Join the REI member program - it's only $20 dollars for LIFE! I joined when it was only $15 for life, so act ASAP before the rate goes up! With this membership, you get MANY perks. The best of which being returning anything you buy, at ANY time, for ANY reason and getting a FULL refund of your purchase price. This is amazing. No other stores do this. You don't even need a receipt because they keep track of all of your purchases on their computer database, linked to your member card! PLUS, you get reward dollars for all the money you spend there. It can't be beat. If you buy any type of outdoor stuff, you NEED an REI membership!!!!!!
