We frequently hear from our members how much they love being a part of our Wine Club. Over the years, our members have become our biggest ambassadors, sharing and recommending our wines with friends and family. At long last, we’ve created a way to reward our members for spreading the good word about our wines and winemaking philosophy: a Wine Club referral program!
Members now have the opportunity to receive a $20 coupon for every new Wine Club member they refer. Their $20 coupon can be applied to online, phone, or email orders from our wine shop. These coupons don’t expire and members can combine multiple coupons to one order; if a member makes five referrals, they can receive $100 off an order of delicious Beckmen wines!
We’ve sweetened the deal even more… when a member refers someone to our Club, the new member also receives a reward! The new member will get $10 off their first quarterly Wine Club release.
A $20 coupon for you, a $10 discount for them, it’s a no brainer.
How it Works
Existing Wine Club members can refer new members to the Club following these simple steps:
- Login to your online account and click “Manage Account”. (We launched a new website in June of 2019, so your old password won’t work. Click the “Forgot your password?” link to reset your password.)
- In your account information, click the “Refer a Friend” button.
- Send your unique URL with a personalized message to friends and family via email, text, Facebook, Twitter, and more. There is no limit to how many people you can refer!
- Once they register for the Club using your unique link, and their first release has been billed, we will email you a $20 coupon.
- Redeem your $20 coupon for any online, phone, email, or tasting room wine order (the coupon is not valid for Wine Club releases, shipping, or tax).
You’re welcome to call us at 805−688−8664 (extension 210 for Wine Club) if you need any assistance.
Frequently Asked Questions
We welcome any feedback you may have on this referral program.
Here are a few questions we’ve received since launching the program:
Please Note: Each coupon code can only be used once. So if you have an order that is less than $20, you cannot apply some of the coupon to this order and save the remaining balance for another order.
Question: How will I receive my $20 coupon after I make a referral?
Answer: Your coupon will be emailed to you after the new member has been billed for their first quarterly release.
Question: I can’t find my unique URL. Where do I locate it?
Answer: If you are already logged into your account, click “My Account” and then look for the black “Refer a Friend” button. If you aren’t logged in, click “Log In” and after entering your credentials, click “Manage Account”, then the black “Refer a Friend” button. Your URL is highlighted in blue about half way down this Refer a Friend page.
Question: How do you know I was the person who referred my friend or family member?
Answer: Your unique referral URL, found after you login to your online Beckmen account, is linked to our Wine Club software. We are notified when someone joins our Club after clicking your URL.
Question: My brother said he signed up for the Club, but I haven’t received my $20 coupon. What do I do?
Answer: It’s possible he didn’t click your unique URL and joined the Club by accessing our website directly. Or, he could have deferred his first shipment to the next quarter (so we haven’t actually billed him for his first release). If you think you should’ve received a coupon by now, contact our Wine Club manager, either by emailing email@example.com or calling 805−688−8664 extension 210.
Question: Can I apply my $20 coupons to my quarterly Wine Club release?
Answer: No, these coupons can only be applied to new orders placed by phone, email, or online.
Question: Why does my friend get $10 off their first release, but I can’t apply my $20 coupon to my quarterly release?
Answer: When someone joins our Club, their first release is always billed manually by our Club manager, so she is able to apply their $10 coupon as she’s billing their order. Existing members are “batch billed” for quarterly releases; our software will automatically bill members, thus, we are unable to input a coupon for one member over another.
Question: I have multiple $20 coupons — can I redeem them all on one order?
Answer: Yes! Simply enter each code followed by a comma in the “OFFER CODE” field at check-out. Just remember, a coupon code can not be entered more than once so make sure the sub total is a large enough value.
Question: I have enough coupons for a free order, so why is it showing I still need to pay $18.50?
Answer: These coupons cannot be applied to shipping or tax, so it’s most likely charging you for one or both of those.
Question: I’ve referred friends to become members in years past. Do I get any coupons for those referrals?
Answer: No, our referral program is only valid for new Club sign-ups since July 2019.
Question: My mom just registered for the Club but deferred her first shipment for a month because she’s travelling and won’t be home to sign for a package. Can I just get my $20 coupon now?
Answer: Yes, as soon as we bill your mom for her first shipment, we will send you your $20 coupon.
