Re: Grand Reserve World Mastercard - Earn up to 8x Points On BD12

When you factor in taxes, the redemption value is really 0.66 cents/point.

I will do a side-by-side comparison between Zalto Burgundy, Sensory and Grassl Cru someday. :)

Re: Grand Reserve World Mastercard - Earn up to 8x Points On BD12

I found the following to be the best redemptions:

Grassl BD12 dozen/6
Sensory 4-pack
Gabriel Gold 2-pack
2016 Vineyard 7 & 8
2016 Palmaz

Would love to hear from the experts here.

Re: Grand Reserve World Mastercard - Earn up to 8x Points On BD12

Best redemption value is to spend whatever points you have left and get out. The company just admitted that their point is valued at 0.004 cent per. They offer 5 points per dollar spent (thereby 2% return) on their partners, 1.2% return on other wineries, wine clubs, restaurants, deliveries, and 0....

I am a bit concerned about the application process for this card. They asked me to submit my driver's license or passport and proof of address (like utilities bill). This is very odd. I have never had to do that for any credit card application.
