When Amazon bought Whole Foods, there was chatter that Prime members would score special deals at the natural food market, but now those promises have become a reality. Today, Amazon announced Prime members will now receive special discounts (look for the blue signs in the store) and an extra 10 percent off sale items that are marked by yellow tags, but there’s a few catches. For now, this deal can only be found at Florida locations. Also, you have to first download the Whole Foods Market app and sign in with your Amazon Prime account, which will open up access to the discount codes to be scanned in at check-out. And to think, we’ve only been using our Amazon Prime account to binge on Suits pre-Royal Wedding. There’s a whole new world open to us now!
According to the press release, these discounts will apply to hundreds of products. That’s not all though; there will be Prime-only discounts on best-selling products too. For example, one of the deals currently available in Florida locations is locally sourced, wild-caught halibut steaks for ~$10 per pound (regularly ~$20 per pound). While these deals are only available at Florida locations for now, they will roll out in other states this summer.
The press release also reminded customers that the companies offer free two-hour delivery on Whole Foods Market groceries through Prime Now in 10 cities, including Los Angeles, Atlanta, San Francisco, Austin, Cincinnati, Dallas, and Virginia Beach, with more to come in 2018. And if you happen to have an Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Card, you can receive five percent back on Whole Foods Market purchases. Yes, it looks like Amazon *really* wants to keep its Whole Foods customers a healthy dose of happy.
