MoreBeer’s Black Friday Sale is typically one of the best spots for deals. Over the years, they have done several things ranging from Daily-Deal-o-ramas (limited time and quantity rotating deals) to day long discounts on select items.
For the past few years, they have gone with a day long sale on select items, which I actually prefer to the daily deal style rotating deals. I have no idea what they’ll do this year, but if I had to guess, I would guess they will do this again this year.
- Shipping for most items will be free, with a $59 order to addresses in the contiguous US and their Free Shipping Program.
- Have a list of filler items ready. Whatever style of sale they do, there may be availability issues on the best offerings. Have a list of things ready to use for filler items so you can place a quick order to ensure you get what you want. This search, is a great place to start. It shows sale items sorted from lowest price to highest price.
- For all grain brewers, this is a great filler item – the 10 lb option qualifies for free shipping
- Research Brewing Systems. Sometimes, MoreBeer will discount a brewing system for Black Friday. That’s a big purchase to make quickly. Take a look at what they carry, so you’re informed and can act quickly.
- Take a look at sale items. MoreBeer has had a large selection of clearance items on sale. This will give you an idea of what kinds of things they are putting on sale and help to round out your fillers list.
- If you see a deal you like, before Black Friday… take it. Deal of the Day, Hop Market and Kit of the Week. My guess is that it’s unlikely that we’ll see a deal on item A a few days before Black Friday and see it again on Black Friday. If it’s a good deal and you want it… get it.
A great filler item for all grain brewers… malt
As of this posting, the 10 lb unmilled offering of this malt is selling for just $7.99. That’s 80 cents per lb. It does qualify for free shipping. If you’re an all grain brewer, this is a great thing to bookmark for a filler item. Add whatever amount you need to get to $59 to qualify for free shipping and, it’s base malt that you can easily use at a great price.
