Amazon Prime members will get a special Thanksgiving discount at Whole Foods

Amazon price cuts just made holiday food shopping a whole lot cheaper — especially for Prime members.

Customers at Whole Foods will soon see new, reduced prices on popular holiday food items like turkey, canned pumpkin, and sweet potatoes, Whole Foods announced in a press release Wednesday.

As part of an ongoing integration process between the two retailers, the store will offer even lower prices to Amazon Prime members, who will be able to log onto their accounts and print a coupon for increased savings. For example, non-Prime members will be able to buy organic turkey at the lower-than-usual price of $3.49 per pound, but Prime members with their printed coupon will pay just $2.99 per pound.

Amazon began cutting Whole Foods' prices in August after closing a deal to buy the grocer for $13.7 billion. "This offer is a sneak preview of the special savings and in-store benefits Prime members can expect when Prime becomes the official rewards program of Whole Foods Market," said John Mackey, Whole Foods Market co-founder and CEO in a press release.
