So what kind of discounts can Prime members expect this week?
- Baby back pork ribs for $4.99/lb. ($5/lb. off)
- Wild caught Sockeye salmon for $13.99/lb. ($6/lb. off)
- Organic red cherries for $3.99/lb. ($2/lb. off)
- All bulk items like nuts, granola, etc. 25 percent off
Amazon's Whole Foods program originally debuted in Florida and quickly spread to 23 states earlier this month. Today, Amazon announced that the long-awaited perk will soon be available nationwide. The 10 percent discount comes just days before the July 4th holiday and the alleged start of Prime Day.
Prime customers will either have to sign in to the Whole Foods app and generate a bar code, or enter their phone number in order to get the discounts. If you're all in on Amazon and have its credit card as well, you'll get an extra 5 percent cash back.
This spring, Amazon increased the price of Prime from $99 to $119 annually. It's the second time there's been a price increase since 2005, when Prime cost $79. Amazon is also looking to expand its free 2-hour Whole Foods delivery nationwide for Prime members.
Amazon Prime also includes 2-day shipping, a subscription to Prime Video, the Prime Music service, access to a library Kindle books and more.
Amazon bought Whole Foods in 2017 for $13.7 billion in cash, and has made some other changes, including slashing prices and adding Amazon lockers to most stores.
