  • Honoring all Marine Depot gift cards at Bulk Reef Supply
  • Transferring of loyalty reward points to a BRS account
  • Honoring the Marine Depot return policy for orders placed prior to June 23, 2021 (all sales on or after June 23, 2021, at Marinedepot.com are final)
  • Assisting with warranty support for qualifying orders.

Hopefully they keep shipping out of CA. Their shipping was far superior for me to BRS'. next day vs 5+ days really made a difference.
Also hope they carry the same products. I got lots of products from them that BRS didn't carry
MD didn't ship out of California

They shipped out of Vegas and got to California the next day though.
Taking out East Coast and West Coast next day deliveries is a BAD move.
A lot of people used MD for that reason with out that and now with it going to Minnesota it hurts the Industry in whole. They better have a plan for this or it could backfire as the Big Boys take out all the competition. I know it leaves me scrambling to find another outlet now because 3 Day shipping doesn't cut it in this day an age.

MD was BRS biggest competitor I believe (someone correct me if I'm wrong). Lots of times went there because BRS didn't carry the same stuff. Also, shipping was far faster.

I don't think they've shipped out of CA for years... just NV and GA.
