Next Up at Amazon-Run Whole Foods: Half-Priced Halibut Steaks

Experience-upcoming-Amazon-program

CNBC, which first reported on a trial of the Whole Foods/Prime discount program earlier this month, cited an anonymous source who said 75 percent of Whole Foods shoppers are Prime members, but less than 20 percent of Prime members shop at Whole Foods. Prime members will get an extra 10% off the hundreds of items already on sale throughout the store, and the company will offer a deep discount every week on best-selling items. It also offers 5 percent back on all Whole Foods purchases to customers with the Amazon Prime credit card.

Amazon has fired another shot across the supermarket industry's bow. That service is now available in 10 markets (Seattle is not among them). While boosting Amazon's bottom line, the Prime grocery savings could also induce a broader range of Americans to shop at Whole Foods, a store that has long held a reputation for being too pricey for many consumers.

It should also be noted that the airline does not offer refunds on these tickets, should you choose to cancel them for any reason. Those premium seats are only available on one type of aircraft, the new Airbus A330neo, which Wow will be flying to Delhi .

Co-founder and Chief Executive of Whole Foods, John Mackey told Reuters, "This brand new loyalty strategy will put into test whether Amazon's $13.7 billion deal with Whole Foods accompanies an intensified price war and disturbance to the US grocery industry of $800 billion which is dominated by Kroger Co and Walmart Inc".

Still, an increasing number of people find the benefits of membership outweigh the costs.

STALKER gave birth two a few follow-up games in STALKER : Clear Sky in 2008, and then STALKER : Call of Pripyat in 2010. Ultimately, we will more than likely learn more about the second game straight from the horse's mouth sometime soon.

Membership programs like Prime are one of the best ways to attract new customers and maintain loyal ones, said Brittain Ladd, a former Amazon executive and now a strategy and supply-chain consultant for large grocery store operators. But you'll need to be a Prime member to get the deal.
