Google Pay: Earn 20% Back At REI (Up To $50 Maximum)

Update 2/20/21: Available again. Hat tip to reader Davis.

The Offer

  • Google Pay is offering 20% back on purchases at REI, up to a maximum of $50.

The Fine Print

  • Valid until 1/15/2021
  • Valid at participating REI locations in the US. Not valid in US territories.
  • Valid online at REI’s website.
  • Maximum of one reward with this offer

Our Verdict

Looks like this can only be used for one purchase, so make sure not to use it on a small purchase if you have a larger purchase. Should work fine on gift cards, similar to the Target offer. There is a deal where you get a $20 bonus card when you purchase a $100 gift card, but that requires a REI membership. Google Pay was recently refreshed. There is currently a $21 referral bonus worth doing as well. With all these offers it makes me hopeful Google Pay will become a major player in the discount business.

Has anybody tried to see if an etsy gift card triggers?

I got this offer immediately the first time. Interestingly, I also tried to do the Target deal, ordering a gift card, but Target cancelled the order. Google Pay didn’t figure it out and still gave me the $20. 2 months and no sign of a clawback.

Google Pay Offers don’t work with Bank of America credit cards and possibly other banks as well. Am having a long and so far fruitless discussion with a Google Pay support supervisor though it was for the Walmart+ offer.

My previous offer didn’t track either. Google support is horrendous. I gave up even after chatting with multiple reps so I’m going to hard pass any gpay deals from now on

Reminder that today is the last day to use the $20 bonus card!

I couldn’t find anything on sale I wanted, so I used the bonus card & gift card towards a National Parks pass. Type ‘America’ in the search box to find it.

Can I just follow up with how screamin this deal was, even if google pay has goofed it up (looks like they ran the one transaction- which had $50 of actual purchase, $100 of gift card, and $20 of membership, as 3 different transactions, only posted $20 back for the $100 GC. No one has replied from customer service when I asked what was up)

I got a bunch of food I use on backpacking trips for the initial $50, mostly this one thing that is rare to find a deal on. Then put the gift cards toward a like new $250 puffy jacket for $70 and a $195 ultralight sleeping pad for $80 (storage bag has a mark on it, I never use it anyway). In total paid $177 for $50 of food and $445 of gear, and I finally have an REI membership.

I got a response after two months for the same thing. They told me to fuck off. I uninstalled gpay

Got the $20 bonus credit from REI in an email just now as well as the pending gpay $21. Nice deal!

Another DP: I purchased $250 GC (shipped) on Wednesday evening after activating the offer and going through the app link, and it still hasn’t tracked in Google Pay, whereas my Target offer tracked immediately. My partner bought a shipped REI GC as well which tracked shortly after.

Update: I just got the notification from Google Pay that REI tracked, over 4 days after the purchase. If you’re in a similar situation, there’s hope!
