    Beware, they are miles behind on orders, Expect a week or 2 wait.

      Not in my experience, ordered on Friday, got shipping confirmation Monday…

        Even Boozebud are warning of delays this week (when you order) due to all their sales.

        Shipping confirmation is meaningless!

        Received days ago from Boozebud…
        your order has been picked up by our couriers and is on it's way
        You can track your delivery and view an ETA at the Australia Post website.

        But clicking tracking shows still only the order information received in days by Australia Post.

          Same, but that's because Aus Post is backlogged due to weather incidents in NSW & Qld (their logistics company appears to be in NSW). You see a popup about it when go to AusPost tracking.

            @Gav: That's an additional delay, on top of their delays.

            Order on new account using Groupon Code is only at "Accepted" stage - same as it was on Monday.

            Too many good offers & discount codes in last week, their stock & shipping system can't cope.

        "Not in my experience, ordered on Friday, got shipping confirmation Monday…"
        Umm, in your experience that IS a week wait so far (as warned) & not recived.
        Tell us when you receive it!

        •  

          Surely you don't expect anything to be shipped out over the weekend? I'm just saying consignment was prompt, the rest is in au post's hands. For the record I'm in WA so a week for regular post is normal but we'll see if it actually arrives by Wednesday, as estimated.

            @evocable: Posted email from Boozebud explaining extraordinary delays.

            As I pointed out above - shipping confirmation from Boozebud is meaningless.

            In a week my order hasn't gone anywhere, despite Boozebud saying "your order has been picked up by our couriers and is on it's way"

            It's what the actual courier says is happening with the order that matters - and Australia Post site says it has only received my shipment info.

            What does AP say about where your order is?

            Noticed Perth as your location so was aware of extra delivery delays for you. Hopefully a speedy delivery🍹
            (Delivery at normal times have been fast for me.)

                I ordered Thurs over a week ago & order has been packed but that's all. But Boozebud said it is on its way😠

                The lengthy email apologising for the delays means there are many upset or affected.

                Lucky I'm not in a hurry.

      I ordered 2 days ago, and got a confirmation it's been picked up by the couriers. Looks like I might be lucky!

      • +1 vote

        Shipping confirmation from Boozebud is meaningless. Check the courier site. My orders received that email but have gone nowhere.

        •  

          Aus Post estimated delivery for me is tomorrow. That's less than 7 days from ordering.

          I was prepared for a much longer wait. I guess it's a bit of a crap shoot depending on where you live etc.

          •  

            @Poimandres: Think a few orders are being delivered in Brissie tomorrow. Enjoy🍺

            2 orders from 11 days ago (been waiting for many days doing nothing after confirmation email) are due then.

            Family order still waiting (only at first stage of "Accepted" for 7 days). Seems delay to process Groupon Voucher by Boozebud meant whiskey went out of stock & hasn't been restocked. No reply from BB about order.

          •  

            @Poimandres: Hope you got your delivery.

            Delays again. No update on my order that was due today according to Australia Post. It never turned up in Brisbane.

            After many emails, replies about a wrong order, BB finally say an order placed a week ago will be processed soon… It's never got past "Accepted".

              @Infidel: That's brutal. I hope they at least throw some discounts at you like some people have received.

              My delivery at Alderley arrived without incident. I feel like I really dodged a bullet on this one.

              •  

                @Poimandres: Order from 12 days back still hasn't left Sydney.

                Other order still to be processed… They've thrown in a free cap as a separate order so far but that hasn't been processed either.

                Will complain after orders sent, in case they cancel. Don't want to miss out on the great price.

      I ordered on Sunday and it shipped Wednesday. I’d messaged them Tuesday to ask why it hadn’t shipped yet (as I’m moving and needed to receive the booze by today) and they gave me $25 credit for the “inconvenience”. Loving these guys atm lol.

        Ordered 3 boxes last Friday, 3 more boxes Saturday, all arrived this Friday (today).
        7 days, no biggie when you get 6 boxes for ~$165.

        •  

          It's best to know of delays before ordering.

          I'm not in a hurry. But family member's order is still at "Accepted" since Monday using this Groupon Voucher on new account.

          Some have been waiting for over 2 weeks. See below

        •  

          Same here, ordered 3 boxes last Friday - delivered today

          •  

            @Maxdax: Correction to above, my (2nd) order was placed Monday and arrived friday, but it was for just one beer brand. Previous Friday's order of 3 different brands has not yet arrived.

            •  

              @battler: Yes - make sense - ordered 3 slabs of lashes - ordered Friday, delivered next week Friday. So a week is pretty good imho. I just ordered some Balter - yesterday so we will see but the savings are so good I don’t mind.

    •  

      Still waiting for my order I purchased from 22nd. Contacted them and they gave me $15 credit. I’m not gonna buy anymore until I receive my 1st order.

    •  

      Best to be aware of delays of Boozebud orders.

      This lengthy email apologising for the delays means there are many upset or affected.

      (Order on family member's new account using Groupon Voucher - still at "Accepted" since ordered on Monday. Same order through existing account has been processed but not sent yet. So orders may be slower using Groupon Voucher.)

      Received from Boozebud yesterday…
      we're sorry your order will probably be delayed.
      We're experiencing delays delivering orders. We’re so sorry if it does take longer for your order to arrive. We’re doing everything we can to sort this out for you as fast as we can.

