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.

You must be an REI member to take advantage of the code, but REI membership is only $20 for a lifetime and worth doing for the reasons outlined below.
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. If your REI online spend comes to over $100, make sure you add a $20 lifetime membership to your cart. If you do then REI will automatically add a $20 bonus card to your order. The other benefits of becoming an REI member are:
- 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 Co-op sale happening right now through to 6th April.
- Influence the future of the company
- 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. Please note that during the coronavirus outbreak ALL REI‘s physical stores are closed, and events, classes, and adventures are all canceled until further notice.
- 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.
REI Membership Cost
Becoming an REI member only costs $20, and with that, your memberships will last for a lifetime.
