I love Boxed. Not on a daily basis. Only when they have a $20 off $50 AMEX offer or a $15 off $50 AMEX offer like they do now. In the past, I bought probably a year’s supply of toilet paper, paper towels, stamps, etc. Eventually I ran out of things to buy, and I looked through ALL of their products. However, the great thing about them is they do add new stuff to their site, so it was shock to me that I saw this the other night:
After browsing some more, I saw this in the drop down:
About those Boxed.com gift cards
First off, they do trigger the AMEX offer credit email, so it’s safe to assume you’ll get the $15 credit. Secondly, it’s not a gift card per se, but a promo code. You CAN stack at least 2 promo codes + pay with 1 AMEX card on say a $150 order. Third, use iconsumer (not sure about portal cb on the GC; currently pending.) Fourth, marshmallows are your friend. Fifth, the 12 bottle sets are a better value on a per bottle basis.
I asked my resident miles & points wine aficionado, Robert Dwyer, on Twitter and this is what he says
Remember that everything is relative. If you’re not a big wine drinker, you may not know the difference and it may be good for you. My wife buys the $4 bottles of wine at Total Wine, so this may be a step up from that. Remember, you should be able to get 12 bottles for say $150 – $45 (AO) – $6 (portal) = $99 for 12 bottles = $8.25 out the door. I decided to go with this set because I like proseccos, moscatos (hopefully not too sweet) and sparkling rose wines. By the way, Asian moms loooove moscato.
