If you’re an Amazon Prime member who likes to shop at Whole Foods Market, here’s a new way to cut your grocery bill!
After purchasing the supermarket chain last year, Amazon has announced its long-awaited loyalty program for Whole Foods shoppers that will provide an extra 10% off hundreds of sale items.
In addition, the retail giant says there will be Prime exclusive discounts on best-selling items.
“These savings are currently available in all stores across Florida and will expand to all Whole Foods Market and Whole Foods Market 365 stores nationwide starting this summer,” Amazon said in a news release.
Amazon Prime members will get new discounts at Whole Foods Market
Here are some examples of the initial Prime deals that are being featured at Whole Foods stores in Florida starting May 16:
- Sustainably-sourced, wild-caught halibut steaks: $9.99/lb., save $10/lb.
- Organic strawberries: 1 lb. for $2.99, save $2
- Cold brew coffee at Allegro coffee bars: 50% off 16 oz.
- KIND granola: 11 oz. bag 2/$6
- 365 Everyday Value sparkling water: 12-pack case buy one, get one free
- Magic Mushroom Powder: 50% off
- Additional 10% off hundreds of sale items throughout the store
Prime deals will be showcased prominently in the store. Customers can also go to the Whole Foods Market app to find out about the offers for that week.
Follow these three steps to get started with the new loyalty program:
- Download the Whole Foods Market app and sign in with your Amazon account
- Look for blue signs in the store that call attention to special deals for Prime members and yellow signs for items to save an extra 10%
- Scan the Prime code on your app to have savings applied at checkout
Meanwhile, Amazon said it’s planning to expand free two-hour delivery on Whole Foods Market groceries through Prime Now, which is currently in 10 cities.
These changes come after Amazon recently increased the price of an annual Prime membership from $99 to $119.
