REI Military Discount Policy Explained + More Ways to Save at REI

REI doesn’t offer a military discount or veteran discount, customer service representatives said. However, it does offer a few other ways that service members can save on outdoor gear. 

One way to save at REI is to check out the Official REI Coupons, Coupon Codes, Discounts & Rebates page on the REI website. This page details current coupons and discount codes. It also includes a link to the Deal of the Day and a link to shop REI Outlet. You can also find information about volume discounts, which save you about 10% when you buy multiples. The number of items required to receive a volume discount varies by product.

Another way to save money at REI is to become an REI Co-op member. A lifetime membership costs $20 and allows you to earn 10% back on most purchases. Membership also includes:

  • Members-only specials
  • Access to deep discounts on returned and gently used gear at REI’s in-store Garage Sales
  • Special pricing on Outdoor School classes offered by REI
