Amazon Prime rolls out new Whole Foods discount in North Carolina stores

Amazon Prime rolls out new Whole Foods discount in North Carolina stores

It's Amazon's latest integration with Whole Foods, which it acquired for $13.7 billion past year.

Last month, Amazon announced its plan to bring more perks to Prime members shopping at Whole Foods stores across the country, and now the tech giant is expanding its reach.

The discount was announced in May for a trial run in a small number of stores, and will now extend into 10 states where Whole Foods Markets have a presence.

This spring, Amazon said it was raising the price of its annual Prime membership fee to $119 a year, up 20 percent from $99. The store at 400 E. Stonewall St. opens at 9 a.m. on June 13. Amazon says that should include "hundreds" of items within the store, but obviously your experience is going to be more local.

To participate, Prime customers should download the Whole Foods Market app, sign in with their Amazon account and then scan the app's Prime Code at checkout.

Discounts for Prime members will work through the Whole Foods Market app.

Organic yellow nectarines and peaches, $1.99/lb., save $2/lb.

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.

Wild sustainably caught yellowfin tuna steaks, $15.99/lb., save $9/lb.

Customers can also get the savings with Whole Foods grocery delivery, which is free for Prime members via Prime Now for orders over $35.
