REI Membership Benefits Including Huge Co-Op Sale Discounts

All opinions are our own and never influenced by brands. If you buy through links on this page, we may earn a small commission. Here's our process.

REI’s yearly Co-op Sale is here which means now is the best time to buy the gear we’ve rated highly over the last year; including gear for trail running, hiking, fastpacking, backpacking, and camping gear deals just for you.


So, if you’ve been waiting for the right time to buy some new trail gear, now is your chance, but be fast because Member Rewards Sales like the REI Co-op sale ends soon and product stock may not last until the end of the sale.

In a nutshell, the REI Member Moment sale will get you 20% off eligible gear at the REI store (not just REI branded gear) and an extra 20% off one REI Outlet item.

Keep reading to learn all about the REI Membership benefits and what it means to become an REI Member, including access to the REI Co-op Sale.

If you can’t find something already included in the sale, you can still save 20% on one full-priced item and an extra 20% on one REI Outlet item, by using coupon code MEMBER20 at checkout!

You must be an REI member to take advantage of the code, but REI membership is only $30 for a lifetime and worth doing for the reasons outlined below.

REI members can follow these simple steps to save 20%:

  • Step 1 – Put an eligible full-price item and/or one REI Outlet item in your cart. Exclusions apply. See terms & conditions here.
  • Step 2 – Enter coupon code MEMBER20 in the Review and Pay section of checkout to get your discount through the end of the sale.
  • Step 3 – Enjoy your new gear!

REI Membership Benefits: Discounts, Exclusive Gear, Dividends

We have been REI members since moving to the USA, and love that REI is a co-operative that invests in causes that we care so much about. The benefits of becoming an REI member for only $20 include:

  • Every year you’ll receive a member dividend of 10% back on what you spend – You’ll see these returns in spring every year. This is effectively an extra 10% off every purchase.
  • Free standard shipping on all online orders
  • Gain access to member’s only exclusive gear – Every now and then you’ll see exclusive gear pop up that’s only available for purchase by REI members.
  • Gain access to exclusive member-only events and sales – like the Member Moment sale in March/April.
  • Influence the future of the company
  • Shop and trade in used gear for REI store credits
  • Play, learn and travel for less – When you become an REI member you’ll get special pricing on REI Outdoor School classes and events, rentals, bike and ski shop services, and REI Adventures trips.
  • Be part of a welcoming community – If you’re just getting into the outdoor scene then you’re lucky because newbies and hardcore adventurers alike belong to the REI co-op. Within the REI community, you can advance your skills, make friends, gear up and get outdoors.
  • Support causes you care about – Each year, the REI co-op invests in the work of nonprofit partners who help hundreds of organizations improve outdoor access for all.
