Yippy, it is REI dividend time. I received my dividend in the mail yesterday and am slightly embarrassed by how HUGE it is meaning I spent way too much at REI last year. And with the dividend comes the highly coveted 20% off one full-priced item coupon and a special 20% off an outlet item coupon too.
If you don’t know what I am talking about, you better look into REI’s membership program. It costs $20 for a lifetime membership, and you get ~10% back on full-priced purchases and several member only coupons through out the year.
Strategically using the member’s only coupons is one of the best ways to save big on outdoor and travel gear. Now’s a great time to pick up a big item like a new tent or sleeping bag or even a high-quality travel skirt or travel dress for your summer adventures. I am going to be using my coupon for a new sleeping pad since my old pad has too many leaks and I end up sleeping on the ground by morning.
What will you pick up with your REI dividend this year?
