Whole Foods fans are in luck. Amazon sent out emails to Prime Rewards Visa cardholders notifying them of a fantastic offer when shopping at the health-focused grocery store.

Between Dec. 17-24, Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Cardmembers can earn 10% back on Whole Foods Market purchases. There's a $400 cap on how much you can earn, but that would mean you'd have to spend $4,000 at the store during the next week.

If you aren't an Amazon Prime member and hold the Amazon Rewards Visa, you're still eligible for double earnings, meaning 6% back instead of the normal 3%.

Since most people won't be able to spend $4,000 on groceries during the next week, buying gift cards could be a great way to maximize this promotion. Although Amazon states in the deal's terms that gift cards aren't eligible for the increased cash back, past data points confirm that purchasing gift cards at the super market will work.

Whole Foods sells Amazon gift cards, so you could potentially stock up on Amazon credits at a great discount. Just be aware that it's not guaranteed you'll earn the 10% back, so hope for the best but expect the worst.

The Amazon Prime Rewards card doesn't carry an annual fee but you'll have to be an Amazon Prime member to hold the card, which costs $120 a year. TPG does recommend it as one of the best credit cards for Amazon and Whole Foods purchases, and if you don't have the product, check out our list of the best credit cards for groceries..
