Now that Whole Foods is part of the Amazon family, it probably comes as no surprise that it is joining the Prime Day party. In addition to the tiers of savings Whole Foods has been rolling out to Prime members over the last several months, a new addition is coming to the Prime goodie bag. This year, in celebration of the shopping holiday that Amazon invented, Prime members will get a $10 Amazon gift card for shopping at Whole Foods during the 36-hour shopping extravaganza.
“This is Whole Foods Market’s first Prime Day, and we’re taking the shopping experience to the next level,” said John Mackey, co-founder and CEO at Whole Foods. “Between our exclusive deals and special Prime Day offers, you’re not going to want to miss out on these savings.”
And, as Amazon noted in the press release, the benefits extend beyond just the $10 credit. Prime members who have not yet tried grocery delivery from Whole Foods Market stores via Prime Now will receive $10 off their order when they shop before July 17, and will get $10 to use toward a future order. Prime Rewards Visa cardholders will also enjoy double rewards – 10 percent cash back – when shopping at Whole Foods from July 14 – 17. Alexa-enabled Echo devices will also be going on sale at Whole Foods locations nationwide.
Plus, because people really need to keep up their strength while battling for deals on Prime Day, Whole Foods is also offering up a slew of new food discounts to make sure Prime customers are fortifying themselves adequately.
