Black Friday is right around the corner, which means nearly innumerable retailers offering up items at some of the lowest prices of the year. Some stores have already started their sales, including Walmart, Macy’s and more. REI, however, famously doesn’t participate in Black Friday — instead it encourages staff and shoppers to enjoy time with family, preferably outdoors — but you can still get discounts at its annual Get Up Get Out Sale, the outdoor retailer’s Black Friday alternative.
REI’s Gear Up Get Out Sale runs now through Nov. 21 and offers discounts on thousands of items. Amon the offers: 30% off REI’s Co-op brand; up to 30% off camping and hiking gear, snow sports, and cold-weather apparel essentials; up to 20% off car racks; up to 50% off men’s and women’s clothing; up to 40% off cycling; 20% off REI Adventures; and much more.
Whether you’re getting ready to hit the slopes, stocking for next year’s camping season or looking for holiday gifts, there’s something for every kind of outdoorsy person. Combing through all the deals can be tiresome, which is why we did the hard work for you and rounded up 24 of our favorite deals below.
