    Binny's has a card already -- I don't buy a ton there so I don't know how useful it is for whiskey, as it sounds more focused on rewarding wine customers.

    I know that Premier in Western NY also has a card program and has for many years.

    Agreed. That's almost certainly a lie. Distributors don't care. It just sounds like somebody you shouldn't be doing business with. Bad store owner, bad.

    And it works too - for every bottle of Kessler I buy, I get a
    free 4 pack of Champale!

    (Seriously - nothing to see here in WNY. Move along everybody...)

    Sounds like sour grapes......and what the owner thinks might be a way to frighten his costumers into not flipping a bottle.

    Sort of like some jackwagon who won't sell you a steak if you're gonna feed it to your dog.
