First let’s get a little housekeeping item out of the way: This post is not sponsored. REI did not ask me to do a blog post, or compensate me for this post. I am an REI affiliate, which means if you buy something through an REI link on this page, I make some cash, green, bacon, bank, dead Presidents, coin. That money helps keep this blog up and running and keeps Bennie The Dog eating the cookies he is accustomed to. I don’t see the downside, but if you do – feel free to click off before making your REI purchases. Kloveyou!
You guys know my feelings on REI. I love it SO. MUCH. They are the Nordstrom of outdoor shopping. They really stand behind their products and take care of their customers.
First thing’s first – if you aren’t a member, go do that right now. The benefits of being a member are many. My favorites: tt costs $20 a lifetime membership, you can return anything for up to one year after you buy it, and you make a 10% refund on anything you buy. Fun fact: John told me that REI stood for Return Every Item when we first started dating. I believed him until I said it out loud to another person and realized he had been messing with me.
So on top of making money off all of your purchases and being able to make returns up to one year later, REI has an amazing sale this time of year. As a member, you can get 20% off one full priced item (sorry no GPS watches included in that). BUT – you can score a SWEET deal off the Garmin Forerunner 735xt.
I hope you are all having a great weekend and find some great things at the REI Sale!
