During this time of the year, many consumers gear up for their favorite sports and other outdoor activities. People are spending more time outside doing recreational activities and traveling across the country. However, when it comes to getting presents for birthdays or other celebrations during this time of the year, you don’t have to break the bank to find the best gifts for those that you care about. Here are some ways you can save money when buying presents for sports fans.

Use Coupons
When consumers think of coupons, groceries usually come to mind. However, plenty of retail stores offer coupons via email. For example, stores like Kohl’s often send out emails that could save consumers upwards of 30% off their purchase. Sports Authority and Dick’s Sporting Goods also offer coupons via email and snail mail. Online coupons, like those available at discountrue.com, can help you find the perfect gift for the WWE enthusiast as well. There are many different ways to save when shopping online.

Groupon Goods
This is a great way to save on presents for the sports fan in your life. From jerseys to blankets, to glassware and grilling tools, you can find almost anything boasting a sports logo on Groupon Goods. Many of these goods can be customized with the logo of his or her favorite sports team. If you sign up for Groupon emails, the company often has special codes that can save you an additional 20%, or more, off of your purchase. Groupon helps many people save tons of money on goods and services every day. If you’ve never tried it, it’s definitely worth a shot. You might save more than you ever thought was possible.

Discounts on Games
If you have a group of people that need gifts, and who happen to be big sports fans, consider getting group discounts to the next game. Some stadiums offer discounts for groups of 10 or more. Plus, everyone will be able to sit together, which makes for a great time at any sporting event. Sports events can be expensive, so when you can save money, it’s totally worth it. Plus, you’ll have more cash for hot dogs and popcorns for everyone in your party.

If you’re not looking for group rates, StubHub is a great way to get less expensive tickets to any sporting event. Typically, season ticket holders will use StubHub to sell tickets to games they do not want to attend or cannot attend due to other events. Depending on the sporting event, ticket prices may fall lower than face value. One thing to note though, is that you may have to wait for the tickets to arrive, to then gift them.

Sports fans are a great group to shop for as many will love just about any unique item. Finding gifts for anyone on your list can be a little tricky, but with some patience and valuable resources, the perfect gift is within reach.
