REI Coupon? on 03/18/2013 10:02:23 MDT Print View

My dividend is posted. I heard they may not have the typical 20% off member coupon this year. Can anyone confirm?

I was told by an online chat person that the 20% will come out on 3/22

coupon works for me too! on 03/21/2013 21:39:27 MDT Print View

Previous posters were correct. The coupon does not apply to GPS or PLB.

Sooooo...suggestions? on 03/22/2013 07:16:41 MDT Print View

I have my 20% coupon...now what do I use it on? I'm building an UL kit and have most of the big ticket things already. Should I buy that Houdini finally (I can find it cheaper than 20% from REI with a coupon)? Should I upgrade my basic synthetic sleeping bag (light enough for my UL kit for now) to a swanky down option (I was going to hold out and get a quilt at some point). Should I upgrade my cheapy down hoody to a true UL down coat?

The only things I need from REI right now are little things...like platys, a SAK Classic and stakes.

Ideas?

You can get platys at STP right now for under $4

I picked up a Westcomb hoody made from Pertex Equilibrium. Mostly because there wasn't anything I really needed.

20% off TWO items on 03/23/2013 20:26:43 MDT Print View

I didn't realize the coupon is 20% off a regularly priced item AND 20% off a REI-Outlet item. I wasted the Outlet discount on a $10 shirt:( I don't recall this double discount before. Maybe just never paid attention.

20% off THREE items on 03/23/2013 21:45:46 MDT Print View

Unless REI made changes to its system -- you can use the coupon for one item in the store -- AND use the code online as well.

Oh great!??? Now I'm gonna be spending the rest of today looking for THREE things REI sells that I want.

Well, maybe not ... dividend is quite small ... divided three ways it might buy a pot grabber ... is three pot grabbers too many?

the backcountry code won't work for Patagonia :( REI doesn't have the Merino 1 shirts :( campsaver doesn't have the merino 1 either :(

that's three sad faces for anyone counting

Feels silly to use a 20% coupon on some socks or a t-shirt or other sub $20 item, but that's about all REI carries that I'm interested in anymore...

I ended up using my REI 20% coupon and part of dividend on a pair of the new Brooks Grit 2's, if I like them I'll blow the rest of my dividend on another pair

I bought a shirt in store and used 20% off, and just entered the code online at REI.com and it is accepting the 20% off as well...

So it does appear to work for three items assuming you have a store you can visit that has something you want in stock.

REI Visa on 03/28/2013 13:36:56 MDT Print View

Not sure if everyone is aware that the REI Visa generates dividends when you use it for any purchase throughout the year, not just those at REI. I use it as a regular credit card all year, pay off the balance each month, and generated a $850 dividend last year and $773 this year. Free money in my opinion. Most of my purchases go to cottage companies these days but REI gets my clothes/shoes/small items business that are most likely to be returned or need returned due to failure.

Re: 15% REI (Huntington Beach) on 03/29/2013 16:46:31 MDT Print View

Craig, Ben, and other So Cal guys, if you are heading to the 714/beach this summer
REI has this "locals" coupon that is always on, the expiration date auto-renews every month. You can't use it online. HB store only. and it's 15% off, but it's on year round.

Most of the clerks get confused but the store manager will honor it.

so in case you miss the 20% discount... or already used it it once, 15% off is a close cousin.

Re: Re: Re: 15% REI (Huntington Beach) on 03/31/2013 23:42:31 MDT Print View

Justin,
yea even the employees at the register get confused by that coupon, so expect escalation to a manager. The store boss said this was a promo when the store opened. I showed her that the coupon is still running, so is it valid? Manager squirmed then approved it. I think they don't want to encourage it, because then basically everything in the store, any time, is 15% off, and that would be suspicious for business.

so they will give you a hard time, even treat you like the printed coupon is a forgery. I had to show the manager the website on my phone. Then she said OK fine.

Multi-Multi-Multi Use on 04/01/2013 07:19:58 MDT Print View

I have now successfully used my in-store 20% off 3 times. I don't think they scan anything, the cashier simply just applies a 20% line discount to the most expensive eligible item. This makes me pretty happy and also sad for the company, but oh well. And no, I haven't been trying to con the cashiers, but both the second and third time I've bought something from the store last week they didn't even ask me about it, just rang it through. I even got an additional 5% off my new watch cause I'm a nice customer (I think the girl was having a rough day). So having good luck lately. If you don't have any moral dilemmas to deal with, just play dumb and you might get another free discount.

Assuming the online coupon will only work once for REI.com and REI-Outlet.
