Ask Brad: How To Get A Deal On Nike?

In this week’s Ask Brad, Brad Wilson from Brad’s Deals gives his take on how to score a deal on Nike products:  

Brad: There’s a reason Nike is the biggest sports brand out there. They have merchandise for every athletic endeavor, their prices are always fair, and the Nike Swoosh logo is pretty sweet, isn’t it? Trouble is, there are hundreds of stores out there to choose from, leaving the occasional consumer paralyzed by decisions, decisions, decisions! This is where we come in. 

If you want to break through the clutter and endless choices, we’ve rounded up the top stores in our opinion when it comes to Nike pricing and variety. You won’t have to wait for the next great seasonal sale to find a super deal at these locations.  Let’s jump into it.

While there are certainly dozens and dozens of other reputable stores out there you can find a good deal, in our shopping wisdom, we’ve narrowed it down to seven. 

1. Finish Line

Finish Line always has around 800 shoes on sale for up to 60% off. Most of which are Nikes. You can easily slim down your search by price and brand, and even choose from a stellar collection of Nike Air Max, Nike Huarache, Nike Flyknit, and other popular styles. We highly recommend Finish Line for Air Max and Jordan. 

2. Macy’s

Finish Line directly supplies Macy’s with most of their Nike shoes. This translates to Nikes in the range of $30 to $50 basically all the time. The great thing about Macy’s is that you never know which amazing price you will find, as Macy’s generally changes out their merchandise for new ones once sold out. One advantage Macy’s has over Finish Line is their occasional free shipping at $49, and even $25, saving you an extra $10. We recommend Macy’s for hot styles like Tanjun and Air Max.

3. Nike.com

Yes, Nike.com belongs high up on this list. Not because they own the namesake of the brand, but because their sales section is excellent year-round. Additionally, every few months they throw an epic 25% off clearance sale, dropping many prices to the lowest of the year, anywhere. You can also bag free shipping year-round when you sign up for a free NikePlus Account.

Nike.com is also great for clothes. You will not find a better assortment of hot Nike attire anywhere else–yes, even at Macy’s. There are currently around 200 Nike shoes on sale under $50, so if you value free shipping (and who doesn’t?), we would go with Nike.com over Finish Line and Macy’s.

4. Kohl’s

Kohl’s is great for finding uber-stylish yet hard-to-find styles like Arrowz, Air Zoom, and Winflo. They always surprise me with ridiculous pricing on styles like these that normally go for over $70 elsewhere. One caveat is the high free shipping threshold of $75, which is a bit of a downer, but the deals are so good sometimes that it offsets the shipping fee. 

5. Eastbay

The best thing about Eastbay is their breadth of styles. Aside from Finish Line, there are very few retailers that match them. Eastbay also has free shipping all the time and does discount codes. Tip — if you’re an athlete, we recommend this store to purchase cleats.

6. Academy Sports

Academy Sports has become famous for their super-generous pricing on shoes and free shipping over $25. Nike is no exception. However, there is not as much variety to pick from, but you will be pleased with what you pay. Browse their Hot Deals and Clearance sections to routinely find Nikes for $40 shipped.

7. Dick’s Sporting Goods

While Dick’s pricing is relatively average for Nike, the pricing isn’t average every Thursday. On Thursdays, Dick’s throws their Flash Sale, which offers many items on the site for 50% off, including popular Air Max styles like Invigors and Sequent 3. This sale lasts for just one day. Shipping is also free on orders of $49, and even when it’s not Thursday, you will find around 200 styles between $25 and $50.

Set up Nike Deal Alerts

Let’s cut to the chase. The smartest shoppers out there use our Deal Alerts. What’s a Deal Alert? You will be notified whenever your favorite brand or product goes live at Brad’s Deals.
