Amazon rolls out Prime discounts at Whole Foods to 10 more states

As a part of its trade & sales promotion activities, eCommerce giant Amazon Inc. has announced that it is rolling out discounts on Prime memberships at Whole Foods stores across ten more states in the U.S. Authentic sources cite that Prime members will get a discount of ten percent on retail items in Arizona, Hawaii, North Carolina, Alabama, Louisiana, Georgia, Washington, Mississippi, Oregon, and South Carolina.

Apparently, the discount program commenced in Florida last month and may cover approximately 50% of Whole Foods’ sites across the United States – amounting to 23 states in totality. For the record, the Prime discounts can also be availed at Whole Foods Market at 365 retail stores of Amazon in the U.S.

Reliable sources claim that customers can avail Whole Foods discounts via Amazon Prime membership. Food delivery with discounts is also now available in the states such as Dallas, Los Angeles, Atlanta, San Francisco, Austin, Sacramento, Denver, and San Diego.  According to TechCrunch, two-hour food delivery on orders costing more than USD 35 is free for Amazon’s Prime membership customers.

Amazon’s latest roll-out is apparently aimed at encouraging customers to join the new program. Earlier this year, the online retail giant introduced a 5% discount on all purchases for the customers who made use of Amazon Prime Visa Credit Card.

Currently, the company only seems to be offering a few discounts for its Prime Members, including deals on yellowfin tuna steak, pork sausage, and Annie's macaroni & cheese. Last month, the company had even been planning to offer discounts to its Prime Members on a weekly basis to choose best-selling products, state reports.

According to experts, Amazon’s purchase of Whole Foods certainly pushed its reputation in the grocery business. However, they assert, to remain competitive, the company needed a way to bring down the high prices of Whole Foods’ grocery items to drive loyalty, on the grounds of which the latest roll-out may have been centered.
