Or is this something that only a big box retailer like Musician's Friend does?

https://blackfriday.com/stores/guitar-center/flyers/black-friday/page-3 they have a spruce top mitchell for 70 bucks. page one of their ad also has a 15% off nonsale item coupon

https://blackfriday.com/stores/music-arts/flyers/black-friday/page-2 have to buy a guitar though you get a free uke with it. the ad also states one item for 20% off too and it didn't look like a coupon.

Can do, buy any size hard ply-case from Mainland Ukes for $50. Shipping not included.
Black Friday only ( order online and we will adjust the total on our end when we process the order.)

Cool! My spouse is looking for a more protective case than the soft sided gig bag for my Snail for me for Christmas. He's hoping to find one locally since he plans on taking the uke with him to check fit. There's a Music and Arts store locally - I wonder it they stock cases or only do mail order? Do Mainland Uke cases fit Snails?

Most ukuleles fit our cases unless they have extra wide hips or something unusual like that.

I am in Gaithersburg, Maryland for the weekend, and Victor Litz already has their Black Friday prices up http://victorlitz.com/

Nearly walked out of there with an Eleuke this afternoon - the four shown are all priced at $150 and I really liked the one that is second from the left. It would be a great travel uke/office uke. Do realize that I had no intention of getting any ukulele, much less an electric ukulele, when I got up today.

Went back to my motel room to think about it. Then I read Olarte's sopranino thread, and remembered I wanted an iUke for a travel uke, and it is $144 on Amazon.

So, I strummed on my lovely Luna in my room instead, which is really all the ukulele I need when I am on the road. But.. I do have some time before I leave for home tomorrow and I didn't get a chance to look at all of their other ukuleles....

If you want something silly and fun ... or holiday gift for a small child, perhaps, I just posted in a separate thread about Wal-Mart's $10 weekend deal (half off) on a "Disney Character Guitar" (http://forum.ukuleleunderground.com/showthread.php?102404-10-Cartoon-Character-Ukes-at-Walmart-get-them-today-or-take-a-chance-this-weekend) ... which is, of course, an adorable cartoon-character plastic soprano uke. (They do also have a guitar by the same maker, for about $40 - I don't think there's a Black Friday deal on that one.)

I just picked up two hot pink Minnie Mouse ones ... I'll post in the other thread how they turn out. (They are, of course, returnable. :))

I have the Minnie and the Mickey for my grandkids to play along with me. The geared tuners are a little wonky, but usable. I put Aquila Nylguts on the Minnie for my then 3 year old granddaughter and kept the original strings on for the 2 year old. Not a bad sound. They are from First Act.

It's not a Black Friday offer, but I think it's worth mentioning. GotAUkulele.com has a birthday competition. And one of the prizes is a new ukulele! So if anybody needs a new uke (and who doesn't?), take a chance! :)

(Yeah, I know I just decreased my chances of winning, but that's okay)

(Edit: Sorry, I missed that bazmaz just made a thread about the competition)

So let me see here, they are on an island. If I don't live on that island free ground shipping does me no good.............think I will pass :p

He has a valid point. Free ground shipping on one Hawaiian island only helps a very limited clientele.

Does you no good either in CA eh?

I hope living in CA that you really have nothing to do with that company.

First all if you look on the website, its says "Black Friday Free Shipping on any order! Between Nov. 24th - Dec. 1st. UPS - Ground - Domestic Orders Only." Secondly, I have shipped things to Hawaii UPS Ground. Even though the item shipped has to be flown over regardless, you can still ship things classified as UPS Ground, but it will be a more costly UPS Ground rate. Finally, Isaac Peters of the Ukulele Lab in Honolulu posted on this thread that they have some Black Friday specials, and I don't see anyone making rude comments to him. Maybe someone that lives on the island of Oahu who reads this thread can benefit from these sales. And what is up with that comment on me living in CA. I posted a suggestion on a reputable dealer and I stand by it, regardless of rude comments.

No apologies needed.

The whole "Who said this was for you?" comment stoked the black flame. Its best to let it remain a spark and move on, why instigate? Its really quite funny.
