Just bought 4 - 2018 Magnolia Blossom Pinot Bacigalupi Vineyard for 23$. The Bacigalupi vineyard produces top notch pinot noir.

Is Platinum the same as Premium?

Apparently not: https://www.wtso.com/features#platinum

I had to google it too. I'm not sure what you have to do to qualify for this though.

There are Platinum offers in both the Last Chance and Premium offers. I thought everyone saw Premium offers. If not I'm guessing all it took was an email requesting to see the Premium offers.

Can’t believe this is the first I’m hearing about “platinum offers.” Everyone is able see the “last chance” and “premium” offers. However, how can I tell which offers on the “premium” page are “platinum” offers?

I got a 2009 Figeac at the same price about a month ago.

Edit: I think the "Platinum" and "Premium" pages are merged now. But those good offers are snapped up quickly, they don't last long.

I honestly don't know the exact differences. But if I'm logged into my account there are Platinum Exclusive offers in the Last Chance Wine offerings, and there are Platinum Exclusive offerings in the Premium Selection offers. If you are not logged into your account the Platinum Exclusive offers are not displayed in either category. Marketing? Perhaps, because I don't think you can purchase without establishing an account.

Same boat for me. Must be a spending threshold.

Have you purchased from WTSO for some time? I have been a regular purchaser from WTSO for the past year+ and see no “platinum” offers when logged in. Just curious. I did send them an inquiry.

A couple of years back, "Platinum" (which required a request to access, nothing more) was changed to "Premium", which requires no special request. I used the terms interchangeably, which may account for the confusion.

I emailed WTSO yesterday requesting access to the “Platinum” offers. They emailed me back this morning and, presto, this morning I had several “Platinum offers” available to me in both the “last chance” and “premium” sections. Premium offers and Platinum offers are definitely not one in the same.

What are the platinum offers? Anything worth pursuing?

I guess Platinum has limited stock so it’s by request only to the worthy
