Amazon Cuts Prices At Whole Foods

Whole Foods Market and Amazon have announced a new round of price cuts on some of their bestselling grocery items, just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday.

“These are the latest new lower prices in our ongoing integration and innovation with Amazon, and we’re just getting started,” said John Mackey, Whole Foods Market co-founder and CEO. “In the few months we’ve been working together, our partnership has proven to be a great fit. We’ll continue to work closely together to ensure we’re consistently surprising and delighting our customers while moving toward our goal of reaching more people with Whole Foods Market’s high-quality, natural and organic food.”

Customers will be able to purchase select organic ($3.49/lb) and no antibiotic ($2.49/lb) turkeys at reduced prices. Prime members will see the prices go down to $2.99/lb for organic and $1.99/lb for no antibiotic, while supplies last. To purchase those discount turkeys, customers must go to Amazon.com/turkey to get the necessary coupon to present when they go to physically pick up their Thanksgiving birds.

Grocery savings will also range across chicken breasts, shrimp and holiday favorites like canned pumpkin, organic broccoli, 1lb. organic salad mixes, organic russet potatoes and organic sweet potatoes.

All of these price cuts are in addition to the reduced prices that customers have already seen from Amazon’s first round of price reductions.

Amazon’s acquisition of Whole Foods Market closed in August 2017. Today’s new lower prices and collaborative retail programs are another step forward in the integration between the companies.
