Thread Details

The year end promo they've been running the last couple of years is back.

Buy $500 or more in Whole Foods gift cards, get an additional gift card worth 10% of your purchase. 12/21/2015 - 12/27/2015.

saw it in NYC location at customer service. dunno if it's nation wide or not. but seems to be B&M only.

I understand Whole Foods may not do it for some people, but this may be handy if you or your loved ones are going to shop there anyway
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Current Gyft discount is better in terms of percentage...but if you shop a lot at WF this might be better from a straight $ standpoint.

hmmm... Gyft deal is dead, no?

i think this is a decent deal, especially if one has a credit card with 5x at grocery store, this is not bad.sadly, i don't have Whole Foods all that close to my apt to invest $500.

You know people beat this "WF is so expensive" drum all the time, but it's actually quite reasonably priced if you know what to buy.

i agree with this statement. for NYC the prices are reasonable, definitely cheaper than food emporium or dagostino (both awful grocery stores)

Maybe in NYC. Here is is most expensive specially with Earth Fare, The Fresh Market and Sprouts giving it a good competition

WF is competitive in NYC (where I've lived) and in the inland west where I currently live as well. Basic whole grains are completely unavailable in mainstream supermarkets, and where they are they are hideously overpriced.

The selection at WF is better, but this depends what you buy entirely. If your point of reference is $1/quart heavily processed yogurt with thickeners, spending $3-4 a container will seem outrageous.

sorry but I tend to disagree. Lets take the same example of Yogurt which you described. The same brand/type is 1.5 to 1.75 times more expensive at WF as compared to other retailers. Point is every region is not same. That's why I said initially it might be good compared to NYC

Buy a $500 gift card at whole foods and get a 10% B&M. (Bowl Movement?)

NYC is an outlier. Peoples' shopping habits are not the same, but I have experience in areas with high COL and low COL... For what I buy (mainly basic foods) the WF "markup" is not really that obscene, and I have been far less than satisfied with the selection at Sprouts and other "natural" foods stores. I don't shop exclusively at WF but it is reasonable/cheap for what it is.

The obscene price differentials you are going to find are in processed foods, and perhaps yogurt would fall into that category.

Again the argument is just market wise. A simple example is Bananas which are not processed I think. WF sells even more than a Quick Trip gas station does

anyways do not want to present more examples. end of story
