If you’re an Amazon Prime customer, you can now get discounts at Whole Foods, regardless of your location. The service, which went live in parts of Florida last month, will be available in all 460 Whole Foods stores in the United States no later than this Wednesday, June 27.

As part of the promotion, you can get 10 percent off certain sale items and other discounts. To activate the deals, you can sign into your Amazon account via the Whole Foods app, then scan the app’s Prime Code at checkout. You can also enter your mobile number during checkout to verify your Prime membership. If you have an Amazon reward credit card, you qualify for an additional 5 percent off.

As The Verge explains, 10 percent off deals at Whole Foods are denoted by yellow stickers, while blue labels indicate other deals for Prime members. Here are some sample discounts coming June 27:

  • Baby back pork ribs, $4.99 / pound (regularly $9.99 / pound)
  • Sockeye salmon, $13.99 / pound (regularly $19.99 / pound)
  • Organic yellow peaches, $1.99 / pound (regularly $3.99 / pound)
  • Mochi ice cream, including chocolate, salted caramel, and green tea flavors, five for $5
  • 32-ounce Organic Honest Lemonade, two for $3

These deals come just a few weeks after Amazon raised the price of its Prime service by $20 to $119 per year. It’s the first annual price hike for Prime members since 2014.

I’m not sure these deals are enough to get Amazon Prime customers into Whole Foods, but time will tell. I think it’s going to take more than 10 percent discounts to get people excited about buying products at the high-priced store.

Will these discounts make you more likely to visit Whole Foods? Let us know below.
