Amazon steps up Prime rollout at Whole Foods

Amazon steps up Prime rollout at Whole Foods

Amazon announced that Amazon Prime members who order Whole Foods online can expect delivery within two hours - for free. On June 13, Whole Foods will launch a slew of additional sale items for Prime members only.

In order to get the discount, Amazon Prime members scan their Prime code on the Whole Foods app or give your mobile number at checkout. The service began in February in Austin, Dallas, Cincinnati and Virginia Beach, Va. Amazon has owned Austin-based Whole Foods since August 2017.

"Based on the positive customer feedback and successes we've seen over the past month, we're accelerating our timeline to expand these savings to all of our USA stores", said A.C. Gallo, president and chief operating officer at Whole Foods Market. The program means Prime members will receive an extra 10 percent off sale items and rotating deals for members of Amazon's $119-a-year Prime membership. "Based on the positive customer feedback and successes we've seen over the past month, we're accelerating our timeline to expand these savings to all of our USA stores".

Today in Philadelphia and a few other USA cities, the answer is yes.

Wednesday, Amazon will offer some special discounts including deals on nectarines and peaches, pork sausage and yellowfin tuna steak. And for "ultrafast" delivery within one hour, customers can pay $7.99.

Echo devices sold near the checkout registers have been acting as a constant reminder of the new parent company, but there have also been clear benefits, mostly in the form of discounts for Amazon Prime members.

With the expansion, Whole Foods deliveries through Prime Now are available in 14 cities nationwide.
