The discounts are a “sneak preview” of the savings Prime members can expect to get once Amazon Prime becomes the official rewards program of Whole Foods, according to the press release.

Whole Foods will also offer lower prices immediately on Value Pack Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, Responsibly Farmed Raw Peeled Shrimp, and holiday favorites such as 365 Everyday Value Canned Pumpkin, Organic Broccoli, one-pound Organic Salad Mixes, Organic Russet Potatoes, and Organic Sweet Potatoes, according to Amazon.

Amazon acquired Whole Foods Market in August. The holiday discount is just the latest step in the integration of the two companies, according to Amazon.

Whole Foods Market has locations on Ohio 725 in Centerville on Deerfield Boulevard in Deerfield Twp., on Edmondson Road in Cincinnati, on Dublin-Granville Road in Columbus and at Easton Town Center in Columbus, according to the grocer’s website.
