Want do you think?
I've been using Shimano SPD pedals since they first became available, and the only time I've gotten a "click" out of them was after a couple thousand miles of wear. New cleats fixes this every time.
I'd go back to REI and describe the problem and let them fix it. Clicks in pedals can pedals, or the pedal threads, or a loose chainring bolt, or the crank hitting the derailleur cable, or a wiggle in the BB threads...
