Re: Best deal/coupon for on-line wine shopping.

That is exactly why I am following up on my purchases. The cash back via Rakuten was huge. My purchase on the 10% day was $2,200. They have not credit any of my orders they keep saying the order has not shipped and they can't credit till the order is official When I've gotten these I've responded w...

Re: Best deal/coupon for on-line wine shopping.

Re: What Bedrock wine are you drinking tonight?

2015 esola this has an incredible fruity nose. I thought this would be over the top fruity but it goes to the edge but not over and remains balanced. A lot of red fruit with some spice. The bottle says zin but i would never have guessed that.

From retailmenot or Rakuten? I’ve read on other sites that Rakuten max is $50 per order, but don’t see any restrictions spelled out on Rakuten’s site. Wine.com breaks down every wine futures purchase into its own separate order, so I ended up with 7 individual orders. Will be interesting to see how...
