If you’re an Amazon Prime member who likes to shop at Whole Foods Market, here’s a new way to cut your grocery bill!

After purchasing the supermarket chain last year, Amazon has announced its long-awaited loyalty program for Whole Foods shoppers that will provide an extra 10% off hundreds of sale items.

In addition, the retail giant says there will be Prime exclusive discounts on best-selling items.

“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.”

Prime deals will be showcased prominently in the store. Customers can also go to the Whole Foods Market app to find out about the offers for that week.

Follow these three steps to get started with the new loyalty program:

  1. Download the Whole Foods Market app and sign in with your Amazon account
  2. Look for blue signs in the store that call attention to special deals for Prime members and yellow signs for items to save an extra 10%

Meanwhile, Amazon said it’s planning to expand free two-hour delivery on Whole Foods Market groceries through Prime Now, which is currently in 19 cities.

These changes come after Amazon recently increased the price of an annual Prime membership from $99 to $119.
