Amazon is Using Whole Foods to Rev Up

(Seattle)

How Amazon plans to use Whole Foods as part of its broader strategy is becoming clearer today. The company has announced that it will begin to offer significant discounts on hundreds of products, in addition to special offers, for Amazon Prime members who shop at Whole Foods. The company already has great Prime penetration of Whole Foods shoppers (75%), but less than 20% of Amazon Prime members shop at Whole Foods. The perks are a way to lure more Prime members into Whole Foods. The company seems likely to use the increased sales to offset any cost rises to its Prime service.

FINSUM : This seems like a good idea as the move will feed both its Prime business and Whole Foods.
