    All you have to do is go to your profile page and tick the newsletter box. We are going to be sending out a regularish newsletter from next week. If you opt in to receive it (you can opt out at any time by unticking the box) then a voucher worth £25 off a box of wine at http://www.nakedwines.com will appear before your very eyes 🙂

    it’s more of an objection to drug discrimination

    Well… have just ordered a case with the voucher, so we’ll see how it goes… but am not sure you can go too far wrong with 12 bottles for £55!! :oD

    Just ordered a case. Should have been £96, if you believe the sales blurb. Cost after voucher is £59 for 12 bottles. Can’t go too far wrong with that. Any half decent wine must be worth £4/5 per bottle. Should be here Tuesday.

    Simon do you have the same objection to our free hipflask offer? Do you consider it discriminatory not to also offer bottles, shot glasses and every other possible mechanism for holding a fluid stationary? Or are you under the delusion that we are living in a universe of infinite dimensions where we can somehow offer all possible free gifts and promotions at once. Does this current universe of limited and sadly chronological options disappoint you? Are we mere mortals beneath your true omnipotence?

    I’d call you an arse but then I’d have to moderate myself..

    Oh wait!

    The reader was offered a £40 voucher, redeemable at the new internet wine company Naked Wines, set up by the man behind Virgin Wines before he sold it – to Laithwaites.

    Again, the voucher promises a big discount on a first purchase – in this case, a £90 mixed case would be sent for £30. But buried in the small print is a clause stating that anyone taking up the offer will automatically find themselves paying £20 a month into a wine fund. This money could later be redeemed to buy wines at any point in the future – with a 33% discount.

    The vouchers sent out by Amazon have a different small-print clause which means anybody taking up the offer commits themselves to paying £5 a month to Naked Wines.

    “My first reaction was ‘great – a £40 wine voucher’,” said the reader, who does not wish to be named. “It even said they had sent it as a ‘thank you’ for shopping with See. It was only when I went through the small print that I discovered that, by buying the initially low-priced case, I would end up paying into a savings account to cover future purchases. What sort of offer is that?” The reader decided not to go ahead.

    A spokeswoman for Naked Wines conceded the offer could have been made clearer and said changes have since been made to its marketing materials. “If the customers prepay £10 or £20 a month, we don’t have to spend money marketing to them,” she said. “We would rather pass a 33% saving on to our loyal customers. They can cancel at any time and get their monthly payments back – which are kept in a secure trust account.”

    Just to be clear, like.

    Oh and just to be clear, I never discriminate between alcohol, heroin, crack or skunk when it comes to consumer protection 🙂 Serioulsy, nothing wrong with a voucher system, but Naked Wines is still a subscription club despite the ability to opt out at will.

    Stoner… having just bought 12 bottles of wine for £55 the £25 voucher is exactly what it says it is…

    Granted, there is then a page that comes up and asks you if you want to save a further 33% (£18ish) on that purchase by opening a wine savings account, but there was nothing stating that you could only have that £25 voucher if you opened an account. There also didn’t seem to be anything else on the site saying that you couldn’t just buy wine from them without paying any money into an account.

    So, a voucher giving you £25 off, and no need to pay any more money to them… I’m not sure what your issue is with them as there certainly didn’t seem to be anything misleading about the voucher or the website…

    As it is, having looked around the site, and knowing how much we usually spend on wine a month, putting some money into an account and then getting 33% money back on any wine we buy looks like a cracking deal.

    Didn’t seem to be Stoners issue, but the issue of that article in the Grauniad yesterday.

    I understood Stoners gripe, and I was just pointing out that the particular issue didn’t seem to be associated with the £25 voucher that I used last night.

    It may be that they have responded to that criticism and changed how things operate on the website, I don’t know, but it wasn’t how it worked for me.

    EDIT: In fact, having just read through the article again, it actually says that they have changed how things work…

    Sorry.. should have been clearer

    Simon do you have the same objection to our free hipflask offer?

    well, I did wonder what else one might drink out of one, as of course taking alcohol during a ride is a very bad idea, but most sensible liquids would be required in greater quantities 🙁

    I’d call you an arse but then I’d have to moderate myself..

    is this how we all circumvent moderation too ? It really betrays a lack of effort merely to insult someone, even if they annoy you – much better to come back with an aposite funny or ironic rejoinder, but perhaps you’re too busy?

    Maybe the “Come back to your edit page once you’ve signed up to receive a free gift.” eludes some.

    I’ll send Simon some syringe and needles.

    There Karma sorted.

    I’m sorry why would taking alcohol on a ride be a bad idea?

    What’s your address, a_a?

    I’ll register you for some junk mail – I’m sure if you roll that up it will be just as effective.

    Simon rizzlas? possibly you are tobacco free though?

    could you doubt it ? Surely only stupid people and the self-despising smoke ?? My drug of choice is of course coffee 🙂

    Well, the box arrived today.. and we are currently drinking a very very pleasant Sauvignon Blanc…

    If all the wine is this good it’s going to be hard to not drink it all far sooner than planned!

    Have none of you ever heard of the old adage that if an offer looks too good to be true, it probably is?

    These days, scams are everywhere, but there’s a foolproof way of spotting a scammer

    He/She looks and behaves just like you

    Just to be clear.. if the “Come back to your edit page once you’ve signed up to receive a free gift.” bit is a bit too confusing.

    Step 1 – Tick the box
    Step 2 – Refresh the page

    Well I shan’t bother thanks – just got one free in the box with some books. Anybody would think they’re just giving them out to anybody 🙄
