I’m back again, here you go! Good luck finding what you need and saving some money
Wattie Ink Outlet
I’m back for my sixth year sharing deals that I find for triathlon & Cycling gear! I love pulling these posts together, as I’m an alpha shopper myself.
Its always interesting to see stats around Black Friday and found this infographic to be insightful:
This infographic on ad conversions shows how effective ad conversions have been during black Friday week. I’m sure my post throws this off a bit for the smaller vendors I highlight:
I’m back and the retailers have decided to roll out some great deals even before BF! I hope you find this helpful, as it’s always fun for me. This years big news is that REI decided to close their stores on Black Friday. I for one applaud their efforts to #optoutside
Enjoy your shopping and see you racing next year!
Be sure to look at last weeks list, as many of those sales are still live as well.
Some interesting research & stats from IBM:
“Black Friday Online Sales Up 8.5% Over Last Year, 20% Of Sales Came From iOS.
Online sales were up 8.5% over the same period on Black Friday 2013, it found. Though mobile didn’t claim over half of online traffic as it did on Thursday, its percentage of the online sales is steadily increasing. This Black Friday, mobile sales accounted for 26.1% of all online sales, an increase of 24.7% year-over-year.
That being said, not all mobile visitors are the same when it comes to conversions. Consumers visiting from smartphones tend to browse, while tablet shoppers actually buy. On Black Friday, smartphones drove 33.6% of total online traffic, or more than double that of tablets (12.8%). But tablets accounted for 14.3% of online sales, versus smartphones’ 11.7%.
Also continuing yesterday’s trends, iOS shoppers remained more valuable to retailers with an average order size of $127.34 – higher than Android, at $101.82. iOS also sent more traffic than Android with 31.8% of all online traffic versus 14.5% on Android.
And finally, Apple iOS sales accounted for 20.2% of total online sales, nearly four times that of Android, which drove only 5.6% of all online sales.”

I’m back after being a bit mia this year. These posts are fun and I love helping other triathletes and cyclists find great deals. This list will grow significantly this upcoming weekend and I will also post a cyber Monday list as we get closer. Please ping me if any links are broken or you know of any other great deals (mhutto at gmail). This will be my fourth year of this list and I hope it helps you! Worth noting is that I compile this list for fun and it’s a manual process, so please give me some time to update. I’m open to free gear and additional discounts if anyone wants to pass along 🙂
Please support many of these small companies focusing on cycling/triathlon
I’m back with the Cyber Monday list that it growing by the minute! Many of the BF deals are still live, so be sure to look at previous post below this one. Worth noting is that Kswiss announced via their FB page that they won’t have a BOGO deal this year. Will Rapha bring back their 15% off they had 2yrs ago?
FIRSTENDURANCE: SALE EXPIRED
Great deal on Liquidshots!
ZOOT SPORTS: SALE EXPIRED
Welcome to my 4th annual Black Friday/Cyber Monday blog post. I’ve always been an alpha consumer and love trying the newest and greatest. I enjoy keeping up this annual post. Worth noting is that I don’t use any paid ads or ad sense programs. My goal is just to share the deals I uncover.
This year should be interesting, as retailers have little room for error in the fast approaching and shortened holiday shopping season. A late Thanksgiving – the unofficial kickoff for holiday sales – has lopped six days off the gift buying season. The stakes are high as the holiday season accounts for about half the profits of many retailers according to Morgan Stanley.
2013 Bike closeouts, sleek GPS watches, Powertaps, sweet kits and recovery items like compression gear and boots will be some of the hot items again this year. Stay tuned, as I should have the beginnings of a list by week end!
