    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.

    Yakima SkyBox 12 Roof Boxis rated4.5714out of5by7.
    Rated5out of5byfromOne of my favorite purchases ever.Use this mostly for skiis, poles and at times boots. I used to like just throwing the skiis in the rear of my Q5 but it's dangerous in a crash and I drive from canyon to canyon here in UT. This is a great product. Not only simple to install and use but just really well designed. For the price this is a great product. If it's skis, boots and poles mostly then this is as much roof box as you'll need.

    Rated4out of5byfromI would buy this product againThis was exactly what we needed for our trip - it fit the perfect amount of luggage to allow for more space in the car. Two things to keep in mind, I would suggest getting it installed at the store. The box was way to big to fit into my car to get home, so that was my only option. It was inexpensive and was very fast. Also, because it is pretty long, I couldn't open my hatch very easily. I forgot one time and accidentally automatically lifted the gate from my key chain and the carrier nicked the car. All was well, totally my fault, and I can't wait to use this carrier again soon!

    Rated5out of5byfromAwesomeThis Skybox came right out of the box and was on my Rav4 in just a few minutes. We've driven 1000 miles already in wind, rain, and sand storms and it hasn't budged or made a sound. We're very happy with it.

    Rated4out of5byfromThis box is larger than you think!I used to have a Thule box a few years back, I sold my car and sold the box. Now I have a new Subaru impreza and decided to get a new box for upcoming adventures. First impressions: Solid construction and nicely finish, larger than you think or larger than it looks on the picture. It may be a bit heavy for one person to carry and install (claim weight 41 lbs) the length makes it cumbersome to handle. My wagon has a spoiler and it will touch the box and keep hatch from opening completely, this is not really a problem (see picture) at least not for me. There is not a way to avoid this since you have to center the box from nose to tail. Also, you can place it on the center of the factory rack but this will bend the antenna, or you can place it to the side and will clear just barely. Installation is really simple, you only have to adjust the knobs once after that simply release the clamps and remove, much easier than the old styles. I only drove on the highway for a brief period of time so I can not comment on stability. However, if it is anything like my old box it should be just fine. You hear some wind noise and it will shake a bit but it tends to be minimal. I had it deliver to my local REI since it is really big and they would have charged me extra for shipping. It was back ordered so I had to wait three weeks, but the delivery process was really easy and the sales staff helped me carry it outside. This box will see a lot of use/gear with three humans and two dogs the extra capacity will be in high demand. I only gave it four stars because I have not taken it on the road, but based on quality of materials, size, ease of installation and style I'd recommend it!

    Rated4out of5byfromDoes the Job.Fits Subaru Outback 2013. Can be moved forward or back so it does NOT interfer with liftgate. Centered there is room for a roof mount bike rack on each side. Works on standard Outback roof rail/crossbar system. Locks are NOT compatible with my Thule locks on bike racks.

    Rated5out of5byfrombetter than expectedThis box is extremely durable: I forgot I had it on my car and drove into my garage. It broke the garage door but didn't leave a scratch on the box. It is easy to install and adjust and has more space than I expected. We had 4 sets of skis and poles, a snowboard and room to spare.

    Rated5out of5byfromgreat topperi wish someone had just made me get this a long, long time ago. about a week after getting this we went on a 5,800 mile road trip. second day of the trip we hit 50 mph winds and intense rain on i-90. the topper didn't budge and everything inside stayed dry and secure. it held two tents, three sleeping bags, two sleeping pads, two cotts, all the extra shoes my girlfriend brought, two pillows, four fly rods, two pairs of waders, wading boots, lots of dog food, tons of photo equipment including lightstands & umbrellas, a duffel bag, various daypacks . . . seriously. i had always been told that yakima's were made in mexico, but mine says made in the USA. the actualy quality of of the plastic seemed a little flimy-ish at first, but bad winds & hail didn't leave a mark on it. all the the other hardware inside the box is very well made. this topper has ultimately let us bring both of our dogs on much longer trips than we had been able to do in the past, which has been priceless. highly, highly recommended.
