Found a "Rum of the Month Club" on the interweb today.

Here's a game for you - they promise to ship the following bottles to you (one per month, all 750 ml) for one club price - guess the price of membership...

I included a link at the bottom for you to check your answer (make sure you are sitting down)

"The cost of this outstanding package is $52.00 per month, plus shipping (add sales tax if you live in New Jersey). Shipping for the whole duration will be charged at checkout."

I wonder if they charge the shipping and tax up front as well?

I've been approached by a number of stores to give them a list of rums for a rum of the month but I didn't remember the price coming to $52 a month, plus shipping.

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.

The list itself turned me off. I didn't even get to the price.

Holy cats! I am a total newb in these parts (and many others! LOL), but even I wouldn't consider jumping on that. I'll bet there membership list is rather...exclusive.
