are a few tips to save money before your next Honey Baked Ham order.
1. 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?
Warehouse clubs often sell restaurant and retailer gift cards at a discount. For example, you might be able to find two $50 gift cards for only $79.99 at Costco (check your local store to confirm the Honey Baked Ham gift cards are available near you).
2. 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 meat gets sliced incorrectly. Rather than throwing it out, the store will sell that cut it to you at a discount.
Reddit user Starfire66 offers the following advice for snagging these kinds of deals:
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.
3. Join the HoneyBaked Rewards Program
Like a lot of other restaurants and retailers, The Honey Baked Ham Company has its own loyalty program.
When you join HoneyBaked Rewards, you’ll receive 10% off your first online shipping order and special offers all year-long.
This is a great way to score a discount if you’re not near a store or need to have an order shipped to someone else as a holiday gift.
4. 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.
5. Watch Your Mailbox
Honey Baked typically does a blanket mailing a few times a year: around Easter, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
If you live in a ZIP code near a store, you may already be on the mailing list. Check your mailbox for a mailer that could save you some money.
