vote4pedro 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.

Leo 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.

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.

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.

Basically, you will end up paying more at REI because of the shipping.

Sorry Littlefoot, don't mean to impede on your suggestions, but REI is more expensive than other places 90% of the time. Unless you pick it up from their store. Then you don't have to pay shipping. Even then, most of their stuff is still overpriced.
EDIT: just read the rest of your post. I had said she could have them delivered to her local store to avoid shipping. But I just saw you said that.

As far as prices go, their clearance prices are pretty reasonable. They're in line with most other online clearance prices. Plus you get a lifetime return policy. So if her bindings break, she can pick up another pair for free. Even after they're out of warranty. That's probably not the case with most other websites.

Here are a few good deals:
Ride VXn Snowboard Bindings - Women's - '09/'10 at REI.com
Burton Lexa Snowboard Bindings - Women's - '09/'10 at REI.com
Ride DVa Snowboard Bindings - Women's at REI.com


I'd stay away from the Stilettos - terrible binding.
