When Amazon purchased the whole Whole Foods retail business, one of the things they promised is that it will become one of the benefits that their Prime subscribers will be getting eventually. It took them almost a year to fulfill that but now finally we are seeing the benefits of this acquisition. Amazon announced that they are now rolling out Prime treats for subscribers at the brick and mortar stores as well as when shopping online for all your grocery needs.
If you will shop at any of the more than four hundred Whole Foods stores across the US, you will be able to enjoy 10% off on “hundreds of sale items” as well as specific discounts on other items that will change over time. Items included are in the various categories like meat and fish, frozen goods, produce, bulk items, etc. This actually started six weeks ago but only in Florida and then eventually selected states. But by June 27, it will be rolling out across the US and all Prime members can enjoy these special offers when they walk into any of the stores.
If you prefer to do your grocery shopping online, you can also do the Whole Foods delivery option through Amazon Prime Now. If your order is above $35, you can avail of the two hour deliver option. However this is only available in select cities for now, specifically in Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Boston, Cincinnati, Dallas, Denver, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Richmond, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco, and Virginia Beach. Amazon is also offering a 5% money back at Whole Foods Market and Amazon.com if you have an eligible Prime membership and 3% back if you don’t have an eligible account.
To avail of the discounts as part of your Prime membership, install the Whole Foods Market app on your Android device and then sign in with your Amazon account. When you’re checking out at the store, the app will give you a Prime Code that can then be scanned. You can also just register your number with Whole Foods and just show it to the cashier when you’re paying. If you’re not yet a Prime member, there’s a 30-day trial that you can sign up for just to check it out.
