    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.

    Platypus Water Tank - 1 rated2.0out of5by5.
    Rated2out of5byfromTastes like plastic after 24 hoursMy goal was to carry good tasting Oakland water areas I travel where the water is not as good. I want to avoid the plastic taste of Camelbak. Platypus does not taste as much like plastic as Camelbak, but after 24-48 hours, the plastic taste increases. It is not taste-free, as Platypus promises. In addition, the top is challenging to close. It takes a few tries to get it completely closed. Unfortunately, I will be returning this item.

    Rated3out of5byfromCompact but likes to be stationaryHoped to take on hikes as extra water source for a group, but the ziploc-type closure was not ideal for being jostled and would spill open. Would be great in a campground type setting I imagine, but I returned and bought a dromedary/dromlite bag from REI instead. Did stay shut better if your hands were right on the handles. Easy to pour.

    Rated1out of5byfromThrew mine awayWhen I bought this, it smelled so bad, I called the manufacturer. He blamed it on the seller (!?). Each time I've used it, I've got more annoyed with the dysfunctional plastic zipper. Tried my best, can't get it to close securely. With relief, I tossed it in a campgrount trash container this month. Looking for a replacement.

    Rated1out of5byfromcan not sealThis water carrier is a good idea, more compact than the traditional models for camping/backpacking. However as mentioned in other reviews it is impossible to seal and keep a seal. The material is too tough to press together. I hammered it shut before leaving and it still opened as soon as it was filled. Buy a traditional collasable jug for a fraction of the cost.

    Rated3out of5byfromGood at Storing water but tough to sealI purchased this to go on a 3 day Backcountry hike that required we pack in all of our water. My initial thought was that I could pack it but once it was full and I ran some test it seemed to work best when held/supported by handles otherwise the corners would leak if turned on side or squeezed. I ended up attaching to outside of backpack and strapped in down but had to be careful when taking off pack or leaning on objects to rest. However, it held the water and served it purpose, just not meant to be packed.
