Amazon is giving a $10 Amazon credit to any Amazon Prime member who spends at least $10 at Whole Foods by July 16th. The only ‘catch’ (if you can call it that) is that you can only spend that $10 Amazon credit during Amazon Prime days, which are July 15th and July 16th, 2019.
In case you were wondering whether Amazon might be slowing down in any way – they’re not. In fact, in addition to their looking for the location for their second headquarters, they have announced that they are opening seven new fulfillment centers in August alone! Salt Lake City, Orlando, Las Vegas, Aberdeen MD, Shelby Township MI, and Troutdale OR are all seeing a new fulfillment center open this month, and Las Vegas has not one, but two new Amazon fulfillment centers opening in August. Separately, Amazon has also announced a new perk for Prime members: you can now place an order with Whole Foods through the Prime app, and it will not only be waiting for you when you arrive, but a Whole Foods team member will bring your order out to your car!
The world woke up to this astounding business news this morning: online retailer Amazon is buying natural food wholesaler Whole Foods in a deal reported to be north of $13 billion.
