Christmas Comes Early! WineBid Rebates ONLY for Wine Berserkers!

#1 Post by Todd F r e n c h » November 18th, 2020, 1:59 pm

Let's brighten up this terrible year with a fantastic gift from WineBid and WineBerserkers, shall we???

WineBid.com's new CEO, Russ Mann, has been somewhat active on the forum lately, at my urging, and while he was sipping wine, reading a post recently about WineBid, with feedback from Berserkers (true story), he decided he wanted to give the Berserkers a gift. Here's what we came up with:

For any WineBerserker that makes a purchase of $150+ on WineBid from now until December 27, 2020, WineBid will add a $30.00 WineBid Wallet Credit to your WineBid account AND you'll receive a free Grand Cru Crü membership for one year!

--Existing Grand Cru Crü members, you have your own special offer! Click HERE to see yours!-- (only Grand Cru Crü members can see the post in this link)

More details and the sign up form (for those who are not yet GCC members) are available HERE

The 'best online coupons and deals' threads have been very busy lately, and here's one JUST for Berserkers!! Happy Holidays!

The 'back label' points for those who don't want to read them on the WineBid offer page, apparently: neener

The “back label”:
• Offer ends at 7pm Pacific on Sunday, December 27, 2020.
• You must be a WineBerserker without a Grand Cru Crü membership to receive this rebate & Grand Cru Crü membership.
• WineBid purchase of $150+ is determined prior to buyer's premium or tax.
• To qualify for this rebate, $150+ must be on one invoice, and cannot be combined with other referral or new customer promotions.
• One rebate per person (based on WineBid email address, billing/shipping address, and WineBerserker username).
• WineBid Wallet Credit will be added to your account within 48 hours of weekly auction close date, regardless of Buy Now or Auction purchase.

For those unfamiliar with Grand Cru Crü, here's a primer: GCC Members:
• See no ads
• Get sneak previews the day before BerserkerDay
• Can purchase from the Early Purchase Offers on Preview Day (BerserkerDay)
• Have longer signature capabilities
• Custom WB badge designating GCC status and importance to the world at large
• Can opt in to the WineBid Search Bar (off by default for GCC)
Apparently I'm lazy, have a narrow agenda, and offer little in the way of content and substance (RMP) (and have a "penchant for gossip" -KBI)

This is awesome! Thanks for doing this Todd and Russ.

Is the invoice purchase amount over just one bottle or multiple one? I.e. can I in one invoice purchase multiple wines collectively worth $150+ or is it just over a single bottle?

I’m sure Russ will chime in on this thread but we DID discuss this - it’s not piecemeal, it’s one purchase, as it’s tough to consolidate many smaller orders

I understand it doesn’t carry over weeks. But let’s say one week I purchase three $60 bottles spending $180 that auction week, does the credit apply, or do I need to purchase a single bottle/lot worth $150+?

One auction - not one lot - several bottles but one auction, and I think they have three more big auctions before end of year

Hi everyone! It's true- I was drinking a nice bottle a couple weeks ago, answering some Berserker questions on shipping and discussing our new shipping functionality. You all were being so nice and appreciative, I thought- we really need to do something special for the Berserker community, and I also wanted to do something to support Todd/WineBerserkers as a site (or maybe I had just had too much wine...)


The fine print on the back label:
The credit will be applied within a few business days after your qualifying buy.
You need to register for the promotion in the links Todd posted, so we can apply the right credit- it won't happen automagically...
You need to register by Dec 23 and make a qualifying purchase by our final auction of the year on Dec 27.
Only one credit per account. Can not be used with any other discounts/promotions.
Any questions, please use WineBid customer service online chat/email/phone.

A very happy early holidays. Hope you can all get some great wines to taste and share, even virtually for the holidays. Thanks to everyone for supporting WineBid and WineBerserkers as well.

This is very nice. Can you explain how this interacts with the new member "$30 off $100" offer? If you are new, register, and make a $150 purchase which offer will apply? Are both available (even if for separate purchases)?

You are not currently a GCC member so you'd get the $30 rebate, and GCC membership for a year

Thanks Todd but I'm still confused. The "$30 off $100" offer that I am referring to is a WineBid thing - it is a standing offer that they have for new members.

