There are a number of ways to save big bucks buying gear, a new favorite site of mine is Gear Trade. GearTrade.com is the premier marketplace to sell and buy outdoor gear, and many of the items are not even used, they’re product returns to sites like Backcountry and others. I’ve racked up some significant savings there and you can sign up to unload some gear if you dont want it anymore.
Some of my other favorite spots to check are the REI 50% off outlet, REI Garage Sales, Sierra Trading Post (always google for coupons), and the GoLite Clearence Closet. Also, I tend to keep an eye on one deal a day sites like SteepandCheap.
Here’s how it works:
- Steep and Cheap sells one screamin’ deal at a time until it’s gone.
- The deals are fat, so they sell out fast.
- You have to act fast or you’ll miss it, but don’t stress—as soon as one deal sells out, we kick off another.
- It’s back-to-back deals all day long.
There’s always Ebay and Craigslist, as well as the LL Bean outlet if you are lucky enough to live near one! Have any to add?
