When it comes to returns, REI ranks up there with Costco and Nordstrom for its willingness to accept any item you don't want. And once a year, when the brand has acquired all the returned equipment it can handle, it hosts a massive yard sale to clear out the merch.

Folks, that sale is this weekend  

The event, which runs from 8 am–1 pm on Saturday, December 3 at 840 Brannan, will feature "rock bottom prices on used gear and clothing", but it's only open to REI co-op members. Sign-up only takes a few minutes; complete the form here.

If you're looking to make a big ticket purchase like a bike or skis, this is the best deal you'll find.
