Amazon just gave you a Whole Foods reason to get Prime

If you’re not an Amazon Prime subscriber but love Whole Foods, which is also an Amazon property, you should check out the retailer’s brand new promotion that’s targeting Whole Foods shoppers.

Amazon is ready to give you 10% off Whole Foods purchases at already discounted prices, and cut prices on other Whole Foods products each week.

Vice president of Amazon Prime Cem Sibay told The Wall Street Journal that this week’s deals will be available immediately in Florida stores and roll out to more than 460 stores nationwide this summer.

The 10% discount will be valid on “hundreds or even thousands of already discounted items in each store,” per The Journal. Each week stores will feature up to 10 new deals.

According to Morgan Stanley estimates, some 40% of Whole Foods shoppers aren’t Prime subscribers, so Amazon is targeting those people with the new promotion. The analysts say that grocery discounts ““can go a long way toward justifying Prime membership…even at $120 a year.”

Amazon recently increased the cost of Prime by $20, but there are ways to keep the price at $99 for at least one more year. Prime already offers plenty of perks to buyers, on top of the newly added Whole Foods discounts.

To take advantage of the Whole Foods deals, Prime subscribers will have to either scan a barcode generated by the grocer’s app or enter their phone number. On top of that, if you’re holding an Amazon reward credit card, you qualify for an additional 5% off.

Signing up for a free Prime trial is pretty easy, all you need to get started is available at this link.

There’s a very easy way to get a free Google Home Mini from eBay

Smart speakers are popular devices with tech-savvy consumers nowadays, and quite affordable. Well, most of them are popular and affordable. Apple’s HomePod is neither, but then again, Apple sells it as a high-end speaker rather than a smart one.

If you’re looking to get the cheapest possible smart speaker out there, then you can go with either Amazon’s Echo Dot or Google’s Home Mini. But before you buy, you should check out eBay’s solid Google Home Mini deal, especially if you shop on the site a lot.

eBay users ready to spend at least $150 should also add the Google Home Mini in either Chalk of Charcoal to their cart, and apply the “PFREEMINI” code at checkout.

The only is valid through May 20th or until supplies last, and you can only score one Home Mini per account.

The deal is too good to pass up if you’re an eBay regular, as you’re practically scoring a free Home Mini to add to your home. If you were looking to buy more Minis for other rooms, then this deal is perfect, as you get to save $49, which is the speaker’s usual retail price.

Even if you don’t want to bring voice-activated gadgets into your home, a free Home Mini is still free and can be a great gift for a certain someone.

On the other hand, if you miss out on the deal, you should remember that the Home Mini is Google’s cheapest Home-branded speaker, so it’s often included in deals and promotions such as the one eBay is currently hosting.

Häagen-Dazs Free Cone Day 2018: How to get a free ice cream cone today

“We dedicated this Free Cone Day to our buzziest workers- the honey bees,” the retailer explains. “In recent years, the honey bee population has been disappearing at an alarming rate, affecting pollination and putting our food system at risk. For the past decade, Häagen-Dazs has been a big defender of honey bees who help us create our most beloved flavors like Strawberry, Rocky Road and Mango. As a part of the Häagen-Dazs loves Honey Bees Initiative”, we hope to give our flying friends some much needed recognition this Free Cone Day.”

Remember, the deal is only available between 4-8 this afternoon, so get to Häagen-Dazs soon if you want a cone.
