How to Get a FREE Sports Authority Gift Card
Stay up late, battle the lines, walk away with exactly what you wanted at prices that are only available once a year. Black Friday in-store shopping can be both a feat and a thrill. One of my favorite annual Black Friday traditions is waiting in line outside Sports Authority to get a free Sports Authority gift card. I love that I get paid to wait in line and I can use the free gift card to pay next-to-nothing for my Black Friday Sports Authority purchase.
How It Works. If you are one of the first 80 people (age 18 or older) who enter your local Sports Authority store on Black Friday you’ll get a special Sports Authority gift card worth $10-$500! Doors open at midnight (which is HOURS earlier than past years) so be sure to plan ahead!
Before I get my hands on the free Sports Authority gift card, I like to have in mind what I will spend the free money on. After all, the Black Friday Sports Authority Bonus Bucks are only valid on Black Friday and I don’t want to waste a free gift card.
