Sometimes there are long running offers which we don’t mention because they have been around, unchanged, forever. Now and then I like to dust one off. A good example is this long-running offer of 3,000 Flying Club miles for your first order from Virgin Wines.
Virgin Wines used to be part of Laithwaites which runs most of the mail-order wine clubs under different brands, including British Airways Wine Explorer, but was sold in a £14m management buyout a few years ago.
At present, you can join their ‘Discovery’ wine club and buy a half-price mixed case of wine for £65. Virgin Wines will throw in a free bottle of champagne as well!
12 bottles of wine, a bottle of champagne and 3,000 Flying Club miles is not a bad deal for £65. You also get free next day delivery.
There is no obligation to make further purchases, although you will receive 750 miles per case if you do.
As you are forced to join the ‘Discovery’ wine club, you will need to cancel your membership after the first case has arrived or they will try to sell you further cases on a regular basis.
