When it comes to fresh food fast Amazon understands both delivery and freshness according to Steven Johnson Grocerant Guru® at Tacoma, WA based Foodservice Solutions®. Johnson stated “Fresh food quality combined with freshly prepared full-flavored food from Amazon is something everyone just might want to consider this Thanksgiving.”
So, Amazon is gearing up for the holiday shopping season with Thanksgiving meal deals through Amazon Fresh and Black Friday and Cyber Monday through its online portal, the Seattle-based retail giant announced.
Amazon Fresh said it is offering Thanksgiving dinner for a family of five for under $50. That offer includes an 8- to 10-pound Butterball whole turkey, turkey gravy, russet potatoes, green beans, cranberry sauce, cornbread stuffing, sweet rolls, Amazon Fresh-brand pie and Breyers ice cream.
The Thanksgiving dinner deal has a catch, though. Shoppers must spend over $50 to receive a frozen Butterball turkey for 49 cents per pound. That deal doubles to 99 cents per pound for those purchasing the turkey online. Sometimes we wonder if they are serious about fresh food retail as the team at Foodservice Solutions® suggest its time for the Amazon Fresh trial to be over and they should simply push for marketing share for Holiday meals and they will garner new customer waiting to migrate.
Members of Amazon’s premium service, Amazon Prime, will enjoy 10% off for items such as eggs, butter, sugar, cooking oil, meats and produce, the company said in a statement.
All of Amazon’s physical stores will be open on Thanksgiving from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is offering 2-hour delivery for orders where available.
Personalized deal notifications are available through the Alexa app up to 24 hours prior to the sale, the company noted, enabling customers with items saved in their Wish List, Cart and Saved for Later lists to “keep an eye on personalized deals throughout the season by saying, ‘Alexa, what are my deals?’” We suggest consumers as Alexa “Thanksgiving Meal Deals”.
“They can also ask Alexa to remind them of deals once they are live, or ask Alexa to make a purchase when a deal is available by saying, ‘Alexa, buy it for me,’” the company said.
