Academy Sports + Outdoors 2016 Black Friday deals

The 2016 Academy Sports + Outdoors Black Friday ad is here! Here are the chain’s Black Friday highlights:

  • 25% off select Under Armour and Nike apparel for the whole family.
  • Fitbit Alta for $99.99 (regularly $129.99). (Check our Fitbit Alta vs. Charge 2 comparison to see if it’s the right Fitbit for you.)

When shopping, be mindful — your generous gift list might result in a bit of credit card balance. In the 2015 holiday season, 44% of American shoppers incurred debt and took about two months to pay it off. If you’re part of this crowd, make sure to avoid paying interest with the right credit card. NerdWallet’s list of best credit cards for holiday shopping includes cards with 0% interest periods that may last from 9 to 21 months. There are plenty of reasons to stress over the holidays; don’t let credit card interest be one of them.

Readers were advised to study the ad carefully, as some deals were limited to specific days of the Thanksgiving weekend. A handful of discounts started as early as Wednesday, while others were available only Friday or extended through Saturday. Most Academy stores opened their doors at 5 a.m. during the sale.
