[ended] August Giveaway - Aurora Satellite

At Cruisers Forum we are pleased to offer our members a Monthly Vendor Giveaway Prize, which we hope will help our members learn about the sponsors who support our community. Our goal is to create ways for our members to engage with our sponsors, earning a chance to win a prize donated by the sponsor. We feel this will provide the sponsor a unique opportunity to embrace our laser focused audience and provide our amazing members an easy and free way to win some gear!

A very special welcome aboard and thanks to Global Marine Networks for providing the prize for our August Giveaway, a FREE Aurora Iridium WiFi Satellite Phone/Terminal and 3 Months of XGate compression email with a value of $2,138!

OR a $500 Gift Certificate to use in their online store

PLUS 10% discount for all entrants (Discount Code: CruisersForumSAVE) and a $400 discount for purchases of Aurora (Discount Code: AUR-CF-SAV).

Discount code is valid from August 1st, 2014 through September 30th, 2014. Please enter in discount code in the "comments" section at checkout or provide it to the sales representative over the phone.

What Is RedPort Aurora?

With Aurora your smartphone is your satellite phone. RedPort Aurora gives you the power of the Iridium satellite network with the devices you already use - your smartphone, tablet, or computer. Make a satellite call from your iPhone or Android device. Check email and download weather files over WiFi. Share your location with others. With Aurora it's done. Aurora is VoIP voice calls, data, and tracking all in one. Anywhere in the world. Learn more here.

What Is XGate?
XGate satellite phone email is the easy way to access email while on the water or in remote locations. XGate is simply the fastest, easiest and most reliable satellite phone email available, saving you time, money and frustration. Learn more here.

Sponsor Information:

We sell satellite hardware, satellite airtime, marine weather, vessel tracking, and data optimization from Iridium, Globalstar, Inmarsat and many more at great prices, and with excellent technical support and customer service.
