BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — If you’ve been enjoying free or almost free delivery from Whole Foods during much of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have a reminder: that ends on Monday.

All Amazon Prime members in South Florida will be charged $9.95 starting on October 25th for Whole Foods delivery. Amazon owns Whole Foods. It doesn’t matter if you’re ordering a single apple, or 17 bags of groceries. The delivery fee for all Prime members jumps to $9.95.

The price jump has outraged many contacting BocaNewsNow.com, and other media outlets, saying that free delivery was a heavily advertised benefit of Amazon Prime.

But Amazon says it needs a way to keep food prices in check, and this is it.

Many reaching out speak of rude or incompetent delivery personnel who routinely deliver the wrong food to the wrong house.

“No chance that is worth $9.95,” said a BocaNewsNow.com reader and frequent Whole Food delivery shopper. “I’ve had food left at homes down the street, I’ve had the wrong food delivered. It’s like they found some of the least intelligent people and offered them jobs that actually do make a difference in the lives of their customers. This is a sad move by Amazon.”

Amazon reminds shoppers that “one hour grocery pickup at Whole Food market will continue to be free for Prime members in (South Florida).”
