Get 50% Off Whole Foods Today With LivingSocial’s Latest Deal

at 2:58pm Sep 13, 2011

For the next 17 hours and counting, you can get 50% off at Whole Foods Markets, courtesy of LivingSocial’s latest high profile deal.

The group buying company is currently offering $20 vouchers for the self-proclaimed ‘natural and organic’ grocery chain for a mere $10 purchase price.

According to Mashable, “Visitors to LivingSocial’s site or recipients of the company’s emails are eligible for the offer, which gives $20 worth of the chain’s groceries for $10. In addition, 5% of the proceeds from the promotion will go toward the Whole Kids Foundation, which supports schools and aims to inspire families to improve children’s nutrition and wellness. A rep for LivingSocial says this is the first time a national grocer has offered a daily deal with any company.”

The vouchers are limited to 1 per person, and are reminiscent of a similar deal the company offered forAmazon in January. 1 Million people took advantage of that deal, and as of 2:30 PM PST, over 907,000 had already purchased the Whole Foods Deal according to the LivingSocial website.

In case that discount is burning a big ol’ whole (pun intended) in your pocket and you’re wondering where to spend it, the El Segundo Whole Foods has been rated the highest by the most people, according to Yelp. Yelpers are also big fans of the Pasadena and Glendale locations, but aren’t so fond of the store’s outpost in Sherman Oaks.
