thanks. I grabbed this. I'm still undecided, but I can always return it at the store and since I paid $0 for shipping, I'm good. I only need cooling for a couple months in the summer. I have 35 pieces of cedar, so if I can make my own drawers, it could fly. I jsut can't see spending a lot on drawers, since this isn't a "big" hobby for me.

I have about 3 boxes, then maybe another 50 or so. Although there are a few others I'm after, I'm not sure I'll ever get past 5 boxes. DOes it make sense to keep this wine cooler?

I think that you'll be hard pressed to find inmates that will not encourage you in your slipperly slope slide.

I don't believe that this model is thermoelectric, but seems to be a great deal.

BTW, I am not trying to push the Vino -- just what looks to be another good deal.

I think the Vino would work for someone who doesn't need the cooling. Which begs the question, why are they buying a vino? Maybe they just the like concept and tight seal. If this Vino has compressor cooling, I'd stay away, becuase of the condensation issues. Plus, if you read reviews of wine coolers, they have a life expectancy of 2 years or less. My guess, and it's only a guess, is that most wine coolers are compressor units. Hopefully, the new thermo-electrics, like the Avanti above, will last longer.

Yeah, mine should be here on Friday. I had trouble logging in to Target.com on the 21st. Their password renewal wasn't working correctly. I completed the sale on the 22nd and they credited me $15 toward the $38.88. A few minutes after I completed the sale, a cucstomer survey came to me and I politely explained that I was still out almost $24 in shipping, since their system wouldn't provide me a password. They credited to me the balance.

Thumbs up for Target!

just a heads up, the sale is still on, no free shipping, but you get an additional 10% off.

Thanks for the info Greg and Joe. I'm thinking about it but I plugged it into my cart and the final price with shipping and tax would be $200.25 for me. That's not bad but possibly more than my budget will allow. Who knows though? Maybe, just maybe...

FWIW, I'm in PA and bought this unit. It's great, but I haven't even plugged it in yet. I bought a Pompeii a week before you posted this ad and I grabbed the AVANTI, jut in case the Pompeii didn't work out.

Anyway, I'm offering it up for exactly what I paid, $169.59, but of course, you need to pick it up. I posted this in the classifieds as well. I have the box, manual, etc. If it doesn't sell by Friday, I'll just run it back to Target on Saturday for a full refund. Just thought I'd offer it up to a PA friend who might have missed the deadline.
