Busy parents across the land rejoiced at the merging of Amazon and Whole Foods and the perks just keep coming. In addition to the lowering of prices by 46% on just about everything in Whole Foods stores, there are a few more things your Amazon Prime membership will get you in store.
1. Free, two-hour delivery.
If you’re currently lucky enough to live in Austin, Cincinnati, Dallas, Atlanta, San Francisco and Virginia Beach, this service is already at your fingertips. But fear not, the two-hour delivery of natural and organic products from Whole Foods via Prime Now is rolling out across the U.S. in 2018. Oh, and did we mention this delivery if FREE?
2. You can already shop Amazon Fresh.
If you aren't in one of the areas that are already offering Prime Now delivery of Whole Foods products, do not despair. You likely can get same day or next day delivery of hundreds of grocery items from Whole Foods on Amazon Fresh. Just click here to see if delivery is available in your ‘hood.
3. Additional discounts for Visa card holders.
If you already have an Amazon Prime Rewards Visa from Chase, get thee to a Whole Foods where you will start earning 5% back on every purchase at Whole Foods. So you’ll enjoy all the usual perks AND this one. (Pssst...even customers with the non-Prime version of the card will get 3% back at Whole Foods!).
4. Amazon Prime Lockers in Whole Foods Markets.
Need to swing by Whole Foods for a rotisserie chicken for dinner, but want to grab those sneakers you just Amazon-primed yourself? Well, you’re in luck. Amazon lockers are coming soon to select stores in the Whole Foods chain. Not only can you pick up items, you can also drop off returns there, too.
5. Even more customer rewards.
Coming soon, any Amazon Prime member will be able to earn loyalty rewards as part of Whole Foods’ customer rewards program, just by shopping at Whole Foods. And there will be other discounts and in-store benefits to come for Prime account holders.
