WTSO Cheapskate Wednesday


Fine Wines. Great Prices. One at a Time.

Cheapskate Wednesday


Get Ready!

Dear Friend of WinesTilSoldOut,

Have you cleared your calendars? Did you tell your friends to send you an "emergency" call so you can bail on your sales meeting? Are you practicing your best over-the-phone cough? If not you had better do so because…

August 8th (tomorrow) is CHEAPSKATE WEDNESDAY!

Wednesday, August 8th is Cheapskate Wednesday, and we’re pulling out all the stops to offer deeply discounted wines at blazing speed. This is our "Marathon" format where each item is only available for 15 minutes or less.

 WTSO Cheapskate Wednesday

Please follow us on Facebook where we will be talking about Cheapskate Wednesday, answering questions, and posting hints about the great wines we will offer. Join the fun!

Here are the event details:

  • Cheapskate Wednesday will run from 6 AM to midnight Eastern Time.
  • We will be posting offers every 15 minutes (or sooner if an item sells out).
  • Every item will be priced from $7.99 to $18.99.
  • Ground shipping is FREE on orders of four or more bottles.
  • Except for individual requests to ship wines on a future date, all orders will ship from our warehouse by Monday, August 13th.
  • All orders MUST be placed on-line – no phone orders will be accepted.
  • We will send an email notice ONLY when the event begins. There will be NO EMAIL notices for any specific item during the event.
  • The only method of notification for EVERY item will be Twitter (details below). This is the fastest way to follow all the offers so you don’t miss a wine.

Why no emails?!: On Cheapskate Wednesday we will not send out email notifications of every new wine. We get as much feedback about this as anything else we do, so we want to clarify why we only post the updates to Twitter during the event. We want all our members to get notifications in the most convenient manner, and we don’t want you to miss a thing! However it is impossible for technical reasons to send email notices for wines that will only be available for minutes. Specifically, it takes so much time to send an email to our large member base that by the time you received the email notification that item would already be gone. Plus sending 100 emails in a single day to that many people would look suspicious and probably get our email filtered as junk. Neither of those are good outcomes.

How to follow the offers: Twitter is the best publishing medium for this kind of thing. You do not need a Twitter account to follow us. You can just load the Twitter page in your browser that day and it will refresh with each new item.

 WTSO Cheapskate WednesdayTwitter: If you have a Twitter account you can follow us or you can use a Twitter app to get notifications. Twitter also provides SMS notifications, which you activate by texting "follow wtso" to phone number 40404. Note that this is a service provided by Twitter (standard text messaging rates apply), and WTSO has no responsibility or control over delivery. You can stop that service after you activate it by replying "stop" to one of the messages. Find us on Twitter at twitter.com/WTSO

Smartphone apps: WTSO offers apps for iPhone and for Android phones. Both Apps normally notify you of new items, however we do not send these "push" notifications to iPhones during our Marathon events because they may not arrive within the 15-minute window for each offering. The Android app can be set to check for notifications every five minutes so it will work for this event.

Facebook: We will post updates, answer questions, and have some fun during the event on Facebook. However, we will not post every wine during Cheapskate Wednesday to our Facebook page. (It just isn’t being a good Facebook neighbor to do so.) So please join us on our Facebook page for insights, hints, and fun!

Have fun and good luck!

Cheers from your WTSO Team
