    I probably will order online if it comes out cheaper than the local stores near me.

    Seriously? :/ Good thing I just placed a $95 dollar order there YESTERDAY after shipping. So I could have gotten $20+ of beer for free if I waited till today? Damnnnn....

    Call and see if your orders processed or shipped. If not add more and get the free shipping.

    Thanks I just did. That would be awesome if it worked out because that's a lot of extra beer I could be getting!

    Hellz yes!! Not only do they ship free on orders over $100, but they have BCBS, Worldwide Stout and Speedway Stout. All stuff I'd been hunting online. Finding this site is gonna get expensive...

    I have a feeling we'll be flooded with BCBS with inbev in control.

    Thanks to whoever provided this info. I just made a purchase but I wanted to let everyone know that they have a 24 bottle limit so you can't buy a bunch of $2 beers.

    Yeah they limit it to a full case of 24 beers. Thats still a crap load of beers to ship for free.

    I'm guessing free is never free, the price is in the individual mark up on the bottle, no one loses money in a transaction and stays in business for long.

    Inflated for sure, but I don't think everything is unreasonable. If Black Tuesday wasn't 11 days away I would for sure be ordering a full case.

    Just put in an order, but more than 24 bottles. We'll see what happens. Hard to buy a 12pk and still hit the $100 mark. If it goes through, I'll be excited.

    That would be an interesting argument. If you intercept the purchase before I receive it how could I have possession? Unless of course the delivery man has a cop hide in the bushes and arrests me immediately after delivering illegal goods.

    You're getting into subtleties I don't know much about, but we can speculate. The law seems to require that the untaxed alcoholic beverage be in your possession in PA, so I would assume that the law enforcement folks would not intercept it and would wait until it is clearly in your possession and then bust you.

    Looks like my order from Half Time was fully shipped? That included 2 cases, plus some random bottles. If so, that would be incredible.

    I'm going to try and place an order from Halftime tomorrow, but something is confusing me. I have 27 bottles in my cart and it's telling me that's one full case. If I remove one, it says I need one more bottle to make a full case.

    I've gotten as far as I can go without actually submitting my order and the freeship code is still working, although at the bottom of the page it notes there's a 24 bottle max on it.

    Anyone know what's up with those three phantom bottles?

    So besides making a new account every time you order, how do you get the $10 deal at letspour after your first order?

    Whoever "Lueken" is, I'm pretty sure I'm contributing to sending their child to college. I buy from them a lot.

    I didnt see that as a justification as much as I read it as being a small shot taken at the trading community, i.e. his off the shelf beer not good enough to trade for their off the shelf beer.
