    Try BJs, Sams, or Costco.  In our area (central Maryland) BJs has whole beef tenderloin in cryovac at $6.99 per pound.  They cut off one inch thick steaks and sell those for about $12 per pound.

    I've never found it for 6.99 a pound! The cheapest I've ever seen the choice is 9.99 a pound, and the prime is 19.99 a pound. [​IMG]

    Yup, The 101st Squirrel Div. "Screamin' Rodents!"

    That Choice PR I posted the other day was $5.99 per pound. My son & I got 7 of them, about 5lbs each. Costco in NJ. His inlaws got them for us.

    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.

     OMG I saw VooDoo Donuts on either The Best Thing I Ever Ate or Unique Eats, not sure, but I decided I must visit that place before I die. What an awesome place! They had some pretty funky stuff. Love me some funky stuff, like weird Bears. I dunno.