New WineBid members? Yeah, he wanted this to be better than that offer, hence the $40

That's great! Does it have to be $150 in one purchase, or just $150 spent between now and 12/27? I tend to graze the auctions.

Remember, GCC members go to the GCC link/offer - don't sign up for the wrong one!

I'm going to update the OP with the 'back label' points on the WineBid page, as some apparently don't want to read it, where many questions are already answered neener

Hi all, hope all your questions were answered. To sum up the questions I've seen so far:
* It needs to be $150 on one invoice, not across multiple auctions. But it can be any number of wines- 15 at $10 or 1 at $150.
* It does not include buyer's premium, taxes or shipping.
* The old "$30 for a new member" is no longer active. Besides this is better- you don't have to be a new member at WineBid AND you get $30 PLUS a Grand Cru Cru membership!
* The current "get $30 for referring someone who spends $100" is active- but for that, you'd have to refer someone else. This is a gift for YOU for participating on WineBid and WineBerserkers.

I think that answers everything from above.

We have a TON of great wine in auction this week, and we "may" have some great Black Friday/Cyber Monday specials coming in, so register soon, watch the auctions and bid early to win.

Happy bidding, winning, tasting, sharing!

I have been buying from Winebid for a few years now and have never had an issue with the wines. There is nothing better than getting a case of aged wines at a good price, ready to drink.

I think no response is confirmation of same! Sweet! neener

I heard from Tess at WineBid last night - over 100 Berserkers signed up already!!! Russ has assured me there is a LOT of wines coming up between now and when the offer ends

What is the GCC offer? Should I join the GCC and then sign up for the GCC offer? Or just do the one for non-GCC members?

What is the GCC offer? Should I join the GCC and then sign up for the GCC offer? Or just do the one for non-GCC members?
There are many other benefits of GCC (listed on the OP) so I'd take this one

Does the $150 include buy it now wines or only via an auction?

I have been buying from Winebid for a few years now and have never had an issue with the wines. There is nothing better than getting a case of aged wines at a good price, ready to drink.
I agree 100% my friend. I know you and I have been very happy Winebid customers for many years now. Very intuitive platform, great selection of wines, and amazing customer service. The fact that Russ is an active member of the community now and providing generous offers like this just kicks it up another notch. I'm a big fan and will continue to purchase regularly (i.e weekly) and sing their praises to other wine lovers. Cheers Russ!

I just went through the first spreadsheet of those who entered the rebate offer, and found quite a few (15) Grand Cru Cru members who signed up for this offer. Remember, you have your own special offer here - viewtopic.php?f=86&t=174997

For the rest of you, Tess from WineBid told me that they have Black Friday deals starting this Sunday, going through the next two weeks. Smart to buy during this time, because then you know you have your purchase requirement well in time to be counted and then awarded the rebate.

Todd - after submitting your details, do you get any notification back confirming that you have successfully signed up for this offer?

Signed up this morning and cleared $150+ at auction tonight pre tax and pre premium. When will I receive the $30 credit and the GCC membership?

Andy and Cliff,

I think WineBid outlined it a bit on the page, here (and copied above):

• WineBid Wallet Credit will be added to your account within 48 hours of weekly auction close date, regardless of Buy Now or Auction purchase.

As for GCC status, you'll get that when WineBid sends me the information/registrations. As soon as I confirm, I'll enter the details and you'll be GCC for a year!

As for notification, Andy, yes, I believe they will be in contact, but don't think they work over the weekend so it might not be until early this week. I did confirm with them Friday on the batch they sent me, and yours was on there :)

Just FYI, I confirmed the first batch of Berserkers who have already made their requirement in purchases to earn the rebate :)

I do believe WineBid will reach out with the info, but expect the credit within 48 hours, I believe they told me

First round was roughly 10% of those who registered for the promotion, I think. I believe there are two more auctions before end of promotion, so get bidding!

I'm putting together a bunch of stuff, low cost California Syrah, Chenin, and others that should be over $150 when this week's auction is closed. Already did the web form.
