It’s no secret that America is a nation of couch potatoes. In fact, about 80 percent of Americans do not get the recommended amount of weekly exercise, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Yet, millions of others can’t get enough of recreational sports. For some, it’s hiking through the hills on a warm summer day, or hitting the ocean with a stand-up paddleboard or kayak.

Others live for their weekend game of pickup basketball, or their Wednesday night skate at the local ice arena.

Whatever your favorite sport, you need the right equipment to stay safe and perform at the highest level. Many sporting goods stores compete for your business, but Dick’s Sporting Goods is one of the biggest. And with the recent demise of Sports Authority, its footprint is larger than ever.

We’ve got tips to save you money the next time you need new running shoes, shin guards or even a bicycle. Following are seven great ways to cut your costs when shopping at Dick’s.

1. Join the Dick’s email list

The quickest, easiest way to save at Dick’s is to join the mailing list. Just provide the company with your email address, and you will receive a coupon good for 10 percent off your next purchase.

Dick’s will also email you about special sales and promotions, and you’ll be the first to learn about new products.

2. Sign up for the ScoreCard Rewards program

ScoreCard is Dick’s rewards program. Sign up, and you will receive at least one point for nearly every dollar you spend at Dick’s. You can also earn points for shopping at Golf Galaxy and Field & Stream stores.

Once you have accumulated 300 points, you earn a $10 reward good toward Dick’s merchandise. Dick’s says it also gives exclusive coupons to its ScoreCard members.

3. Open a credit card account

Want to double your points total? Sign up for a Dick’s Rewards of Sport Credit Card or Rewards of Sport MasterCard account.

Members score two points for every $1 in everyday in-store purchases, and one point for every $3 of out-of-store purchases.

Or, if you prefer, you can receive 12 months of special financing on in-store purchases of $399 or more after discounts. This offer is valid through Nov. 1.

And right now, you can get an even better deal: Bring in your Sports Authority “League” card, and Dick’s will give you a $20 reward. The offer is good in select markets, according to Dick’s.

4. Check the promos and coupons section

Bargain hunters, rejoice! You can find a compilation of Dick’s current specials at the promos and coupons page on the website.

Chances are you will discover some great deals here. For example, Dick’s recently offered free shipping on any item, with no minimum purchase required. Dick’s also offered free assembly on portable basketball hoops.

5. Take advantage of the price guarantee

Dick’s Winning Price Guarantee promises to match any price on an identical item offered by a local competitor. You have to bring in the retailer’s ad, and certain types of deals — such as rebates, coupons and BOGOs — do not qualify.

6. Shop through Ebates

Ebates is a website that offers cash back when you purchase items at specific retailers. Sign up for Ebates right now and you will receive a $10 gift card if you spend $25 in the next 90 days. Plus, you’ll get 3 percent off on everything you purchase from Dick’s.

7. Get discount gift cards

Discount gift cards are another great way to save at Dick’s. These are cards you purchase for a price that is less than the card’s face value.

For example, Cardpool recently offered Dick’s cards at up to a 14 percent discount, while Raise was selling them for up to 7 percent off. Talk about a great score!
