The only thing I can say is your REI habit is worse than mine.
Guilty as charged. I got it bad.
It feeds my kayak and "outdoorsman" habit, too.
I go bonkers every time I set foot in the place. Something to be said for being able to handle the toys and get decent service pre and post sale. The "no questions asked" return policy is how it should be everywhere. The dividend adds up quickly with a few big purchases. I do all of my gift shopping there, too - to boost the divi.
REI has killer prices at their stores End of the Month scratch and dent sales as well. Ex: 2-burner Coleman propane stove for $20. That's right $20. Not a dent on it. Just used a bit.
i got some great deals at their garage sales for returned/used items. a perfect condition tnf backpacking tent for $15- they even admitted it was mis-marked. the only problem is you have to get in line at 5am to be one of the first 20 or so into their back room- at least that's how it works at some of the chicago suburb locations.
