    REI Super Clearance Sale begins Friday the 9th

    Full disclosure....I've been a REI parttimer for nearly 10 years.

    Tomorrow our big Super Clearance Sale begins. This is where REI starts clearing out items by discounting items ending in an ".83" an additional 50%. So for example you find a Widget that is marked $19.83...take another 50% off and voila your price is now $9.92. Of course there is applicable sales tax plus any S&H charges if it so applies (usually when ordering online or having to order at Customer Service....note: if you live near an REI store...you can have that item shipped to the store for you to pick up for free).

    I tell everyone to start buying at both REI.com and REI-Outlet.com since inventory levels start dwindling as Friday wears on and especially through the weekend.

    Now please understand that you ain't gonna find the latest stuff available. Usually it's stuff that is a season or two (or more) old. And sometimes items may not be available in all sizes and colors and whatnot.

    If you have any ?'s about the sale, please holler.

    EDIT

    Forgot to add that I don't know what kind of bike stuff will be available, but do expect a decent selection of apparel and gear. Ya' just gotta act fast on it! Last year I scored a couple of jerseys and gloves and a jacket for my girl.

    From past experiences and from what I've seen instore tonight...don't expect bikes ending with an .83. I know some of our clearance bikes are ending in .93.

    Ya' never know though so it doesn't hurt to look......

    What is this shite? They changed the traditional good deals. I placed an order, then got the confirm and saw this -
    Some things will just never be as good as they were.


    BUMMER.
    AARGH.

    I may even have to seriously consider wether I would ever even buy a bike REI carries ever again due to that avater.

    "The Super Clearance has ended. You’ll still find plenty of great deals down below, but we are no longer taking an additional 50% off items with prices ending in .83."

    good news, bad news

    The bad turns to good:

    I filled my basket last night and returned for 50% off this morning. First it said the sale was over but after I refreshed a couple of times, it gave me the full 50% off!!!!!!

    the good turns to bad:
    I went to purchase my cart and then it said all but one of 8 items were no longer available.

    The good news:
    got a 7 speed Adams aluminum pull along kids bike for $83 !!!!

    Does this mean the Corporate Buyers did their job and predicted the sales volumes for this quarter correctly?

    Look out here comes STP - should be good in store clearance sales in the future. You going to the opening next week?

    I'll give you a shout on the horn if I make it out there today, I've been eyeing a couple of winter type items that may or may not go on sale. I think the manufacture may set the price. Last years Scott road bikes were looking nice
