  • Allocate the possibility to purchase bottles through a computerized random draw.
  • To limit the number of bottles ordered per client.

Please note that products from this event can’t be combined with any promotional offer (rebates, Inspire points, etc.)

General terms and conditions

Price policy

The prices indicated on the SAQ.COM site are those established for consumer sales.

It is not allowed for clients who are permit holders of the Régie des alcools, des courses et des jeux for the sale of alcoholic beverages to participate in this lottery.

You must pay only for the products for which you entered the lottery, that were allocated to you by the automated lottery process and that you wish to purchase, according to the maximum quantity you indicated when you entered the draw.

The maximum quantity you can buy is the quantity you indicated when you entered the draw.

For example, if you indicated five (5) bottles for product X, and this product is allocated to you, you can purchase five (5) bottles or less of product X. Your purchase is final: if you decide to buy three (3) bottles of product X instead of five (5), it will not be possible to purchase the remaining two (2) bottles allocated to you at a later time. These two bottles will be released and will be part of the “first come, first served” sale.

Purchasing products

The lottery process on SAQ.COM intends to randomly allocate to participants the possibility to purchase products of a given event.

Once the participation period is over, the computerized lottery process will randomly allocate products to participants. You will receive an email informing you if products were allocated to you or not. You have a set delay after this email is sent to purchase products allocated to you. Your purchase if final and quantities purchased are final. Bottles not purchased will be part of the “first come, first served” sale.

Upfront payment and balance

A 40% deposit must be paid by the customer on pre-order products, both those allocated by lottery and acquired in the “first come, first served” sale. Said account must be paid in the SAQ.COM cart in order to pre-order the products.

If the value of the deposit exceeds the value of all other ordered and delivered products, the surplus will be reimbursed to the client with interest, starting on the date the deposit was paid and calculated according to the National Bank of Canada rate minus 1%.

The balance on Bordeaux Futures pre-orders is payable when the SAQ warehouse receives the products, in 2023. You will then receive an email with details.

Product delivery

Once products reach our warehouse, you will receive an email with details on how to pay your order balance, as well as information on available delivery options.

Order transfer

The products ordered by a customer may under no circumstances be transferred to another client.

Limit of responsibility and product guarantee

If, for any reason, the SAQ cannot deliver the products to the client, its sole responsibility is to credit the client or to reimburse them for the amount paid.

The SAQ guarantees these products for a period of 12 months from the date of possession by client. Upon return of a defective product, the SAQ will replace it or reimburse the full purchase price. For further information concerning the exchange and reimbursement policy, please contact the Customer Relations Centre.

Respect of participation rules

It is forbidden to create several accounts with different email addresses. The SAQ.COM accounts that don’t follow this rule will be deleted, and clients who created them won’t be able to create new accounts, preventing them from gaining access to lottery events and Bordeaux Futures.

If the SAQ determines that individuals alter or use the lottery process on SAQ.COM in a wrongful way, notably, but not exclusively by infringing on its regulations, by trying to enter the draw more often than the maximum order of times allowed, by acting in a way that hinders the normal draw process, these individuals will be disqualified.

Any person who tries to enter the draw by using robotic entry methods, automated, macro or programmed, by third parties or any other similar method will have these attempts cancelled and the account of this person will be deleted at the sole and entire discretion of the SAQ.

Confidentiality of your personal information and of your transactions.

Please read our Confidentiality policy and our Terms and conditions of online sales for any information on the matter.
