    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Thule 50-Inch Load Bars - Pairis rated4.6667out of5by3.
    Rated5out of5byfromDurable bars that fit greatI was debating between these and the AeroBlades, but decided to go with these because the AeroBlades really stuck out over the car too much (2011 Golf). The Thule fitguide recommended the 53" Aeroblades or these. I chose these because: 1) They don't stick out too far over the car. 2) You can really strap just about anything to them and they are heavy and durable. 3) You don't need extra adapters like you sometimes do with the Aeroblades because of their weird shape. Honestly, just install a fairing and you can't even tell they're up there. I can imagine they would get pretty noisy if you didn't have a fairing though.

    Rated4out of5byfromThule 50-Inch Load BarsThe fist set i bought lasted 10 years and the ends rusted out. REI replaced them for free and I'm gratefult for that. I like the Tule square bar design, better for my canoe than the other round bar brand.
