$100 for $400 worth of organic and naturally raised meat from The Butchers, inclusive of a $50 credit to the opening of Marlin's Fish Shop. Don't miss The Butchers 10th Anniversary, Deal of the Century!

I had to make a separate thread for this amazing "Deal of the Century" which arrived in my inbox today as I'm sure that some of you don't even read the other "Butchers" threads. This great deal deserves it's own thread, so here it is!

You can buy as many coupons as you want, there is no limit! Now is your chance to buy coupons for all the meat you can eat in a year!

Yeeeee----hah!!!

    1. People who buy into this deal, with all the info thats out there already about the Butchers, deserve no sympathy when they later come on here to complain. Plain and simple.

      1. Folks, as with the other thread about The Butchers coupon deal, we ask that the discussion stay focused on actual experiences with redeeming the coupon. Speculation about business practices will be removed.

        1. So many of us have: 1) had problems with this store 2) problems with the quality (and trustworthyness of the type of meat -natural, organic or just pricey conventional? 3) problems with terms of availability of meats and limits on WHAT store products you're allowed to buy 4) and in my case, how dirty and empty the store was when I visited.

          It is both surprising and disappointing that WebPiggy would repeat another offer from these guys! It just looks like a "cash grab" by a floundering business. Those prices are not reflective of the "costs of goods" if those goods are as advertised (natural, organic). I certainly don't trust them!

          WebPiggy at least did respond to my complaint to my satisfaction and I've now enjoyed other deals/services with reputable businesses through WebPiggy.

            This is on their website this morning:

            "We have been asked by many people why we continue to do these voucher deals. We agreed to do a specific # of deals and signed contracts so we are under contractual obligation. Once these contracts have been fulfilled we will no longer take part in these vouchers deals."

            So, how come another deal?

            1. re: Helen

              Isn't it clear? They are saying that they have not fulfilled the contract they signed up for yet. I wonder why they even signed up for whatever they did.

                Sorry, but reading this surely this is a new deal? If I'm wrong, then I apologise:)

                1. re: Helen

                  It's a new deal, but it appears they are running it because they have some contract to run a certain number of those deals on Webpiggy and they have not run them all yet. That must mean the deal of the millenium is yet to come.

              2. re: Helen

                I CHer or RFDer mentioned they overheard staff telling a customer a few weeks ago that "just wait, there is another amazing deal coming out" or something to that effect so they must have known this deal was in the pipeline for a while. At least customers buying this deal know it is a 5 day wait to order meat and they can only go Tuesday to Friday.

                As per what the CH Team mentioned ealier, my personal experience was "okay" but the meat pricing has gone up significantly since pre-deals and in my personal opinion the deal isn't worth taking the risk.

                As for their product, their bacon was just okay, no better than what I have had from any other butcher. Their NY Striploin was okay but the steaks were cut inconsistently and not worth the premium price.

                As they say, "if it looks too good to be true"...

                EDIT: They also added a line that a portion of the proceeds will go to support the Cancer Society. Why don't they say how much per voucher? Like $1, $5, ?

            2. I am extremely disappointed with Webpiggy for running this "deal". Shame on them. Shame.