      The real time status of your order can be seen online in Your Orders section. When your order leaves our warehouse you’ll receive an alert via email. The track link in this email or online in Your Orders links to Australia Post’s tracking information and displays an up to date ETA for your delivery.

      Unfortunately our warehouse and Australia Post are struggling to keep up with our order volumes which have increased by 8x in the past week. Our warehouse is working through the night to catch up. Australia Post is also experiencing delays and longer delivery times given the severe weather events in NSW and we’re working closely with them every day to do our best to reduce any delay.

      This is not the service we pride ourselves on that delivers 99.5% of the time and we’re doing everything we can to catch up and avoid it in the future.

      We hope you still enjoy your booze when it arrives and that you’ll give us another chance to show you how our delivery normally operates like clockwork.

      Our apologies for any delay once again. We appreciate your patience!
      The entire BoozeBud team

        No issues with my order, they sent an email saying it may take a bit longer but wasn't a big deal maybe a day or two extra in the end

    Well I'm in idiot. I went to the old deal without reading this properly and bought it for 10 bucks instead of 5.

    In the main post it says "New Groupon Customers Only" but isn't it "New boozebud customers only"?

    •  

      I took it as "new boozebud customers only". Just purchased one for $5.00 and have already saved the voucher. I am not a new Groupon customer and I ordered one last deal. Plan to give this one to my Dad for Christmas, he will be a new Boozebud customer.

      •  

        It is. But, this Deal Description is incorrectly worded as pointed out by videoman.

        Tried adding Groupon code to existing account (that has been used) - not accepted. My non-drinker Father is also a lucky recipient of code from last order. I'll drink to him at Christmas🎄

        The budgie wants a drink now, so another Groupon order & new Boozebud account😉

  •  

    Can anyone advise where the coupon code goes? I've tried a few times and can't find it.

    •  

      When you go to pay in Groupon - click on "Promo or Gift Code".

    •  

      Sign in, then click on your name top right hand side. Then click on "My Groupons". Mine was there minutes after I ordered.
      Edit: Oh, sorry, thought you meant the voucher you purchased.

    •  

      Sorry for any misunderstanding, I meant where to put the voucher on the Boozebud site.

    For all the alcoholics out there, you can get 3 bottles of Eristoff Premium Vodka, normally $35 each, for a total of $60 after vouchers are applied. With an $8 delivery charge (metro vic), that works out to $22.60 per bottle delivered

  •  

    Boozebud offers $25 off and free shipping "25BUD" to new customers spending over $100.
    Boozebud spend $100 - deal $25 = $75 (Cashback nil)
    Groupon $5 + spend $100 + shipping $10 = $115 - deal $50 = $65 (Cashback Groupon 60c)
    I did it anyway. And I bought 2 x Advent calenders. It's Christmas!

    Nearly worth creating a third Boozebud account for this! I'm in WA and it's been taking about a week to get the order, not overly bad as I'm not impatiently waiting for it or anything. Bigger issue is their stock levels, they never have a huge range in stock and it's even worse with all the sales they've been having lately.

  •  

    Don't even know when my 1st order will come so not putting any more money in until I've received that one…

    Order page states:
    Delivery: Tue 27 Nov - Wed 28 Nov by AusPost

    Nothing received to date

    Beware buying from them, I purchased 2 vodka from the last deal, they only shipped 1 and did not respond to my emails when I tried to contact them.

      Valid neg, but on the whole, Boozebud have been fantastic. Probably struggling to get through all the emails for late delivery because of how overwhelmed/understaffed they have been with all the ridiculously cheap deals they have had lately.

      Bear with them mate, pretty sure they'll sort your issue out for you.

      My order got delivered today with 1 missing item, hopefully a mistake.

    Expect delays, but they will follow through with the order.

        Pretty common amongst online liquor retailers. The profit's in the end game.

    Also ordered on Monday this week - as long as it arrives by the Friday before Christmas, I'll be happy.

    Agree - too many good deals lately and they obviously underestimated demand and now that's been compounded by the weather backlog.

    My order with Boozebud placed 13 November only arrived today (Melbourne metro). I wouldn’t hold hope for new orders to be received by Xmas considering their massive backlog…

    Mine arrived today but one of the packages was broken during transit and was not delivered. Not sure what the outcome will be.

      chase them up they were slow when it happened to us we ended up sorting it out before they actually got around to dealing with it

  •  

    No 10% off spirits anymore?
    That was good cos it didnt require a code so it actually stacked with the groupon deal.

    Don't use these guys. I ordered in the 15th, nothing except an email saying one of the 3 cases is damaged in transit.

    I want to post my good experience with this deal. I’ve ordered from them three times now. First arrived in 4 days, second in 8, just ordered the third tonight. They sent an email for the second saying there would be delays. All up I’ve order 8 cases of beer, a mix of pure blondes, coronas, Budweiser and coopers for $250. Averaging around $31-$32 a case delivered, which is still cheaper than dr dans on a good day. It sucks that some people have had bad experiences but as with any good deal, the thrill of the bargain is too good to pass up

    I checked my order from previous deal, it says delivered on the 26th on Auspost website. Says left at a safe place but I haven't received it. I have emailed boozebud, haven't heard back yet. What would be my options in this case? I never asked Auspost to leave at a safe place.
