The Amazon-Whole Foods merger is the gift that keeps on giving. Earlier this week, the online giant’s $13.7 billion acquisition caused prices to drop significantly at Whole Foods—up to 40 percent!—on items like avocados, kale, almond butter, and eggs. But what if you’re too lazy to go to the store and still want to reap the benefits? Now you can get hundreds of Whole Foods products delivered with your Prime membership—including wine.

Amazon Prime Now (included with Prime membership in a few dozen major cities like NYC and Chicago) and Amazon Fresh ($14.99/month) are selling Whole Foods’ 365 Everyday Value products, ranging from tons of canned beans to frozen raw meat to olive oil. We’ve selected 13 of the best Whole Foods deals on Amazon to stock up on that’ll save you from schlepping groceries home and help your wallet at the same time.

1. Beans

Our favorite canned beans are black beans, and cannellini beans are both $0.79 per can, so you can stock up for a big batch of chicken chorizo chili.

2. Rice

There are at least 10 varieties of rice on Amazon Prime Now and Amazon Fresh. You can snag 2 lbs. of long grain white rice for $3.99. That’ll make a lot of fried rice.

3. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Right now the only Extra Virgin Olive Oil available is 16.9 oz ($7.99), but hopefully soon there will be bigger sizes.

4. Crushed Tomatoes

We love to use whole peeled tomatoes, but in a pinch, crushed tomatoes ($2.29 for a 28 oz. can) will do. Try it for pizza sauce!

5. Jug O’Canola Oil

If you want to buy oil in bulk, you can get a 3L jug of canola oil for $8.99, perfect for making fried chicken.

6. Butter

For all of your baking needs, unsalted butter is only $3.49 per pound on Amazon. (Psst, maybe make these biscuits.)

7. Coconut Milk

8. Coconut Water

Rehydrate with 1L containers of coconut water for $3.29 each.

9. Coconut Oil

The trifecta is complete with coconut oil, which costs $5.99 for 14 oz.

10. Soy Milk

Soy milk ($2.99 for half gallon) was the only alternative milk online right now, but we bet almond and cashew will follow suit.

11. Sea Salt

Coarse sea salt for everyday seasoning is $1.99 for 25 oz.

12. Frozen Chicken Wings

Store raw frozen chicken wings ($8.99 for 2 lbs.) in the freezer for when that random baked peppercorn wing craving hits.

13. Spices

whole foods turmeric

There are tons of Whole Foods spices at fair prices, from basics like thyme and garlic powder to usually-pricey-but-not-essential cardamom ($4.99) to turmeric ($3.99). Tonight’s the night you finally try a Golden Milk latte. And you’ll basically be Scrooge McDuck with all the money you saved, too.
