Black Friday Guitar Deals
This year seems to be the year that Black Friday has really caught on in Australia, where it has traditionally been a US tradition, I have tried to round up as much as possible for Australian stores, but also have included some overseas deals as well. If you are looking for a gift for a guitar player for Xmas or for yourself this is a prime time to purchase it. Remember to check back on each of the retailers as they will often update their sales and release only certain items across the weekend, so you have to stay on your toes.
Reverb is offering up to 20% off certain items across the weekend, it may also be a good time to try and negotiate better prices on anything you have been keeping an eye on.
is offering 10% off many purchases over $75 with the codeword PANTONE, always a great place to find good deals on guitars and gear. They are also offering rolling all weekend deals through to Cyber Monday, so be sure to check them out if you are looking for anything in particular.
The US is where it is at for sales, and Sweetwater is the place to go – but the problem is that they won’t ship to Australia…or will they? There is definitely a way to get great deals, or non-Australian items here from the States and that is through the Australia Post affiliated ShopMate which is a mail forwarding service. Shopmate assigns you with a US address (in a warehouse somewhere) and forwards it to your Australian address when it arrives there.
Amazon is one of the places hat has consistently good Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, be sure to check them out for anything that may come up. Amazon Australia hasn’t opened yet, but you can either use their shipping service or the Shopmate service to get your item to you before Christmas.
I would also be highly recommending to check out the websites of any of your favourite boutique sellers as they may well be bringing out new products or new sales at this time of year. Are there any sales that you know of locally, or online?
