Whole Foods starts discounts for Amazon Prime members

Whole Foods shoppers with Amazon membership to get special privileges

Amazon Prime members can now do their grocery shopping without spending their "whole paycheck". The app will also give customers exclusive deals and highlight the week's best offers.

Nearly immediately, these efforts materialized as across-the-board price cuts, making Whole Foods much more competitive with other grocery stores.

Whole Foods rolled out its new loyalty program and it features special Prime discounts, including 10% off of sale items and weekly specials.

Furthermore, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) will hold an emergency meeting in Istanbul regarding Palestine on May 18.

An example of one of those weekly rotating specials recently was $10 off per pound of wild-caught halibut steaks. The former will be labeled with yellow "10% off" sale signs and the latter with "Prime Member Deal" signs. At the same time, it is a way for Amazon to entice Prime members and to make it more attractive to current Prime members. The perks are available now across Florida and will be expanded to all stores in the summer. The Floridian grocery market is largely dominated by Publix, even if some of Whole Foods' toughest competition has come from natural grocer rivals, which include Lucky's Market, which has struck partnership with Kroger, and Earth Fare. "Well they are, if they only buy the handful of good deals on the card and nothing else", said David Livingston of DJL Research, a grocery industry market research firm. There's a 5-percent cash refund when members use its Visa rewards cash in stores. Alternatively, shoppers can simply provide their phone number, as long as the number is linked to their Prime account. An estimated 100 million people worldwide subscribe to Prime. Customer reviews, 1-Click shopping, personalized recommendations, Prime, Fulfillment by Amazon, AWS, Kindle Direct Publishing, Kindle, Fire tablets, Fire TV, Amazon Echo, and Alexa are some of the products and services pioneered by Amazon.

More information about the discount program can be found here.

The online retailer has made a number of changes to Whole Foods since it bought the chain previous year. Amazon declined to say if it plans to add the benefit to stores in Canada and the United Kingdom.
