Re: How can I find my member number from long ago?

Here’s a serious challenge for you: I had a very active membership and purchased several items to help me maintain a certain level of comfort in my work situation. Is it possible to retrieve my membership in the co-op from my time as a commissioned officer at Fort Lewis in 1981? At that time I was living in Tacoma, WA.

Thanks for reaching out!

We should be able to track down your member number and information as a membership with our co-op is for life. In order to locate your member number and update your info you'll need to reach out to our membership team at or call our sales and customer service team at 1-800-426-4840. Additionally, you could speak with one of our customer service specialists at your local REI store as well.

Hopefully this helps and thanks for being a member of our co-op!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.

Not a big deal, but I remember buying an REI tent back in '80 or '81 and I think I had to become a member to do this. But it shows me as joining in '92 - and I don't remember joining then.
