Don't worry, Whole Foods (known by some as "Whole Paycheck") didn't just jack up the prices in advance of Prime Day. Indeed, a variety of items will be on sale starting July 10. A few top picks:
Organic red cherries: $3.99 per pound (save $3 per pound)
RXBAR bars and nut butters: 40% off
Self-serve mochi ice creams: 50% off
Ben & Jerry's and Talenti pints: 2 for $6
365 Everyday Value trail mixes: 35% off
You'll also get 10% off sale items and more daily deals leading up to Prime Day. However, as you might expect, a few exclusions apply: That initial $10 spend can't include alcohol, gift cards, stamps or sales tax.
But here's the really important bit of fine print: The $10 credit you receive must be used for an Amazon purchase between 12 a.m. PT on July 15, 2019 and 11:59 p.m. PT on July 17, 2019. In other words, during Prime Day (or the day after). You can find the full terms and conditions on Amazon's Whole Foods Prime Day FAQ page.
If you're heading to Whole Foods, make sure to scan your Prime Code (from within the
app) -- or share your linked-to-Amazon phone number -- at checkout. That's how you'll receive your $10 credit.
