Cabela’s 2015 Black Friday deals

In 2015, shoppers at the outdoor gear retailer didn’t have to hunt far for big discounts, including doorbuster deals on apparel, guns, meal prep and food storage equipment, and accessories.

Some highlights from the 28-page ad:

  • 25% off all North Face men’s Canyonlands and women’s Agave jackets.
  • Columbia outerwear for $99.99-$169.99 (regularly $150-$250).

Cabela’s online customers found the same deals, but in-store shoppers had access to more promotions, such as Cabela’s bucks for December purchase (for example, a North Face apparel purchase granted you $20 in Cabela’s bucks) or the store’s famous giveaways.

The first 600 people in line to enter the store had a chance to win gifts, such as:

  • $100 Cabela’s gift cards.  
  • Boss Audio portable speaker.
  • Winchester XPR bolt-action rifle combo ($639.99 value).  
  • Zeiss Terra ED 8-by-42 binoculars ($399.99 value).

The sale lasted from 5 to 10 a.m. on Black Friday, so shoppers looking for the best deals were advised to arrive early. Some deals didn’t apply at all locations, so this year, it would be wise to check with your local store before your shopping excursion. Cabela’s also offered a special layaway program through Dec. 24.

If you like shopping at Cabela’s, you’ll definitely want to check out the Black Friday deals at these similar stores: Bass Pro Shops, Gander Mountain and Dick’s Sporting Goods.
