DICK’S Sporting Goods has been around since 1948 and offers a wide variety of gear and apparel for every type of sports enthusiast. It is America’s largest sporting goods retailer, with over 850 brick-and-mortar locations and a robust online presence.
The good news is that DICK’S offers a 10% military discount, but there are some important terms and restrictions you need to know if you want to take full advantage.
What special offers does DICK’S have for military and veterans?
DICK’S Sporting Goods does not officially offer an active military or veteran discount, but some stores offer an in-person 10% discount upon request. The discount is available at the individual store manager’s discretion.
You can ask DICK’S employees when you visit a location or call a specific store before you visit to see the store’s policy. Use the DICK’S Sporting Goods store location tool to find a nearby location.
The big thing to note is that the 10% discount is not offered online.
Also, the discount is not available for items currently on sale or on DICK’S promotion exclusion list, gift cards, previously purchased merchandise, and clearance items.
Another way to take advantage of DICK’S discounts is to sign up on the company website to alert you to email and text deals that are sent out occasionally to the public. Discount offers change weekly, and the savings range from 5% to as much as 30%.
You can also get a DICK’S ScoreCard that lets you collect one point for every dollar you spend. Earn rewards cash, receive exclusive offers and discounts, get inside access to product releases, and check out faster with saved online purchase information.
The ScoreCard can also be used in person and online at Golf Galaxy and Field and Steam Shops.
You must accumulate at least 300 points to redeem rewards. When you reach 300 points, that works out to $10 in rewards.
There is a reward cap of $500, and points expire after one year if they have not been transferred into rewards.
You can also get a discount with DICK’S Cash which is offered at certain times of the year. You’ll get a coupon via email about ten days after meeting the minimum purchase requirements.
How do active military and veterans get discounts at stores that offer them?
Military members and veterans should ask for the discount at the register of a participating store. You’ll be given the discount after you verify your eligibility and prove your military or veteran status.
Some suggested forms of ID to prove your service include:
- Military ID card
- Veterans or Retired ID card or VA health care card
- Your current Leave and Earnings Statement (LES).
- Your DD Form 214 Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty.
If you have other forms of active military or veteran identification, contact your DICK’S Sporting Goods location to ensure they will accept it.
Does DICK’S offer price matching?
DICK’S Sporting Goods does offer price matching. To qualify, customers must provide DICK’S with an ad or website that shows the same product at a lower price.
The best part is that you can use sale prices from another DICK store to get a price match guarantee.
You can do this online, but active military and veteran customers who also want the military discount at a participating store must request the price match in person.
