    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 Big Mouth Upright Bike Mountis rated3.5out of5by2.
    Rated4out of5byfromGood for road and mountain bikesThis is my 3rd Big Mouth. It is easy to put on the car and easy to load the bike. I would highly recommend getting a lock for it so the mouth doesn't come open. With the lock engaged I have never had problems with a bike coming loose whether on dirt roads or highways. I like putting my bikes on the roof to keep the dirt off the gears and wheels. I use it on an Expedition and Rav 4.

    Rated3out of5byfromNeeds the right accessories....To buy the full rack system and one of these bike carriers is about $500 - $600 or so. What Thule seems unable to mention are a few glaring issues: -it seems very easy to steal a bike from this unit. They offer a lock option that attaches to the 'big mouth' portion of the unit, but as other have said, it seems really easy for a thief to just take the wheels off first and then they've got your bike. Also, it really doesn't look too hard to just unscrew most of the unit from the crossbars, and then take the whole thing away and worry about separating your bike from the big mouth later.... -if you buy Thule Aeroblades, you'll need the Thule XADAPT2 kit to connect the Big Mouth to it. Nowhere in the instructions, on the box, or on their website is this mentioned. I found this out from a third party website which had information on this. Worse still, the instructions for the XADAPT2 seems to think users only have VW cars or a truck bed rack. Not once is the word 'Aeroblade' mentioned. Also, the instructions are also poor because they don't show how to install half of the Big Mouth to the cross bars. Does Thule try to build these things themselves? The REI staff spent almost 30 minutes trying to figure this out on Thule's site before someone who had previous knowledge of this helped out....
