Q. What should I do if I forget my gift registry password?
A. Remember, your gift registry password is the same as the password you created for REI.com. If you remember that one, you’re good to go! Can’t remember that password? No worries—we can send you a reminder.
Q. If I already have an REI.com Account, do I need to create another password for REI Gift Registry?
A. No, you can log in with the e-mail address/username and password you already created to access Your Account on REI.com.
Q. What does it mean when a product is available "in-store only"?
A. This means that the item is not available for purchase online, but may be available at an REI store. On any product page, click the “find in store” button to check an item's availability.
Q. Can I create a gift registry over the phone or in the store?
A. Yes. Just call 1-800-426-4840 or visit the customer service desk at any REI retail store nationwide and we'll help you create a registry you'll love.
Q. Can I open a gift registry for someone else?
A. Of course! Feel free to create a registry for a son, daughter, spouse, or anyone you know who has a special event on the horizon such as a birthday or anniversary.
Q. As a member who set up a gift registry, do the purchases from that registry go toward my dividend, or the purchaser’s?
A. Dividend credit is earned by the purchaser, unless the member purchasing the item requests to have them credited to the registrant’s membership at the time of purchase. This can be done by phone or by emailing Member Services.
Q. Should I avoid choosing seasonal or clearance items for my registry?
A. If your event is months away, we suggest you avoid choosing seasonal or clearance items that may not be in stock in the future.
Q. Why can't I find the "Add to Registry" links to click on product pages?
A. You must be logged in to your REI Online account before the “Add to Registry” links will appear on product pages.

What’s the difference between the REI Gift Registry and a Wish List?
A Gift Registry is generally tied to a date-specific event such as a wedding or birthday. We track items your friends and family purchase from the registry. A Wish List, on the other hand, is designed for your personal use. Because your friends or family can’t find your wish list through the REI website, it’s up to you to share it with them. Learn More about Wish Lists.
Is gift boxing available for Gift Registry items?
Yes. At Checkout, just indicate that you are sending items as gifts. You'll then be able to choose among several gift-delivery options, including gift boxing and adding a personalized note.
