REI Co-op Trade-in Program
REI announced a new REI trade-in program – trade-in your gently used gear for REI gift cards.
If you’re a REI co-op member . . .
1.) Look through your closet and find your items online.
2.) REI will send you a shipping label – you send your gear to them!
3.) You get an REI gift card! And your gear gets “back on the trail”
The REI trade-in website does say “trade-in values are not guaranteed.” It’s important your items are in good, working condition and can be found in their trade-in catalog.
Best items to trade in to REI :
- Jackets and pants
- Sleeping bags
- Hiking Boots
- Running Shoes
Items they aren’t accepting for REI trade-in program :
- Broken or damaged goods
- Products REI has never sold
- Items more than 6 years old
- Safety gear
- Shoes missing insoles or with heavy wear
If you check the REI trade-in page, they have estimated rates on what you might earn with the trade-in program. For example,
- Fleece jackets – $9 – 32 (lightly worn to excellent condition)
- Sleeping bags – $27 – $110
- Backpacking packs – $15 – $65
- Hiking boots $12-34
Trade-in values are not guaranteed.
