While a lot of retailers were working overtime this past week on one of the biggest shopping holidays of the year, REI took a strong stand and #OptedOut of the madness. The company’s strong belief in getting people to go outside and value those precious moments has motivated it to let its 2,000 employees take Thanksgiving Thursday and Black Friday off for the past four years. However, REI still has some incredible Cyber Week deals to offer this holiday season.
At REI, Cyber Monday included discounts up to 65 percent off and Cyber Week deals are still going strong, with discounts lasting up until this weekend. If you’ve been meaning to follow REI’s mission and hit the outdoors, now is the perfect time to save big on outdoor gear, jackets, backpacks, and more. You can also save an extra 25 percent off one REI Outlet item using the coupon code: 25OUTLET.
REI is also known for offering classes, outings, and events that promote living an enriched life while meeting new people. The classes include venturing out on hikes, campouts, and more. If you book a class between now and December 2, you can save 30 percent off using the coupon code OUTSIDE30.
