Amazon and Whole Foods Market announced Tuesday (November 13) deals on turkey for Thanksgiving.
In a press release, Amazon and Whole Foods said that starting Nov. 14, all customers will be able to purchase select organic ($3.49/lb.) and no antibiotic ($2.49/lb.) turkeys, and Prime members will save even more on turkeys ($2.99/lb. organic; $1.99/lb. no antibiotic). The eCommerce giant said customers who are not yet Prime members can receive $20 off their next Whole Foods Market in-store purchase of $20 or more when they sign up for Prime. The offer runs through November 22 while supplies last. Customers can reserve their turkeys in advance at wholefoodsmarket.com, noted the companies in the press release. Customers who place their orders online in advance will get the lower prices when they check out in the store.
“This Thanksgiving, Whole Foods Market and Amazon are working together to deliver exceptional value and quality to all our customers, with even more savings for Prime members,” Whole Foods Market President and Chief Operating Officer A.C. Gallo said in the press release. “We want to be the go-to destination for both delicious and high-quality food and culinary expertise. Our butchers are a fantastic resource for tips on turkey prep and we have experts across the store to help make holiday entertaining easy.”
In addition to deals on turkeys, starting November 14 Amazon said Prime members will get exclusive savings on Organic Cranberries ($2.99/12-oz. bag) and Bonafide Frozen Beef Broths ($6.99/24-oz.) plus an additional 10 percent off of hundreds of sale items throughout the store.
Amazon isn't the only retailer courting customers this Thanksgiving season but it has to do more with Black Friday than turkeys. CNBC reported earlier in November that Walmart is gearing up to launch in-store events on Thursday, November 22 in which it will offer complimentary cookies and coffee as well as Black Friday promotions.
