BerserkerDay IV Master Thread (discussions, info, etc - FIRST POST UPDATED)

Often the most expensive day for a Wine Berserker, whereby the deals from wineries and retailers fill the forum and make your credit cards scream for mercy...

Agreed! This is my first BD but it seems like the donor list was the way to go. Just waiting for Rasa to go live... [popcorn.gif]
Billo is a talented winemaker. We visited the winery in August and destroyed our budget. You won't be sorry!

I believe the link was in the donor table.
It is. I was also able to get to the offer through the email for the 2010 release for those on the list.
Yes, but there also is a coupon code for free shipping that you need to see the offer first. Patience.

I'm on their (LM's) website and you can order under the buy wine tab. That 2005 Syrah is very good - only one bottle left in my cellar.

As you can see, I've started posting - I'll try to put a bunch up right away, then slow things down a bit.

ITB'ers, I may have forgotten a few of you, so don't be shy in emailing me if you didn't see your offer on the list, as it could easily have been left off, particularly when we are juggling essentially 80 different wineries/retailers for BerserkerDay IV!

todd at wineberserkers.com

Now...get those Twitter accounts rolling, and Facebook posts, and share the love! Let's bring everybody over here and keep BerserkerDay the single greatest day of wine retailing evar.

Each offer has its own thread and within that thread there should be ordering instructions. Some have direct links to order, some might be ordering by email, and others might be by phone. But each thread should have ordering instructions. Welcome!

Angela, as the others have said, go back to the BerserkerDay IV Master Thread to find the sub-threads. The "first post" will be from Todd and contain the offer info.

Also, it's not like a regular sale which everything is posted at one.
Like all the other BerserkerDays, the sales trickle out for most of the day.

Whoever chose this particular day is a genius! It is normally a boring/dead Sunday with no football since we are between NFC/AFC championship games and Superbowl.

What, you aren't hyped up for the Pro Bowl? [bleh.gif]

Regardless of the 'actual' anniversary, having BerserkerDay (which should be recognized by Spellcheck at this point, BTW) on this Sunday would make a LOT of sense in the future. Great way to liven up a slow weekend for most folks.

So happy to be able to 'give back' to this community - it truly makes my day (well, that and the fact that WB Day coincides with my daughter's 14th birthday [snort.gif] )

Since I got less than 5 hours of sleep last night, and have a concert tonight...I'm going to try to rest a bit. Everything I know of is posted, and I know we're still not peaked on traffic, so more orders will be coming in for those ITB who have anything left over (so many have sold out already!).
