I have had my eye of Kayaks for a couple weeks now and last week when I was in Dicks an employee said they are having their biggest sale of the year this week. I got a circular with the Sunday paper confirming this. I am not sure if this is regional or not but I am in upstate NY.

There are some really great deals to be had and I will be picking one up this week.

Sale is June 26 - July 2. Financing available for purchases of 299 or more.

Some models:

9'8" Rebel Package (w/ paddle and vest) ___ Reg: 449.99 - Now: 249.99

I grew up with canoes and this will be my first boat of my own. Kayaks just seem much more practical in many situations, which if probably why they have gained so much popularity since I was a kid. And now with so many different models available, anyone can find something to fit their needs.

Hey guys, I took advantage of this deal today. Wanted to mention to use this $10 off coupon (http://a.slickdeals.net/attachment.php?attachmentid=571649&d=1307160721) to make the deal even slicker.

Also get a score card. I purchased the kayak and used one 10$ off coupon. Then used the points I accumulated from the kayak with another 10$ off coupon to get a 70$ paddle for 15$!

There are other options if you don't wanna spend the money.

Yakima makes this, http://www.dickssportinggoods.com...Id=3997687 which I know a couple people who use them and love it for the price. Said to be a little time consuming, but at a cost savings of course.

I don't have a roof rack myself (sedan, for fusion) but will just fold down my rear seats and bungee down my truck, cheap and quick. Worked perfect for taking it home from the store.

Complete Kayak Newb here. How bad is the Coleman Hooligan? I am looking for a starter Kayak and this is priced very low.

you could get a cheap truck for that. Seriously these are sweet deals here. Too bad I just bought one off Craigslist yesterday. Very similar to the Rebel w/paddle for $200 delivered here. Didn't see this coming but Dicks is quite a ways down the road, shipping is prohibitive.

Spread the word. Not enough kayak love here on SD. Everyone must be too busy looking online for deals to get out of the house!

I'd almost buy another and sell mine back to craigslist but I haven't even floated it yet. Weird but a "kayak" search didn't bring this up. Bookmarked and repped!!

Sorry it didn't come up. It just came up when I searched.

I was very excited about this deal but after calling three local stores and the website itself I found out this deal is not viable for two reasons:

1) Dick's website and Dick's retail are not the same company for some reason I don't understand and accordingly, the retails stores do not price-match the price on their own website.

2) If you decide to buy this off the website, the shipping charge will be around $200. The "free shipping" on orders over a certain amount does not apply to especially large items like kayaks.

In practice, you won't get this deal for under $450.

That being said, can any kayakers offer any comments on how this model would compare quality-wise to the popular one on amazon.com called the Emotion Glide?

p.s., monkeybiz: "kayak" didn't bring up this thread because you have to enter the plural "kayaks" instead (i don't know why, the SD search engine is picky perhaps)
I am sorry the deal isn't working for you. Where do you live? I wonder if it's regional, I have been in 3 Dicks this week (I travel a bit for work) and all 3 have this sale running.

As far as the emotion glide I have no idea. I ended up getting a fishing one myself. But a quick google search will tell you about all the different models, pluses and minuses, and I was able to find many reviews online for each model as well.

Has any one else had luck with this coupon? The last time that I used one of these 10 off 25 coupons in store I was told that they were counterfeit by the manager. He honored the coupon to keep customer loyalty but informed me that the one I was using was a fake and were all over the internet. I am not stating that this one is a fake, just curious as to how it was come by and if it is legit?

Think again about the seat folding/trunk route, remember kayaks are usually wet, dirty and muddy after a day on the water.
