Re: Chateau Palmer 2016 for $274, what the what?

I ordered nothing from flannery but had to replace. I bought Salt Vine and Grassel only.
I also bought Grassl, that and Flannery were my two purchases on the 26th, card was compromised on the 27th.

Re: credit card breaches?

Not sure it's Flannery but that's one of the merchants I bought from during BD. Got $0.1 from Wilborniti Turkey Run US last Thursday, then $600+ from GB which Citi marked as fraud and contacted me immediately.

Another code for $100 off - WABRCT2 (good till Feb 20) For those that participate in the annual free shipping program, use code ncsjan20 for a free $20 off any order (no minimum)....e.g. $30 bottle ends up being $11 after tax.

Re: Official Costco Thread

I think it’s weird how Costco allows such price variance from store to store. ‘08 Cristal is $229.99 at every store I’ve seen it at in the Bay Area. ‘08 Dom is either $142.89, $144.99 or $149.99. Some forumites in other regions have reported even lower prices for both bottles. Purchase price isn't ...

I would not have used the bestdealever code had I knew there were other $100 off $300 codes coming. That’s a $49 option you can add to any order any time. I have saved more than $49 in shipping already.

Re: Chateau Palmer 2016 for $274, what the what?

If you're considering paying $49 for one-year free shipping, use BESTDEALEVER for an order of $200 plus the shipping program and get $50 off. That's not as good as the two codes offering 33% off, but still not bad considering you get free shipping when using those codes.

Thanks. 2008 was the only vintage? The other 3 on CT just don't look right.
