I placed my order and here was the shipping info on the receipt. Not sure why AZ would be such a greater delay (?).

IMPORTANT SHIPPING DETAILS ABOUT DELIVERY TIMES - PLEASE READ!

Due to state laws and regulations, wine delivery shipments will vary. For most orders, please allow 10 - 14 days for delivery (AZ 3-4 wks). Tracking information will be emailed to you when your order has been processed for shipment.
Interestingly enough they have a 24 hour wine consultant hot line. Must get some interesting calls in the middle of the night.

I appreciate this separate thread. I want to add that when I last participated in the GS, this was supposed to be one of my hits. Good price - about $10 for two bottles of wine and a bottle opener - so I placed the order. Alas, nothing, not even a charge on my next cc statement. Ended up one hit short of my last four, and out of time to recoup. So, my questions to mikeefe are, was this possibly because this isn't allowed in Massachusetts, and did you try it? Thank you.

Your post made me laugh a hair below spitting my coffee out. The rube in the seat next to me then stared me down.

2 hours until NY and then I can resume my quest for 100K x 2 accounts.

Not sure if this has changed from last year but MA is a state where they will ship.

Thank you, Diamondback, I guess. Thought it might have been one of our relic Blue Laws. Then it must just be my luck. I was afraid of that... (And thank you again, seriously.)

Hadn't even thought of it, to tell you the truth!

Out of town this coming week, let's talk soon.

Good. And - whoops - just remembered that you don't drink... Sorry.

Despite the disclaimer, my order on 9/25 for Arizona was shipped on 9/27 via FedEx. Hopefully this is directly to me and not to a drop-shipment point.

Wow I got my shipping confirmation email yesterday and my wine was delivered today. They still haven't charged my AMEX nor has the hit posted to my DM account.

I'm going to have a fun time drinking it this weekend.

I did order the sampler, but haven't gotten any miles posted yet. The package just arrived Thursday.

I did end up with two of the corkscrews, rather than just one.

I don't have my points yet, but there's still time. I think the corkscrew was a pretty nice freebie. Anyway, I had a party tonight and the three reds were a hit. I especially liked the zin.
