Amazon brings Prime discounts at Whole Foods to 10 more states

Arizona, Georgia, Hawaii, Oregon, North Carolina, and Washington join the existing 13 states.

Echo devices sold near the checkout registers have been acting as a constant reminder of the new parent company, but there have also been clear benefits, mostly in the form of discounts for Amazon Prime members.

Prime member deals will be prominently featured in store and customers can go to the Whole Foods Market app to learn about numerous best offers.

Now even more Amazon Prime members can save extra money at Whole Foods.


Amazon introduced Prime savings at Florida Whole Foods stores in mid-May and two weeks later expanded the benefits to Whole Foods locations in another dozen states.

The discounts include $2-per-pound savings on organic yellow nectarines and peaches; buy one, get one free purchases of Annie's Natural Macaroni & Cheese; and $3-per-pound savings on made-in-house pork sausage, with no antibiotics. They can also use their mobile phone number at checkout.

The latest expansions mean that Prime members are eligible for discounts at nearly half of the Whole Foods locations in the USA, in 23 states overall. Additionally, customers in Atlanta, Austin, Dallas, Denver, Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Diego, and San Francisco can get Prime member savings and Prime Now grocery deliveries. Delivery from Whole Foods is available in 10 cities and is slated to expand to more cities this year.

Two-hour delivery is free and one-hour delivery is $7.99 on orders $35 or more.
