No. Ground beef does not age well. You cannot compare it to aging a whole cut of beef or even steaks. Stick with fresh ground beef to avoid partial decomposition, bacterial growth, etc.

When you write "aged ground beef", do you mean ground from aged beef or do you mean aged after it's ground?

In that case, I would base my personal decision on which ever one was cheaper. As you don't often have them I doubt you would notice the difference in taste.
However if the price is the same, I would choose the aged ones.
