Amazon is introducing special savings for Prime members at Amazon Fresh.

Members of the Amazon Prime paid loyalty program will soon have another exclusive discount.

Starting Wednesday, June 29, Prime members will be able to save 20% on select everyday essential products at Amazon Fresh stores. Prime members will have access to this in-store discount year-round to members by scanning the in-store QR code in the Amazon app at checkout, or by paying with a credit card registered to their Prime account at a register, on an Amazon Dash Cart, or at aJust Walk Outexit.
