What You'll Do
Ready for your next adventure? Heck yes you are! Because you just scored a $10,000 gift card to REI. And that means no matter where life takes you—from the mountains to the desert to your own backyard—you’ll be geared up and good to go. Whether you shop for a canoe or a whole fleet of canoes, replace your hiking boots or replace your whole wardrobe, this isn’t just about all the things you can buy. (Which don’t get us wrong, is a lot.) It’s about all the things you can TRY. So go cycling through the winding trails of Zion National Park. Find yourself rappelling down a waterfall in Belize. Snap a picture so majestic your friends start calling you Ansel Adams. You’ve got $10,000 in your pocket and a whole wide world to explore. What are you waiting for?
