Who Sells REI Gift Cards?

To find out where you can purchase REI gift cards, we contacted a variety of stores. We found that REI gift cards are available at authorized resellers such as grocery stores and superstores, and most places don’t charge additional fees or shipping. Some places only carry e-gift cards, but others carry both physical and e-gift cards. We have the list of where to buy REI gift cards below.

Note: Some of the places we contacted told us availability varies by location, so if you’re looking to purchase a physical gift card in-store, it’s a good idea to call ahead and make sure it’s in stock.

Albertsons

Note: Albertsons operates multiple supermarket chains including Albertsons, Safeway, Vons, Pavilions, and a number of others. The brick-and-mortar stores we contacted all sold physical gift cards but didn’t necessarily carry REI gift cards. For example, we contacted an Albertsons store that said it stocks REI gift cards, but a nearby Safeway store said it does not.

If you choose to purchase a physical card from REI.com, the card should arrive within seven business days. If you choose an e-gift card, REI will send it to the recipient’s email within a few hours of purchase, or you can schedule a specific delivery date.
