A friend of mine is about to embark on an incredible cross-country biking trip all the way from Austin, TX to Anchorage, AK. For a trip like that, of course she needs all the best camping and outdoor gear she can find – but she has to stick to a budget (don’t we all?). So, with her needs in mind, I’ve been hunting around for this week’s best bargains on camping and outdoor gear, and here’s what I’ve found.
When I think of gearing up for the outdoors, REI is one of the first places that comes to mind. This Friday, May 16th they’re kicking off their Anniversary Sale, which will last for 10 days with savings in store and online. REI members can get an extra 20% off, so if you’re not already a member, now’s the time to join. It’s just $20 for a lifetime membership, and you’ll earn extra savings during all REI sales events, plus other membership perks.
If you’re looking for a big-ticket item like a tent or a multi-day pack, this sale is a great time to get it. You’ll get a discount, plus you’ll also get free shipping on any order of $50 or more.
If you’re into camping and the outdoor lifestyle, then you’ve certainly heard of Big Agnes. No, she’s not somebody’s large-and-in-charge great aunt, it’s one of the leading brands in tents, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, and tent accessories. Right now Campmor.com is offering up to 15% or more off all Big Agnes brand items during the Big Agnes sale, which lasts until Monday, May 19. This is your chance to finally replace that old, leaky, one-man tent with something bigger and better!
There’s nothing like gathering around the campfire for some scrumptious s’mores after a long day of hiking and enjoying the great outdoors. Of course, if your tent is ripped or sagging, your sleeping bag is stinky, and your hiking boots are giving you blisters, then the whole camping experience might not be so nice – so before you head out, you should make sure you have all the new equipment you need. You can use a coupon code at Campsaver.com to save 5% on any order, and if it’s your first order with them, you can sign up for Campsaver emails and get 10% off your order.
Wherever your outdoor adventures take you this summer, have fun and be safe!
