Dear Friend of WinesTilSoldOut,

It is time to clear your calendars! The online wine event of the quarter is officially on the books. It is coming like a freight-train so you had better reschedule all meetings, practice your best over-the-phone cough so you don’t have to go to work, or find a quiet cubicle in your office away from any work-related distractions. Get ready because…


February 20th is Cheapskate Wednesday, and we’re pulling out all the stops to offer you deeply discounted wines at blazing speed. This is our "Marathon" format where each wine is only available for 15 minutes or less.

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 6am 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 in one order
  • Except for individual requests to ship wine on a future date, all orders will ship from our warehouse by February 25th, 2013.
  • 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. (NOTE: Twitter is only a method of notification. Every offer will be presented on the website.)
  • You may not hold or reserve wines in your cart. This is an active martket with limited quantities available. If you see a wine you want you must act fast and make your purchase before it sells out. Once a wine is gone it is gone.

Why no emails?!:
On Cheapskate Wednesday 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 on 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 would receive the email notification that item would already be gone. Plus sending over 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.

: 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

NEW! Smartphone Apps
: We have updated our mobile apps for iOS & Android Platform (Finally!). These new apps are easy to use, give full explanations of the tasting notes & ratings and allow easy access to your order history & My Cellar accounts. Both apps normally notify you of new items however, these "push notifications" are not fast enough to handle the speed of the event. Therefore, no push alerts will be sent to the apps.

: 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
