Does Academy Have Layaway? Answered (+ Other Financing Options)

Academy Sports + Outdoors does not offer a layaway program, a customer service manager told us. Instead, customers can apply for an Academy credit card to finance their purchase. The Academy credit card includes free shipping for online purchases and 5% off online and in-store purchases, as well as 15% off your first purchase of more than $15 with the card.

For savings opportunities, you can join Academy Sports + Outdoors’ email list (click “Sign Up For More Deals” at the bottom of the page). Click “Sign Up For More Deals” at the bottom of the homepage and enter a valid email address and ZIP code to get weekly ads straight to your inbox.

In stores, you can also look for red “Hot Deal” tags and blue “Price Drop” tags to find items that are discounted. You can also find in-store clearance racks.
