Quini VIP Rewards Loyalty Program


Hello, We loved having you and your guests at our past wine tastings. We are now testing a new program that pays you money to drink and review wines using Quini! Let’s see how many people would like to be part. How it works: For every new wine review that you add to Quini for wines that you buy for your household or drink in restaurants or wherever, outside of a Quini-led event, we give you two points, each worth one USD dollar. Once you reach 50 dollars, we send you a $50 dollar Amazon or Visa gift card. We will test this for three months (ends July 29, 2021) for this group of wine lovers who come in to the beta program. If you do not hit $50, that’s okay, you’ll still get a gift card for whatever dollars you earned, provided you are at $20 or higher in collected points. To join: Please add yourself to this form:

To redeem points: – Make sure that all your wine reviews being claimed have been completed in full – Check that your Quini user profile (click the head shaped avatar in the top right after you are logged in to your Quini account) is completed and up to date – Check how many wine reviews you add in the MY TASTINGS section of your Quini account, starting from the day you sign up to the program – Send an email to with the subject line $50 Mark Reached (or whatever dollar amount you would have reached in the three months) – You may redeem multiple times during the test period Looking forward to rewarding you for being an important and loyal Quini member, adding real, honest feedback to the community. Hint: Our algorithm and process can detect fake reviews. All those will be disqualified. Cheers, Roger

Roger Noujeim

CEO, Quini
