Last bottle is currently running a sale. You can get free shipping on a single bottle if the deals change frequently. Unfortunately, the most recent Amex Offer expired last month, but these deals can still be good if you have friends who also like wine, and the referral program can work out really well for both sides. There are big discounts on wine in these marathons. If a deal comes up, I recommend trying their Last Bottle house label, but we have seen deals on wines ranging from a few dollars up to bottles of champagne. If you love wine, this is a great deal.

The post was published for the last deal.

Every order ships for free, even for a single bottle, when you order from Last Bottle Wines. I wrote about this type of deal back in March and it was very popular, so I thought I would mention it again. I know that many frequent travelers enjoy a good bottle of wine now and then, but I don't think it has much to do with miles or points. I got some fantastic bottles from Last Bottle for good prices through the last deal like this and the new user bonus works out well for a couple in 2-player mode.

With a $10 credit, this would have been like three bucks with tax, shipped.
  • Last Bottle Wins is offering “Marathon Madness” today, which is a sale where they quickly rotate various bottles / price points of wine (the bottle on offer can sell out and change every few minutes). Here’s a link to the sale.
  • If you’re new to Last Bottle, you can feel free to sign up via my referral link with my thanks and you’ll get a $10 credit. Then, refer your Player 2 and you’ll get a $30 credit when they buy their first bottle.
  • First come, first served!
  • You must complete your purchase on each wine (no saved cart).
  • No $50 credit for buying the Last Bottle.
  • All orders placed during this marathon will be combined. Shipping begins on January 3rd, going state by state, and will require several weeks to get to all states (~2-8 weeks). I received some of my wine last time within a week of the beginning of the shipping window and some of it a couple of weeks later, but be aware that it could be as late as March.

If you like wine, you can potentially get some good nearly-free wine, but it requires a little explanation for those not familiar with Last Bottle. Most likely, these bottles won't ship out for a while.

This is how you end up with a bunch of wine.

  1. Player 1 signs up via referral link and gets a $10 credit.
  2. Before buying anything, Player 1 refers Player 2 (Note: Do not refer a Player 2 in the same household. While that worked in the past, readers noted in the comments that terms were updated to prohibit referring someone in your own household. Find a friend or family member outside of your household to be a Player 2 for this deal). Player 2 gets a $10 credit.
  3. Player 2 scouts out the cheapest bottle they want to buy (I’ve seen as cheap as $8, but at least once an hour there was something in the $12-15 range last time). After the $10 discount, out of pocket cost should be somewhere between $0.66 and $6 (you still pay tax even if your credit covers the price of the bottle).
  4. Player 1 receives a $30 referral credit after Player 2’s purchase and now has $40 in credit. Now Player 1 can use the entire $40 credit on a single bottle or split it up and buy a couple/few less expensive bottles. Out of pocket in taxes if you don’t go over your credit should be less than $4.
  5. Total out of pocket cost for 2 or more bottles of wine should be less than $10 shipped. There have been some really good options to pick up with a $40 credit.

Last Bottle Wines sells one bottle a day at a steep discount until their supply is sold out. During the wine marathon, they offer new bottles anywhere from a couple of times an hour to every few minutes and every order ships free. You have to drink a lot of water. One minute you might see a $275 bottle and the next it might be a $12 bottle. The wine descriptions during the wine marathon are brief if there is one at all, and if you pay attention you will see some bottles in the supply. I think it will run at least today and tomorrow, but I don't know for certain.

I wonder if a former Woot author wrote the descriptions for Last Bottle because the descriptions are cut from a similar thread as the ones from the past.

The last time Last Bottle ran, I found that frequent miler readers liked wine and wanted to buy me one. A bunch of you used my referral link and I purchased a bunch of wine. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of some of it. I bought and tried many bottles ranging in price from $12 up to a bottle that cost $299 and while I haven't loved every one, I've been happy on average.

The price you see on Last Bottle is already considerably discounted. For example, last time, they offered this Yount Ridge Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that is sold by Total Wine. If you played the referral deal, you could get $40 off that and pay $59 and $9 in taxes for a total of $68. The bottle is worth $68. It was really good.

It's not all that expensive. I pounced on the first bottle I saw without knowing what it was worth.

It cost me $5.29 after taxes and free shipping. I wouldn't feel bad about the gamble if I hated it and poured it out. You pay tax but don't ship.

The cheapest thing I saw last time was $8. While I wouldn’t have high hopes here, the tax would come to $0.66. If you’re following the instructions at the top of this post and Player 2 were to pick up something like this, you would spend $0.66 and trigger the $30 referral credit for Player 1.

The referral credit was posted in my account after my wife purchased a bottle.

If you followed the directions at the top, Player 1 would have 40 credits. All of that credit can be used on a single bottle. The wine is often discounted below retail so a $40 bottle can be pretty nice.

I grabbed this last night and figured it sounded interesting enough for $43.

I am not a big drinker, but I do enjoy a glass of wine a few times a year, so this seemed like an easy win to me.

There are tips.

  • After you sign up, set up your account with a preferred shipping / billing address and payment info. That $12 bottle of Shiraz sold out because we hadn’t done this.
  • If you’re logged in at Last Bottle, you’ll find a link to your referral info right at the bottom of the home page as seen here:

Don't worry, enjoy!
