A Marine "Black Friday"

Well, Thanksgiving has not even started yet and my wife is talking about Christmas shopping on BLACK FRIDAY. Many stores are planning to open even earlier than Friday. Some are opening their doors on Thanksgiving day at 8:00 pm. You have got to be kidding! This Christmas shopping is getting out of control.

People have been camping out all week in front of Best Buy and Walmart stores to catch the early deals on Christmas gifts.  I like to save a few bucks and get a good deal, but camping out in this weather?

If your like me, you probably have been getting alot of email notices about the "BLACK FRIDAY" events. I don't know if this is just an American phenomena but I thought it would be a good idea to share the Marine boating and sailing deals I have been hearing about.

We can all use a good deal on boat stuff.  It appears to me that if the word Marine is on the box it costs twice as much. Not to worry my boating friends, here are some holiday deals that will save you some serious cash!
West Marine is currently having a Holiday sale with some gift items 30% off from November 13-26th.  Check their site again on Friday for more great online deals.

On Thanksgiving Day they are having a 15% off sale on their entire site. Just use the code BIG15 at checkout.

Get your captain an eGift Card from West Marine, that will be sure to put a smile on his face!

Marine Depot is having a Black Friday event with saving of 10-50% on some items. Their sale runs through December 4th.

Mauri Pro Sailing is another great boating gear and prices. They are having a 30% off sale on their closeout items. You can get free shipping for orders over $75 in the US. Redeem the coupon SHUS.

  1. As the Black Friday 2013 is coming very soon, Amazon has dropped down the prices of many products by offering some Black Friday. and I hope this year Amazon will offer some Black Friday Canon 700D/T5i deals to help me reduce the price.

  2. As the Black Friday is coming very soon I believe there are plenty of people are excited to waiting that day. In this year I hope I can get a Black Friday Kindle Fire HDX Deals from Amazon. But if I can't get this one I will still buy this tablet since It is very cheap.
