They are labeled on the shelves with a yellow tag that says, "Key Special" with the amount of discount shown (these can be previewed on our website). We also receive several highly sought-after wines each year in very limited quantities. When one comes in, we run a report based on Key points earned when you use your Key Card, the customers with the highest points are called first. Your points also get you discounts for tastings, dinners, and on wine classes.

KeyRingThing Helps Keep You Healthy

We hope you are keeping that resolution to get fit and hitting the gym (with your club membership bar code handily on your KeyRingThing). Keep up the good work!

But KeyRingThing can also help you keep that second half of the resolution--the part about getting healthy. Though we are getting better about watching what we eat, we Americans still often don't get enough vitamins or minerals (men need calcium to prevent osteoporosis, too and new AMA recommendations say we all should be taking extra Vitamin D as we don't get enough sunshine.) We also could stand more protein in our diets and the jury is still out (but not by those who take then and swear by the results) on supplements like Fish Oil and Co Q-10.

Whatever you (and your medical provider) decide KeyRingThing can help. Join the discount/rewards programs of some of the nation's best known health retailers and keep your memberships all on one handy wallet size card--the KeyRingThing--and never miss a sale again.
