Amazon Prime Expands Whole Foods Discounts to 10 More States


On June 13, Whole Foods will launch a slew of additional sale items for Prime members only.

More savings for Amazon Prime members at Whole Foods.

Since taking over Whole Foods, Amazon has also cut some prices at the notoriously expensive supermarket. Amazon Prime members in Hawaii on Wednesday are scheduled to be eligible for special discounts at Whole Foods Market stores - such as $9-per-pound savings on sustainably caught yellowfin tuna steaks, Amazon and Whole Foods announced today. Prime benefits also are available to members at all Whole Foods Market 365 stores.

Amazon first announced the deal earlier this month at stores in Florida, and expanded it to 12 more states in late May. The new states receiving the service are Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, and the southern halves of Nevada and California (the northern halves already had access).

Customers can shop from thousands of items including produce, bakery, dairy, meat and seafood, floral and everyday staples from Whole Foods at or by using the Prime Now app available on Android and iOS devices.

Two-hour delivery through the service is free for Prime members, and delivery within one hour is $7.99 on orders of $35 or more.

Grocery orders will be packaged by "shoppers" employed at Whole Foods stores and delivered by drivers with the Amazon Flex courier service, Katz said.
