Need to stock up on wine, beer, or spirits? Then drink in this Total Wine Amex Offer!

The offer is valid online only at TotalWine.com. Cardholders who add the Total Wine Amex Offer to their card receive a one-time $30 statement credit when using the card on one purchase of at least $150 at TotalWine.com.

The Total Wine Amex Offer expires on October 31, 2020.

Total Wine Amex Offer: Save $30 when spending $150 at TotalWine.com!

I received the offer across all my American Express cards. I added it to my business Delta Reserve Amex because I’m working toward the MQM bonus spend threshold. Plus, Total Wine doesn’t receive bonus points or cashback on any cards.

If you personally don’t consume alcohol, keep in mind TotalWine.com sells glasses and other kitchenware. And mixers like soda water, soda pop, water, etc.

Total Wine Amex Offer: Some Very Important Fine Print

It’s worth reiterating a few details that may or may not make the offer worth it for you.

$150 Minimum Order

The $150 threshold can’t be broken up across multiple transactions. Instead, you have to spend at least $150 on one purchase. So if you need an excuse to treat yourself to an expensive bottle of wine or whiskey, this might be your shot. (Pun fully intended!)

Expensive bourbon

I ended up saving a bunch of money — after stacking some Total Wine loyalty points with a wine sale.  We stocked up on wine for Thanksgiving and got some bourbon, too.

Online Only

I mentioned this a couple of times above — but please remember this offer is valid only at TotalWine.com. You won’t receive a discount if you into a Total Wine store and start your shopping session there.

Consider having your order shipped (more on that below), delivered, or use in-store pickup, or curbside pickup.

I ordered online and used the curbside pickup option. It triggered the Amex Offer.

Offer Valid in Certain States

The Total Wine Amex Offer — in addition to being online only and carrying a $150 single-order minimum — is valid for fulfillment in the following states:

  • Arizona
  • California
  • Colorado
  • Delaware
  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Illinois
  • Kentucky
  • Maryland
  • Minnesota
  • Missouri
  • North Carolina
  • New Jersey
  • New Mexico
  • Nevada
  • South Carolina
  • Tennessee
  • Texas
  • Virginia
  • Washington
  • Wisconsin

Worth noting: several Delta hub locations are in there (California, Georgia, Minnesota, Washington), as are some focus airport states (North Carolina, Tennessee).

Gift Cards?

From what I found, TotalWine.com sells only physical gift cards online — and those don’t apply toward the $150 minimum.

Final Approach

Unfortunately, Total Wine locations aren’t everywhere — and the shipping rules are somewhat prohibitive. But for folks who can afford to drop $150 (ultimately $120) on a single purchase at TotalWine.com, this is an excellent way to save 20% on beverages — while stocking up and/or treating yourself.

Bottoms up!

    • I agree. But better than nothing for people (like me) who needed to stock up on a few “essentials” 😉 .

  1. Thanks for sharing this Chris, stocked up today and stacked it with a Total Wine coupon I had for some additional savings. Curbside pick up was a breeze here in the Twin Cities.

  2. Thanks for this – I got an instant email saying my $30 cash back was redeemed (like 1 minute after ordering). Combined with the Total Wine 10% offer code (4238) it was a nice deal!
