Does WSJwine have free shipping?
No, the WSJwine club does not ship for free. Shipping is $19.99 both on regular case shipments and on the discounted introductory case.
Is the WSJ wine club any good?
The WSJwine club is only good for certain people. I do not think it's good. I think the wine is of poor quality, lacks any character, and is overhyped. Here is are some questions I would ask someone to determine if it's a good choice for them: "Do you belong to any winery wine clubs?" "Do you routinely spend more than $20 on a bottle of wine?" "Can you, with some regularity, guess the grape in your wine by tasting it?" If you answered yes to any of these questions, I would avoid WSJwine. More on the wine from WSJwine.
Is WSJwine a good deal?
The WSJwine club is only a good deal if you find you like the wine. The wine they ship is an affordable selection of wine from around the world. If you're not sure if it's a good deal, get the introductory case and see for yourself. You'll get 14 bottles + two free stemless glasses for $89.98 ($69.99 + $19.99 for shipping) which comes to just $6.42 a bottle. Just remember, when you're considering whether to cancel, the full price you'll normally pay is closer to $15 a bottle. More on the wine from WSJwine.
Is it easy to cancel WSJwine?
WSJwine does not make it easy to cancel. To me, easy means I can go into my account and cancel my membership without interacting with a human being. You'll need to call, or email a customer service representative to cancel. I seen numerous complaints online from people who say they cancelled but continued to get charged and receive shipments afterward.
