Prime members will also see produce-specific deals such as organic red cherries for $3.99 per pound, $2 less than non-prime members will pay.
During a trial phase that started six weeks ago in Florida, Prime members saved millions of dollars, according to a release.

“Customer feedback has been overwhelmingly positive – in fact, Prime members have adopted this benefit at one of the fastest rates we’ve seen,” said Cem Sibay, vice president of Amazon Prime. “Since starting this rollout in mid-May, Prime members have already saved millions of dollars on everything from seasonal favorites to popular products.”
The Prime member savings are also available to customers who have Whole Foods Market groceries delivered through the Prime Now service. The service is available in 14 cities across the nation, including Cincinnati. Two-hour delivery on orders over $35 will be free.

Whole Foods has a location in Washington Twp., two in the Cincinnati area and two in the Columbus area.
