    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.

    Backpacker's Pantry Huevos Rancheros - 2 Servingsis rated2.5714out of5by7.
    Rated1out of5byfromReally badBought this product along with other backpacking breakfast items to try them out. This way I know for myself what I like, etc. I did not realize when I bought it that it has to be cooked in a pan. Not a big deal since I was doing this at home anyways. But I would not be using something that requires a pan. I followed directions PRECISELY. Stuff smelled ok, but turned out horrible. I ate only one bite. Now it gets funny. I put the plate out for the birds, by end of day it was all there. I put it out for critters, next day....all there. That's bad. This is one product that I would end up going hungry for the day.

    Rated2out of5byfromDisappointingThe amount of water called for is far too much. This came out more like a soup. Despite being soupy it was very gritty and didn't have much flavor.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat meal if you follow the directions!I stayed away from this meal because of earlier negative reviews, but received these as part of a Father's Day gift and decided to take it with on a 4 day backpacking trip to Michigan's Porcupine Mountains. My son and I made it for breakfast our first morning and I was very pleasantly surprised by the result. I added some crumbled bacon and served them on tortillas and they were great. Excellent flavor and texture. I very much agree with the last 2 reviewers that you need to follow the instructions. If you do that, this makes a hearty breakfast for 2.

    Rated4out of5byfromPeople need to read directionsI just need to repeat the point that Mitch makes in his review. People really need to read the package and realize what they are buying. These are not freeze dried eggs they are POWDERED eggs. When you add hot water to this it makes beaten raw eggs not cooked eggs like a freeze dried product. As such they cost less that half what the Mountain House eggs cost. I have found these very helpful in a variety of recipes and once cooked are pretty good on their own with the addition of a little more spice. But that's just my taste most folks will find them fine just as they are.

    Rated4out of5byfromAwesome Breakfast!I usually don't post reviews, but I was reading the other reviews about this breakfast, and I think a lot of them are related to user-error. It sounds like people aren't following the cooking instructions. Backpacker's Pantry eggs need to be cooked in a skillet. They're not like Mountain House eggs that you just add boiling water to. And, even though they take a little more work, I think Backpacker's Pantry eggs are really really tasty. Nice job Backpacker's Pantry. It's spicy and has really good flavor, and the beans give added protein for us vegetarians. Other people considering buying this product - if you follow the cooking instructions, you'll be very very pleased!

    Rated1out of5byfromNot GoodJust picked this up on a whim while on my way out of town to camp. What a disappointment! It was runny and gross to eat. The flavor wasn't so bad, but it was like egg soup. Not a good effort on the part of Backpacker's Pantry.

    Rated1out of5byfromDisgustingIt didn't asorb the water and I could see the powder floating around. I tried a bean and it was still crunchy. I let it sit twice as long as directed just to be sure. When I dumped it out it looked like vomit which pretty much sums it up.
