Boxed.com now sells wine and gift cards

Introduction

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.

 

Wine Quality

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.

    For those interested, check out the Acorns app as well. Boxed shows up there too!

      Eh, I’ve never heard of Acorns. What’s it have to do with Boxed? M

        If you link your cards first with the app (Amex Cards obviously) they give a percentage, 5% back in Boxed.com’s case to you via their app. I used Acorns when it first came out with Jet.com. Got a nice little chunk of change back for something I was using anyways.

    Marshmallows? Are we being cryptic? Or are they useful as a filler item?

    • Miles per Day

      Filler item. But if you toast them over a fire with some chocolate and graham crackers…AMAZEBALLS!

    Is there a benefit for using AMEX checkout?

    • Miles per Day

      No, just the AMEX offer credit.

    • Michael

      Just makes it easier to use the AMEX offers though.

    FYI, uses AMEX checkout too!
