Eggs don't fart, man.

Probably because most people didn't unwrap them and get a whiff until Thanksgiving morning.

My kid got one of these turkeys. Her and her hubby opened up the fresh turkey that had been guaranteed fresh through Nov 30 and it stunk to high heaven. They threw it away and the green beans the store had delivered that were also rotten. They had hastily unfrozen chicken breasts and potatoes for Thanksgiving. I'll have to send her this article so she doesn't think it was just them that got shafted on T-Day morning.

I bought a "fresh" turkey one year and it reeked when I took it out of the plastic. I washed off most of the stink and then gave it some extra time in the oven to kill whatever was left, and it turned out OK. I've never had a problem with frozen birds.

Suckers.

I'd be asking rather insistently for a refund.

I always buy a hard as a rock frozen turkey, like god intended.

Ya know he's just laughs every morning when he wakes up.

Even people in my family who didn't trust internet purchases or or apps before this have caved to Amazon.

Built an empire on "people want shiat now and instant gratification" just amazes me that back in the day. I ordered black and white cheap textbooks from Amazon for college. now almost everything is on there.

Was kinda amazed he bought Whole Foods though, seemed like their over priced product is the complete opposite of the Amazon structure, kinda just figured he was trying to both ends of the market, the poors and the rich stay at home moms.

Guess he decided to go Walmart at the high end market. At least this round Krogers is laughing their asses off.

I've been an Amazon customer for over 20 years now.
I really thought they earned their "monopoly position" naturally, by being really good at what they do.

I've really soured on them of late.

The retail side is a crap shoot of guess-whether-your-product-is-counterf​eit and what-the-fark-is-this-brand-name, while the AWS side's costs are now spiraling out of control.

They've actually made Whole Foods worse, if that's even possible. The last time I've gone there it's just a smaller version of an AMZ warehouse with nothing but Prime shoppers clogging all the aisles.

My guess is kosher.

Kosher poultry is really sensitive to the cold chain - if you let the birds get about 40F for even a few minutes, they start putting out hydrogen sulfide.

I'll believe the turkeys were safe to eat when I see Jeff Bezos eating one of them.

I went from a huge supporter of Amazon to basically boycotting them entirely for that very reason. I don't have time to deal with returning fake items, arguing with 3rd parties who insist that I just accept their incorrectly labeled products, or deliveries of products that say "delivered" but never show up, just to get told "just wait a few more days."

Fark them. I'll take my business to a customer-focused company. It's amazing how quickly the entire experience went downhill when they invented the 'Prime' membership. That was when it became crystal clear that they were about extracting value from consumers above all else.

Really thats kind of on you.  the counterfeit/compatible shiat is a crapshoot whether you buy that usb charger at walgreens or amazon; I mean they strange manufacturer names are RIGHT THERE.    Its easy to be sure you're buying the name brand product on their site, and equally easy to see that you're buying a secondary manufacturer.   I've never had a problem buying anything from a fast charge USB cable to a 75 inch sony TV from amazon.

As for food purchases, about a month ago I caved and started buying groceries on fresh; too much anxiety at packed grocery stores.  I ordered fresh strawberries and blackberries that were as good as what i'd pick at the store. my grocery bill was probably 15% higher than what it would normally be when all said and done, but I'm fine with taking a small chance on the standard grocery list by using the service.

I'm lucky that I can deal with spending an extra 20 bucks on groceries and able to do it, and even if i occasionally get something that is a let down, they'll refund the purchase.  its hard to complain about anything related to the services they provide from my perspective.

I got a frozen turkey delivered as part of a Prime grocery delivery and it turned out nicely, zero complaints. I'll save cooking a fresh bird for years when I can safely rub elbows with the butcher while picking one out.

/might go upscale with a boutique butcher ham for xmas

We have a Kroger and a Walmart near us. Both offer on-line shopping and drive to the store and the guy puts stuff in your trunk pick up. I think you have to buy $35 worth of stuff, but that is never a problem for me.

It has worked well for us, except for one time at Walmart when I had to wait about 20 minutes and no one showed up. I went in the store and the customer service line was long and slow. I went home and got to their web site. There was a contact phone number to call. I called and they said I would get a call back. In less than 2 minutes a lady called me to apologize and set up a new time for the pick up.

I went back and they had everything I ordered, right on time. They even threw in a goodie bag.

Kroger has never been a problem. It was difficult getting a pick up time in the spring when everyone was freaked out about in-store shopping, but much improved recently.

I'm getting old enough and crabby enough to let somebody wander around a store picking up my items, particularly heavy ones. It's a "free" service both these companies offer as opposed to some of the shopping services that deliver to you home and since these stores are so close, diving there and making a phone call isn't a real inconvenience. They even upgrade an item if the one you ordered is out of stock.

I pretty much agree with the sentiments about Whole Foods. I really hate that place.

Like Mrs. Carte says, "What, are they going to sell half foods?"

And now Amazon is opening brick-and-mortar book stores. So weird...
