All right frugal-friends, time to go on the hunt for something that you’ve buried somewhere for the winter months; your ice-skates. I realize that this is an odd request and that I’ve most likely raised a few eyebrows, but it’s for a good reason. For a limited time at Sportchek locations, they are offering totally free skate sharpening. I’m aware that the paid service isn’t the priciest thing, but it does add up after a while and hurts your fragile budget.
There’s really no catch to this deal; all you need to do is walk in, present your skates and they will be sharpened. Each customer gets a maximum of three skate sharpening per visit from August 1st to August 13th. Now, before I start to get comments about skate sharpening services in general, make sure to take a look at your skate and at what Blade Hollow option you need to get it sharpened at.
Huh? Don’t worry, let me explain: The basic cut for sharpening is what they call a 1/2″ which is the beginner setting and the common setting that they will sharpen your skates at if they aren’t told differently. Take a peek at the chart below to get a better gauge at what option you need–or, if you are confused right now, just let them do the basic cut to save you the headache.
