Frequently Asked Questions
The Co-op Member Reward is the new name for your annual reward that gives us more flexibility to give you a member reward you know and love, every year based on your eligible full-price purchases. Our members make the co-op, and this new reward structure allows us to continue to prioritize our members without relying entirely on whether the co-op makes excess profit in any given year.
Co-op Member Reward notices are sent out each March. For example, the Co-op Member Reward you earn on purchases made in 2022 will be issued in March 2023 and expires in January 2025. Notices go out each March to active members who earned a Co-op Member Reward and/or REI Co-op Mastercard Rewards on eligible purchases during the previous year.
Only active REI Co-op members receive a Co-op Member Reward notice. To be an active member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases (purchases minus credits and returns) of at least $10 per year, unless you joined during that calendar year.
How do I earn a Co-op Member Reward?
All eligible REI merchandise purchases posted between 1/1–12/31 earn a Co-op Member Reward, reduced by any items returned for refund or credit. If your reward has already been calculated, then the reward is deducted from any returns.
REI Co-op Members receive their Total REI Rewards notice each March.
Here are some of the purchases you can’t earn a Co-op Member Reward on:
Sale items, discounted items, REI adventure travel, REI classes or day trips, sales tax, postage and the REI Co-op Membership fee. Service fees for labor, mounting and rentals do not count toward your Co-op Member Reward. The purchase of a gift card will not count toward your Co-op Member Reward, but a Co-op Member Reward can be earned by the gift card recipient when the gift card is redeemed.
Good news: Keep in mind that many of these REI items still let you earn 5% back* in rewards when you buy them with your REI Co-op Mastercard. That includes gear that’s on sale, REI adventure travel trips, used gear, REI gift cards, and even donations to the REI Cooperative Action Fund.
10% Co-op Member Reward is typical but not guaranteed.

You may request a retroactive Co-op Member Reward credit for eligible purchases online or by calling Senior Service at 1-800-426-4840; have your receipt handy as you’ll need it to provide information about your purchase.

Re/Supply is where members can shop and trade in used gear at REI all year. It’s a more sustainable and affordable way for members to purchase gear and apparel than buying new. Re/Supply includes gently used items that customers have either returned or traded-in and is ready for more life outside.
Members can participate in the following ways:
- Shopping the dedicated used gear section in most REI stores
- Shopping used gear online through the REI website
- Shopping our Re/Supply stores in Manhattan Beach, CA and Conshohocken, PA
- Trading in used gear in exchange for an REI gift card
Learn more about used gear at REI, shop used gear online, or begin a trade-in.
Re/Supply is an opportunity for REI members to have a positive impact on the outdoors by finding (or giving) new homes to gently used items. Buying a used item, instead of new, typically avoids CO2 emissions of 50% or more. This is based on REI Co-op’s estimate of preparing used gear for sale versus making new gear. Buying or trading-in gently used gear keeps your items out of landfills and gives you the opportunity to share gear with other members!
Re/Supply is 60 years of in-store Garage Sales reimagined. Access to used gear hasn't gone away, it's gotten better! Members can now shop and trade in used gear all year.
The Fund† was established to harness the collective power of our members and employees to build a more just and inclusive outdoor culture. REI is donating $5 for every membership purchased because we believe that time outside is a human right, and connection to nature is fundamental to the social, cultural, and physical health and well-being of all people.
Learn more about the Fund, including current grantees, recommending a grantee, donating, or additional information.
†The REI Cooperative Action Fund is a 501(c)(3) public charity which makes grants to nonprofits that promote justice, equity and belonging in the outdoors.
With each new membership purchased, the co-op will donate $5 to support REI Cooperative Action Fund. REI’s donation is separate from the membership fee and made on behalf of the co-op, not each individual new member.
New members will be invited to share which of the Fund's three grantmaking initiatives they prefer—connecting people outside, creating space outside or centering health outside. The Fund staff will consider member feedback in deciding how the REI donation is invested in nonprofits, but the Fund is not restricted in how it makes its investments.
Yes. As a co‑op, we put purpose before profits and act in the long-term interests of our members and community. As the needs of our members, community and business change, we may also change the benefits of lifetime membership.
