Black Friday Survival Tips - UPDATED 10/24/2018
- Keep watching for updates on this page.
- The sale for Black Friday starts Friday, November 23rd, 2018 at 7:00 AM PST. The sale will have great prices on limited quantities of stock. When the item is out of stock, the sale is over for that item. Some items will have a bunch and some will have a few. So if you see something you want, don't wait too long because it might be gone soon.
- The price shown before the sale will be the normal retail price - sorry no peeking at the super Black Friday prices until the sale starts. We will put the sale prices up as soon as the sale starts. Do not order before the price shows - sorry we cannot honor the sale price if you buy before the sale starts.
- Keep watching the site in case there are any changes or surprises coming up - we always put a banner on the first page to tell you what sale is happening.
- We plan to have all kinds of things on sale so there should be something for everyone.
- THIS IS IMPORTANT: The shopping cart will allow you to add items to your cart if we still have at least one in stock, but the item is not yours until you check out and pay for the item. In other words, if 2 people add the last item of something to their cart, the first one to check out will get the item, the second person to check out will get an error saying there are no more items in stock. Sorry, that's the way our eCommerce system works - wish it wasn't that way, but it is.
- Everything on our website is already kitted, in stock and read to ship - Madcow never sells something we don't have in stock already. With that being said, it may take us a several weeks to get through all of the shipments for this sale, so please be patient. If this is a Christmas present, feel free to make a note of that in the comment box on your order, or email us later and we'll try and make sure it gets out earlier in the shipping process. Last year it took us almost 3 weeks to get through all the orders from Black Friday. Please be patient, we are a small shop.
- Remember some items may already be out of stock from the early deals in the countdown to Black Friday sales. Sorry, we will not have more until after the sale.
- Sorry, but we are not able to take phone orders. This sale is only for online orders.
- Sorry, we cannot accept any other deals or coupons for any Black Friday sale items during the sale (except for gift certificates, those always work).
- Sorry, we cannot hold early deals for combined shipping with orders later in the month. We will combine shipping for the same day orders if needed.
- Sorry, at these low prices we can only issue store credits for returns.
- Sometimes the system has trouble calculating shipping to your location and will come up with an error saying "Cannot ship to your location". If this occurs, you can go ahead and select "Pickup in Laguna Hills" and the system will calculate your order without shipping. If this happens, don't worry we will not make you fly out here to pick up the order, we will calculate shipping and email you with the cost to ship and you can paypal us separately. Keep in mind these orders may take a little longer to process.
- For our international customers, the system will try to calculate shipping to your area as best it can when you check out. Because of these super low prices, we cannot afford to lose money on shipping if the system miscalculates shipping to your international location. We will contact you if we need to recalculate shipping to your location. Please note, we charge actual shipping to your location and do not add any handling fees on our end. If we have to raise the shipping cost and you decide it is too much, we will cancel your order and refund your payment. Generally, the system does pretty good at estimating these costs, but sometimes shipping multiple kits to countries that require us to ship in smaller multiple boxes can increase costs.
Good luck and have fun! Don't worry if you don't get something you wanted, we'll make more, but probably not at the Black Friday Prices!
