    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 Viper Bike Mount is rated 4.3333 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Solid rack, with some issues... Okay, I've got three of these racks (older, non-plastic models) on two of our cars, and once they're on and set up, they're great. Once I get the bike in there, it's not going anywhere, and never had any fear of losing my ride. But there are a couple of caveats: First up, the adjustment screw really is a pain in the backside. I realize that it makes the rack theftproof when locked, but I've lost count at the amount of skin I've lost on my thumb trying to adjust it. Second, removing the racks is a pain in the backside, because of said screw. If you just want to be able to pop your bike tray off and on when it's needed, you need to completely unthread the quick release, and completely remove the bolt skewer from the head in order to remove the tray. Again, I get that the design makes it theftproof, but... Third: On THAT note... I recently traded in my old car for a new Audi, and moved a pair of the Vipers to my new wheels. One popped off (relatively) quick, but the other skewer would NOT come out. Finally had to use a thin piece of plastic rod and tapped it out with a rubber mallet, and discovered that the metal skewer was bent. Now, I do cinch my bikes down relatively tight, but not to that extent! And this was the rack on the passenger side, which means it only had a bike in there if I was driving with a friend's bike on there - which only happened a handful of times. Took the part to a Yakima Authorized Repair dealer, who told me that if I wanted to replace the bolt, I had to buy a whole new skewer assembly for $30. Pfft. Fourth: And this is just purely nitpicking I guess - but anything red on your Yakima rack will fade like CRAZY in the sun. The plastic on the head, as well as the buckle on the rear straps are now a shade of dirty pink as opposed to bright red. Small thing, but... c'mon guys, use some UV-resistant plastic or something? Still tho, all in all, a decent rack for hauling your bikes around, and when purchased on sale is a good buy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great I had originally purchased the Raptor upright bike rack but quickly returned it in favor of the lower profile Viper. Sure you have to remove the front wheel every time, but securing the front fork makes the bike much more stable on the roof and makes the bike a little less appealing to steal. Contrary to what other reviewers have found, I've had absolutely no problem attaching the front fork to the skewer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Like all Yakima products, this rocks. This is my 4th and final Viper (I keep adding to keep up with a growing family). I love it!
