Amazon rewards Prime members with 5% cash back at Whole Foods Market

The online retailer is offering the cash back deal with the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Card.

Amazon has announced that Prime members can now earn 5% cash back when they shop at Whole Foods Market using the Rewards Visa Card.

This is in addition to the rewards they already receive everywhere else they shop with the card, including an uncapped 5% back on all purchases, 2% back at restaurants, gas stations and drugstores, and 1% back on all other purchases.

Non-Prime member cardholders will receive 3% cash back on Whole Foods Market purchases as well as 3% on all purchases.

Benefits of the card also include travel and purchase protections, 24/7 concierge service through Visa Signature and various online deals.

Amazon bought Whole Foods for $13.7 billion in 2017 and has since tried to encourage its customers, especially Prime members, to shop at the chain, with special savings and other in-store benefits.

For example, in November 2017, the grocer offered early Black Friday deals on Amazon products including the Amazon Echo, Fire TV and Kindle e-readers.

However, in late November last year, Amazon emailed customers in at least nine different US states to inform them that their Amazon Fresh delivery service will no longer be available in certain areas and regions.

Amazon’s Prime service offers two-day shipping plus video streaming and other perks for $99 a year or $12.99 per month.

It isn’t the only co-branded credit card offering rewards to its customers. Earlier this month, Chase launched the new Starbucks Rewards Visa Card. With every purchase made wherever Visa is accepted, users earn more Stars, the points system redeemable for Starbucks food and beverages.

Ikea also launched its own loyalty credit card, which features a custom rewards and benefits package for shoppers who buy in-store or online. Additionally, Uber now offers its own Visa card that rewards users with 4% cash back on restaurants, 3% on traveling and 2% on Uber rides.
