Looking for marineland led strip light

Anyone know of any stored locally that sell these? I couldn't order it from Amazon cuz the company selling it doesn't ship to Hawaii.

I just bought one of these from Amazon. They shipped it. (Free Prime shipping.) Are you sure you can't buy it shipped by Amazon?

Well the only one I could find was sold by marineland reef and when I went to checkout it said the product can't be shipped to my address.

Sorry didn't realize, but also are you from Hawaii? It probably shipped to you because you don't live in Hawaii and that they ship to you. Amazon said it couldn't be shipped to my address. Can anyone from HAWAII, not anywhere else, can anyone from HAWAII please help.

I had two finnex led lights shipped to Oahu, about a year apart from each other. I found that with prime free shipping, it's best to find products sold and shipped by Amazon LLC, rather than sold by one of their partners or something. Look for tiny little name in blue. Sometimes I would buy toner or something from another seller on Amazon and they will ship it to HI the first time free on prime, but it's like they freak over the price or something because the next quarter I try to reorder the exact same thing from the same seller and suddenly they don't ship outside the 48 any more. It sucks because sometimes the third party sellers are cheaper than directly from Amazon itself. Your best bet is to find the product you like, then click on the "New & Used" button to see other sellers, and just go down the list to find someone who is willing to ship to HI for free or through prime.

This is the one I got:
Finnex FugeRay Planted+ Aquarium LED Light Plus Moonlights, 24-Inch https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00GH9HSI0..._MMVawb5XD5VCT

I don't currently live in Hawaii, but I was born and raised there, and my family still lives there.

As Quifish says, Amazon should ship to Hawaii. The other merchants who sell through Amazon may not.

IME, the quickest way to find things shipped by Amazon is to check the "Prime" box on the left menu of the search page. That way, you'll only see items shipped by Amazon.

You can do this even if you don't have a Prime membership.

Ok so I tried that and have been unsuccessful. It seems that only marineland sells the light on Amazon. I couldn't find any other retailer. Is there any stores hear that carry it?

You could ask your favorite local pet store to special order it for you.

If you really want it, order it from a major retailer like Foster and Smith.

They'll charge you extra for shipping, but they should sell it to you.

Glad to hear it worked out for you!

You'll love the light. I love mine.
