American Legacy Fishing Company – NEWS FLASH – December 12, 2010
This Issue: SHIMANO CURADO $40 OFF, Last Minute Christmas Shipping, CHRISTmas Gift Guide, More….
This newsletter is short and sweet. We’ve just learned most of our kids and grandkids will be here over Christmas and frankly, we can’t wait. But, we need to get ready and buy food, snacks, and lots of other stuff to make sure everyone is comfortable and has a great Christmas. Time being as short as it is I hope you’ll understand if this newsletter is fairly short. But by no means lacking a great deal!
That said, short is not necessarily a bad thing, especially when we have what I consider the BEST DEAL of the year. Just take a look below and I’m pretty sure you’ll agree.
We’ll be back soon with another newsletter with more great deals and some new stories and advice, but for now that’s about “it” as we’re off to Costco to do some serious Christmas “stocking” for our kids and grandkids visit.
Be safe during these hectic “pre-Christmas” days and be sure to take a look at this remarkable special. You’ll be glad you did!
Tight reigns (hey, it’s Christmas),
BEST DEAL OF THE YEAR – Brand NEW in Box Shimano Curado 200 Series Reels on SALE $40 off – $139.99……………….
No one. I mean no one sells this MADE IN JAPAN reel for this price. It has a normal retail of $179.99 and that’s the price from Tijuana to Tokyo. Except at American Legacy Fishing! This is our Merry Christmas Special Thank You to all of you. And believe me, it’s the BEST DEAL WE’VE OFFERED on ANYTHING THIS YEAR! These are “fresh” New in Box Curado 200 Series reels (other sizes are not on sale) with the full Shimano Warranty, etc. The only thing that makes them different is the price which is the LOWEST OFFERED ANYWHERE.
The Shimano Curado CU200 Series low-profile casting reels are hands down our staff’s pick for the best “Bang-For-The-Buck” reel we offer. We’ve sold Hundreds at $179.99 each year since they were introduced in early 2009. And I suppose we could continue selling them at this price and everyone would be happy campers. BUT, it IS CHRISTmas and we want to do something to say “Thanks” to all of our wonderful customers.
Here’s the deal: We have marked the Curado CU200E5 (5.0:1 – RH), the CU200E7 (7.0:1 RH), and the CU201E7 (7.0:1 LH) down to an UNBELIEVABLE $139.99 each. Folks, that’s $40 bucks OFF! We have about 53 of the CU200E5’s, 73 of the CU200E7’s, and about 15 of the CU201E7’s in stock, so it’s definitely First Come – First Served on these fantastic reels. When they’re gone, the sale will end and the price will go back to $179.99 as soon as we can obtain new inventory.
The Shimano Curado’s are Made in Japan and the highest quality through and through. They won the 2008 ICAST AWARD for Best Freshwater Reel as well as Best of Show! They feature the new HEG forged gears, Dartanium drag, 7 bearings, titanium line guide, and many, many more premium features. Every Curado Casting Reel is Approved for Saltwater. We’ve been using these reels for 2 years and find they are simply bullet-proof in reliability and quality. Frankly, at $179.99 they’re a heck of a bargain, so at $139.99 they are nothing less than a steal!
You would be crazy not to take advantage of this deal. As I said above, we have a LIMITED SUPPLY, so the early bird gets the worm, or in this case one of the best fishing reels available today! If your order is $200 or more shipping is free to any USA address.
LAST MINUTE Christmas Orders – We Got Your Back……………….
OK, today is December 12, 2010. By our math that means you have about 10 business days to order and receive your package. Figuring that FedEx and UPS won’t deliver on Christmas and UPS doesn’t deliver on Saturdays (FedEx, who we are proud to be partnered with, Does) your “window” for ordering and receiving something is closing quickly.
We’re old softies about Christmas and the last thing we want is to see anyone disappointed, so we will promise you that we will do everything in our power to make sure whatever you order from us reaches its destination before Christmas Eve as long as the shipping address is a USA address. We’ll make sure no one is disappointed or missed by Santa. Just help us out by ordering as early as possible and we’ll do the rest. Overseas? We’ll ship immediately and use the fastest service you choose to make sure we do everything in our power to get your package to you before Christmas.
We have been assured by FedEx and USPS that they will be delivering “as usual” on both Christmas Eve as well as New Year’s Eve to any USA address. Overseas the schedules vary by country as well as by areas within countries, so we suggest you check with your local office for specifics regarding deliveries.
We just don’t want anyone disappointed, so the sooner you order the sooner we can make sure all is well!
