Sorry, not trying to make the company I work for look better. I used to shop at REI when I was a beginner. I have since learned that I overpaid for all my stuff. The worst part is that it isn't even a shop. It's a massive retail chain.
I edited my post while you were replying. On the specific binding you posted, she would save a little at REI on the rides, and spend a couple dollars more on the burtons. But the thing I like about them is you basically get a lifetime warranty on anything you buy. It sounds like she's worried about durability. If her bindings break even 3 years from now, REI will refund her money no questions asked.

I personally wouldn't pay full retail at REI, but their clearance prices are reasonable. Also, if you sign up for a $20 membership, you get 10% back at the end of the year. They'll send you 20% off coupons from time to time. And sometimes you'll get lucky at their scratch and dent sales.

Plus shipping, the Rides will come up to be more expensive actually.

I never knew about the lifetime warranty thing. That part is pretty damn awesome

I mean if she has them shipped to her local REI, they'll be a little cheaper.

The way they put it is you get a lifetime satisfaction guarantee. If you're not satisfied for any reason (reasonable or not) they'll refund your money. My office is right above an REI, so I'm in there quite a bit. The other day, I saw a guy return a 3-year old backpack that he put in the dryer and melted. They gave him a full refund even though it was his fault. I've heard people refer to them as Rental Equipment Incorporated because so many people abuse the return policy.

Yea, with a system like that, it's expected that they charge higher prices. Now excuse me while I go look for my 5 year old facemask that I don't use anymore so I can return it.

One other thing, if you get a membership, they keep everything you buy in their system. That way you can return it to any store in the country without a receipt. If you don't have a membership, you have to keep your receipt. Either way, it's a great policy

Also, you get a lot of people buying tents, sleeping bags, etc. for a one time camping trip, then returning it. They turn around and sell that stuff at scratch and dent sales. You can get basically new stuff up to 80% off.

Got these for my girl last season and she loves them. Evo is having a sale now, with an extra 25% off so this works out to be like $112 shipped.
