    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.

    Rated4out of5byfromMidland GXT1000VP4 2-Way RadiosRight now I have just used it in close areas, I have to get miles in between devices. If all works out well, I'll be using them on hiking/kayaking trips. Let you know more later after I play with them a bit more.

    Rated1out of5byfromWorked O.K. until one diedBought a pair for hunting. They were not abused in any way. After the 3rd. use, one of them died. Just wont turn on, Tried switching batteries, not the problem, the radio just died. Get something else or get an extended warranty.

    Rated3out of5byfromUsed for motorcycle communicationsBACKGROUND: Used these for a motorcycle trip for bike-to-bike commo. PRO: - The sound was clear - VOX worked good, especially considering the noise of a motorcycle environment - battery worked all day (10+ hrs) the first day CON: - figuring out the buttons is a bit of a challenge. - 2-pin mic/headphone jack is a PITA to match with other cables if you're not just carrying these, but plugging into a comms system mixer like on a motorcycle - They weren't waterproof enough to withstand all-day drizzle. Mine was fine, but my friend's went hot-mic on the 2nd day. - Headsets are uncomfortable just on your head. Under a helmet, they're awful - Headset mics are clearly not waterproof. Mine failed 1st day. My friend's on the 2nd day. DISCUSSION: - Somewhat large compared to other solutions - Charger cradle is bit dumb if you only have two. Being able to use AA as well as the rechargeables is a plus though.

    Rated3out of5byfromThe Good and the BadI'll cut to the chase on these toys. Their above average radios (including all the perks of such a radio) however: It didn't come with a belt clip, rechargable battery even though it came with a base charger(what's the point?) and but not least the head set is just plainly trash. Overall: it would better if they solding it with more common sense items. I would recomend it to others for the radio it self but find it a slight to pricey for what I am getting as a whole. thanks for reading, JoGo

    Rated5out of5byfromgreat radiosI have used these things more than I thought. I bought these initially for hunting. I have used them scouting, hunting, 4x4ing, road trips, fishing, working, and more. They get great reception so far. I have been from the Arizona desert to the rocky mountains in Colorado and they worked great. I just went on a road trip for 22 hours and the battery lasted for one day of constant use between me and my buddies truck. The head sets are not so great as far as comfort. after the first day on the trip my ear was raw so I bought some of the rubber style security ear buds and they are awesome.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat Radio'sgot this for my camping trips and emergency kit. great reception in the deep woods and even better reception with a clear line of sight! as for easy to program these radios are breeze (i suggest reading the manual before programming its very user friendly). also these radios do have a VOX function in case you were wondering. not sure what's up with the other reviews, but my set has'nt failed me yet and ive owned mine for about 2 1/2 years and still running strong. also picked up the tactical camo push to talk headsets which are great for hunting (added you turn off all the sounds when programming)
