I was thinking of having it ship out after the new year, since a lot of people will be going out of town for the holidays (incl me).

If there is enough interest I will see if I can set something up.

Ho'kay so, here is the informationnnnez for the group buy.

Aiming for delivery to be on the 6th or 7th, still figuring that out, but it will be just after the New Year. If anyone has a day that doesn't work for them (like they are on vacation) please let me know so that I can find something that works for most of us.

1) if the order is above 400$, its free shipping.
2) you can make as many orders as you want between now and the delivery date that will give "free shipping" with the CODE! This will give us time to see new stock and such between now and the shipping date.
3)pickup will be @ my home. Those who participate can PM me and I will give you my address and phone number.

I will provide the code tomorrow once I get in touch with Canada corals to make sure the stuff won't ship until January.

Some additional info. We can start ordering now and they will hold the orders for us and ship in January, HOWEVER, if we order something now they CAN NOT give us the boxing day sale price on that item, even though it is shipping after boxing day. So you can either wait for the boxing day sale, or order now. Waiting for the sale risks the item going out of stock, HOWEVER you can contact Canada Corals to see if they have a lot of a particular item in stock, in which case it may be better to wait for the sale.

Please let me know if you want to start ordering now or wait until boxing day, so I can pass that onto Canada Corals and then send out the group code.

I'll have a look tonight, probably wait until Boxing Day. When does their Boxing Day sale start? On Boxing Day or a few days before?

I would prefer to start ordering now to ensure I get the stuff I really want. I can always add to the order on Boxing Day if anything else looks good.

I would like to start ordering now too - would rather get specific items now and then add more later.

Only low end frags and very few were on sale on last year's boxing day. Hopefully there are more items on sale.

Email or call them, they may have some in stock in their thanks and haven't updated their website. That's what I did for the coral I wanted, and they hadone left that they put in stock for me today.

Group code as stated is GroupTabitha

I have emailed Canada Corals to see what the current sum of the order is.

We have hit the 400$ threshold so there is no shipping cost. We still have a lot of time to get more orders in too!

so we can order up till the 5th? I already ordered stuff but if they update the site again I might want more

tlhood
01-01-2015, 12:15 AM
I would say yes, they told me we can order up until the order ships. I am hoping. The site updates before then too!

Hi all, hope you ad a great new year.

I spoke to Canada corals today and they told me they have a new shipment but are not able to take pictures or update the site until Monday. The weather, as you probably know, is also pretty horrible.

They have offered to extend the date of shipment for another week.

This would allow us to see/snag a few more new frags and save on the shipping, and have them shipped in better weather (so far it looks like it's supposed to warm up a bit starting Wednesday)

Please let me know what you think ASAP. If I don't hear from anyone I will go ahead and extend the shipment date.

I'll grab a few if it's able to be extended

Yep extending sounds good to me. I just need it before the 16th because I will be away for a few days then. Will they be putting pics of the new shipment up this week?

I'm assuming it's been extended?

tlhood

Of the people who got back to me, it has been decided to extend the date by a week. Canada Corals will send me details later this week, but I would expect it to arrive the 12th or 13th. Will keep everyone posted.

They gave the impression that they would start photographing and posting on Monday.

Hi all! some info for you!

The shipment will come in on January 13. I will have it by 1pm if you're floating around the city earlier in the afternoon.

My phone number is 403-540-5430, please call or text me and I will give you my address for pickup.

Another goodie, Canada Corals told me that for sure new pictures of stock will be posted by Friday. That gives us until Monday (to be safe) to add to our order.
