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
Excellent! Thank you.
NM. My coupon does say starting on the 22nd. DOH!

I just used my REI member coupon online w/ no issues. MEM2013
Previous posters were correct. The coupon does not apply to GPS or PLB.
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 $4I picked up a Westcomb hoody made from Pertex Equilibrium. Mostly because there wasn't anything I really needed.

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 $10 shirt:( I don't recall this double discount before. Maybe just never paid attention.
Unless REI made changes to its system -- you can use the coupon for one item in the store -- AND use the code online as well.
Oh great!??? Now I'm gonna be spending the rest of today looking for THREE things REI sells that I want.Well, maybe not ... dividend is quite small ... divided three ways it might buy a pot grabber ... is three pot grabbers too many?
How about maps and guidebooks.
Just got an email for 20% off a full priced backcountry.com item.Code is SAVE20valid thru April 7
the issues of someone with all the gear he thinks he needs...
This past week I got a 20% off voucher from backcountrygear.com and campsaver and 10$ off from EMS.
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 haven't looked online but I picked up 2 Pat merino 1 shirts in my local store. They were on the clearance rack though
^ next time you see a deal like that, shoot me email :)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
