Thanks, Vince. I’m not really sure what I mean either. I know I used to have another “affinity” Amex and every time some kind of offer came out like a discount off a certain purchase at a certain merchant if you used your Amex, that card was excluded. I assume “issued by Amex directly rather than by another bank and just using the network” avoids that.

But it’s a bummer to hear that the Wine Access discount won’t work for me if I just sign up for an Amex card and use it, unless/until they send me a personalized/targeted offer.

Dave, I’ve been getting a ton of wine offers on my Delta Skymiles Gold card (Wine Access, Vinfolio, First Bottle Wines, and several other retailers and wineries).

I've received most of the other wine offers mentioned but have not the Wine Access offer yet. That's okay, as I hardly need another excuse to buy more right now! Though if higher tariffs go through I'll be happy to have bought heavily so far this year.

This one worked. Thanks, Ryan!
I have been unable to get RMN cashback to work on wine.com today though.

There is a portal called Amex Offers. They'll put in ~100 "offers" that you can click to enable. Some people click on everything, because they think that you will eventually get more offers and/or get the most bang for your buck. I subscribe to the look and only click on ones you want. Some of the T&C say things like you agree to share purchase data etc etc w/vendor and I'm just not that comfortable for something that is not tangible for me.

I would say find a card you like ... (and if it has a referral offer that is the same as the public offer use a referral, preferraly mine neener ) and use it for a while and check back monthly for amex offers.

my consumer cards did have Vinfolio, First Bottle, Benchmark, etc. They don't usually offer the same offer to the same person on multiple cards, so maybe i click and activated the wine/wineaccess on my blue business first and thus it didn't appear on my consumer cards. (2x MR beats everything else they offer.)

Ridge Lytton is back on wine access for $40 pre discounts. Four bottles for $27 each using a referral, my link is below. If you have an Amex offer for $50 off $150 it’s even sweeter, $20 each when you order 5 bottles.
Link to Ridge Lytton
https://www.wineaccess.com/catalog/2017 ... 8567921f4/

My referral link, $50 off your first order of $150 or more

I know this forum doesn't like Orin Swift, but WineAccess has Papillon for $65.

Using the referral discount (http://share.wineaccess.com/v/ryan_37) of $50 off $150 and buying 3 bottles, should get your AMEX bill to right around $155 depending on the state. So $35/each after tax for 3 bottles.

Speaking of Diamond Creek these days... 2016 Diamond Creek Red Rock Terrace and Volcanic Hill are $250 before any discounts, so 150 after referral and amex offer. I suppose if you haven't used any of the amex offer, you could get 1 of each for 300 too.

Red Rock Terrace: https://www.wineaccess.com/catalog/2016 ... asket=true

Volcanic Hill: https://www.wineaccess.com/catalog/2016 ... asket=true

Referral code: http://share.wineaccess.com/v/daniel_46

They've shipped with styro+ ice pack in NY state, so I've been happy with their summer shipping. Not sure how it applies to other areas.

2016 Matthiason Cab@$60 https://www.wineaccess.com/catalog/2016 ... 17cf6f1b1/

2014 Sociando-Mallet@$40 for 6: https://www.wineaccess.com/catalog/2014 ... a01caec33/
You could buy a six pack, and with tax on top, get it for 150 after referral and amex offer, which puts you at 25 each all-in.

Signed up for a Blue Cash Preferred - Seemed to have the best intro offer for me. They wouldn't honor the 100,000 Hilton points offer they made to my wife (the offer for me was 75,000 via Amex's site and 80,000 via Hilton's), so I'll have her sign up for that one separately.

On my Blue, the Benchmark offer is listed, along with Wine Country Gift Baskets and a winery I've never heard of, but not Wine Access. [shrug.gif]

I went ahead and added all three of those in the hopes that will give them a hint.

Nice choice on the Amex Blue Cash Preferred! Great card for groceries (6% on $6k) and I’ve gotten every decent wine offer on mine [cheers.gif]

2017 Teeter Totter for $65, and 2017 Pott NV for $69 at Wine Access. Basically list price for either but a good deal with the coupon:

http://share.wineaccess.com/v/joe_28

Ridge Lytton Springs a better deal for $40 since shipping is included on 3 bottles.

2016 Diamond Creek Gravely Meddows:
https://www.wineaccess.com/catalog/2016 ... d157212d4/

Could be had for around $150-$170 after referral and amex offer.

Here is my referral if someone needs to buy from Wine Access. Check your AMEX offer as well to combine the deal.

Looks like it sold out so it's gone from the site, but you can still access it via direct link. If you try to add the wine to your card though, it will give you an error.

It might show up again though

Bummer I missed the Sociando. I have lots of the 2014 and still would have jumped all over this. Somebody scored.

The 20% said it expires 7/31. Was planning to use the $20 off $50 with it but lost track of days, oops :-(

There are some $20 off $100 codes: PSNEW, ENTDEAL20

Wasn't there yesterday either, despite having been reported to run through 7/31. I wonder if they hit some threshold they have to stop per terms with the retailer.

I suspect all the coupons/portals for wine.com are related to pumping up their numbers before another capital raise effort.

