REI Labor Day Sale 2019

At REI's annual Labor Day sale, online shoppers can save up to 40% on select items sitewide. Even better, the store is offering a coupon for an extra 20% off any one REI Outlet item of your choice. Use promo code LABORDAY19 on select outlet products with prices ending in $0.73. Just keep in mind that there are several exclusions, mostly on big-ticket items like bicycles, paddleboards, hard-shell boats and skis.

Plus, you can use the coupon code REICLASS19 to score 20% off any single REI day tour, class or event. Some of those options can get fairly expensive, so 20% off represents a fair chunk of change. REI is also offering $1,000 off an Andean adventure and a $600 discount on a multisport outing to the San Juan Islands. You can check out the full details here.

New REI email subscribers will also receive a coupon for 15% off one full-price REI brand or Novara item (not including bikes). Additionally, most products are eligible for online ordering with same-day in-store pickup, or you can enjoy free shipping on orders of $50 or more.

If there's no REI near you or you just don't want to shell out for a membership, you still have options. Slickdealer Icyj says, "Most other outdoor retailers will match the 20% off" and recommends picking "the one without tax and with highest $$$ back for yourself. Backcountry, Moosejaw, etc."

User silvery79 also observed that "Amazon tends to drop their prices to match what the REI price will be after the coupon."

The Best Deals From the REI Labor Day Sale Catalog

Camping Deals

REI Labor Day Sale This year's camping deals include a wide range of discounts on tents, sleeping bags, footprints and other outdoor essentials. Of note is the REI Co-Op Dome 2, which is only $68.99. Plus, the store's camp furniture is up to 30% off.

Still, we suggest you shop around. Amazon typically has top-rated four-person tents for around $50 to $100 (it even has this nine-person tent with two queen-size airbeds for less than $150). 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.

Hiking, Climbing & Backpacking Deals

REI Labor Day Sale REI offers a variety of brands to choose from when it comes to backpacking gear, but Slickdealer tcope highly recommends Osprey packs. The user notes that the brand "just knows how to make a good, useful pack" and adds that they come with "lifetime free repairs." Just be sure to check other retailers once the sale goes live.

We've seen the store's $120 Osprey backpacks sell for $90 to $100 on Amazon and eBags, while Slickdealer Npetrie says you'll "want to keep an eye on Sierra Trading Post" backpack deals, as well.

Cycling Deals

REI Labor Day Sale REI will have some decent price breaks on its full-price 2019 Cannondale bikes, like the Topstone Disc SE 105 for $1,400. One consideration, though, is that Cannondale bikes only ship free to REI Co-op stores and can't be delivered to your home.

REI Labor Day Sale

Looking for a new rack or roof box? Then this event's for you. According to Slickdealer MedfordMan, REI sales are usually "the best time to get a Thule or Yakima roof cargo box."

Slickdealer pkopkopko adds, "Yakima is a pretty decent brand for accessories" and says, "Thule and Yakima are what Pepsi and Coca-Cola are to one another. One isn't necessarily better than the other in my opinion."

Clothing & Footwear Deals

REI Labor Day Sale If you're stocking up on fall or winter apparel, now is a good time to buy. You'll get 25% to 30% off select jackets, shoes, socks and base layers. Just keep in mind that stores like 6PM and Gander Outdoors are known to offer footwear with prices competitive to that of REI, even with the sale.

Additionally, Mountain Steals has a history of lowering its prices on the same clothing and footwear brands featured in REI's Labor Day Sale. Bottom line: Shop around before you decide to buy.

Score a Free REI Co-op Membership

REI Membership Not an REI Co-op member? Now's a great time to join. If you spend $100 or more at REI now through August 29th, you'll earn $20 toward your next purchase when you become a member (essentially making your membership free). Here's how it works:

  1. Make a $100 purchase at REI now through August 29th.
  2. Add a $20 lifetime membership to your cart.
  3. 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.
