Amazon Prime Members Get Free Grocery Deliveries From Whole Foods But Only In Certain Cities
Amazon is really starting to make its mark on Whole Foods, which they purchased last June for $13.7 billion. First, they lowered prices on many Whole Foods staples, and now they will offer a grocery delivery service called “Whole Foods Prime Now.” However, the company will only offer Whole Foods delivery in certain cities – Austin, Cincinnati, Dallas, and Virginia Beach, Virginia. Amazon Prime members living in the neighborhoods of these four cities can start getting free food delivery beginning on Thursday.
Amazon’s latest perk for Prime members will give their customers free, two-hour delivery from Whole Foods stores to their homes if they live in approved areas. Amazon will also offer one-hour delivery for $7.99 on orders over $35 in case you really, really need 365 Organic Peanut Butter and Ataulfo mangoes ASAP. Deliveries will be made by Amazon Flex drivers, who are contract drivers that use their own vehicles, similar to Uber. The service will reportedly be available during stores hours, generally, 8 AM to 10 PM.
