Re: Best deal/coupon for on-line wine shopping.

Hot50 works for 50 off 150. Just grabbed some Bowmore 18 for $103 after this and the $30 Amex Ex. yeah. cant believe I got 2 days in a row with $50 off of $150. first with vd50 then with hot50. Don't forget GIRLS50, also $50 off $150. Hot50 + Girls50 = vd50? Maybe Valtex50 is the next code?

Kenny,

You are my pizza guardian angel! 80% AP, 10% WW & 10% Spelt. 63% hydration. About 2 minutes each cooking time.
