Black Friday, Cyber Monday & Beyond

With so many sales going on this holiday season, it's hard to keep up. We thought we'd provide a quick recap:



BLACK FRIDAY - Sale ends 12/13/10
In our 3rd annual Black Friday sale, we have a combination of freebies, holiday packages and massive savings on everything from lights to wavemakers. I'm considering pulling the trigger on a reverse osmosis unit so I can finally start mixing my own saltwater at home. If you're not mixing your own saltwater yet, watch this video to see how easy it is. Speaking of salt...


LOWER PRICES ON ALL SALT MIXES - No expiration date
This was just announced internally last week, so we haven't officially started promoting it yet. Although now, I suppose, it's official (you're welcome, boss!). So what's the deal? Well, we used to charge an extra fee for shipping salt bags & buckets because they're so heavy. Obviously that is a big deterrent to you, our customer, from buying your salt mix online. So here's how it works now: no more shipping surcharges, salt mixes now qualify for free shipping if you spend over $175 AND if you find a lower price elsewhere online, we'll match it!


CYBER MONDAY - Sale ends 12/13/10
Our second annual Cyber Monday promotion features a little something for everyone. Current USA T5 HO SlimPaq bulbs, rated 4 out of 5 stars by users, are available for a full 50% off. Fresh and saltwater aquarists can take advantage of this sweet deal from Boyd: buy a jug of Chemi-Pure and get a free bottle of Via-Chem. If you have an aquarium between 100-225 gallons and are in the market for a new protein skimmer, use coupon code 20ONRED to save 20% off the Precision Marine Redline series.


REEFKEEPER LITE HOLIDAY PACKAGE - While Supplies Last
We are pleased to announce this kick wrasse controller pack you'll find only at MarineDepot.com. For $169.99, you'll get 1 x ReefKeeper Lite head unit, 1 x PC4 (four outlet power strip), 1 x SL1 (pH, ORP, temp, and 2 x switch inputs), 1 x iTemp temperature probe, 1 x (FREE) DA pH probe, 1 x SID (USB system interface device) and 6 x Mounting screws. If you were to purchase these items separately, you'd end up paying an additional $40. Make 2011 the year you finally automate your aquarium system.


$10 OFF A $50 ORDER
- Offer Ends 12/15/10
Place an order for $50 or more on our website between now and December 15, 2010 and choose Bill Me Later as your payment method to save $10. It's that easy! Best of all, if you've been putting off a larger purchase ($300+), Bill Me Later offers no payments + no interest if you pay in full within 6 months. Both special offers ($10 off $50 + no payments for 6 months) can be combined if you buy before December 15 (on approved credit). Don't forget we ship most orders over $175 for free, so we're talking some serious savings here. There’s no separate sign up process for Bill Me Later – just select it as your payment method, answer a few questions and accept the terms. Bill Me Later is accepted at hundreds of popular online retail sites so you can use it elsewhere, too!
