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.

Comments about MSR Backcountry Barn Tent:
So here's the thing: there's no rain fly. I know, it's all seam sealed and has the bathtub floor, but I have trouble trusting it, since the water rolls straight down the sides and not away from it at all.
I have only had mine in light rain, and there were no problems, but I can't feel confident that it works in a heavy rain. But it's MSR, I'm sure they thought of this.
My engineering critique aside: It's super roomy, I can stand in it. The removable floor is a bit of a pain when setup and teardown come, but it's nice that you can take it out and just have the ground as an option depending on what you're doing. I took out the floor to camp a few days at the racetrack on concrete, was glad I could bring the nice tent. Not exactly what this fancy tent was for, but it did great.
The removable floor does leave a gap that could (read does) allow bugs to get in.
In the end, I don't know if it's worth the hefty price or not. I got mine at an REI garage sale. For that price, I love it. For full price, I wouldn't have even considered it. But if you need a nice 3 season base camp that gets a lot of use, it would be a nice option.
