A friend of mine recently let his laziness get the best of him when shopping for a new North Face TriClimate Jacket. In his impatience to get the shopping over with, he bought it for $200 when he clearly could’ve gotten it for less than $150, if only he knew where to shop. Keep reading to see where you can find cheap North Face jackets.

So you’re here clearly because you love North Face, and who doesn’t? There’s a reason North Face tops the charts as the most popular outerwear brand on the planet; their gear is effective, built to last, and good-looking. Here are a few rules that guarantee you will find the best price, period, for your new North Face jacket.

Use Google Shopping

If you know the exact style you want, there is no better way to cut through the jungle of web retail and get straight to the point. Simply go to Google Shopping (the tab right next to Google Images) and enter the name. For example, if you search ‘North Face ThermoBall Jacket’, dozens of store results will appear. The first store is usually the best price.

In the above example, Amazon has the lowest price for the men’s ThermoBall Jacket at $151. Make sure Brad’s Deals isn’t offering an exclusive price on the same jacket you’re looking for, because we won’t show up in Google Shopping.

The Best Stores for North Face Deals

To be sure, there are many reputable stores that offer good prices for North Face; however, over the past season we’ve noticed a handful in particular that really go above and beyond:

Unexpectedly, we saw Macy’s offer some of the best deals of the year for North Face. We regularly saw popular hoodies go for between $30-$40 with free shipping, and up to 50% off dozens of other styles. REI also rose to the top of the ranks to feature a wide selection of great North Face deals, along with their usual lineup of great, highly rated winter wear items. Backcountry’s sister site Steep & Cheap is also a fine place to look, since this smaller store is basically a clearance outlet for Backcountry, and you’re sure to find some of the lowest prices online for North Face.

These three stores were the best we saw of the year, but we can’t discount other excellent sites like Backcountry, Sun & Ski, Cabela’s, Moosejaw, and Zappos for a litany of other great North Face deals that come and go.

Find Great Deals at Sporting Goods Stores

We suggest hitting sporting goods stores like Finish Line, Sunny Sports, and Dick’s Sporting Goods for the occasional diamond in the rough. In spring and summer, we saw Finish Line sell the popular North Face ThermoBall Jacket for $49, which is almost unheard of. Since North Face isn’t their normal forte, sporting goods stores sometimes drop prices extremely low to catch the eyes of folks shopping for, say, a Nike shoe or a bike.

Buy Out-of-Season

A bit of sage shopping advice: Out-of-season items usually sell for less. It only makes sense. Retailers want to get rid of the old inventory to make room for new stuff. While it may make sense that November and December would offer the best sales on North Face, after-winter sales are often a goldmine. As an example, The North Face’s official website has an end-of-season clearance sale reserved for past-season styles. To find great deals, a little patience might be just the ticket.

Set Up Brad’s Deals Alerts

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could receive a notification on your phone alerting you to the best North Face prices on the web? Too good to be true? Think again. In 2017, Brad’s Deals came out with Brad’s Alerts, which pings you whenever your preferred brand or product goes live on our site. You can get constant updates of the best North Face deals from all across the retail world. All you have to do is visit our Deal Alerts page and enter the term ‘north face’ and you will get emails whenever one of our deal editors posts a North Face deal.
