    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    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.

    Coghlan's Bear Bell with Magnetic Silencer is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a great value for money I find the Bear Bell to be over-engineered with it's magnet, mesh sack, and velcro tabs. This is more than any real hiker / runner / adventurer needs to carry. The bell produces the wrong note to warn all common bear species in the western United States. It's also slightly overpriced with it's smoothly shaped metal. After realizing it's failings I started with a used oil drum. I turned the top half into a Jamaican Steel Drum and have been cutting out flower-shaped metal pieces from the bottom half. It's trivial to turn the metal cut-outs into my own model of bear bell. Steel ball bearings from an old Rototiller fit perfectly into my slightly larger hand made bells. The bells I make also produce the proper note to warn all species of bear that inhabit the trails of the Western US. I don't know how REI can charge nearly $5 for something that contains $1.35 in raw materials which can be easily found in any junk yard. Please do yourself a favor and make your own bell instead of paying a king's ransom for REI's luxury version.
