What are the Perks of an REI Co-op Membership?

On the original deal form, we saw a lot of curiosity over what the REI membership actually includes. We broke down the full list of perks in this article, but here’s a quick recap:

  • Annual dividends each March — get 10% back what you spend
  • Access to REI Garage Sale events
  • Discounted REI adventures, classes and trip insurance

Is the REI Membership Worth It?

Although the REI Co-op membership comes with many perks, the stackable deals are one of the greatest benefits. You can save more than the value of the $20 membership fee on just one promo. And if you are scoring the membership for free, then even better.

Slickdealer VincentBlackShadow has been an REI member for 17 years and notes the membership fee has never changed. They say, “The deals at REI are most definitely there. It’s true: you can find a lot of the same gear for cheaper (Backcountry, Moosejaw, etc) but you won’t find a Hyperlight southwest 4400 at 20% off anywhere online. In my opinion: the REI membership is worth it if you do anything outdoors.”

I am a lifestyle and personal finance writer based in SoCal and have been a freelance writer since way before working remotely was the new norm. Being a wife and a mom to three young awesome kids, I have made it a regular habit to check out Slickdeals (even before joining the SD content team) to help fill up my pantry and gift closet for 50-70% off retail prices. As a family of five, we go through snacks, gifts, and toilet paper at an alarming rate, so I love a good deal and am also not afraid to dig through a thrift store to score incredible finds. When not writing about amazing deals to help people save and cool things on sale, I am taking care of my three girls, homeschooling, or stuck with my nose in a book. Sometimes, at the same time.
