Thanksgiving is just a day away and this means some of our favorite retailers will be starting their Black Friday specials. We have a love-hate relationship with Black Friday. On one hand we hate the shopping madness and insanity, but on the other hand we LOVE deals. Plus, itsn’t it only fair that protein skimmers, LED lights, sumps, frags and other great things are available for a discount just like toasters and TVs? For our eighth year, we’re cataloging some of the Black Friday deals we’ve seen so far. We’ll try to keep updating this list as we uncover more deals, but please feel free to share any and all deals in the comment section below.
LED Group Buy has become the premier source for LED supplies. They are offering 12% off your order with code blackfriday2016 expires Dec 1.
