REI Anniversary Sale May 2023: My Top Picks!

Last Updated: June 9, 2023

Every spring, REI has two great sales, first the Member Sale when your annual dividends come out and then the Anniversary Sale through Memorial Day weekend. I love this sale because it’s that extra chance to snag any camping and summer gear at a discount before the summer outdoor season really kicks off! I keep a running list of the latest REI 20% off coupons. But what are the best deals and things to buy during these semi-annual sales? Here are my top finds in the Anniversary sale this May (otherwise known as the Memorial Day summer gear up sale), which runs May 19-29, 2023.

REI Anniversary Sale: My Top Picks

REI Anniversary sale 2023 top picks!
  1. REI Swiftland Running Shirts – $27.89 (30% off). These are my favorite summer hiking and running shirts. When you need that shoulder sun coverage, but still super light and breathable!
  2. Hydroflask 12oz coffee tumber – $22 (25% off). I’m still eeking away with the older version of these coffee travel mugs. love them for tossing in a bag on the go!
  3. REI Bandana – $6.89 (30% off). Super cute prints for bandanas. Great for backpacking and summer adventures.
  4. REI Coop Sun Shirts – $34 (30% off). All REI brand clothing is 30% off. So this is a great time to scoop up summer or off-season essentials – like kids and grownup sun shirts, raincoats, puffs etc.
  5. Smartwool Socks – 25% off. These sales a great time to snag a new pair of Smartwool socks. 25% off for the whole family.
  6. ENO Doublenest Hammock – $63 (25% off). The best camping hammock out there. One of my favorite camping essentials for fun! And great for camping with toddlers and babies (hello nap station!)
  7. REI brand Merino base layers – $55.89 (30% off). I have a non-merino base layer from REI brand and it’s been good quality, so this merino one is def on my list! Reg price: $80.
  8. Co-op Cycles DRT 2.1 mountain bike – $1278 (20% off). REI’s house brand is making some seriously nice bikes these days. I’ve had my eye on some of their mountain bikes. Also REI kids bikes are on sale.
  9. Thule Roof box or bike rack – $639 with your code ANNIV23. The 20% off sales are a great time to get a big item like a bike rack, that you’ll be able to use all season! I can vouch for the Thule XTR T2 Pro bike rack and roof box. Reg price $800.
  10. Eureka Ignite 2-Burner Camp Stove – $93.69 (25% off). This one has been on my list for upping my car camping game from the Coleman single bottle-screw top burner. Faaancy! And the color is so good!

The REI sales are a great opportunity to save some money on checking off any items you need off your family camping checklist.
