REI 50% off .83 staring 1/9

I just got off the phone with my local REI and I was told that they are starting a 50% off any item that ends in 83 cents. Items ending in 93 cents are also getting marked down (just not 50%). This includes items already on sale. I'm not sure if this will be reflected online though.

it will be reflected online. Anyone who's looking for the REI cruise UL 60, it'll be 50$

That could be some killer deals. I think they're out of the cruise 60 though, I can't find it. This will kill the resale of mine.

They will be close to $50 once the sale starts, assuming they don't sell out between now and then.

REI deal. When? on 01/07/2009 03:25:34 MST Print View

Is this deal available now? It didn't work for me on a .83 deal. The price stayed the same right through to checkout.

It says it starts 1/9 up there at the top. $50 is around what I paid for my Peak UL poles which I used on the WT3 trip in 08. Couldn't pass them up for that price.

I'd imagine the .83 will be 50 percent off retail price, not what is shown now. Those poles will be more like 70 bucks IMO. We shall see.

I just called them. The sale rep told me that it will be 50% off the existing price, not the original. WOW!

If it's anything like their other sales... on 01/07/2009 12:30:28 MST Print View

then it'll be a coupon you can use to take an EXTRA off the existing price. Notice most of the stuff on sale is REI inventory they are trying, literally, to sell out of. They ran out of the sub-kilo's when they reduced them below 50 percent, and now they'll do it to the remaining stuff.

Osprey Atmos's are on sale now (.83), so they'll be an additional 50% off too.

Looks like they'll unload everything that they, and every other outdoor manufacturer are re-designing for 2009.

Anyone Know What Time this sale becomes Effective Online? on 01/07/2009 17:12:37 MST Print View

Does this deal start at 12:01 am on 1/9 for the website or is it the morning of 1/9? Anyone have any info? I have a couple of sweet deals that I want to pounce on. I'm sure this stuff wont be lasting long with a sale like this.

Ok, that's really odd because I just spoke to a customer service rep today and she said the sale started tonight, at midnight, pacific time...
