What will you buy with your REI Dividend? on 02/24/2006 21:24:42 MST Print View

Including the 20% off coupon. I'm already shopping, but haven't made a final decision yet.

I'm aimin' at getting the "tilley airflo hat" which I'm pretty sure is the same thing as the LTM6. They want the suggested retail price of $69, but with dividend and 20% off coupon, I should get a significantly discounted price.

Water shoes - Summer is near on 02/24/2006 22:12:05 MST Print View

Merrell Waterpro Multi-Sport Water Shoes. Already quite a deal at $49.93 before 20% discount. I will use these on river hikes throughout the Colorado Plateau this coming summer.

Eric Lavering: It seems to me that the Tilley Airflo is not available on REI-Outlet, in which case the 20% coupon will not apply. Am I mistaken?

There's about to be 2 different 20% coupons on 02/24/2006 22:15:45 MST Print View

The one for the Outlet site is available now. The one for the regular site will be eligible to REI members starting next week.

Thank you for clarifying. I wasn't aware of a second discount, and I now look forward to it.

Yeah, I was talking about the 20% coupon that comes in the mail with your dividend.

You can use your dividend along with a 20% coupon as follows:

REI.com - memb26 (one item)
REI outlet - GM224 (one item)

I believe the codes are reusable, meaning if you are buying multiple items, just check out/pay individually each time.

Separately, there should also be another 20% off coupon in the mail.

Eric,

Check out binnacle.com for Tilley hats. They've got the lowest prices that I've come across.

About the only thing that I get at REI anymore is "Bear Valley Pemmican Bars". This is the only source for them in the Dallas Area. Whole Foods has the meal packs, but not the Fruit & Nut Bars.

I know that they look like fruit cake, but I like the way they energize me on the trail. Just have to remember to drink plenty of agua.

Regarding REI in general, any store that shows me a 4-pound tent or a 3-pound sleeping bag and tells me that it is "ultralight" is just out of touch with the way I provision.

I wish I could use my dividend at other stores :] I ended up going with the Marmot Ion in the Outlet store. From MSRP $100 to practically "free"... just took a little patience.

fyi: Montbell just dropped the $ on their UL Wind Jacket down to $79. I went ahead and ordered one, REI will happily take the yellow one back.

This year my list for spending the dividend includes:
REI Taped Mittens
Another National Geographic Topo! state map
Maybe a sleeping bag.

I pile up dividend $ with my REI Visa card. As a Scoutmaster I can still find things that are useful as loaner gear and car camping.

Good choice on the Taped Mittens. I had to pay for my pair and am not disappointed at all with them (though I could wish that they were a bit lighter).

"I wish I could use my dividend at other stores"

You can use your dividend at other stores, you just have to wait until you can cash it.

I found out the 20% discount doesn't work on the REI-Outlet because all of those items are on sale, ending with a 3 or 9 cent value.

I got the Brunton Optimus stove (used the 20% discount), an REI Ultralight rain jacket, a couple Trails Illustrated maps to add to my collection and 4 pair of smartwool hiking socks.

"Here's the code for the outlet site, it expires on 3/3: GM224"

Thanks Jeff. It appears REI has contradictiong statements by stating in their list of Coupon Exclusions... "Offer not valid on REI-OUTLET items or on REI Adventures trips."
