REI Membership Benefits: Discounts, Exclusive Gear, Dividends

We have been REI members for years, and love that REI is a cooperative that invests in causes that we care so much about.

The benefits of becoming an REI member 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!

  • 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 Coupon 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.
