Default Backcountry vs. REI

Some may have saw my other thread about tents. I bought one at REI, last they had of that model. I was told I could take it in today and be refunded 20% for the coupon, since if I waited for the sale, it would probably be sold. Today they would not give me the 20%. They recently changed their return policy and also made me leave when I brought my lab in the store (formerly pet friendly business), not today, but strikes 1 and 2.

I returned the tent at REI today and bought it from Backcountry online. After I placed the order, they called me to recommend getting the footprint. They gave me both items 20% off, free two day shipping, and best of all there is no sales tax from Utah to Texas. May not sound like a huge deal, but it saved me just over $200.

I was really impressed with Backcountry. If like me, you have been disappointed with the changes at REI the last few years or even if you are not, you should give Backcountry a chance.
