Camping & Hiking Deals
REI is offering a wide range of discounts on tents, sleeping bags, footprints and other camping essentials this year. Of note is the Marmot Tungsten two-person tent with footprint for just $149.19, regularly $214. Additionally, the store’s camp furniture is up to 30% off.
Still, we suggest shopping around. Amazon, for example, typically has top-rated four-person tents for around $100. As always, compare product details and customer reviews to find something that suits your needs best. And don’t forget to check Slickdeals for the lowest prices.

Score a Free REI Co-op Membership
Not an REI Co-op member? Now’s a great time to join. If you spend $50 or more at REI now through October 1st, you’ll earn $20 toward your next purchase when you become a member (essentially making your membership free). Here’s how it works:
- Make a $50 purchase at REI now through October 1st.
- Add a $20 lifetime membership to your cart.
- Your $20 bonus card will be added automatically to your order.
As an REI Co-op member, you’ll enjoy lifetime access to exclusive perks, including 10% back on eligible full-price purchases in an annual dividend. Members also gain access to special offers and sales, as well as discounts on classes, events, rentals and bike and ski shop services.
These stackable deals are one of the greatest benefits of an REI membership, as you can save more than the $20 membership fee on just one promo. REI carries high-quality clothing and equipment, but these deals can bring those prices down to manageable levels.
Earn a Free $100 REI Gift Card
Finally, REI is offering a limited-time bonus to new credit card applicants. When you apply for the REI Co-op World Elite Mastercard, you’ll receive a $100 REI gift card when you make any purchase within 60 days of your approval. The card has no annual fee, and it offers special incentives, like 5% back at REI and 1% back on everyday purchases on top of your REI member dividend.
