Amazon is rewarding Prime members for shopping at Whole Foods stores

The e-commerce giant is rewarding those who shop at Whole Foods - which Amazon bought back in the summer of 2017 - as shoppers who use the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa card at the grocer will be rewarded with 5% cash back on all purchases.

Amazon has found another way to leverage its acquisition of Whole Foods Market by giving the grocery store's customers an incentive to become members of its Prime program. The new offer was announced Tuesday and is available right away, according to USA Today.

This offer makes the Prime card one of the most attractive cash-back offers around.

"We've seen incredible excitement and adoption around our Amazon Rewards Visa Credit Cards and are thrilled to partner with Amazon and Whole Foods Market to bring even more rewards to our joint cardmembers", said Leslie Gillin, President, Chase Co-Brand Cards. All cardholders also get 2% back at gas stations, drug stores, and restaurants, and 1% back on all other purchases. If you're not a Prime member, you will get three percent back.

AmazonFresh now offers a wide selection of groceries for delivery, all for a monthly fee of $14.99 on top of Prime members' current subscription fee ($12.99 per month, or $99 annually), and delivers via marked trucks. For example, to use the recent Prime Valentine's Day rose promotion, Whole Foods customers had to present a printed bar code. The e-commerce giant announced last week that it will offer free two-hour delivery of Whole Foods groceries in four USA cities. Amazon's call for a new inventory management system resulted in fewer items on the shelves.
