Amazon add Prime benefits to Whole Foods with 2 hour deliveries

Amazon has launched a free two-hour Whole Foods delivery service for its Prime members in four US cities with plans to expand to more locations later this year.

Amazon shook the grocery world a year ago when they bought out Whole Foods for $13.7 billion.

As part of the deal, Prime Now customers get free two-hour delivery of their shopping after spending more than $35.

"We've launched Whole Foods products on our Amazon website, and the technical work continues to make Prime the Whole Foods customer rewards program and we expect to have more on that later in the year", Olsavsky said.

Amazon bought the Whole Foods market chain in June for $13.7 billion.

Once packed, the orders will then be handed off to Amazon Flex delivery drivers.


"I like to get it myself", she said outside a Whole Foods store. The two-hour delivery implies no costs while the one-hour delivery costs $7.99 on order higher than $35. Amazon has cut prices on bananas, yogurt and other items, and began selling Kindle e-readers in some of its 470 stores.

However, all these integrations focused on Whole Foods' brick-and-mortar stores, making the new delivery integration a first and unique offering to push up sales of Whole Foods products.

Amazon's purchase of Whole Foods Markets made it the country's fifth-largest grocery chain, according to an online research firm.

"Today's announcement shouldn't come as a surprise, as it's the most logical step following the company's acquisition of Whole Foods and the next step in connecting its grocery offering".

Whole Foods deliveries are now available from 8am to 10pm, and Amazon claims that customers will be able to shop for "thousands" of items.

Since Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) bought natural foods supermarket chain Whole Foods past year, the e-commerce giant has been busy placing its own electronics into hundreds of locations. It also plans to install Amazon Lockers at Whole Foods locations.
