It's Almost Thanksgiving And Whole Foods Just Started A Huge Sale

It's still no Aldi, but Whole Foods is offering discounts on Thanksgiving staples ahead of our massive national food orgy.

Whole Foods has been running splashy sales on all of its excessively pricey foods since it was acquired by ruthless price-chopping overlord Amazon earlier this year, and never has this been bigger news than the week before Thanksgiving. It's still not Aldi-level cheap, but shopping at Whole Foods may no longer require your whole paycheck, as Amazon sets out to erase its new plaything's evil nickname.

Let's start with the main event — turkeys, which are now $2.49 a pound, or $3.49 if you want an organic bird. This means you can get a 12-pound turkey at Whole Foods for the low LOW price of $30 to $42. (FWIW, Kroger is selling turkeys for $0.59 per pound for loyalty card shoppers, and Butterballs at Aldi are $0.99 per pound.)
