[Targeted] Wine Access $50 back on $150 (3x) with Amex Offer

Friday, November 22, 2019

Amex Offer: $50 off $150 at Wine Access (can be used 3x)

There's a new iteration of an excellent Amex Offer that's run before with Wine Access. This time it can be used 3x for $50 back on $150. Offer expires 2/19/2020.

A lot of the wine offers from Amex are for wine clubs, and they're usually not a good deal at all. But Wine Access is not a wine club. They have an assortment of outstanding wines with reasonable pricing, and since you can stack this offer with other angles it can lead to some seriously great deals.

1. Load the AmEx Offer to your card(s) online

I saw the offer on my Amex Personal Platinum cards, but it's probably available on other cards as well.

2. Create a Wine Access Account

Wine Access has a refer-a-friend whereby you get $50 off your first $150 order. Right now they're also running a 20% off storewide offer that seems to be overriding the $50 off $150, which is sub-optimal for orders around the $150 mark. But once you become a customer you can in turn refer friends for $50 per referral.

Here's my referral link to get started if you're new to Wine Access:


After going through the referral link you should see this at the top of the page:

3. Go through a Shopping Portal

You can get additional cashback or points & miles for Wine Access orders. To find the best cashback rates use Cashback Monitor.

Top Cashback is a reliable portal and they're currently offering 10% cashback at Wine Access. If you're not registered with Top Cashback yet here's my refer-a-friend link.

4. Spend at least $150 to trigger the AmEx Offer and Free Shipping

The way AmEx Offers work you charge the required amount ($150 in this case) and if the offer has successfully been linked to your account prior to purchase you should receive an email from AmEx right away saying you triggered the offer. The $50 back is processed a few days later as a statement credit.

If you stack the $50 referral with $50 Amex offer that's $100 off $200, plus portal cashback. That's a very good deal on wines that aren't price inflated with free shipping.

What to Buy?

From there, the challenge becomes deciding which wine(s) to buy. Their selection is constantly changing but I like that they have a mix of big names, lesser known but well regarded selections, and affordable insider finds.

One that jumps out at me is this 2014 Rudius Cab. $90 Release Price for $69.99. You can "top off" orders to arrive on round numbers just over $150.

A personal favorite over many vintages here is Coho Headwaters, a proprietary Napa blend. At $40 it's a great value.

Finally, since I love California Pinot Noir so much, is Rhys Alesia Pinot Noir.

If you fall just short of $150 or $200 total, they have an option to "top off" your order with more affordable bottles.

Put it all together and I think it's a very nice deal, probably on part with the rotating deals wine .com has been running the past few years. Like this $50 off $200 deal they're running that can also be stacked with an Amex Offer.


Exclusive: Sojourn Cellars Pinot Noir Offer

Monday, November 11, 2019

Gap's Crown Vineyard
Sojourn Cellars is a California producer known for their reliably outstanding Pinot Noir. They've once again put together an exclusive offer for WWP readers as follows:

Option 1 - Premium 6 Pack (2 bottles of each)
2017 Sangiacomo Vineyard Pinot noir
2017 Walala Vineyard Pinot noir
2017 Gap’s Crown Vineyard Pinot noir
$299 with free shipping
Retail value = $394

Option 2 - Standard 6 Pack (2 bottles of each)
2017 Sonoma Coast Pinot noir
2017 Russian River Valley Pinot noir
2017 Wohler Vineyard Pinot noir
$199 with free shipping
Retail value = $276

Option 3 - Standard 3 Pack (1 bottle of each)
2017 Sonoma Coast Pinot noir
2017 Russian River Valley Pinot noir
2017 Wohler Vineyard Pinot noir
$99 + $20 flat rate shipping

To learn a little more about Sojourn check out this quick 2-minute video that won Wine Spectator's 2019 video contest.


I've had a chance to taste a number of Sojourn's 2017 Pinot Noirs. They were all firmly in the 91-93 point range for me. Whenever I get into a slump when experimenting with wines, I find Sojourn to be a solution that gets me back where I want to be.

Sojourn's 2017 appellation Pinot Noirs have a release price in the $39-$45 range, and a single vineyards between $48-$69.

Option 1 is, I think, good for those familiar with the Sojourn portofolio and appreciate the quality and differences in their single vineyard wines. The Gap's Crown bottling can, in my experience, go beyond Outstanding to Classic.

Option 2 is the package I would recommend for most. I think Sojourn's appellation wines are a perennial value play at retail prices. At these discounted prices, including the single vineyard Wohler bottling that retails for $54, it's a terrific package. Years ago I tasted through three flights of high flying California Pinot Noirs blind. The Wohler Pinot Noir was my wine of the night, and showed strongly for the group overall. It was a 2009 I tasted that night, but my point is that Sojourn can produce tremendous wine from Wohler Vineyard so I'm excited about this bundle. Free shipping too.

Option 3 is a nice way to dip your toe into Sojourn's offerings, but alas - no free shipping.

Bottom Line

My thanks to Sojourn for allowing me to share this offer.
