    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.

    Bike Peddler Take A Look Mirror is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I feel naked without it Up until about 5 years ago I never used any type of rear view mirror, but I'm a daily commuter and I felt like I needed an advantage when it came to traffic, especially in the winter months. I started with a handlebar mirror and it worked pretty well, but the road vibrations made the view hard to see, so I was spending too much time looking at it - not good to take my eyes off the road that long. Then I met a friend on a local century, he was using the Take-a-Look mirror and could not speak higher praise, so I purchased one that day. It took me a couple of rides to get use the rectangle in my upper left vision, but once that hurdle was crossed, it has been a constant companion. I even use it for group mountain bike rides for quick checks on new people. This is a great cycling tool and safety device, it gives you that key piece of info that may make the difference between an accident or a near miss. Also, they are very durable. During long climbs I prefer not to wear glasses, on one climbed I dropped my glasses out of my Jersey's rear pocket(mirror attached). Some riders found the glasses and the mirror after a car had driven over them - glasses were DOA, but the mirror had only a few scratches and I'm still using it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! An easy-to-use bike mirror ... This mirror easily attaches to and detaches from my bike glasses, yet is also stays firmly in place even on rough roads. And because it's firmly attached, I can adjust it while riding without the worry of it coming off. The mirror easily adjusts in three directions and stays put. The reflection is clear, large, and vibration free. It folds flat for storing and packing. I could easily take this with me on vacation, attach it to my sunglasses, and feel safer on my rented bike. Wonderful mirror!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well Does exactly what I wanted. While I have a mountain bike I did not check mountain bike as a use. I have only used it on roads (gravel and paved) so far. I can imagine that on really rough trails it might not work so well. My rating of 4 versus 5 has to do with the positioning of the mirror. I bent mine up and out so it more easily sees over my shoulder. I could use a bit more length so I could get it just an inch or so further out. With a jacket on I have to move quite a bit to see, with just a tee shirt, it works great.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from What you don't see can hurt you ... After reading about yet another B.A.D. cycling accident on a route I frequent, I decided it was time to get a rearview mirror of some sort. Started with this attached to my prescription glasses, but taking the mirror on and off the left temple it was clear my glasses were not going to fare well over time. Second approach: Attached to the visor on my helmet. This required some ingenuity and I settled on using small zip-ties to secure. Unlike a mirror attached to your bike, this mirror incurs less vibration and therefore gives you a clearer view. In use, this mirror works well. You can see the lane to your left and directly behind you. Sure you can just turn your head and look, but being able to quickly glance and see what may be coming is far more effective and consequently safer. The mirror is lightweight and relatively inexpensive. One does worry if the sharp corners of the mirror might cause injury in a crash. Is such a device really necessary? Given the multitude of ways people are finding to drive distracted, you betcha!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from bike mirror very good product; easy to set up and holds it's position well. it takes about 5 minutes to adjust and to get use to by turning your head at just the right angle.i put it on my sun glasses and it holds true. a great product at a great price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Reason to Wear a Helmet I've been commuting with my Take A Look mirror on my helmet for almost 4 years now. In that time, I've rarely forgotten my helmet, but when I have it's been my sudden, inexplicable inability to see behind me that has tipped me off and sent me back to get it in order to restore that very useful superpower. I attach it to the visor with the rubber fingers, then drill two tiny holes in the visor in the gaps between the fingers and run very small zip ties through them to secure the mirror. The surface has picked up a few light scratches over time, but it's very sturdy and resilient, getting knocked out of alignment rather than breaking. When my wife took up riding a couple years ago, I outfitted her helmet as well. It took a couple months of occasional outings, but soon she was checking for traffic with ease.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from did not like Didn't work for me at all. Wouldn't stay where I wanted it, either on helmet or on my glasses. Flopped all over the place every time I rode over a bump in the road. I had it for 4 months and finally got fed up with it. Could not find my receipt to take it back to REI. So I sent it back to the company like the package says you can. No reply, no refund from the company after 2 months. Totally bad news all around, if you ask me.
