Amazon Announces Free 2-Hour Delivery from Whole Foods for Prime Customers

Amazon has gone through a few changes in the last year. From purchasing Whole Foods and dropping prices to announcing plans for a second headquarters, the online retail giant has moved from just retail into the grocery game. Challenging companies like Instacart that offer scheduled grocery delivery, Amazon and Whole Foods Market recently announced that they would offer free two-hour delivery to Prime members, first in four cities with plans to expand across the country in 2018.

If you live in Austin, Texas; Cincinnati, Ohio; Dallas, Texas; and Virginia Beach, Virginia, you can take advantage of this new delivery service immediately if you're a Prime member. Shop through Amazon's Prime Now feature to access both bestselling items at Whole Foods and other kitchen staples like high quality meat and seafood. Customers can use the Amazon Prime Now app to begin shopping or can head on over to to get started.

Whole Foods delivery is here to change the game on eating healthy and sustainably. Now you can schedule your free two-hour delivery and not have to worry about rounding up the kids to head to Whole Foods stores. The grocery chain has experienced quite a few changes since Jeff Bezos' Amazon took over, and we expect to see more in the future.

Of course it's important to note that this service is for Prime members only, and to learn more about the Amazon Prime membership, check it out here. Prime Now Delivery is working to take the hassle out of grocery shopping, but not everyone is a fan of a grocery delivery service. Many feel that heading into your local Whole Foods and picking out your own selection of meat and fresh produce is vital to selecting the best.

As Walmart and Target ready their own same-day delivery services, only time will tell which company will come out on top. In the meantime, we can enjoy the fact that Whole Foods delivery will soon come to the entire United States, from California to Colorado to Maine. Will you use this service?
