Amazon announces discounts for Prime members at Whole Foods Market
Amazon has announced that Prime members can now get an additional 10% off sale items as well as “weekly deep discounts” on select best-selling items.
In a statement issued today (16 May), Amazon added: “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.”
This is the latest example of how Amazon is to looking leverage the synergies between the Prime programme and Whole Foods Market . Earlier this year, the companies launched free two-hour delivery on Whole Foods Market groceries through Prime Now in 10 cities across the US, with more to come in 2018. Eligible Prime members also receive 5% Back on Whole Foods Market purchases when using the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Card.
Whole Foods is reported to have a total of more than 470 stores in the US, Canada and UK – the vast majority of which are in the US.
