Besides loving wine, we love to find deals. It has become a game where whenever we need to make a purchase, we try to find the best deal. This is not a bad thing to enjoy doing considering we once got a first-class round trip-ticket upgrade to Asia with only one frequent flyer point per leg, per ticket. Yes, we spent a total of four frequent flyer points + the cost of an economy class ticket to fly first-class, round trip to Asia!
I’ve discussed wine. I’ve shared our love of deals. Now let’s go to wine + deals! How about if I told you we found a wine deal that is better than buying wine by the case? If you have not heard of this already, check out Wines Till Sold Out (WTSO). It is a website that sells wine 30 -70% off Internet and store prices. Each night at midnight Eastern Time, a wine is posted for sale until it is sold out. One never knows how much is available, but if it is a wine you are interested, buy it up! Once in a while, they will have “wine marathon” with 48-120 different wine choices available.
Is the wine good wine? Yes! There have been a few $100+ bottles we’ve had the opportunity to purchase and have saved for a special occasion.
Beware of a wine-buying addiction. A friend purchased so much wine that he got a gift basket from WTSO for Christmas. He now goes through periods of cutting himself off. And he is not the only one of our friends to do this.
If you want to know how WTSO works, check out this link. Frankly, you won’t find too much there as they keep the behind-the-scenes stuff a secret. However, it will answer many of your basic questions.
Happy wine shopping!
