Five New Benefits to REI Memberships

The $30 REI Membership never expires. The new improved version offers new added benefits, upgraded existing ones, and offer families more ways to grow outside.

  1. Free Standard Shipping
  2. Exclusive Member Collection: Curated products, limited brand collaborations, and special offers built just for members.
  3. 20% off Shop Services: Did you know Ski Moms can get a free machine wax for thier skis at REI? Yep, members save 20% on bike & snow shop services, plus get some freebies too. Fully certified and highly trained technicians can service your mountain, road, hybrid or e-bike, plus give friendly advice. Typically they can get your bike back to you on the spot for smaller repairs or in a few days for a more detailed service. Plus members get free flat-tire repair (labor only; parts not included).
  4. Earn Member Rewards: Members get 10% back on eligible purchases. This new reward structure allows REI to continue to prioritize members without relying entirely on whether the co-op makes excess profit in any given year.
  5. Buy and Trade in Used Gear: Members can trade in used gear for REI gift cards. Look through your closet, then find your items online. Next, list your item. REI will send you a shipping label, you send your gear. You get an REI gift card, and your gear gets back on the trail. Find out more here.
