Did someone say wine-thirty?! When it’s time to indulge in some vino, I want easy, tasty and convenient. This is why Heartwood & Oak’s Wine Club has been a wonderful choice for me (and will be for you, too)!
1. Start with a BOGO.
This offer sounds too good to be true (but it’s not). To say thanks for joining Heartwood & Oak Wine Club, they gave me a free bottle of wine! I even got to choose between two delicious reds, two amazing whites, or one of each. The introductory offer was a wonderful way to start my new and exciting club membership (and these aren’t discount bottles)! Before I signed up, I googled the brands to discover they’re sold in the grocery story for about 18 bucks each! And get this: The first order ships free! After that it’s only about ten bucks per shipment (not too shabby).
Bubbly bonus: They even share food and snack ideas for each of their wines, so you can pick the perfect pairings!
2. Stop shipments at any time (or take a break).
The fact they don’t hook you into some expensive year-long contract impressed me! After the first ‘buy one get one’ order, if you don’t like the product, you can quit the club—no penalties or cancellation costs—even before your first full shipment! Just call (888) 661-1246 to cancel.
With Heartwood & Oak, I can stop my membership at any time. And if I don’t want to quit the club, but I’m getting too much wine (as if that’s possible), I can take a break! If I’m having a killer busy month and don’t get as much wine time as I’d like, it’s no big deal. I can always skip a shipment to catch up on the bottles I already have.
3. Build your wine cellar on a shoestring.
After my first two bottles of wine were long gone, I started receiving Heartwood & Oak’s regular shipments. The first arrived a little more than two weeks after my introductory order, and they’ve been arriving promptly every month since. Each month I get 6 new bottles of wine to try, and it only costs me a little over $13 a bottle. I looked up some of these bottles, and they’re cheaper than retail store prices!
4. Enjoy member-only offers.
I thought their members-only deals were perfect for special occasions (like my anniversary or my husband’s birthday). Twice a year, Heartwood & Oak is going to send some special bottles (they give you advance notice so you can always opt out if you don’t want them).
5. Always have a bottle ready to go.
Sure, it’s not the end of world, but not having a bottle of wine when you want or need one can be pretty annoying. An unexpected perk I found with my membership at Heartwood & Oak is I always have a bottle (or two) to take to a friend’s dinner party or to uncork with friends. Plus, I don’t have to try the same types of wine every month. I can change my wine preference anytime and get new, exciting bottles to sample.
6. Enjoy your satisfaction…guaranteed.
If a bottle they send isn’t zipping my wine bip, Heartwood & Oak will replace it free of charge!
7. Compare against others.
There are no shortages of wine clubs out there, so I perused the web to compare other, similar opportunities to joining Heartwood & Oak.
- The International Wine of the Month Club charges $17.50 per bottle and $13 for shipping. That’s nearly 25% more per bottle!
- The Fat Cork Club is $100 a month for two bottles of champagne (I like a bubbly personality as much as the next person, but no).
- The Gold Medal Wine Club costs nearly 30% more!
- Same thing with the Uncorked Venture Wine Club! Too rich for my blood.
- Lot 18 Wine Club seemed geared towards wine collectors (I’m only a collector of odd socks, notsomuch wines.)
There are many more out there, but the result was always the same–more expensive than Heartwood & Oak.
Pay attention to the small-print.
Since shipments come UPS, FedEX or other private service, there must be an adult 21 years or older present to sign for the delivery. Again, I could have canceled after the introductory BOGO offer, but if I don’t, they continue with my membership and automatically ship (and bill) the next order.
