The holidays are fast approaching, so I want to share several new features we are introducing in time for the winter season.
To help take the guessing out of gift giving, the Holiday Gift Center on REI.com now allows you to search our products by several different categories, including outdoor activity, audience and price. Choosing the perfect gift for your hiker husband or stocking stuffers for your favorite furry friend has gotten easier.
Have you created a holiday wish list? If not, you may want to start one now. From December 1 to December 14, we will randomly "gift" one item from a lucky winners’ wish list to them. Create a wish list, then look for an email or announcement on REI’s Facebook and Twitter pages to see if you’ve won.
Beginning December 1, iPhone users can use a new REI app to search products and customer reviews by scanning a product’s bar code in any of our stores. Using the new app, you can also find your nearest REI store and share your favorite products with your friends on Facebook and Twitter.
Finally, REI members can trade in children’s snow gear previously purchased at REI for 20% off the purchase of new snow sports gear for your kids. Additional information and restrictions are available here.
