SmallLogo WTSO Marathon Fine Wines. Great Prices. One at a Time.

Full-On Marathon

Coming October 2nd.

Make room in the cellar!

Dear Member of WinesTilSoldOut,

Clearing your calendars is not enough for this next event. You had better go down to your cellar start drinking those wines taking up precious space. You will need the room for all the wine you are going to want from our upcoming huge wine event.

October 2nd is our Full-On Marathon!

Tuesday, October 2nd is our Full-On Marathon and we’re pulling out all the stops to offer discounted, high-end wines at blazing speed. This is our original Marathon format where each item is only available for 15 minutes or fewer.

Facebook WTSO MarathonPlease follow us on Facebook where we will be talking about this crazy event, answering questions, and posting hints about the great wines we will offer. Join the fun!

Here are the event details:

  • The Full-On Marathon will run from 6 AM to midnight Eastern Time.
  • We will be posting offers every 15 minutes (or sooner if an item sells out).
  • Prices of all wines will run between $15.99 and hundreds of dollars. (As we said, this is Full-On!)
  • 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.
  • To keep our overhead to a minimum there will be NO COMBINING ORDERS throughout the day. If you order three different wines you will receive three different shipments. (We work in assembly line-format for shipping and would need traffic lights to deal with all of the scrambling around the warehouse if we combined orders.)
  • As always, future shipping can be requested on our checkout page.

Why no emails?!: During the Full-On Marathon we will not send out email notifications for 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.

Twitter: 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 the Full-On Marathon 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
