    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.

    Rated5out of5byfromHave lots if they have RED in themHave several of these Buff by Buff for my head gear. If there is one with RED color I will buy it for my street uniform as I do my " Walk-Abouts ". They are GOOD Stuff.

    Rated2out of5byfromNot Worth the MoneyMost annoying: I loved the design, but the "Buff" logo is on this small piece of fabric FOUR times. Would not buy again for that reason alone, but if your head is not exactly the right size for this, it can give you an instant and lasting headache. I thought it would have some give/stretch.

    Rated5out of5byfromLove this BuffI bought one for my friend and one for myself. We both love our buffs and find it entertaining to switch it out and see all the different ways we can wear them. A must have piece...and so cute!

    Rated5out of5byfromVersatile protectionI use this when I'm out in the sun and need to keep cool. Works great, add some water and it can keep you cool for hours while providing great UV protection. Was biking in Big Bend park and had a storm roll in, just adjusted the boff and saved me from the sand storm.

    Rated5out of5byfromWear it all the timeI like mine a whole lot. I bought one of the original Buff's and i misplaced it. I went back to REI and got the coolmax (the lotus bronze color) buff. I wear a lot of orange and red, so it goes well with a lot of what I am wearing. I always wear it as a headband. I work at a daycare, and I wear it outside when I am playing with the kids because it keeps the sweat out of my eyes. I definitely plan on wearing this at school and when I am able to go hiking and walking trails.

    Rated5out of5byfromWorks great in the desert!I have wanted a Buff for a long time, but hadn't found the CoolMax version in a color combo I liked, until this one. I am SO happy with it. It is just as versatile as advertised and EASY to use. I hike in Nevada and my head/hair/neck stays cool and protected from the harsh sun. I am very happy with this purchase.

    Rated5out of5byfromVery versatileI just recently graduated high school, and I'm headed to Maine in the fall for college, so I have been stocking up on gear. I bought this version and the original Buff. This version offers great protection against the sun, and it breathes really well. I've worn it while kayaking and playing beach volleyball, and it has stopped me from getting burned. I have also worn it at night around my neck, and it has kept me plenty warm. This thing is very versatile, and stylish.

    Rated4out of5byfromHandy bandanna substituteNice substitute for a bandanna. Material cools off well if you dip it in a river, and it keeps the sun off my head and neck.
