Amazon buys Whole Foods

And now amazon has given notice that Amazon Prime Now is ending, at least in my area, at the end of the month.  Whole Foods ordering as been folded into amazon.com.  When I tried to use amazon.com to order from Whole Foods I ran into a problem they require you to give a number that can accept accept text messages.  Why can't an intergalactic space ship company just make it easier to buy their stuff?

Another of the innumerable challenges that might (but won’t) be resolved with a smart phone

Same email received here.

 

I ordered a Whole Foods delivery for today.  There is a line on the invoice for service charge, though it currently is set to zero.  Some things I do not understand.  Like why I received two packages of duck.

I think the fee starts Oct 25th according to my email from Amazon.   I wonder if you have Amazon Reward $$ in excess of $9.95 in your Prime account, could that be used to cover the fee?   The FAQ's don't cover that now for the fee.   To be honest, I am not a home delivery shopper at the moment, so I don't have a depth of experience with WF Prime Home delivery.

 

I have used Amazon Fresh and Amazon Pantry home delivery on rare occasions.

I used to use Amazon Fresh, but Amazon Fresh is no longer available in my area.
