What about in stores? Or is it online only?

I think they usually mail out the physical coupon that you can use in stores so I assume that would have a start date on it that might be enforced. I don't know. I haven't gotten my coupon yet. I just saw that someone had posted the code so I figured I would try using it online as programmers are lazy so its likely when they add coupons to the system they only put in expiry dates.

I confirmed it today - you cannot use it in stores until the actual coupon shows up.

Thanks Greg...I wish I had realized this sooner...I have been sitting around waiting...anyway, it does work...I just ordered the Sawyer Squeeze for $47.89 (after the 20% coupon) using my dividend and a few other small items to get my order up to $50 for the free shipping.

(I saved $12.06 on the filter and $8.99 on shipping. Then after my dividends, I only spent $4 so I am a happy camper now... :) )

NeoAir XTherm is supposed to be release for sale by Thermarest on 4/1. REI will be able to sell it on or after that date.

Thanks. I have been wanting one of those VERY much (I hope that I will like the horizontal baffles, I know that I like the R-value).

REI Dividend Coupon on 03/18/2012 19:17:06 MDT Print View

Does anyone know if the dividend coupon is valid for bikes?

"a lot of personal information on a very public forum. guess not everyone's worried about privacy."

What's to be worried about? No one is putting the credit card numbers out there.

Typically no. Here's an example from an earlier such coupon

" Offer not valid on bikes, hard-shell boats, stand up paddleboards, any item with GPS technology, personal locator
beacons, skis, ski boots or ski bindings; snowboards, snowboard boots or snowboard bindings."

They do have bike sales through the year, a trick is that the sale is advertised from a certain date but the bikes are marked down just before you can can buy before the main rush of bargain hunters. I bought an REI-brand Novara bike last year using that method, and laid down a decent 5000 of hard hill mileage and no problems.

I feel like I made out fairly well. $20 dividend + 20% off of the Exped Schnozzel pumpbag + 20% off a Mt. Hardwear button up shirt in the outlet means everything for around $35 plus free shipping. I'm pretty excited to try out the pumpbag.

About our REI dividend. on 03/22/2012 22:45:17 MDT Print View

Has anyone ever wondered if they are actually getting what they are supposed to be getting? As in there is no way I can look up my purchases from last year. And since I am a member, I always tell them that I don't need my receipt. It saves paper, blah blah blah. It makes me wonder...is REI keeping my money?

"As in there is no way I can look up my purchases from last year. And since I am a member, I always tell them that I don't need my receipt."

You just answered your own question. Get the paper receipt and take it home for storage in a cigar box. Keep the cigar box full for about 18 months, and then discard. For one thing, that gives you the ability to look up old purchases.

Well technically you would be keeping your money as REI is a coop therefore owned by its membership. Beyond that REI doesnt have to give a 10% dividend. Technivally the dividend is determined by the board and could be increased or decreased at any time based on company performance.

I would bet that their computer system makes errors on how they classify sale and outket items where you dont get a discount but i dont believe they would ever intentionaly cheat you

REI obviously keeps a record of your purchases. I've seen a print out of everything I bought on a certain day when I returned something. One could potentially get a print-out of all purchases since becoming a member if sales staff were accommodating.
If you have an REI Visa, that's pretty easily accomplished via monthly statement.
