I'm no wine connoisseur and enjoyed the three reds I received.

P.S. - I like your GS blog. I'm going to take advantage of some of the hits I wasn't aware of thanks to you.

We liked the zinfandel enough to seek it out again.

Our box of wine was delivered within a week of ordering. Still no miles yet.

Probably open a Zin tonight...

Nope. From the offer page two lines above where you enter your DM number:
"Can't be combined with Groupons, Coupons or other discounted offers."

As far as anyone can tell, the wine sampler package is the only one that takes a DM number and awards miles. It's $84, but you do get 12 bottles of wine.

Has anyone had miles post for this yet? I ordered on the first or second day of the Grand Slam and nothing yet.

Vinesse, however, posted almost instantly. Guess I know where to go if I want to order more vinegar-by-mail.

I too ordered on one of the first days of Grand Slam and nothing yet. I called customer service today, and they said the sample pack is back ordered. Of course, she couldn't tell me the date it would ship.

Yeah my Vinesse purchase posted! I actually purchased it on 10/02 but they use ship date as activity date so if you plan on making this a hit, don't wait until last few days.

Wine Insiders: no miles for < 12 bottles

I hit a foul ball the first week of the promo by ordering 2 bottles from Wine Insiders. I didn't realize at the time that I needed to order a 12 pack to get miles. I was hoping maybe I'd get a surprise hit.

I just called Wine Insiders customer service and played dumb asking when my miles might post. The CSR checked and confirmed that no miles will post unless a 12 pack is ordered. She said they occasionally have promotions which include miles bonuses for other purchases but that there are no such promotions right now.
