NEW YORK - It's Prime time at Whole Foods: Amazon (AMZN) is rolling out discounts for Prime members at the organic grocer. The benefits start Wednesday at stores in Florida and will expand nationwide this summer. Prime members will get an additional 10 percent off sale items and exclusive deals on certain groceries. This week in Florida, for example, Prime members can get $2 off a pound of organic strawberries or save $10 a pound on wild halibut steaks. Amazon wouldn't say if it plans to add the benefits to Whole Foods stores in Canada and the U.K. Since it bought Whole Foods last year, Amazon has cut prices on some groceries, begun offering same-day delivery to Prime members in several cities and extended its 5 percent cash-back Amazon rewards credit card to Whole Foods purchases. But turning its Prime membership into the Whole Foods loyalty program could attract more people to its stores. Amazon said last month it had more than 100 million paid Prime members worldwide. That was … [Read more...] about Amazon Prime members get Whole Foods discounts

AMAZON Prime offers subscribers free same-day delivery on selected items as well as access to thousands of films and TV shows online. Here's everything you need to know about its features, how much the service costs and what to do if you decide to cancel your membership. What is Amazon Prime and how much does it cost? More than 80million are said to have signed up for Amazon Prime whose benefits include free delivery and streaming media. It costs £7.99-a-month or £79-a-year for Brits, although you can sign up for a 30-day free trial if you're not sure you want to commit.

Amazon's Prime Day kicked off with a bust, with the site's storefront crashing soon after the sales event started at 3 p.m. ET. But now that the site is back up, analysts are giving the once-over to this year's deals. Their verdict: Amazon Prime Day has some solid sales, but getting a bargain isn't guaranteed. Amazon is banking that Prime Day will help lure more customers to sign up for its Prime membership, which recently boosted its annual price by 20 percent to $119 per year. Prime Day alone could be worth billions in sales to Amazon, with Deborah Weinswig, CEO of Coresight Research, estimating it will generate $3.4 billion in sales worldwide, up from an estimated $2.4 billion last year. Amazon has also extended Prime Day for six hours longer than last year. The sale began at 3 p.m. ET on Monday, July 16 and will last for 36 hours. "Amazon has clearly pushed demand for its Prime extravaganza to an all-time high -- maybe even more than it anticipated," said Neil Saunders, managing … [Read more...] about Amazon Prime deals: What to avoid, what to buy
