There are plenty of life-saving apps available, from those that help assist people needing CPR to others that let you know what to do if bitten by a venomous snake.
Then there’s WTSO (WinesTilSoldOut), an app that notifies you as soon as the company’s web site is updated with a new bottle of wine that’s been deeply discounted up to 70% off retail.
That’s a lifesaver and a budget saver.
Just two days ago, there was a red blend rated 91 by Wine Advocate. It retailed for $60. The cheapest web price found was $34.74. And WTSO was selling it for $19.99.
Whether you’re using the app, or on the regular web site, you can quickly select the number of bottles you want (hint: shipping is free if you order four or more) and within seconds you can start planning when to sit by your mailbox with an empty goblet.
They also have a “Cheapskate Marathon” on January 28th where offers post every 15 minutes (or sooner depending if the items sells out) and every item will be priced from $7.99 to $18.99.
Wow. We can finally display one of those “26.2” stickers in the back window of our car.
Nobody needs to know that our marathon involves wine.
Or that 26.2 refers to number of glasses in a single sitting.
