As of this week, Dick’s Sporting Goods has reopened 80% of their stores nationwide after temporarily closing during the COVID-19 outbreak — and, like the various discount department stores, they’ve returned with big sales on Nike, Adidas, Under Armour and more.
Sporting goods were one of the hardest-hit segments of the retail industry, so Dick’s is moving quickly to clear inventory and recover their second-quarter sales.
Here’s what you need to know:
Dick’s is discounting clearance up to 75% off right now.
Dick’s employees say they’ve been busy marking down products throughout the store the past few weeks, and the result is a lot more clearance than usual, scattered throughout the store in just about every department.
It’s next to impossible to find a tag for 75% off clearance, but they’re out there. Discounts of 25-50% off clearance are far more common. Look for the red clearance signs.
Pay attention to the colored stickers on signs and price tags.
Most of the clearance items now have colored stickers on the price tags, indicating additional discounts to the last marked price. But just know — the colors don’t mean the same things in all sections.
In shoes and apparel, green and purple stickers mean an item costs the listed price, yellow stickers mean you take an extra 25% off the last printed price, pink stickers take an extra 50% off, and the extremely rare black stickers mean discounts of 75% off the clearance price on the tag.
In just about all other sections — accessories, outdoor equipment, sporting goods, etc. — purple, green and yellow are “priced as marked,” while pink stickers are an extra 30% off and black stickers are another 50% off.
Get Nike, Adidas & Under Armour for nearly 70% off retail price.

There’s a TON of shoes on sale — many for 25-50% off clearance prices.
Yellow and pink stickers (25-50% off) are pretty common on a number of brands, including Nike, Adidas, Chaco, Under Armour and more — encompassing cleats, sandals and everything in between.
There are some really good deals on various accessories — like up to 84% off.
We found MMA gloves for just $6.24 (reg. $39.99), athletic tape for $2.98 (reg. $7.99), and a $100 Wilson football for just $34.99.
Don’t breeze past the “priced as marked” stickers — you can still find deals for more than 50% off.
Just because it doesn’t have a yellow, pink or black sticker, doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a bad deal. Dick’s has their own clothing line, DSG, and a lot of DSG items are on clearance right now.
We found a DSG women’s athletic shirt for just $6.97, about 54% off the retail price of $15.00. Even an Under Armour youth hoodie for $26.97, 40% off the $45.00 MSRP. Don’t miss out on some good first-round clearance.
Check back every Sunday; new markdowns are happening weekly.
New sales and markdowns usually take place over the weekend, so as part of our Dick’s Sporting Goods shopping hacks, we recommend that you check in to browse the new markdowns on Sundays.
There’s a bunch of clearance online, too — but it’s not as good of a deal.
Although store managers say the final prices online reflect the prices of markdowns in the stores, that didn’t seem to be the case when we compared.
The Adidas Tiro crew socks we found in store for $5.23 are still listed at the base price of $10.00 online. A yellow Adidas Postgame Crew women’s sweatshirt costs $28.48 in store after taking the additional 25% off clearance, but is listed at $34.99 online.
