    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.

    REI Connect Tech Garage is rated 4.4667 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really cool accessory for your Kingdom! So I bought the CTG over the winter to go with my Kingdom 4. I just went camping with it for the first time and thought I would add some photo's in use and stuff like that. It went up the first time, no problem, no instructions. It goes up easier with 2 people but could be done by one. Once up you can choose to guy it out if needed, we were along side a massive lake and was quite windy, so I opted to do so just in case. The interior was the perfect amount of extra room for your gear/toys/etc...I did buy 2 of the optional REI 6ft Tarp Poles to open one side up like an awning. Love it! At night you can drop the poles and zip it shut with everything inside. I would also like to add that the 6ft tarp poles fit inside the CTG carry bag, and that the TCG is very proportional to the K4. Great investment, and really completes the Kingdom tents. You will not be disappointed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have for your Kingdome Love the garage. Got a 4' plastic folding table from a blue label big box store and it is perfect for the end. I'm 6' 2" so I do wish it was a little taller. Also a couple loops inside to hang lights etc. would be a great addition. Overall makes a great porch, shady or dry spot depending on the weather. Do yourself a favor and spend the extra money, you will not regret it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It has all been said - I concur. Get it! Everyone is right - if you have a compatible tent get this. Just buy it at the same time... you will want it. It is very useful rain or shine. The nitpick - yes, REI you should have included one more stake and a guyline for the top. I used reflective cord on mine since this is the one you will be tripping on in the dark... I know.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definately worth it. With the fly not covering the entire Kingdom 6, I was drawn to the Connect Tech Garage. Though kind of put off by the name (garage), I was primarily interested in the complete coverage of my tent. It attached easily and included the same quality stakes as the tent. And as I'm getting older (read stiffer) it still makes an easy opening. With the awning held open by trekking poles and guys (neither included with the garage) then it's a shady place to relax.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This makes my tent a condo This is a must for me and my wife in our Hobitat 4. We sleep on a tall queen air mattress and the garage gives us much needed space for our bags, cooler, changing area etc. We bought the extra poles to extend the fly, but have only used them once on a really sunny day at a campsite with little shade. We usually just roll the flaps up. The garage is a great place to put your cooler/chairs/firewood if you leave your site for a day hike. This is definitely worth it if you have a compatible tent.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to a Kingdom 4, 6, or 8 Great addition to REI Kingdom tents. Be careful though, this will make a Kingdom 8 tent quite massive. Perfect for a Kingdom 6, gives just enough extra space. Beware, it is not very tall on the inside, and if you plan on putting chairs or tables under it, they would need to be lower to the ground.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great windshelter I'll add my 5 stars to everyone else. REI has a homerun with this product. I got the last available campsite at one of the camps at Zion Nat'l Park and the website stated there was NO SHADE at our spot. I got this to provide some shade during the day and a spot to put our stuff so it's not just sitting out in the open. It was pretty windy off and on the entire time we were there (20mph gusts according to nat'l weather service) and the garage held up wonderfully. I had it staked and guyed out the awning held up by 2 poles. It did shake a bit but it never collapsed or shifted. It was a great place to cook breakfast one windy morning when being out in the wind would have blown out my stove and tossed my pots around. It provided enough space for 2 coolers, the REI packnprep, a stove and 2 chairs (one being a recliner) and some room to stretch out. 2 people at the campground who had REI tents came by to check it out between wind gusts and said they were going to buy the garage when they got home after hearing our raving reviews. I do wish that either, A) REI included poles to create an awning; or B) sold less expensive extendable poles. I bought two sturdy 7' poles from [a well known competitor] for less than the price of one pole from REI. No dings on my rating for this simply because REI does state that poles are not included. Great buy, no regrets.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a must! Took the family camping at Carolina Hemlocks and we had just purchased the Connect Tech Garage. We ended up going on one of the rainiest weeks of the year. This addition was perfect for keeping belongings out of the weather as well as giving us a place to change without having to go inside the actual tent which kept the tent nice and clean. We couldn't imagine going without this addition.
