The merger between Amazon and Whole Foods is starting to bear fruit for Amazon Prime members. Whole Foods recently announced an expansion of benefits for Prime members, which includes 10% off on "hundreds of sale items" in 21 states. Now, the benefits are finally going nationwide this week.
Whole Foods announced Monday that, starting June 27, Prime discounts will be available at every Whole Foods Market and Whole Foods 365 in the United States. "Customer feedback has been overwhelmingly positive -- in fact, Prime members have adopted this benefit at one of the fastest rates we’ve seen," Cem Sibay, vice president of Amazon Prime, said in a statement.
Beyond the 10% off, members get free two-hour delivery in select cities (you still have to tip) and deeper discounts on a variety of items. Here are all the latest deals Whole Foods is highlighting in the announcement:
- Baby back pork ribs, animal welfare rated and no antibiotics, $4.99/lb., save $5/lb.
- Sockeye salmon, wild caught Marine Stewardship Council-certified, $13.99/lb., save $6/lb.
- Organic red cherries, $3.99/lb., save $2/lb.
- Organic yellow peaches, $1.99/lb., save $2/lb.
- Mochi ice cream, including flavors like chocolate, salted caramel, and green tea, self-serve, 5/$5
- All bulk items, including favorites like nuts, granola, dried fruit, and hundreds more, 25 percent off
- Organic Honest Lemonade, 32 oz., 2/$3
Prime members can access the discounts by downloading the Whole Foods app. All you have to do is sign in with your Amazon account and scan your unique Prime code at check out and the discounts are yours.
Hopefully, the couple of bucks you'll save here and there on groceries will help take the sting off of Amazon Prime's recent membership fee increase.
