Happy Thanksgiving from LaxAllStars.com! Thanksgiving is a day reserved for family, friends, rest, and relaxation; a day full of great conversations, food you’ve missed for a year, and smiles all around.
But as the holiday season has become more commercialized and Black Friday ads pop up everywhere, sometimes it’s tough to stay focused. The “best deals in the world” get get us carried away.

We weren’t given Thursday to plan for Friday, but those ads get our attention and we start strategizing our plan of attack for holiday shopping. The next thing we know, we’re rewinding ads on television and contemplating setting our alarms for 5am.
To save you from that ache and pain, we’re going to share a few of the best lacrosse-specific online deals we could find during this time of year. So sit back, relax, have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and sleep until noon on Friday instead of waiting in line outside of Best Buy. You get any lacrosse player or fan exactly what he or she needs from the comfort of your own home without having to experience the chaos of Black Friday.
Note: While we spent lots of time searching for the best deals to share with you, it’s quite possible that we missed one or two. If you know of good deal that we overlooked, please feel free to drop information about it in the comments section below.
Lacrosse.com, a leading online lacrosse retailer, is offering 25% off any order over $100. That kind of deal makes this the perfect time to double check your gear supply and if needed, order a new lacrosse head or two. A $200 purchase will cost $150 when promo code “3THANKS” is used at checkout. Lacrosse.com is also offering free shipping on orders over $100. We’re not sure if you’re able to use two codes at the same time, but it’s certainly worth giving a try. The code for free shipping is “3FS100″.
Lacrosse Unlimited is offering free shipping on all orders throughout Thanksgiving weekend. Just use coupon code “TURKEY12” at checkout, and you’ll get standard ground shipping for free. LU is the world’s largest lacrosse retailer, so they have a huge selection of gear to choose from, and it’s easy to find stuff in their new online store.
Here’s the way I look at it – If you don’t have to pay shipping for an online purchase, then you’re basically shopping in a retail store. In some cases, it may very well be more affordable to shop online than it is to shop in person. When you shop online, you’re not paying for gas!
The Maverik Cascade Boys Lacrosse Starter Package includes a helmet, gloves, shoulder pads, arm pads and a stick for $159.99. Free shipping is also included, and you get a choice between the Maverik Bazooka or Maverik Bad Boy lacrosse sticks. We’ve heard some interesting things about the Bazooka in the past. It was Maverik’s first lacrosse head and also one of the most durable heads on the market when it was originally released. ComLax is also hosting a “50% Off Blowout” sale on large assortment of heads and shafts that might be worth checking out.
Lax.com, another leading online lacrosse retailer, is offering free shipping on any purchase within next 48 hours. Lax.com is known for having low prices and a great assortment of gear to choose from, and with no order restrictions, you have the chance to spend as little or as much as you want and still get free shipping. Not bad at all!
Last but not least, our 2012 Holiday Grab Bags. Yep, shameless self promotion right here. But hey, we’re offering a really good deal. This year’s Holiday Grab Bags feature products from some of the best and most innovative lacrosse brands on the market. The things you’ll receive in your Grab Bag are stylish, reliable, and some are even useful for improving your game.
Our Holiday Grab Bag sale kicked off earlier this week with last year’s customers receiving an early bird special and getting first dibs on the lot. The sale is now open to anyone, and Grab Bags are available in The Lacrosse Shop with an order deadline of Friday, December 14th. Holiday Grab Bags are available in two options: Standard ($40) or Ultimate ($100). The retail value of our Standard Grab Bag is $60, and the retail value of the Ultimate is $200.
