How Amazon Prime Users Can Get a 5% Discount at Whole Foods

How Amazon Prime Users Can Get a 5% Discount at Whole Foods

"We are excited to launch the Amazon Rewards Visa Card in our stores, offering benefits to our customers on all of their purchases at Whole Foods Market", said John Mackey, Whole Foods Market co-founder and chief executive, in a statement.

Even Amazon customers who aren't Prime members can benefit; when paying with an Amazon Rewards Visa Signature card in Whole Foods outlets, they'll earn 3 percent back-the same deal that is available with Amazon.com buys.

Amazon's latest move since acquiring Whole Foods falls in line with CEO Jeff Bezos' ultimate vision for Prime, which he has previously said is to make its selection of rewards and offerings so plentiful that it simply becomes "irresponsible" for consumers not to sign up.

It seems one group who aren't pleased about Amazon's takeover is the Whole Food employees themselves.

The delivery plan is slated to be rolled out nationwide later this year.

The company previous year added hundreds of Whole Foods items to AmazonFresh, its own grocery delivery service that launched more than a decade ago.

Making the integration two ways, Amazon devices such as Echo and Fire TV started appearing on the shelves of Whole Food stores. Further, several employees at Whole Foods complained about the retailer crushing their morale with new procedures, according to Business Insider.
