I love wine; and I love saving money on wine. After purchasing 8 bottles of wine this weekend at about $12 a pop for a family gathering (which ultimately turned into a giant app-o-rama… more on that later), I decided that it might be time to consider joining a wine club… even for only a shipment or two just to replenish my stock. With that being said, this offer couldn’t have come at a better time:
The catch is this: you get 2,000 miles with your first shipment and then 4,500 with your 2nd shipment (plus a United Club pass as well). Still, considering that United sells their miles at $35 per 1,000, this is still a pretty decent offer even if you cancel after the first shipment.
Back in the good ‘ole days of the US Airways Grand Slam promotion, I believe I purchased a Vinesse wine shipment for a “hit”, and from what I remember, I was very satisfied with the outcome. Overall, I felt it was a good deal, so I am feeling pretty confident about ordering again.
Have you ever joined a wine club or ordered a shipment of wine for promotions such as “free miles”? If so, which wine club are you part of?
