To help you celebrate life’s big moments with gifts of gear rather than pots, pans and onesies, REI Co-op completely revamped its registry experience. Powered by MyRegistry.com, the new platform offers tools for you to manage your wish lists and create gift registries for all major milestones.
“As more and more people are prioritizing experiences, our goal is to make it easy for people to register for gifts that can get them outside,” says Curtis Kopf, REI’s chief digital officer. “Whether you’re welcoming a new baby or embarking on a new life together, REI outfits for a lifetime in the outdoors.”
REI’s new registry experience connects you to non-traditional gifts for an outdoor life. This includes top-quality gear for biking, climbing, camping, hiking and more. The best part? It even includes REI Adventures. So you could put that Kilimanjaro trip you have been eyeing on your registry for your 30th birthday party.
A registry with REI and MyRegistry.com comes with benefits, including the ability to use your cell phone to scan items in an REI store and add them directly to your registry. You can view product recommendations and receive alerts when inventory is low or an item is back in stock. Your registry guests can also see inventory levels, allowing them to prioritize their gift purchases.
And should your full registry list not be fulfilled on the date, you get 10 percent off any unpurchased items on a registry up to one year after the event date. Registry gifts can be purchased online, over the phone or at any REI store, while most orders over $50 ship free.
