As professional online shoppers (seriously, it's a job), we would argue that the summer sale season is among the most underrated of the year. While it may not have the same ring to it as Black Friday or Boxing Day, you can still score big on top brands during the warmer months — especially if you know where to look.
Case in point: the massive online sale Sport Chek has on right now. The Canadian retailer is slashing prices on some of its biggest brands, including Helly Hansen, Nike, The North Face,Keen and Callaway, for a limited time as part of the Big Chek sale.
