    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.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    by fromSo Far So Good? My wife got this for me as a Christmas present. I saw it at a friends house and I'm always looking for new workout ideas and he showed me some cool moves and general core exercises you can do. Had a little difficulty installing just because some of the boards in my house are old and hard(crackling while screwing in). But it seems to hold up quite well considering I'm about 220+(mostly muscle of course)! I am looking forward to developing strength and endurance in my arms and back.

    by fromGreat board for the price. I already had a spot picked out for this board so installation was a breeze. While it may not have quite as many holds as a more expensive board it does the job of strengthening your hands just fine. I almost prefer it over a larger board because it was easier to install and is less obtrusive.

    by fromLeads to good improvement The outside jugs are great when my partner and I are working core, and I'm looking forward to trying the slopey parts and eventually the smaller holes and the shallower holes. It's not as big as the other board Metolius makes, but I don't think I'm missing anything. Once you find studs and mount some plywood, I would only recommend using a drill to mount the board if you have a very long bit; the screw holes are inside some rather small finger holes and we had trouble with the chuck of the drill bumping the board as the screw got further in. Alternatively, work those forearm muscles and do it by hand!

    by fromAwesome Needed something to fill the gaps in climbing sessions. So mounted this bad boy above a door and can't walk by it with out busting out a set or two.

    by fromLove Training On This Board. This board is great. I've been climbing for almost a year and decided I wanted to train for some harder routes, since I get pumped through half a pitch at 5.10a. The training routines on Metolius' website make this a great training aid for a beginner up to highly experienced climbers. I am a beer guzzling 220 lb slob (little to no muscle) and this board is completely solid when I hang and bounce around trying to switch grips... just make sure you follow the install directions. If you've never had to locate a stud or don't know what a stud finder is, you may need to get a friend to help you out.
