N54: 2 Golden Week Flash Sales: CLOSED

As we always like to treat our regulars while Wine Sale 4 bottles perspectivelooking to meet (attract) new customers into our unique and almost ‘not for profit’ club……for Golden Week we are running 2 sales concurrently, for you to load up your cellars prior to the onset of the always incredibly extended SH holiday season (October to March with very few gaps). CRAAAZEE. As you will see existing customers get better deals and they do not have to pay a subscription fee to get higher discounts and special offers, unlike some sites…

FLASH SALE A :the complicated one open to existing customers or anyone new (but with the below connections)

  • We are giving away 12.5% or 15% off any wines under ¥180 (standard price);from wines in stock listed on our site, in our paper brochure or on our longlists (found on our homepage); with different offers to Newbies & Regulars.

This offer started Wednesday 24th 4pm; ends Saturday 4th october, 4pm.

  1. New customers (in Shanghai) on LinkedIn, Internations or the Beefsteak & Burgundy Club (aka Shanghailanders) can get 12.5% off our STANDARD PRICE of any wines under ¥180 in stock. Delivery (or ‘Shipping’ for our American cousins) is as per our standard delivery charges around SH (zone A, 40 through to zone D, 70). Minimum spend for newbies is now ¥2000, after the discount.
  2. Existing customers, however, always will get a little extra: 15% off by spending just ¥2000, after the discount, plus access to SALE B.

To order: email [email protected] or sms or call 15001996047. You can use the site to order if you like and we’ll apply the appropriate discount before contacting you.

As ever: No b2b, fat cat’s or the like. You know why by now. Told you it was complicated.

Q Can I combine Flash Sale A & B? Officially, ‘Yes’, if the rules for each are met.

Unofficially, If you want to combine the 2 above offers, then we can look into that on a case by case basis to negotiate a minimum spend IF you don’t meet the rules for both but we’ll need a big warm, smiley, “PLEEEEZE”…and lots of praise.

Remember: Please mention us to your new friends and colleagues and if they join our happy club to become ‘at one’ with us, we’ll sneak a treat into your next order.
