Would like to give this a try, it's just that I've had some seriously ropey to average wines from there in the past. Has it got any better, or have I just been choosing dodgy wines?

Very good discount unless they're overpriced to compensate for the continuous flood of discount codes & opening offers!?!?!?
(Think I'll stick to Majestic for pretty good product knowledge, helpful staff & decent prices)

@CHARLIETHIRTYTWO - they came good with the free case of wine some time ago when you join their discovery club, cancelled it no questions asked with just one email. So I'd say that this is genuinely a good deal although I've no idea how much wine "really" costs.

I wasn't knocking your post, as I say it is a very good discount but merely pointing out that these offers can be a bit like giving/advertising discounts based on RRP's....a product can be made to seem like a bargain because of a vastly overpriced start price.
I do have to admit I haven't tried Virgin wines to gauge this offer on the qualilty of their range & I guess it also depends on what you normally pay per bottle.
(Heated & repped based on % discount on the offer)

What is the code & password to enter in the voucher box to get the £40 discount?

Virgin Wines used to be pretty good when they first started out a few years ago, now find them overpriced.

Better deals and offers to be had from Tesco when their promotions are on, they currently have 20% off all wines and free delivery if you order for delivery between 5th and 18th March.

I've been a customer of Virgin Wines for about 18 months now and I very rarely buy wine anywhere else - maybe the odd bottle from Waitrose. I'm also already on WineBank. I can see a few of you have some questions about the quality of this offer so I'll try to answer them for you. Although, obviously, I've only got my own experiences to go by.

Virgin don't do cheap wine like some of the supermarkets so don't bother if that's what you're looking for. I usually get a case made up for me with a mixture of less expensive wines at £6 and a few more expensive ones at £8-£10.

I do think they are good value and I'm usually very happy with the price I pay. Compare Virgin Wines' current price for Bollinger with Thresher's current price. Virgin Wines list price for a bottle of Bolly is £31.99 but is currently on offer for £26.99. Threshers sell their Bolly for £40.49! Even with Thresher's permanent 3 for 2 offer, the avg bottle price still comes in exactly the same and Virgin's - £26.99. So who's pulling a fast one there? Also, if I don't like one of the wines I've had from Virgin I get a refund - can't say fairer than that really.

I've got my own 'wine advisor' who looks after me. Mark knows what I like and what I don't and makes fantastic recommendations - often getting me to try wines I would never pick up myself and usually love.

The WineBank is great for me because I don't like buying the mixed cases. I prefer to have my own mix of wines and WineBank means I can do that and get a bit of discount too. I pay in £30 a month and usually pick up a case every 2-3 months.

And, as an answer to the comment about Tesco's having 20% off at the moment - derr.... WineBank gives you 25% off everything, all the time!!

If you love wine I would seriously recommend giving Virgin, and the WineBank, a go.

You ARE a Virgin employee and I claim my £5 :giggle:

Their wine is very, very bland and totally overpriced.

Kinda agree that it can be ever so slightly 'suss' when the first post made by a new member is so comprehensively defensive & glowing in it's praise of a company but I guess we've all gotta have a first post!!!..I look forward to your next ones on the Virgin Credit card thread...& that Virgin Megastore thread...& then there was that Virgin mobile thread......
(IF we are jumping to totally the wrong conclusion I wholeheartedly apologise!?!?!)

As I said I used to be a regular Virgin Wines Customer since they started out in 2000, but haven`t used them for the past 2 years because of the gradually increase in the prices.

Dont fall into the trap of thinking just because you are paying £60 - £90 a case
that its really worth it, the wine maybe ok but is probably available elsewhere cheaper!

If you`ve only been a customer for 18months you probably dont realise the prices were cheaper before. Why do you think they always offer vouchers for Virgin Wines, because prices are expensive anyway, its like 3 for 2 offer at Threshers, people think they are getting a bottle free but the prices are inflated anyway.

In truth a lot of the 'deals' here on HotUKDeals fall into this trap. The best deals are ones where a supplier has substantially uncut all the competition or do this through the use of a voucher/code, however a large number of deals are posted based the reduction from the RRP or inflated prices that no-one on a site like this would be (or should be) paying in the first place!
Hey, I'm not knocking the OP, most of us that have posted have listed the RRP to show what a 'great discount' you're getting (myself included) but the truest test of a deal is probably to say to yourself "What would I pay for this item/What do I feel this item is worth" & then look at how much cheaper the poster has found it...for example if I would normally pay £5-7 for a bottle of wine & a comparable bottle is posted @ £4 then that to me is a deal.
Just my opinion though & ultimately it's each to his or her own!!!

errr... I do not work for virgin wines! I'm just a happy customer. I'm new to this blogging and posting stuff but I thought I might give you some helpful insights - I don't think I'll bother next time. I'm happy with what I pay for what I drink. use them, or don't use them - I don't care. :-(
