Peak Deals

This year’s REI Labor Day sale includes a handful of Peak Deals that are 50% off their regular retail prices (or more). These items are only available in limited quantities with new styles added regularly, so be sure to act fast if you see something you want.

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.

The Labor Day sale is also a good time to stock up on discounted essentials like sunscreen, first-aid kits and water bottles and filters.

Additionally, if you’re looking to document your next backpacking trip in style, you can get a GoPro HERO8 camera for $100 off its regular price. It also ships free, but note that quantities are limited, so act fast if you’re interested in this deal.

Running & Cycling Deals

REI will have some decent price breaks on select bikes, like their Co-op Cycles ADV 3.1 bike for $1,188.93 — $210 off its regular price. One consideration, though, is that some bike brands (Cannondale, for example) only ship free to REI Co-op stores and can’t be delivered to your home.

If you’re stocking up on fall or winter apparel, now’s a good time to buy. You’ll get up to 70% off select jackets, shirts, pants and shoes for the family. 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.

  1. Make a $50 purchase at REI now through October 1st.
  2. Add a $20 lifetime membership to your cart.
  3. Your $20 bonus card will be added automatically to your order.
