While Whole Foods often has slightly higher prices, those customers who regularly shop there will certainly be happy to save a buck on sale items. While this has been available as a pilot in select locations, this will newly be available nationwide starting on Wednesday.
The deal also stacks with 5% back for Prime members with the Amazon Rewards Visa Card and free 2-hour delivery in select cities. That’s a total of 14.5% off (10% off the initial sale price and then 5% back on the remainder). Alternarively, we sometimes see Amex Offers for Whole Foods which could stack with this deal.
I downloaded the Whole Foods app and signed in with my Amazon account. That enabled me to click “savings” and see what is on sale this week. My view on grocery store prices is heavily skewed by living in a small town with only 1 grocery store for about 20 miles in any direction, but the sale prices didn’t look as expensive as I’d expected. For example, 85% lean ground beef is on sale for $3.99/lb. After 10% savings, that’s about $3.60/lb, or stacked with the Amazon Prime card it’s a net $3.41/lb. That’s not a deal compared to what you can find elsewhere, but neither is it outrageous (at least compared the prices I pay locally).
Avocados were on sale 4-for-$2.99, and those are regularly $1ea or more where I live. After the 10% discount, I could see the potential for some deals – especially for those who would shop at Whole Foods anyway.
