Cheddar Morning Business Update 11/15: Amazon starts Black Friday deals early

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK - Amazon's Black Friday deals start this Friday and the retailer is giving a preview.

Amazon is slashing prices on lots of AMAZON products, like a Fire HD for $100 and an Echo Dot for $29.99.

Black Friday itself will feature more than 30 Deals of the Day and thousands of Lightning Deals.

Meanwhile, for everyone more concerned about the Thanksgiving Day meal, Butterball will sell organic whole turkeys for the first time, as well as organic ground turkey.

Butterball says it's offering organic options because customers want it.  Last year, sales of organic food hit an all-time high of $43 billion.

Lastly, Taylor Swifts' new album 'Reputation' is officially this year's top selling album.
The album went on sale four days ago and already sold more than 1 million copies.

Only five albums released this decade have sold a million records in less than a week.
