This offer is LIVE now! Be sure to take advantage of it ASAP or you can’t get it in time for all the spending you’ll do on BerserkerDay (and all the points you’ll earn!)

And BTW, I had the ‘old version’ of this, just the rewards program, not the card, and from my purchases I’ve already used it for a Riedel decanter, as I forgot I had the points!

Ok, folks, I just talked to Matthew about this, and if no ads, Preview Day/Early Purchase Offers, bonus WineBid credit from the last promotion aren’t enough for the TWENTY FIVE DOLLAR minimum per year for GCC status, the GCC bonus offer is worth $450, but you can’t see it, or get it, without being GCC.

Quick peek tells me point values are around 0.5c/ea to 0.75c/ea in most cases. Let’s call it 0.67c for the sake of easy math. So sign up bonus is 75-85k (worth roughly $500-550) + 2 Grassl Glasses. Maybe around $600 or so of value in the sign up bonus.

Then BD 6x and normally 3x points on wine purchases means that you’ll net around 4% return on BD and 2% return the rest of the year on your wine purchases. That could be slightly higher if you go ham one month with a single merchant for the 2x bonus (8x on BD, for instance would net out around ~5.4%). Either way, it’s hard to justify ever putting any non-wine spend on this card given that 2% cash back cards are very prevalent and a few are even $0 annual fee.

Wearing my points & miles hat, this is a decent sign up value and potentially a good opportunity on BD, but a tough card to suggest “holding” unless they add some type of card anniversary benefit that has broad appeal and is legitimately worth >$100.

Pretty good math. We think the card is a great deal on wine purchases and I suppose it partly comes down to whether or not you want cashback or miles or points that you can only spend on wine! We are just getting started and have lots of things in the works that will deliver great value. Thanks for giving us a chance!

So I went to the proofloyalty site and the La Jota 2016 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon at $150 is $5 more than Wine.com, whose prices are only tolerable with a 30% off coupon.

Signed up and approved!
I will give it a chance. The initial benefits are outstanding and the points will be used to get some wine glasses that my family will break. GG gold.
Thanks
Ken

This is a great offer! I signed up for the Grand Reserve credit card during the launch this past summer, and I must say this intro offer is the best I’ve seen!

What happened to the hotel link?

Website doesn’t seem to be working…“Apply Now” button wouldn’t work even after refreshing then closing my browser.

Was really happy to find the card offer for the GrandReserve Mastercard!! Have tons of Miles just sitting there, not sure when I might be using them in the near future, so why not get one the pays me handsomely for my 'Liquid Hobby"!! Just got my card…and already racked up allocations of a few wineries on it today… (and one was a Partner winery so picked up 5xs points!) And reading that on BerserkerDay using the card will get 6xs points on non-partners and 8xs points for those partnering with GR is pretty compelling!! (Knowing Flannery Beef and Grassl are partners are just an added bonus - 8xs points for meat and stemware… Score!!)

The hotels portion of ProofLoyalty is currently offline due to some of the ongoing pandemic restrictions right now. They are hoping to relaunch it soon!

I used the links and got signed up. Took maybe 60 seconds and couldn’t have been easier. I’m looking forward to getting the card in the mail and making my purchases on Berserker Day.

Hi, Chris Barnes here- founder of ProofLoyalty. We work directly with the wineries to get insider access to smaller production wines and wines typically reserved for club members. In some cases, we’re able to negotiate discounts. In others not, it’s a moving target and worth keeping an eye on the site. Purchasing with Grand Reserve points is the ultimate discount.

Sorry, I’m not seeing how the math on this equates to $450.

Sorry, the GCC bonus is worth $70-90, apparently - the 75k bonus (the spend bonus at 90 days) is the one worth that much…

Gotcha.

To clarify, we can get the 75,000 points on sign-up, PLUS the 75,000 spending bonus?
