Yeah and some places have higher price but free shipping, others have lower price but you pay for shipping. Makes it a little confusing to compare. Ultimately I think I prefer the latter, a little more transparent what you're actually paying for.It's funny how these companies throw what appears like a big discount code in your face, but then you look at their listed price is way over what many others offer, o they inflate the list price to then give you a discount so the price is actually what it should be, clever.
Like was stated, most of the time I see an inflated price it’s usually because shipping is included. You never see those low prices and free shipping, then it would really be a sale. HBO had a real good RJS sale that was 25% off and free shipping a couple months ago. Wish I’d of stocked up even more then I didIt's funny how these companies throw what appears like a big discount code in your face, but then you look at their listed price is way over what many others offer, o they inflate the list price to then give you a discount so the price is actually what it should be, clever.
It looks like the $50 Merlot kit I looked at is about 1.3 gallons based on the serving size and number of servings mentioned in the nutritional info.#ithink2020 (I hope I did that hash tag thing right) mentioned Wine Lovers in one of the threads. Being curious, I googled them and navigated to their website. The company is a wine kit seller that retails in kits under their own label. They happen to be having a sale, $10 off low-end kits so a $60 kit now sells for $50 including shipping.
It's hard to figure out the amount of juice concentrate that you're getting in the kits. The only quantifiable designation in their listings is a PABV percent. Initially I took that to be the alcohol level in the finished wine but I'm not sure since they have numbers like 7% for a Sangiovese $50 kit, 11.5% for the $55 kit, and 13.5% for the $90 kit. According to the nutrition labels, the kits are packed in Canada.
Thanks, Sour Grapes! I was pretty sure I got that wrong. Also, you taught me a new word, octothorpe. I had only known them as hash tags.
May I know where you bought the wine kit for $44 including delivery? Was it in Ohio? Did the $44 include sales tax?This thread is a great idea. I don't need more kits at the moment as I have 2 sitting ready to be made. The last one I bought was a Wine Lovers Grenache medium body for $44 including delivery. That was with a 20% off coupon. Normally $55 including delivery.
