Is it legal to buy alcohol online?

Yes — except in Alabama, Oklahoma and Utah. It’s not legal to ship alcohol directly to consumers in those three states. In most other states, the same regulations and restrictions apply to online alcohol sales as in retail establishments — so you’ll still have to be 21 to place an online order.

However, regulations on online alcohol sales vary state by state. Arizona, Florida, Hawaii, Nebraska, New Hampshire and Washington D.C. allow spirits to be sold online. Most other states permit the sale of beer and wine online, while a few only allow wine to be sold in this way. Check with the laws and regulations in your state for more information.

If you’re a wine lover and frequently order online, you could benefit from signing up for a rewards card that caters to your tastes.
