user13371 Posted December 18, 2011 Share Posted December 18, 2011 As an REI co-op member, most everything I buy earns a 10% dividend that I can apply against any other REI purchases. And if I apply for an REI Visa card, store purchases on that card earn an extra 5% back in dividends. Carrying that to the extreme, if I bought ALL of my gear at REI, everything would come to 15% off of retail, I think. But I don't know if I'm doing the math right, or if 15% is really a deep enough discount to offset the fact that pretty much everything at REI goes for MRSP before factoring in dividends. Just wondering if anyone else has juggled the numbers often enough to see if REI is really expensive or a price beater... Quote Link to comment
