Amazon Squeezes More Benefits Out of Whole Foods

Whole Foods Grocery

Now, Amazon has announced that Prime members will get 5 percent back at Whole Foods when using their Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature credit cards.

Whole Foods, the organic supermarket known for its prices and lush produce, just got a little more affordable for Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card cardholders. Everywhere else you will get one percent back.

Shoppers can also access credits and cash back at Whole Foods through other credit cards: Uber Local Offers, for example, which Uber users can opt into from the app, offers a 5% Uber credit for Whole Foods purchases when you use your eligible Visa card.

Expect to see more integration between Amazon's technology and Whole Foods. If you regularly shop at Whole Foods anyway, this could turn out to be a significant amount of cash back to spend on other Amazon purchases.

You don't have to be a Prime member to be approved for Amazon's Rewards Visa, but it pays if you are.

Amazon is leaving no stone unturned to rake in more Prime members, and channel those towards Whole Foods and vice versa.

The delivery plan is slated to be rolled out nationwide later this year. There is also now a Whole Foods online storefront on Amazon's website.

Amazon has added yet another perk to its $99-per-year Prime membership scheme.

However, all has not gone well between the two companies. Further, several employees at Whole Foods complained about the retailer crushing their morale with new procedures, according to Business Insider. The Prime fast-shipping program will be at the heart of it.
