I was in Costco today and checked there. Their cryovac full tenderloin was $9.29. I did not see a label as to choice or prime. Probably ungraded.
Perhaps that $6.99 in my head came from a sale at the local Safeway a while back. They had what looked like about 8 inches from the end of a full tenderloin, in cryovac and I'm pretty sure it was $6.99. I cut them into steaks. We had a pair of them that night and they were not really all that good. Tender, but did not have as good a flavor as the porterhouse or sirloins we usually buy.
