Black Friday Sales

November 28, 2014 - Daniel Westfall

Black Friday is here. For those not familiar with the concept, it's the day after Thanksgiving in the USA when retailers cut prices and give you great discounts to help you save some money on Christmas gifts and to help them get rid of inventory and balance their books at the end of the year. This year COASTER-net will be giving FREE SHIPPING to all orders being shipped by Standard Shipping to locations in the USA. International orders will see a reduced Shipping charge as part of this special sale. This will leave our calendars at about the same price, but will save you money if you are ordering multiple calendars.
