Last Year’s Black Friday Ad

Updated on Wednesday November 9, 2022: Some of the best deals of the season at Academy Sports + Outdoors are coming at their Black Friday 2022 sale. So what are the featured deals this year? Take a look for yourself as we’ve posted their 34-page Black Friday ad below. Here’s a quick summary of what’s coming:

  • The sale will run from Sunday, November 20th (that’s 4 days before Thanksgiving) to Saturday November 26th or while in-stock supplies last. Their Cyber Monday sale is expected to begin immediately afterwards on Sunday morning, November 27th.
  • In terms of the deals, you’ll find 30% to 50% off specials across the store. Just keep in mind that some deals are only offered in stores.
  • If shopping in-stores, we expect all locations to once again be closed on Thanksgiving day itself. But to make up for it, doors typically open extra early at 5:00AM on Friday morning and close as late as 11:00PM.

Black Friday 2022 Start & End Dates

Academy Sports + Outdoors always runs plenty of deals all throughout the holiday season… it seems like they just go from one sale to another, to another, to another. But in terms of “Black Friday” they will kick off the sale on the Sunday before Thanksgiving and run it through Saturday night or while supplies last. Then, historically, they immediately rotate into their Cyber Monday sale early on Sunday morning and run it through Tuesday night.

  • Confirmed Black Friday sale start date: Sunday November 20, 2022.
  • Confirmed Black Friday sale end date: Saturday November 26, 2022 or while in-stock inventory lasts.
  • Expected Cyber Monday sale dates: Sunday-Tuesday, November 27-29, 2022.
