Amazon Prime Members Are Getting New Discounts at Whole Foods

Amazon is taking the next step in its integration with Whole Foods Market, confirming that it will offer 10 percent discounts on Whole Foods sale items and special deals on top grocery items to its more than 100 million Amazon Prime members. If Amazon could get all of those Prime customers to start shopping at Whole Foods, it "would become one of the top 5 grocers in the country", Ladd said. While Hetu expects a relatively high proportion of Whole Foods shoppers are Prime members, it's not clear the reverse is true. These savings are now available in all stores across Florida and will expand to all Whole Foods Market and Whole Foods Market 365 stores nationwide starting this summer.

Sustainably-sourced, wild-caught halibut steaks: $9.99/lb., save $10/lb. Customers can also go to the Whole Foods Market app to learn about numerous best offers each week.

"We're thrilled for Whole Foods Market to be part of the Prime experience", said John Mackey, Co-founder and CEO of Whole Foods Market.

Membership programs like Prime are one of the best ways to attract new customers and maintain loyal ones, said Brittain Ladd, a former Amazon executive and now a strategy and supply-chain consultant for large grocery store operators.

Markle seeks respect for dad after report he'll skip wedding
Markle told TMZ he suffered a heart attack six days ago but checked himself out of the hospital so he could attend the wedding. He had also been expected to meet the queen , her husband and the other senior members of the Windsor family this week.

To get the deals, Prime members will need to download the Whole Foods app on their phone and input their Amazon login.

The announcement marks the most aggressive stance Amazon has so far taken to integrate the two companies, at least from a consumer perspective, said Bob Hetu, a retail industry analyst with Gartner.

Amazon started offering delivery from Whole Foods to Prime customers in selected markets earlier this year. The company says it ultimately plans to make Amazon Prime the Whole Foods Market customer rewards program. Pushing special savings through Prime is a way to reintroduce the Prime customer to Whole Foods, Ladd said. Shopping at Whole Foods Market is now even more convenient with Amazon Lockers, where customers can pick up and return eligible Amazon purchases at almost 400 Whole Foods Market stores nationwide.

Amazon has fired another shot across the supermarket industry's bow.
