Tis almost the season to go snowboarding and skiing and Sport Chek has a few little bonuses for you when you buy your gear from them. Get a $30 instant rebate for anything else in the store when you buy your snowboards, skis, boots and/or bindings from Sport Chek. Your purchase must total $149 or more and can be both in-store or online.
This little incentive is great, especially if you were already planning on buying snow gear from Sport Chek. You can use it for hats, mitts, goggles or even something in another category like running or yoga. My oldest son really wants to try snowboarding this year and the cost of the lessons on top of a snowboard rental is way too much. I can buy a snowboard cheaper than I can rent it over the time of the lessons, and hopefully it will get its worth outside of the lessons.
Sport Chek also has a great junior ski and snowboard exchange program, where you buy any new junior ski or snowboard equipment at Sport Chek and you can bring it back next year (within 12 months) and get a 50% credit towards your next ski or snowboard purchase. If your child can use the equipment for longer than one year, if you bring it in within 24 months, you'll get a 25% credit. You do need your original receipt and everything should still be in good condition. This program is amazing because as any mother knows, kids grow and to get brand new equipment at basically 50% off each year (after the first year), is pretty sweet! They also have a program for skating equipment too.
