Amazon Prime members get a cheaper Whole Foods basket

Ever since Amazon bought Whole Foods in the middle of last year, it's been doing pretty much everything it can to get more people in the doors. Almost immediately, these efforts materialized as across-the-board price cuts, making Whole Foods much more competitive with other grocery stores. Amazon has also been rolling out a number of perks for Prime users who choose to do their shopping at Whole Foods, and today, it's adding another one to the list.

It turns out people really like Amazon Prime

It's hard to believe that Amazon Prime has been available for 13 years at this point, but perhaps ever more surprising is Amazon's hesitancy to talk about just how popular it is among users.

Amazon Prime is a great service for anyone who regularly does their shopping online, but at $11 a month or $99 per year (if you're willing to drop that much all at once), it can be an expensive extra.

eBay Under $10 category takes on Amazon and Wish