Wine.com Seeks Funding at Valuation of More Than $1 Billion (1)
2020-07-31 17:38:33.730 GMT


By Gillian Tan and Scott Deveau
(Bloomberg) -- Wine.com, an online retailer that lets
customers chat live with sommeliers, is exploring a funding
round that’ll value it at more than $1 billion, according to
people with knowledge of the matter.
The company has tapped an adviser for the fundraising,
which may target so-called crossover investors or firms known
for backing fast-growing companies ahead of a potential initial
public offering, said the people, who asked not to be identified
because the talks are private. Wine.com is seeking to raise
around $50 million to $75 million, one of the people said.
A Wine.com representative declined to comment.
The San Francisco-based company, which offers a membership
program that includes unlimited shipping, said this month that
it posted revenue of $106 million for the quarter ended June 30,
up 283% from a year earlier. Its trailing 12-month revenue was
$244 million, a 79% increase.
Wine.com said it held 20 virtual
wine tastings that were attended by 40,000 households
collectively.
“The last quarter has fundamentally changed our growth
trajectory,” Chief Executive Officer Rich Bergsund said in a
July 16 statement.
The company’s backers include Goldman Sachs Asset
Management’s private-credit group and Baker Capital.
Many online retailers have seen sales surge as customers
across the U.S. remain stuck at home amid efforts to stem the
spread of Covid-19. On Thursday, e-commerce giant Amazon.com
Inc. reported a record profit for the second quarter.

What's the email address to esquire about the RMN cashback after 45 days? I replied to the initial activation email, but haven't received an answer.

I used a 30 off 150 wine.com coupon about 10 days ago. Not the best, but wasn't too bad in conjunction with RMN 20%. I am pretty sure it was TAUB30.

There is a "contact us" button at the bottom of the page. That brings up a form you can fill out to initiate a "case" for payment. You'll be able to attach your invoice or a screenshot.

If they were discounting below whatever margin they want to hit and missing it, then it might not be sustainable. Based on WS Pro, their advertised prices are consistently 20%-30% higher than retail elsewhere so coupons just bring them inline with market. I am assuming that even discounted to this market "average", their margin is decent. At their full advertised retail price, the margin is probably pretty damn good. If they get their raise (which seems likely at whatever valuation), the coupon party will not only continue, it will get louder.

That's not really a like for like comparison - the wine.com price is generally going to include shipping since I suspect so many of their customers have StewardShip. I don't think an AmazonPrime style of shipping model - 'all you can eat' for one annual fee is going to work without more rules. Even Amazon in the early days before they had their own logistics network had some minimums. Right now wine.com lets a customer (if they wanted) buy a $7 bottle and get it shipped, all by itself. And they don't have any incentive system, or rules to prevent that.

It just seems too Moviepass like to me. But hey, if VC funds want to throw money at this, and build the Amazon of wine+delivery, we can enjoy it while it lasts. I'd just keep an eye on the SS autorenewal if the discounts/coupons/portals start drying up since then the value proposition changes.

BTW, I'm not sure if others are seeing it, but referral links started showing up my wine.com account again.

I am assuming that even discounted to this market "average", their margin is decent. At their full advertised retail price, the margin is probably pretty damn good. If they get their raise (which seems likely at whatever valuation), the coupon party will not only continue, it will get louder.
On average, yes, wine.com prices are 20%-30% higher than WSP but if you pick the deals carefully you can get 20%+ off of WSP low plus free shipping. Not gonna help a lot for a case of $200 Bordeaux but for onesies and twosies or under $50 wines it's been pretty awesome. For instance Chateaux Figeac $224 WSP low ($185 Binny's Ill only) comes in at $166 with wine.com codes.

Pretty sweet deal out there now on WineAccess if you have the AMEX 50/150 offer on one of your cards. Pair that with this $50 off referral http://share.wineaccess.com/v/peter_57 and score 3 2017 Frog's Leap Estate Rutherford Cab for $26 each.

Popped one just off the truck last night with steaks, so good and can obviously age 10-15 years.

It just seems too Moviepass like to me. But hey, if VC funds want to throw money at this, and build the Amazon of wine+delivery, we can enjoy it while it lasts. I'd just keep an eye on the SS autorenewal if the discounts/coupons/portals start drying up since then the value proposition changes.
Moviepass was structurally a lot more risky but I agree with the overall sentiment. As Matt Levine @ Bloomberg wrote in one of his infamous columns, "the King of Saudi Arabia is sending hot chocolate to everyone in Mexico City". (Saudis were major backers of Softbank's Vision Fund. The latter plowed a ton of money into Uber-like services that operated in places such as Mexico City and did food delivery at low(er) cost due to being subsidized by venture capital)

The capital raise angle, coupled with the revenue growth focus in the press release, seems to explain all the heavy discounting. Given that the RMN 20% promotion was in July, though, it would seem that they aren't looking to slow down after Q2 and hopefully there are more coupons and bit RMN promotions to come...

Just checked my Amex offers page again, still no wineaccess, but there are some new ones in there. I take it from this that I just have to keep checking every so often, that I'm not going to get an email or other notice of new offers on my card?

That's killer. Was looking at a wine.com deal that would have come in at $32 per.

I have chase sapphire. I looked on their site. Didn't see any good wine deals. Has anyone found any good offers with that card?

I saw that too and was hopeful, but am somewhat worried by those reporting that the discount codes disqualify a purchase from the Rakuten rebate. Anyone have recent experience with this going either way?

My last experience on that point was Rakuten refusing to honor the cash back because I used a non-Rakuten discount code.

Edited: I should correct that. My last experience on that point was Rakuten saying that using a non-Rakuten discount code disqualifies the purchase from receiving cash back, but they'd make a one-time exception for the purchase in question, but not for any future purchases.

I’ve had decent luck with the 50/150 codes but not 100/300 (though they still apply it if you do the ‘missing cash back’ inquiry)

Rakuten has 10% cash back on a lot of sites today, but wine.com is not one of them. No new deal from RMN yet either.
Yeah, best I can find right now is 5% back on TopCashBack but I'm tempted to jump on that "YT50" promo without waiting for RMN to come back with something awesome again...

If you have to ask about expiration dates, you're not buying fast enough. ;-)

Thanks for those codes! Picked up a couple Paolo Scavino Barolo Bric del Fiasc 2016 for $65/bottle shipped. Not bad
