2011 REI Anniversary Sale – 20% Off Coupon Coming Soon!

It ’tis official…

This year’s REI Anniversary Sale starts May 20th and runs through May 30th.

It is one of the most anticipated sales in the outdoor industry, and comes at the perfect time to gear up for 3 season adventures!

Along with general discounts of up to 30% on top-brand gear and clothing, and FREE shipping… this sale also features the gold standard of outdoor gear discounts, the 20% off coupon.

That member discount will be available on the 20th and is applied at checkout, if they use a “code” I will post here as soon as it is available.

2011 Coupon Code now available! It is posted on REI’s website HERE

I’ve got my eyes set on a new daypack. I’ve determined I want more of a suspension system for even my short trips, at least something with a hip belt. Both of my current daypacks lack them, and they fatigue my shoulders, which I find annoying.

A quick look at the REI website shows the following products are their current top sellers.


With expandable memory, this navigational workhorse guides you to your destination with a crisp, sunlight-readable color display.

SiRFstar III chipset, fast USB connectivity, precise barometric sensor, accuracy to 10 feet in North America, dedicated geocaching mode…

Regularly $219.95. 20% off that would be pretty nice. →

Vibram Five Fingers

Designed specifically for natural running, a near-barefoot experience and a custom, snug fit.

Not one, but THREE different versions of these running shoes made the top 10 list. The Komodo Sport, the Bikila, and the TrekSport.

Someday, I will have to try these out – clearly, some folks find them to be an improvement over traditional shoes.

They cost about $100. →

REI Half Dome 2 Plus Tent

The extended size version of the popular Half Dome 2 tent. Want a little extra room? This tent is made just for you.

The REI Half Dome Tent has been getting heaps of praise since it was introduced. Gear of the Year awards from Outsider Magazine, Editor’s Choice Awards from Backpacker Magazine, etc etc. This is a newer, slightly roomier version of the classic.

At $199 it is hard to fathom a better tent for the price. →

Not a member? You don’t need to be to take advantage of the general sale, but if you want to get your hands on that coupon, it is pretty easy to become one, and comes with benefits beyond just this coupon – like the yearly dividend, where you get refunded approximately 10% of eligible purchases. And it only costs $20 for a lifetime! I guarantee, if you do any amount of gear shopping online, you will make that $20 back in one season.
