Amazon launches special Whole Foods discounts for Prime members

From the looks of things, free two-hour shipping is but one of many, many Whole Foods perks Amazon is giving Prime members — something subscribers deserve, considering Prime’s 20 percent price increase. The e-commerce giant has just announced two new benefits for its subscribers: an additional 10 percent discount off sale items and deep discounts on select best-selling items every week. To take advantage of the discounts, Prime members have to physically go to a Whole Foods location and find the yellow 10 percent off and the blue special deal signs. They then have to scan the Prime code found in the Whole Foods Market app — it’ll appear so long as they sign in using their Prime credentials — when they check out.

The special deals seem to cover everything from sparkling water and granola bars to fruits and meat. Two of the first deals, for instance, are $10 off per pound of sustainably-sourced, wild-caught halibut steaks and $2 off per pound of organic strawberries. The discounts and new perks are currently available only in stores across Florida, but Amazon says they’ll roll out to all Whole Foods 365 locations nationwide starting this summer.
