    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 fromDo not judge a product by its advertisin I have owned 2 of these monocular's and both failed me at critical times. One simply started to rattle and the other was decidedly not waterproof.

    by fromShoddy Eyepad I got this for my everyday hikes where weight is an issue. It's lightweight and waterproof design made it a good substitute for binoculars. It is easy to use and the focus mechanism is very good. The rubber eyepiece came unglued on a Grand Canyon backpacking trip after just a day or two of use. That wouldn't be so much of an issue except this piece is supposed to be waterproof and good, solid sealing is integral to being resistant to water. I'd rate the monocular higher except I have no confidence in the rest of the construction.

    by fromGood Product A bit bigger than the Brunton - but easier to focus and better construction. A bit heavy for its size - but that may be due to the solid weatherproof construction. Good choice over small binoculars to save a bit of space and weight.
