    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 Criterium Upright Bike Mountis rated5.0out of5by1.
    Rated5out of5byfromPerfect!I love this bike rack! I already had the Thule base rack/bars on my car (an older Toyota Corolla) so this was the most logical purchase to carry my bike. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to lift my bike onto the top of my car, but it's actually way easier than I thought it would be. I'm tall but I don't have the greatest upper body strength, and my bike is on the heavier side (I'm guessing 25-30 pounds). The guy at REI who sold me the rack showed me how to lift my bike correctly, and I've done fine. I had REI install the rack and it took about 20 minutes tops. I probably could have done it myself, but I don't have the patience and I would rather pay $25 and know it's done right (and not have to spend several hours of my own time). This rack doesn't seem to create any extra drag when I'm driving (when the bike isn't on the rack) and even when the bike is on the rack, my car still drive smoothly. I haven't taken it on a freeway yet, but I don't anticipate any problems--the bike feels very stable when it's properly secured in the rack. Taking the bike in and out of the rack couldn't be any easier! Great design. The only thing to be aware of is that you need to buy the Thule locks separately. I bought 6 together (4 for the original rack and 2 for the bike rack) and they cost about $85 with tax. It's well worth it because the locks will secure your bike to the rack and make it impossible (or at least very very difficult) to steal.
