Amazon Prime discounts coming to Whole Foods Market in 12 more states, plus all Whole Foods 365 stores nationwide

When Amazon forked out nearly $14 billion to buy Whole Foods Market last year, it was inevitable that there would be some intriguing benefits for existing Prime members. Sure enough, lots of Whole Foods products have been added to Amazon's two-hour Prime Now delivery service in selected cities, and in-store discounts for Prime members were announced earlier this month.

At that time, those benefits were limited to the state of Florida, but now Amazon is including a further 12 states — 121 Whole Foods Market stores in total — in the program. Additionally, all Whole Foods Market 365 stores nationwide will carry the Prime discounts, so you should be able to find one somewhere not too far away.

Amazon Prime Book Box is a mail-order book subscription for your kids

Before Amazon became the go-to place to buy literally anything you want, the company made a name for itself largely by selling physical books. Now, the online retail giant has a neat new service in keeping with its history: Prime Book Box is a subscription plan that will send you a box of either two or four child-friendly books every one, two, or three months for $22.99 per box—at a savings of "up to 35% off List Price."

How to keep paying $99 a year for Amazon Prime

Last week, Amazon announced it would be increasing the price of its yearly Prime membership subscription from $99 to $119 starting May 11 and June 16 for renewals. Prime has gradually become more expensive over time — the last time the price of a yearly subscription increased was in March 2014, from $79 to $99 — and while it's hard to argue that you're not getting plenty of value for what you're paying, no one likes to have to pay more for something. Fortunately, there's an easy way to save $20 off your subscription, allowing you to lock in the current price of $99 for the foreseeable future.

Amazon Prime increasing to $119/yr starting May 11 for new subscribers, June 16 for renewals

It's pretty safe to say that Amazon Prime is a very popular service, what with over 100 million subscribers. Many will call Prime invaluable, from the great shipping options to the wide selection of media to consume. But a change is coming and it's coming soon: Amazon is raising the U.S. annual fee for Prime to $119, versus the $99 it is currently. This price hike will affect new subscribers starting on May 11 while renewals will still get the $99 price until June 16.

Amazon is refunding Prime Exclusive phone ad removal fees


Amazon announced last week that it was removing the lock screen ads from its Prime Exclusive phones, but it was less keen to tell everyone it was also raising the price by $20.

Amazon Prime Video can now be installed on Android TVs, but it doesn't actually work

Amazon released an official Prime Video app for Android TV last month, but you couldn't actually install it on anything. The app was (and still is) marked as incompatible for every Android TV device on the market, so no one can actually use it yet, and there's no APK available. Now the situation is even more confusing, as Amazon has enabled Android TV devices to download the normal Prime Video app.

Amazon reportedly working on an ad-supported video service, company selectively refutes rumors

According to AdAge, Amazon may be making an ad-driven "complement" to its Prime Video streaming service. This could be huge news, as a video service that's free in any form could be a significant disruption to the current streaming status quo. That is, if it's true. Amazon has told other outlets that it isn't working on an "ad-supported version of Prime Video." However, based on the details reported by AdAge, that might not be a denial.
