Did you ever in your wildest dreams imagine a day when Amazon would be offering deals on organic turkey for Thanksgiving Day meals through its own brick-and-mortar grocery chain?
It’s the latest perk for Amazon Prime members, and a way to get the attention for Whole Foods Market, the supermarket chain Amazon acquired last year.
Here’s an excerpt from Tuesday’s press release:
“Amazon and Whole Foods Market today announced turkey deals just in time for Thanksgiving. 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). Plus, 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 at Amazon.com/PrimeSavings. New members can try Prime free for 30 days, full promotion details are at Amazon.com/PrimeSavings.
“The offer runs through November 22 while supplies last, and customers can reserve their turkeys in advance at wholefoodsmarket.com. Customers who place their orders in advance online will be eligible for the lower prices when they check out in store.”
