Why isn’t my online promo code working?

Here are a few things to check if your promo code isn’t working:

  • Check the subtotal of your cart to verify the amount meets the minimum spend required to redeem the coupon.

  • Some offers have exclusions or are valid on specific items or product categories, so check the items in your cart to ensure they qualify for the offer.

  • Items with prices ending in 8, 3L, box and mini sizes are typically excluded from promotional offers.

  • Check the expiration date on the promo code to ensure it is still valid.

If you’re still having issues, please contact our Guest Services team at GuestServices@abcfws.com or 866-450-6622.

ABC Access Rewards Program

What is ABC’s loyalty program?

ABC Access Rewards is our free rewards and benefits program that quickly gets members access to our best offers, everyday discounts, free bottles of wine and spirits throughout the year, $5 off $35 purchase coupons for every 1500 points earned, plus an invitation to the Vault when you reach Gold status.

How do I join ABC Access Rewards?

You can sign up online and create a profile by visiting abcfws.com/register. You can also sign up at checkout while visiting any ABC store. Please note, if you signed up in-store, you will still need to set up an online profile at abcfws.com/register. When creating an online account, be sure to use the same exact first and last name, phone number and address used when creating your account in the store or it will result in a second account.

Why is an email address required to join ABC Access Rewards?

All the rewards and benefits announcements from ABC Access Rewards are sent via email. Members who decide not to provide an email address will still enjoy $10 off $100 wine purchases (offer excludes items with prices ending in 8, 3L and box wines,) 10% off 6+ single cigar sticks and buy one, get one 10% off singles, 4pk and 6pk beer, seltzer, cider, flavored malt beverages, canned wines & cocktails on their in-store purchases.

Do I get points for each purchase?

With the exception of wine storage vaults (where available) and Gift Cards, yes. ABC Access members earn 5 points for every $1 spent on regular items and 10 points for every $1 spent on ABC’s Sourced & Certified Collection.

For points to be added to your account, please provide your phone number when you check out at a store or sign into your account when you’re shopping online. Points are visible in your online account within 24 hours of purchase. Points are used to determine your Access level of Bronze, Silver or Gold. Points are not redeemable. For more information about points, click here. All points reset to zero at the end of each calendar year.

Why do I need an online account if I signed up in the store?

Creating an online account is how you earn points for your online purchases. Also, once Gold Key Level is reached, having an online account is required to receive an invitation to the Vault.

Why have I never received a Vault invitation?

Here are a few things to check:

  • Have you earned 5,000+ points and are Gold Key Level?

  • Have you unsubscribed from receiving ABC emails? You can resubscribe by signing into your online account and clicking “subscribe” in your account profile.

  • Check your SPAM folder or any email rules you may have put into place that would prevent you from receiving our email.

  • Do you have an online account? Even if you signed up in the store and provided your email address, you must still go online and create an online account, as it is required to receive Vault invitations.

  • Are you a Gold Key Level member in good standing? A member in good standing means if you are caught or suspected of illegally (yes, it’s illegal to sell alcohol without a proper license) selling items purchased from the Vault, you will no longer receive invitations. We reserve the right to send invitations to our guests who enjoy, not illegally sell, items they purchase from us.

  • Have you accessed the Vault without receiving an invitation? Doing so will prevent you from receiving future Vault invitations.

Earning Points

How do I earn points?

As a member of ABC Access Rewards, you will earn points on in-store* purchases when you provide your phone number at checkout. You may also earn points on online* purchases if you signed into your account at the time of purchase. (*Points may not be earned for wine storage and Gift Card purchases.)

Where can I see my points?

Sign into your online account, hover over your name and select “Rewards” from the drop down menu.

How long do I maintain my key level?

For example, if a member earned Gold Key status in September, the Gold Key status would be valid from September to December of the current year and then for the next full calendar year from Jan. 1 through Dec. 31. Using the same example, the member would have until Dec. 31 to earn enough points to reach Gold Key status.

Points are also used to achieve tier status and at each tier you’ll receive additional benefits. Learn more about the benefits available to you. Points are not redeemable. All points reset to zero at the end of each calendar year.

Do my points ever expire?

ABC Access points earned to establish Key Level status and earn coupons are reset to zero at the end of each calendar year.

Visit abcfws.com and sign into your account. Hover over your name, select “Rewards.” Once on the “Rewards” page, click “Add them here” in the box labeled “How to Earn Points.” When the popup box appears, enter the required information and your points should appear in your account within 48 hours.

If you still have trouble, please visit abcfws.com/contact-us and complete the form.

Ship to Home Services

Can you ship to my state or country?

We currently ship select wine and spirits to businesses and residences in Florida only. Most ship-to-home orders ship out within 24 hours, Monday-Friday, however, some items are not available for same or next-day shipping.

What shipping options are available?

Ground delivery service is available via a common carrier by selecting Ship to Home at checkout.

What are my shipping costs?

The shipping charge is dependent on the order weight and the zip code to which it is being delivered. Shipping charges also contain an adult signature requirement for each package shipped and handling fees. During the checkout process, select your shipping preference and input your zip code of your destination address to calculate the estimate shipping costs.

Can I waive the required adult signature on my package?

No, ABC and the shipping carrier are under strict state laws & regulations that require an adult signature at the time of delivery from an adult age 21+ with a physical valid, government issued photo ID at the actual shipping address. It is against our policy for a neighbor to sign for your delivery and we make no exceptions. ABC takes great measures to ensure no minor is exposed to the alcoholic contents of the package. If an adult with a physical valid, government issued photo ID is not available to sign for the package at the shipping address, the shipping carrier will make three attempts to deliver. After the third attempt, the package will be returned to our warehouse.

Does ABC ship to a business or a P.O. Box?

No, due to an adult 21+ with a valid, government issued photo ID signature being required at the time of delivery, our shipping carrier will deliver to physical businesses and residential addresses only. The shipping carrier will not deliver to any PO/APO/FPO boxes.

How long will it take to get my Ship-to-Home order?

In most cases, an order gets processed within 1-2 business days. However, it can take 3-5 business days in some cases.

My order arrived from the shipping carrier damaged, what do I do?

Immediately contact us by completing the form found on abcfws.com/contact-us or phone 866-450-6622 and we will ship out another package to you right away. If the same product is not available, we will either offer you an alternative or issue a refund, including shipping charges.
