How much does it cost to become an REI member?
How much does it cost to become an REI Co-op member? A one-time fee of $20 lets you become a lifetime member of the REI Co-op.
Can non members shop at REI?
Depending on the specific store, REI sells this gear as “used” or “used Garage Sale” gear. If the gear is associated with a garage sale, you need to be a member to buy it. Some smaller REI stores don’t have a big used section, and in those cases, often the used/returned gear can be purchased without being a member.
How does REI Membership work?
The REI Co-op has a modest price of admission: A lifetime membership is just $20. And as long as you spend at least $10 a year on qualifying purchases, you’ll earn 10 percent back in annual dividends, plus you’ll get access to member-only discounts during special in-store events, and in some cases, free shipping.
How do I get a free REI Membership?
Spend $50+ at REI and buy an REI Membership to get a free $20 bonus card. Spend $50 or more at REI and you can add a Lifetime REI Co-op Membership to your cart for a free $20 Bonus Card. It’s like getting the REI Membership for free.
Is REI worth the price?
If you plan on spending more than two hundred dollars and plan to spend more than a couple nights in the outdoors in the coming years, then yes, it’s worth it – in fact, it’s already paid for itself at that point. The REI membership cost is negligible, but the benefits are very substantive.
Can I use someone else’s REI membership?
Can I give my membership to someone else? Your member number is issued only in your name. Only you can redeem your co-op member reward, member dividend, and REI Mastercard rewards, and only you can vote for the REI board of directors. Your membership cannot be transferred to someone else.
Is REI really a coop?
U.S. Recreational Equipment, Inc., commonly known as REI, is an American retail and outdoor recreation services corporation. It is organized as a consumers’ co-operative. REI sells sporting goods, camping gear, travel equipment, and clothing.
Is REI a good brand?
As we said, affordability is one of REI Co-Op’s best selling points. To be sure, it’s pricier than the sort of bargain-basement off-brand gear you might find at, say, Walmart, but often less than more recognizable brands. However, the quality is surprisingly on-par or better than many of those brands.
What does an REI membership get you?
REI members receive 10% off of almost everything in the store automatically (paid back in an annual dividend), access to members-only deals, and receive discounts on REI classes, events, and adventures. The $20 one-time fee quickly pays for itself, especially if you or someone in your family plan to buy from REI.
How do I use my REI membership online?

Can you return clearance items to REI?
@Philreedshikes is right – closeout items are ones we will no longer carry (once we’ve sold through our current inventory) and are covered by our 100% satisfaction guarantee and 1 year return policy. In contrast, Used Gear has a 30 day return policy. Hope this helps!
