Default Academy Deal Alert

I know this is primarily a hunting site but I'm sure a lot of you guys fish too. The academy guy I talked to said they were putting most kayak models on clearance at most of their Houston locations.

Just got off the phone with the Academy in SA. at Shavano Pk. They have 2 of these in stock. They will NOT price match this even tho their price match guarantee says they will. For what it's worth...

Oh, and select All Star rods were marked from $89 to $22.

And they had one of those single sack, dump style crawfish boilers marked from $499 to $199.

Just FYI

Follow up...

I went to my Academy yesterday and they didn't have any in stock so checked other stores for me. Found one near by so I went over to get it. Didn't ring up as clearance. For some reason the guys at the first location could see the clearance but this store couldn't.

They ended up calling around and long story short...They gave me the clearance price and asked me not to tell my friends or family.

Thanks for posting this. My wife is the owner of a brand new kayak and we have a fishing trip planned for our anniversary next weekend. Perfect timing.

For those that might not know Ocean Kayak is a really good brand. Those are really solid boats. Much better than the Perceptions.

You guys got a great deal.

Went to one of the stores in SA (Northwoods) and they currently have one in stock. Talked to the guys about the price, they pulled up a few things on the computer and according to them, the yellow color of that model is supposed to be the one on clearance, not the green/black one. They also said that it varies from store to store what's on clearance and what isn't, which is why different stores are showing different things. Guy gave me the name of another location that had two in stock, he looked it up as I was right there. I called that location a few minutes later, that guy asked me which color I was looking for, I told him either one, and then he said they don't have any in stock

They also don't have any Ocean Kayaks on their website, clearance or not.

Weird deal all around but glad you guys were able to take advantage of it.

I'm hoping that they do eventually go on sale here in San Antonio. My nephew is looking for one. He's stationed in Arizona and is looking to take one back with him around Christmas time.
