It’s a depressing fact of life post-child that I can’t hold my drink like I used to. Although that won’t stop me from trying!
Seriously though, I’m hardly a booze hound, but like many busy mums I do look forward to wine o’clock.
Fine wines can be an expensive habit so I was very interested to learn about the Tesco Wine Co-Buys deals. The premise is simple but winning: basically the more people who buy, the better the price becomes for everyone.
Let’s say you were planning a dinner party or a girlie night in — you could hook up with your buddies on one of the Co-Buys and drive the price of the booze down. That’s potentially more savings than a BYOB affair!
Co-Buys only run for a short time, and stock is limited, so the trick is to sign up (just enter your email) for free alerts on the web site.
How to Start a Wine Co-Buy
Mosey on over to the Tesco Wine Co-Buys site and browse through their available offers. You’ll see a tantalising selection of Co-Buys that are coming soon and that’s your chance to register for an alert.
You can also get a flavour of what the deals are like from their Previous Co-Buys listed at the bottom. For example, a classy Châteauneuf-du-Pape Promenade des Papes, 2010, retail price £125 went at £60 in its final price, with 20 co-buyers. Fab!
There’s anything from gorgeous New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs to luscious Riojas coming up in the next Co-Buys. But if you don’t see anything you like, you can also Request a Co-Buy and Tesco will make sure to stock the most popular requests.
And did you know that if you bring more shoppers than anyone else on to a Co-Buy, you could get yours for absolutely free?
