Discover 5% Cashback worked with Amazon Primenow Grocery Delivery

Discover card is offering 5% Cashback on Amazon purchases this holiday season, from October through December, 2018.

The fine print says that this is valid on:

“… purchases … made through the Amazon… checkout, including digital downloads, Amazon… gift cards, Amazon Fresh orders, Amazon Local Deals and Amazon Prime subscriptions and items sold by third party merchants through Amazon…'s marketplace.”

It does not say anything about Amazon Primenow Whole Foods purchases.  Primenow has partnered with Whole Foods to bring groceries delivered to your doorstep. 

We have been using Primenow for several weeks, using our Discover card, and wondered whether we would get 5% cashback on these Whole Foods grocery purchases.

Our Discover Card bill just arrived.  We had $380 in purchases that was about an even mix between regular Amazon purchases and Primenow Whole Foods grocery delivery.

Our 5% cashback was $19.  Which is 5% of $380.  So yes, the 5% Discover cashback worked on our Amazon Primenow Whole Foods groceries.
