Thanksgiving dinner is a cozy and delicious meal that we all love and look forward to every year. But it also takes a lot of time and effort to prepare.

If you want to save yourself some hassle this year, you might be interested in Costco’s ready-made meal kit that you can order online and get delivered right to your door. The only catch is that it costs $200.

Update! The price has just been lowered to $149.99 as of 10/30.

Costco Thanksgiving Meal Kit Contents

Costco’s meal kit comes with everything you need to serve up to eight people a traditional Thanksgiving feast.

The kit includes:

  • 5-pound turkey breast
  • 1.5 pounds mashed potatoes
  • 1.5 pounds mac and cheese
  • 2 pounds stuffing
  • 2 pounds sweet corn
  • 2 pounds green beans
  • 1 jar cranberry relish
  • 8 ounces turkey gravy
  • 12 dinner rolls
  • 8-inch apple pie
  • 8-inch pumpkin pie

All the items are delivered frozen and just need to be reheated before serving.

Place Your Order Soon

Costco recommends that you place your order by Nov. 5 to ensure timely delivery between Nov. 8-17. This will give you enough time to thaw the items properly. Remember: Thanksgiving Day is November 23rd this year.

The Big Question

Is Costco’s meal kit worth the $200 price tag? That depends on how much you value convenience over cost. Cooking a Thanksgiving meal from scratch can be expensive, but not as expensive as Costco’s offer. A Thanksgiving dinner for 10 could cost you, on average, from $65-100 (or much more) depending on where you live and how extravagant the spread. That’s still much cheaper than $200. So, if you’re on a budget, you might want to look for other ways to save money on your Thanksgiving meal.

Of course Costco has great prices on all the ingredients you need to make the dinner from scratch on your own – if you have time time and inclination.

However, if you have the cash and don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen this year, Costco’s meal kit might be a good choice. You don’t have to go shopping or deal with crowded stores. You can just stay home and heat up the food to serve your family, making for a stress-free way to enjoy your Thanksgiving if you’re not into cooking.
