    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.

    Perception Prodigy II 14.5 Tandem Kayak is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Tandem This is my first kayak and I made a great choice. I got it to take on a small man made lake in northern NJ. I go out with my two sons, 6 and 9 yrs old. We all squeeze in (the two boys in the front, me in the back) and it's so easy. They're pointing at this, laughing at that and all the while, this kayak isn't budging. We can't flip it. Sturdy and safe. We go out for about an hour and change each time and it's not a strain. Tracks and turns with ease. I took it out to a pretty big river and it was just like the lake. The wind picked up and the current was moving, but all along, I never felt like I was going over. This kayak has a great design that won't disappoint. I can lift it alone to the top of a Subaru Outback with a Thule Hulliport rack without too much trouble. With 2 adults, it would be a lot easier, of course. All in all, a well rounded kayak that you'll enjoy from the first time out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great First Kayak This is my first Kayak and has turned out to be one of the best purchases that I have ever made. The removable child seat is great for my 3 year old daughter. It is easy to paddle, stable, tracks well and has plenty of room. Me and my family love this kayak!
