Amazon Prime members beginning Wednesday can get discounts at Whole Foods Markets nationwide.
Prime members will receive 10 percent off hundreds of sale items as well as discounts on select popular items.
Announced in May, the program launched first in Florida. Savings examples provided by Whole Foods Market include:
— Baby back pork ribs, animal welfare rated and no antibiotics, $4.99 per pound.
— Sockeye salmon, wild caught Marine Stewardship Council-certified, $13.99 per pound.
— Organic yellow peaches, $1.99 pound.
— Bulk items, including favorites like nuts, granola, dried fruit, 25 percent off.
— Organic Honest Lemonade, 32 ounces, two for $3.
“Customer feedback has been overwhelmingly positive — in fact, Prime members have adopted this benefit at one of the fastest rates we’ve seen,” said Cem Sibay, vice president, Amazon Prime in a statement.
Here’s how the program works:
Prime members who download the Whole Foods Market app onto their smartphones and enter their Amazon account information will then be able to scan the app’s Prime Code at checkout and get the discounts.
Customers also can link their phone number to their account for use at checkout. For information on how to link your phone number, go to amazon.com/primesavings, where you can also sign up to receive Amazon Prime for free for 30 days.
Prices on hundreds of items at Whole Foods were reduced after Amazon purchased the chain in 2017.
