Amazon has finished distributing discounts for first-tier members to all the whole foods in the nation. If you want to participate in the money saving action, here is what you need to know.
How to set up your first-class discounts
Amazon is trying to simplify your task as much as possible to get your discounts when you are shopping, but you will still need to do some work to install it. You have two options, depending on how you prefer to get your discounts. You can either install the Whole Foods app on your phone and scan a barcode every time you go out, or you can link your phone number to your Amazon account and give it to the cashier every time you go out.
Option 1: Scan a QR Code
If you want to go download the application and scan a code when you extract, follow these steps:
This QR code changes every 30 seconds or so, much like a two-factor authentication code . This is to prevent you from taking a screenshot and sharing it.
Option 2: Link your phone number
If you do not want to install the application, you can use your phone number to verify your identity. To do this, proceed as follows:
Log in to your Amazon account and go to this page .
Click "Update Settings" next to "Use your mobile number."
Make sure the number you see is correct, or enter it if necessary.
Enable the toggle that reads "Use my cell phone number at checkout."
Now when you go out, you can ask the cashier to look up your phone number. Unlike the QR code option, there does not seem to be any method to confirm that you are using your premium account to get offers.
How to find deals when you're in the store
Amazon offers you two ways to save money in your stores: blue-only sales for primary members and yellow-label sales available to everyone, but first-time members get 10% off discount in addition to the stated selling price.
Yellow sales are everywhere
This additional 10% off will allow you to do a lot of work for your savings. The yellow sales stickers like the ones above are everywhere in the store, showing you the discounted items that are currently going on. As a main member, you pay 10% less than the price of the big yellow sticker. So, using the orange juice in the photo above, you will take $ 0.14 more than $ 1.39, which will make your price $ 1.25. Not bad!
Blue Label sales are exclusive items for you
Blue label sales are a bit rarer, presumably because Whole Foods does not want to fill its stores with offers that some customers can not get without a subscription. Instead of seeing stickers everywhere on each shelf, you will see where appropriate stand or mouthpiece with a large blue panel. In some cases, there will even be a sign hanging over the stand. You can see an example of both in the photo above. These will be sales that are right for you and the other main members. You probably do not build your shopping around these, but you might find some bargains here and there, especially on seasonal or featured items so keep an eye on them.
The process of using your new discounts is relatively straightforward, so you should not have to over-adjust your purchase process. If you do not shop at Whole Foods, it may not be enough to get you started, but if you're already a regular customer, or if you might be in a hurry, these discounts could give you a boost. not much time. deeper in the world of Amazon.
