Amazon’s official Whole Foods reward program cuts costs on turkeys and other products, while providing even more reductions to members of Amazon Prime. They intends to give Prime members more savings after Amazon’s $13.7 billion purchase of the grocery store franchise in 2017.
After the close of this deal, Amazon wasted no time following through on their promises by reducing costs on several groceries.
Now, Amazon is providing a minor but strong sample of what the savings for members of Prime may resemble as the discount program launches, they also launched a Featured Whole Food Store on Amazon.com: https://www.amazon.com/b?ie=UTF8&node=17021658011
Whole Foods has reduced costs to $3.49 per pound on organic turkeys and $2.49 per pound on no-antibiotic turkeys.
However, Prime members will get even more of a discount – they’ll only have to pay a respective cost of $2.99 per pound and $1.99 per pound.
The company also debuted a new slew of cost reductions on various products, such as holiday favorites and everyday items.
You’ll find reduced costs on: Responsibly Farmed Raw Peeled Shrimp, Value Pack Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts (No Antibiotic and Organic), Organic Broccoli, 365 Everyday Value Canned Pumpkin, Organic Russet Potatoes, 1lb Organic Salad Mixes, and Organic Sweet Potatoes.
The cost reductions go past Whole Foods’ products and brands. The grocery chain will provide reduced costs on organic and popular brands such as the following: organic beans from Eden Foods, organic rice from Lundberg Family Farms, organic eggs and milk from Organic Valley, organic chicken and vegetable broths from Pacific Foods, Pasture Raised Eggs from Vital Farms, toothpaste from Tom’s of Maine, along with California Olive Ranch EVOO, Chobani Yogurt, Applegate Hot Dogs, Siggis Yogurt, and Fage Yogurt.
Amazon has begun leveraging its Whole Foods brick-and-mortar presence. In addition to the cost reductions, customers can purchase Amazon’s devices at the grocery stores, including Echo speakers and Fire tablets. They are also running multiple pop-up holiday stores.
These are the newest reduced costs of the company’s integration with Amazon. Over the last several months, the companies have been collaborating, and their unity seems to be a working match. They will keep working alongside one another to please customers with Whole Foods Market’s organic, natural, and high-quality food.
Prime members who wish to capitalize on the turkey reductions will need to print a coupon found on Amazon.com and show it at the checkout counter. If the consumer has purchased the turkey already, they can come to the store for a credit. Assumingly, when Whole Foods and Amazon’s systems are merged, a tangible coupon won’t be necessary.
The turkey can be reserved on the internet, then picked up at a nearby store, or purchased the old-fashioned way at the store. Shoppers are encouraged to seek out the turkeys with an orange stripe marked “Special Savings.”
The cost reductions have already affected the stocks for competing franchises. Kroger, Costco, Walmart, and Sprouts Farmers Market shares all fell on Wednesday after the announcement.
