Here's What's On Sale At Whole Foods Now That Amazon Has Taken Over

Staple grocery items such as ground beef, eggs, avocados, and almond butter were deeply discounted on Monday.

Today is the start of a whole new chapter at Whole Foods, now officially owned by Amazon. The high-end grocer has a plan to shed its "Whole Paycheck" reputation, and that begins with sales on "best-selling grocery staples" that'll almost make people think they're shopping at a normal supermarket. More benefits will come down the line for shoppers who are also Amazon Prime members.

Of course, if customers want any these Amazon-sponsored discounts delivered, they still have to use Instacart, which is still the grocer's exclusive delivery partner.
