Christmas shopping is always stressful no matter how early you do it. It's therefore best to make sure that you don’t get caught out this festive season by forgetting to buy alcohol in time for all your celebrations and guests.
So if alcohol is still on the shopping list and you are looking for some good value options for wine and spirits, it’s worth checking out Dan Murphy’s current list of available offers. They have some very competitive prices plus some free bottles of wine that you can take advantage of if your order is over a certain amount.
To get the season started, Dan Murphy’s have a double black offer on at the moment, which includes one bottle of Double Black Johnnie Walker and Double Black Smirnoff Vodka. Both bottles are 700ml and together they cost $85. Shipping would normally be $7, but with this voucher code you will receive free shipping to a metro area.
If you were to look anywhere else, you would find prices to be as follow:
- 1stchoice.com.au – JWDB: $48.90 & SDB: $45 = $93.80 + $6.95 shipping
- Liquorland.com.au – JWDB: $68 & SDB: $40 = $108 + $8.95 shipping
- Vintagecellars.com.au – JWDB: $49.99 & SDB: $40 = $89.99 + $6.95 shipping
If spirits are a bit too heavy and you prefer to drink wine, then you will be happy to hear that Dan Murphy’s have an exceptional offer on ‘Penfolds 389 Cabernet Shiraz.’ This 750 ml bottle has been priced at $49.90 in any combination of six (so $299.40 for six) or $52 for an individual bottle. This wine received a 97-point Halliday rating so you can be sure it’s excellent quality. Plus, if you use the free metro delivery voucher, you will have nothing more to pay. When I compared this with other retailers I found that they had the same bottle selling for:
- Mycellars.com.au – $69.95 or for six: $419.70 + $10 shipping
- Crackawines.com.au - $74.99 or for six: $449.94 + $6.95 shipping
- Liquorland.com.au - $80.00 or for six: $480 + $8.95 shipping
Of course, Christmas wouldn’t be the same without a Brut. So it’s worth checking out Dan Murphy's Chandon Brut 750ml. This particular Chardonnay Pinot Noir scored 94 points from James Halliday, so again, a top quality sparkling wine to be drinking around Christmas. Dan Murphy’s are currently selling this bottle for $19 in any six ($114 for a half dozen) or $20 individually. Remember, shipping wont cost anything with their voucher, so why not put that little extra saving into another bottle. Anyway, this offer stacks up against other retailers prices as follows:
- Liquorland.com.au - $22 or for six: $132 + $8.95 shipping
- 1stchoice.com.au - $24.70 or for six: $148.20 + $6.95 shipping
- Wineboxwarehouse.com.au - $23.99 or for six: $143.94 + $8 shipping
Something else to be aware of is that if you end up purchasing for $150 or more at Dan Murphy’s, then you will qualify for one free 750ml bottle of Taylors Reserve Parcel Shiraz or Yarra Burn vintage sparkling wine. However, spend more than $200 and you will be able to redeem two bottles of either option mentioned above. To redeem these bottles you must pay for your items via PayPal. This offer ends at midnight on 28th November 2014.
The promo codes are:
- Taylors Reserve Parcel Shiraz: PBBWINE
- Yarra Burn Vintage Sparkling Wine: PBBSPARK
But if you do end up shopping elsewhere for your alcohol, then here are a couple of vouchers that may help you at other retailers online. Winegrowers currently have a $25 off voucher when you spend more than $99. Whilst Living Social have a promo code available giving you 20% off everything when you use this voucher (with some decent wine deals going on their site).
