Amazon.com, Inc’s (NASDAQ:AMZN) Prime customers will soon have another benefit at their disposal. The nationwide rollout of Prime discounts for Whole Foods is happening this week.
CNBC has the scoop on what shoppers can expect.
Amazon announced Monday that members of its Prime program will have access to special savings in Whole Foods nationwide starting Wednesday.
The e-commerce giant began rolling out the program this spring in Florida and had previously announced it would scale it nationally by the summer.
Prime customers will receive perks that include deep discounts on some of the store’s most popular items, as well as an additional 10 percent off items that are already discounted. Members have already received some exclusive deals such as roses on Valentine’s Day, and free Prime Now delivery of Whole Foods items is offered in some select cities.
This is just the latest step in Amazon’s ongoing integration of Whole Foods, which it acquired in a massive deal back in 2017.
Amazon.com, Inc. shares were trading at $1,683.61 per share on Monday morning, down $32.06 (-1.87%). Year-to-date, AMZN has gained 43.96%, versus a 2.88% rise in the benchmark S&P 500 index during the same period.
