The savings for Amazon Prime members will expand to 10 more states, including Hawaii.

Since buying Whole Foods past year, Amazon has been working aggressively to get as many of its million of Prime members to shop in-store as possible.

The tech giant's announcement comes days before it plans to open its highly anticipated Charlotte store on Stonewall Street uptown. Prime members will sign into the app using their Amazon accounts, and then scan the "Prime Code" inside the app when they check out at Whole Foods.

Echo devices sold near the checkout registers have been acting as a constant reminder of the new parent company, but there have also been clear benefits, mostly in the form of discounts for Amazon Prime members. Amazon began offering the discounts to shoppers in select markets in May.

The discounts, which take effect on Wednesday, apply to various products - such as fruit, meats, water and other snacks - and also include an additional 10 percent off various sale items. Amazon says that should include "hundreds" of items within the store, but obviously your experience is going to be more local.

The 36,000-square-foot Whole Foods is uptown Charlotte's first full-sized grocery store.

Stonewall St. opens at 9 a.m. on June 13.
