Right - if you spend over $500, it's an additional 15% off.

Plus there's 2017 Bruno Lorenzon Champs Martin at a significant discount.

site has screwy math. I’ve entered $1571.88 worth of wine, used the KNOCKKNOCK15 and it takes off only $60.29. Nobody answers their live chat to explain.

Alan, I just checked and the math worked for me. I put in 6 bottles. Maybe some other wines don't qualify for the 15%?

Thanks for the tip!
With the new client 20% off, these were the net prices I paid before tax and shipping:

Krug Grande Cuvee 168th Edition NV $128.79
Louis Roederer Cristal 2012 $157.59
Billecart Salmon Brut Rose NV $55.99

I bought a total of ten bottles and the shipping was 30 to Southern California!

Mark - odd. . . it was $22 for 6 pack to SoCal via ground.
And $25 for 8 375 to so cal including their four dollar buyer protection fee. By far the best price since March. The best I could find yesterday was $72. So can’t say it isn’t worth it. That shipping cost is pretty reasonable these days for 8, which is a awkward number to ship..

By the way to 375s cost

Bizarre. To ship to MA, obviously much closer, it's $48 for 6 btls.

zachys was pretty cheap to ship to CA; not sure why. it's exorbitant to ship to PA, probably b/c they need a 3rd party shipper.

Looks like the Cristal moved to futures. Discount wasn't applying at checkout.

Thanks for posting this, Troy! I picked up six 750s and six 375s of Krug. Shipping was $56 to MN - about normal these days.

I one think the shipping was high if you chose other than "ground." $30 shipping of ten bottles of champagne, and four are in OWC packaging so it is probably two boxes. Given the huge savings I realized, well worth it....

Incorrect, at least to MA or RI. UPS Ground shipping is $48 for 6 bottles and $50 for 12 no matter what I put into the cart, including 375s.

Zachy's is in NY, and they charge more to ship to MN than to ship to CA? To Minnesota, 3 bottles shipping is $49, not including their protection fee.

$24 for seven bottles to CA. That's about as cheap as in-state shipping. I went ahead and sprung the extra $5 for shipping insurance. Still getting the Krug at a strong discount.

$58 on a half-case to WI, not including the extra $4 for protection. Kind of kills the deal.
