All Whole Foods Stores Add Amazon Prime Rewards
Amazon’s plan to roll out a rewards program using its Prime program has come to completion, with all Whole Foods Market and smaller-format 365 stores to offer savings to Prime members starting June 27.
One year after Amazon announced its intent to purchase Austin, Texas-based Whole Foods, members of the Amazon Prime subscription program, which offers unlimited free two-day shipping, unlimited viewable streaming media and more, will be able to enjoy exclusive savings on select popular products. Along with getting an additional 10 percent off hundreds of sale items throughout the store, members can enjoy such deals as:
- Baby back pork ribs, animal-welfare-rated and antibiotic-free: $4.99 per pound (save $5 per pound)
- Sockeye salmon, wild-caught Marine Stewardship Council-certified, $13.99 per pound (save $6 per pound)
- Organic red cherries, $3.99 per pound (save $2 per pound)
- Organic yellow peaches, $1.99 per pound (save $2 per pound)

Amazon-Whole Foods Deal: 1 Year Later
See what four grocery retail experts have to say on the one-year anniversary of Amazon's announcement that it intends to acquire Whole Foods.
The deals aren’t limited to in-store: Customers can enjoy them through Seattle-based Amazon’s delivery service, which uses Prime Now to bring groceries from Whole Foods stores to front doors. Prime Now grocery delivery, along with the special savings, is currently available in Atlanta; Austin; Baltimore; Boston; Cincinnati; Dallas; Denver; Los Angeles; Philadelphia; Richmond, Va.; Sacramento, Calif.; San Diego; San Francisco; and Virginia Beach, Va.
According to Amazon Prime VP Cem Sibay, Prime members have adopted the new perks at “one of the fastest rates” he has seen since the rollout began in mid-May. Since then, members have saved millions of dollars on products.
“Since launching Prime savings at Whole Foods Market, we’ve seen excitement and momentum from both Prime members and our supplier partners,” said A.C. Gallo, president and COO at Whole Foods Market. “Our weekly Prime member deals are a hit, and we’re excited that Prime members across the U.S. will now be able to take advantage of these savings in our stores.”
