[Targeted] 2,500 Wells Fargo Rewards for $25+ at Wine.com: Too good to be true?

Friday, October 28, 2022

I was poking around the Wells Fargo Rewards site and found an offer that seems too good to be true:

Earn 2,500 Wells Fargo Rewards on $25+ purchases at Wine.com

This targeted offer is for Wells Fargo credit card holders, through the rewards site linked to their cards. You have to make the purchase with your Wells Fargo credit card, then presumably the rewards post some time later.

The crazy thing is that Wells Fargo Rewards are worth $0.01 each, so 2,500 is break-even. If you have a Wells Fargo Visa Signature card points are worth $0.015 towards airfare booked through their travel portal.

Especially since this can be repeated multiple times, this could be a very lucrative offer.

The last bit at the bottom of the terms gives me some pause. It says that the offer cannot be combined with any other offer(s), coupon code(s) or promotion(s), unless available through this site. Hmm...

Does that mean if I use a promo code to get the order down to just a little over $25, will it still trigger the offer?

What about orders that leverage StewardShip? Is that an offer or a promotion?

What if I use a gift card to cover a portion of the order?

What about gift card purchases themselves?

The way this one works is that you have to use your Wells Fargo credit card for the purchase. Is the offer nullified if I shop through a portal?

So many questions, so much potential. I wish I'd found it sooner so I could do some testing.

As always, drop me an email at wellesleywinepress@gmail.com if you'd like to discuss.

[Targeted Amex Offer] $30 off $100 at WTSO

Saturday, October 22, 2022

I found a $30 off $100 at Wines 'Til Sold Out buried in my Amex Offers on my Old Blue Cash card.

Expires 12/31/2022. They usually run gift card deals around the holidays (here's an example from last year) so that could be an optimal time to lock in the savings. Or you could just buy a $100 eGC for yourself now to lock in the savings.

There's a bunch of other wine Amex Offers going right now, most notably for Wine.com - but that seems to be more targeted than in the past. As if they're refraining from targeting people who have used Wine.com offers in the past perhaps? 

Not sure, but $30 off $100 at WTSO is a pretty good deal.


[Sold Out] Deal: 2018 AldenAlli Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir on Last Bottle

Tuesday, October 11, 2022

Last Bottle has just released what I think is a compelling offer.

2018 AldenAlli Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir for $25/btl with free shipping on 6. 

The wine retails for $48/btl and has been reliably outstanding for me over a number of vintages.

If you're new to Last Bottle you can get a $10 credit on your first order through referral.

These offers tend to go quickly - I'll update this post when it sells out.


First Look: Lockheart Restaurant in Wellesley

Thursday, July 21, 2022

Lockheart Restaurant Bar Area (click photos to enlarge)
Lockheart Restaurant opened in Wellesley last week, and we had a chance to visit tonight for the first time. The taco-driven table service restaurant and bar overtook space previously occupied by b.good (and boloco before that) after a deep and tasteful renovation. Parking is convenient with spaces in front on Central Street and in the rear parking lot for Central Plaza.

We got there very early in the evening and things started hopping shortly after. By the time we left the place was packed (thanks in part to this review on The Swellesley Report getting the word out) so it wouldn't hurt to make a reservation if you want to ensure a table.
Lockheart Dining Room
The Wellesley restaurant scene is poised for better times thanks to recently relaxed liquor laws.

I think the space will accomodate a lot of gathering situations effectively. Not so fancy as to require an occasion, but not so basic as to be boring. I thought the build-out and concept was novel, smart, and comfortable with good energy. The young staff was friendly and attentive.

Drinks and Appetizers

You can have a look at the food menu here.
And the drink menu here.

I opted for beer (Maine Beer Company Lunch IPA on tap and a Lawson's Sip of Sunshine can.) The Lockheart Standard was a hit with others in our group.

The Sheet Pan Nachos are a good way to get things going. Queso goodness finds its way to almost all of the hand-cut corn chips on the tray with good accompanying flavor throughout.

I was a little confused what the lobster guacamole would entail, but I think the photo below sums it up well. Chilled lobster claw and knuckle is presented atop very good guac with a refreshing bit of citrus acidity.

I'd encourage ordering a variety of tacos because a) They're all very unique and b) I thought they were all really good.

I tried three tacos: The Short Rib Birria, the Ribeye Steak, and the Ahi Tuna.

The Ribeye was very good, but the Birria was next-level satisfying. The Birria taco is fried and presented with consomme for dipping derived when cooking the Short Rib. Utterly delicious.

The dark red Ahi Tuna was outstanding and anchored a well-composed taco. The commitment to fresh, high quality ingredients is evident here. They also make an Ahi Tuna Poke Bowl, showing good range that I think will satisfy a wider audience and keep people coming back.
Tacos: Short Rib Birria, Ribeye, and Ahi Tuna
Bottom Line

The Wellesley dining scene is ramping up and I'm here for it. Lockheart slots in nicely next to Alta Strada and Laughing Monk Cafe (another recently opened restaurant.)

Perhaps more than anything, I can see Lockheart being a useful restaurant I'll return to frequently. Don't get me wrong: I love a good steak. It's just that I can't justify splurging on a high-end dining experience on a regular basis. Lockheart threads the fun/interesting/comfortable needle very well. I think they'll do well here in town, and I wish them many years of success.
