Amazon ‘Primes’ Whole Foods for More Visitors
Jeff Bezos is about to one-up your grocery store loyalty program.
Today, millions of consumers get lower prices and other perks in exchange for favoring one store chain over another. Starting Monday, Amazon will lavish its most loyal customers with similar benefits and more when they shop at Whole Foods Market, the high-end grocery chain it’s buying for $13.7 billion.
People who already pay $99 for Amazon Prime’s free shipping, streaming music and video will have another reason to renew each year: cheaper organic avocados, eggs and chicken.
