work for you?
Frequent and substantial REI sales seem to just keep coming this year, and you won't find us complaining one bit. The latest sale, dubbed the Gear Up Get Out Sale, starts Nov. 9 and runs through Nov. 19. It promises up to 30% off select items and categories, and REI Co-op members will also enjoy coupons for 20% off one full-price item and 20% off one REI Outlet item (online only). If you don't intend to shop in-store, you can use the code GEARUP2018 online to take advantage of both promos.
REI intends to keep their doors closed on Black Friday, so it's safe to say that this preemptive sale is a bit of a peace offering for the hardcore Black Friday enthusiasts. We dug through the REI sale catalog, which is a full 19 pages, to find some of the best offers they'll have in store for us.

A lifetime membership with REI is just $20, which is well worth it considering the potential savings. During this sale, members can take 20% off a full price item, and 20% off an REI Outlet item online. Depending on the cost of the item you choose, you could recoup the cost of your membership immediately. Furthermore, you can get a $20 Member Bonus Card if you make a $100 purchase at REI, buy a $20 lifetime membership, and then use the coupon code JOINREI at checkout. However, if you're just not ready to make the jump into an REI membership, don't worry. The Get Up Get Out sale itself is not restricted to members only.
Looking for more reasons to check out the sale? From Nov. 9 through Nov. 19, you also get free shipping on online orders of $50 or more. The free shipping minimum even includes skis and snowboards for a limited time. If you're a snowbird rearing for a new set of wings, now might be the time to order.
