We just got our hands on the full scan for Sports Authority’s newspaper ads for Black Friday (see below). This year stores open on Thanksgiving Day at 6:00pm then close at midnight to reopen again at 6:00am. We recommend that you check out before 10:00am on Friday to take advantage of the best doorbuster offers. And if you’re one the first 50 people in line on Thanksgiving day, you’ll get a free folding chair. We’re just not sure if you’ll get the chair early enough to actually use it while waiting in line. The first folks in line will also qualify for up to $500 in bonus bucks. And just before you leave your front door, remember to bring the two $25.00 gift card coupons with you if you plan on buying anything from Columbia or North Face.
So what are some of our favorite deals this year at Sports Authority? We like the shoe deals – You’ll find select New Balance, Nike, Adidas, Uggs, Under Amour, and Brooks shoes for buy-one-get-one 50% off. Hundreds of balls are buy one get one free. And exercise gear from yoga to weight training is on sale for up to 50% off.
Sports Authority’s Black Friday sale is also a good time to get some of the high-priced training equipment that you’ve always wanted. You’ll save 50% to 60% off the retail price on popular treadmills, including the Freemotion 800 at $1200 off (listed on sale for $999.99) and Pro-Form Performance Sport treadmill for $700 off (listed on sale for $499.99). Best of all, if you spend over $499.99 on fitness equipment then they will ship it out to your home for free.
For the golf enthusiast in the family, you’ll be able to find some of the best prices of the year on a full set of new golf clubs. Be sure to check out the Wilson 8-piece Hybrid Iron Set that’s $350.00 off the original price, on sole for only $149.99. Or pick up an Adams Super LS Driver for $99.99 (normally sold for $399.99). And if you just need a new golf bag, you’ll save 50% on the entire stock of bags by Tommy Armour.
