Black Friday 2015

It’s no secret nowadays. It seems that everyone is geared up for the Black Friday madness that has blossomed into the biggest retailer day of the year. If you’re in Canada and wanting to take advantage of some of the deep discounts in the U.S. there are some retailers that have already started the price cuts.

Amazon.com – Amazon is well known for their Black Friday Deals Week. They have taken advantage of their wide selection and spread Black Friday over an entire week instead of just 1 day. There are limited amounts for each item so make sure you keep checking back for something that may fit on your Holiday list!

Walmart.com – WalMart has taken notice that Amazon’s black friday week has been a great success, so it now has it’s own pre-Black Friday savings event online. They guarantee that you won’t beat their rock bottom prices.

Sierra Trading Post – If you haven’t shopped at Sierra Trading Post before, you need to check it out. They have quality products that are meant to last. You will be pleasantly surprised how steep their discounts are for their Pre-Black Friday savings.

iboats.com – How to ship boat parts to Canada

iboats

http://www.iboats.com/ – How to ship boat parts to Canada

Boating can get expensive, really fast.  This is especially true in Canada, where parts and accessories for your boat can be hard to find, and when they are found the costs are through the roof.  The opposite is true in the United States, where there are plenty of places to get whatever you need for your boat at low affordable places.  However, a leader in this category is definitely iboats.com.

iboats.com can cover all your boating needs.  Their site is organized in such a way you find exactly what you are looking for quickly and you know that you are getting the right part.  For example, one great feature of their site is when ordering a part like a propeller, they have a very comprehensive “PropFinder” that is an excellent example of how their site is tailored to help you find exactly what you are looking for.  You just tell them your engine model, make, and year and they compile a complete list of props that will fit both your motor and your price range.  iboats.com has everything from boat covers, electrical systems, steering, and about everything else boat related, so they are your one stop shop for all things nautical and aquatic.

The only problem is, shipping boat parts to Canada from the US can destroy any potential savings with the huge costs of actually getting it over the border.  For example, if I wanted to order a prop to Canada, it costs $60 to get it delivered here, whereas in the states the shipping is $6.  That is a markup of 900%!  Luckily with Kinek you can ship your iboats.com order to the border and have huge savings on shipping.  All you need to do is head over to www.kinek.com and sign up.  After you have chosen your border location you are ready to start ordering your next big boat upgrade!

So what are you waiting for? Start shipping all your boat parts to the border and save big. Tell your friends and you can all enjoy the savings!
