G'day all, is it just me or is the BWS 10% off not working for 6+ bottles?

Placed an order this morning which included the discount. I am looking at some other wines and now it is not appearing on my account or my wife's account. Tried a variety of wines, and no dice.
It worked for me this morning, found 5 bottles of Teusner Joshua GSM at half price then added the cheapest bottle of swill available to bring it down a few extra dollars

BWS 10% off does vary store to store, just ring them and they should refund you the 10%>

It actually happened to me today too, as I bought Ata Rangi Pinot for $43 a bottle.

I have noticed this happening online at certain stores. Most stores do work, but newer stores seem to have issues. The 10% off always works in store, but not online which isn’t great for Cashback deals. Haven’t tried asking them to refund the difference, which is a good idea, but may void cashback?

The Ata Rangi is $48 at the Glen Huntly store in Melbs. 5 on the shelf at 6pm tonight.

Also Moss Wood $80 at Mentone.

Laithwaites have finally admitted to selling stock they didn't have (i.e. drop shipping). Look for an email early morning 17th, it was in my spam folder.

To my surprise my local .Dan Murphy's was clearing out wine (mostly aged vintages) at half decent prices. Picked up:

B Minor Victoria Shiraz 2017 $5.25
B Minor Grampians Shiraz 2018 $10.50
Schild Estate Barossa Shiraz 2019 $8.50
St Hallett Blockhead Shiraz Grenache 2018 $8.80

Hit & miss on selection, mostly miss. Lots of organic options. ;) Not sure when they put them out but people were loading up so I assume I got lucky on timing. Pretty sure it was local store only but you never know your luck.

Couldn't figure this out, but planted in 1891 shouldn't be that many around?
Tanunda?
I spent a fair amount of time trying to work it out, including looking at past 98pt scores on Wine Companion. Couldn't find a definitive match, but have 3 on the way, maybe Monday delivery. Closest I could see was Woods Crampton Michael John from 1894 vines and 98 pts for a prior vintage, but I can find no evidence they made it for 2107.
No Tanunda or Yaldara Shiraz have scored 98pts as far as I can tell.
But "likes of Halliday an company, including 98pts just a few years back" may not actually be Wine Companion.

Tried to look at vineyards with Century or Ancestor vines possibly these two?

Chateau Tanunda - 100 year old vine Shiraz
Langmeil Pure Eden Shiraz

There is the Elderton Command Shiraz but it doesn't hit the RRP.

Ch Tanunda not single vineyard, TWC listing indicates cork and Barossa, not Eden Valley, so not Langmeil.

They've had a fair bit of Hewitson, but Monopole Mother Vine vineyard is 1853.
Fair enough on the Tanunda.

Could be Langmeil. Region is listed as Barossa which includes Barossa Valley & Eden Valley? The closure isn't explicitly called out as cork - more so done in a string of bottle, label, etc.

Anything is possible, but TWC usually indicate Eden explicitly on mystery wines and Langmeil is very unlikely as they "never" do this sort of discounting.
