Spring is here, and if you're anything like me you'll be ready to get out and become one with nature again. While I don't travel across the US to see the great outdoors, I like to go on nature walks and explore new parks whenever I can. And I can't go without the right equipment. For me the essential piece of kit is a durable backpack, but for you it could be anything.
If you're a member of, it's a good time to stock up on those essentials. From now until March 28 using the code MEMBER20, you'll get 20% off. There's a similar offer running at until March 31: Using offer code BEARHUG will get you 20% off.
Which deal is the best? It depends. If you already have a membership at REI, then the answer is clear. You'll not only get 20% off one full-price item, but also an extra 20% one REI outlet item. The downside is that in order to become a member, you have to pay a one-time $30 fee for a lifetime membership.
Moosejaw, on the other hand, has free membership, but you'll only get one full-price item for 20% off. I'd suggest you choose Moosejaw if you won't want to spend money on a $30 membership. But if you regularly buy outdoor gear, you'll see a bigger discount at REI in the long run when you factor in outlet discounts.
