Customers can also get the savings with Whole Foods grocery delivery, which is free for Prime members via Prime Now for orders over $35. FBN's Gerri Willis with more.

The discount was announced in May for a trial run in a small number of stores, and will now extend into 10 states where Whole Foods Markets have a presence.

Since Amazon announced the acquisition of Whole Foods Market, the grocery store has been getting more deeply entangled in the Amazon ecosystem.

The discounts will be available starting June 13.

Since buying Whole Foods a year ago, Amazon has been working aggressively to get as many of its million of Prime members to shop in-store as possible. Amazon began offering the discounts to shoppers in select markets in May.

The companies said there also will be 10-percent reductions of "hundreds of sale items throughout the store".

To get the deals, you go to a Whole Foods location in the designated states (or any Whole Foods 365 location), and look for the yellow discount stickers. "Based on the positive customer feedback and successes we've seen over the past month, we're accelerating our timeline to expand these savings to all of our USA stores".

Wednesday, Amazon will offer some special discounts including deals on nectarines and peaches, pork sausage and yellowfin tuna steak. Plus, Whole Foods has launched even more discounts on some of the store's best-selling products.
