Prime Now logoAmazon and Whole Foods announced the introduction of free two-hour delivery of natural and organic products from Whole Foods Market through Prime Now, with plans to expand across the United States in 2018.

Beginning on February 8, 2018, Amazon Prime customers who live in neighborhoods in Austin, Cincinnati, Dallas, and Virginia Beach can shop through Prime Now for bestselling items including fresh produce, high quality meat and seafood, everyday staples and other locally sourced items from Whole Foods Market.

Customers can start shopping from Whole Foods Market selection at www.PrimeNow.com or by using the Prime Now app on their smartphones. The app is available on Android and iOS devices.

It is possible for customers to shop thousands of items across fresh and organic produce, bakery, dairy, meat and seafood, floral and everyday staples from Whole Foods Market available for free two-hour delivery. Select alcohol is also available to customers. Prime members receive two-hour delivery for free and ultra-fast delivery within one hour for $7.99 on orders of $35 or more.

Delivery from Whole Foods Market through Prime is available from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Those who are curious about whether this new service is available in their neighborhood can visit the Prime Now website and enter their zip code to see if they are in the delivery area. Or, you can enter your zip code on the Prime Now app to find out.

People who live in a “food desert” tend to have difficulty obtaining fresh produce. Amazon’s grocery delivery service from Whole Foods has the potential to make it easier for people to buy fresh fruits and vegetables without having to physically travel to a Whole Foods store.

There is potential that this new service will help people save money on groceries. People can compare prices from Whole Foods to the sales that are going on at their local grocery store. Whole Foods might be less expensive for some foods. Don’t forget to consider the cost of the gas you will burn while driving to and from the local grocery store.

The partnership between Whole Foods and Amazon is going to be useful for people who cannot easily leave their homes to go grocery shopping. This group includes people who are elderly, disabled, or a stay-at-home parent. Those who do not own a vehicle will also find this new delivery service to be helpful.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
