NEWPORT NEWS — Amazon celebrated its annual Prime Day on Monday and Tuesday, spanning two days full of deals for Prime members.
The online retailer offered a new perk this year — Prime members who spent $10 or more (using either a mobile app or a credit card linked to their Amazon account) at Whole Foods received $10 in Amazon credit toward a Prime Day purchase.
Shoppers at Whole Foods, 12090 Jefferson Ave., said they visit the store regularly, some even several times a week. Others said they were visiting just to scoop up savings.
Traveling from as far as Suffolk, some planned to put their $10 credit toward video games, others bought diet supplements, and some bought necessities like diapers for the infants.
