    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.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat backpacking chairI took this chair to Philmont with my son, and it worked really well. It's very lightweight and packs down small. Having a place to sit and relax, take off/put on boots, etc... was awesome. I was concerned about carrying the extra weight for such a long trip, though I am definitely glad I did.

    Rated5out of5byfromAwesome backpacking chairI love this chair! It is compact, lightweight and so comfortable that, in my opinion, was well worth adding to my backpacking equipment list. Beats the heck out of sitting on the ground, logs or rocks.

    Rated5out of5byfromVery comfortable, lightweightMy son received this chair as a gift for Christmas and he has used it several times on various camp outs. The chair is very lightweight and fits into his backpack easily. The only complaint are the small feet sink into soft ground. Our last camp out, a chair leg sank into the ground and we had to dig a bit to get the foot back. It would be nice if the feet were wider - like REI's camp stool. Other than that, the chair is terrific and very comfortable.

    Rated4out of5byfromGood chairI got this chair as a Christmas present. It is a nice chair. It's easy to use and put together. I take it backpacking. Great on flat ground, unstable on hills or uneven ground. It would be nice to have fatter ends on the chair legs so they wouldn't sink into soft ground.

    Rated5out of5byfromGood product!Owned it since June of 13. Had it at the National Jamboree and set up multiple times daily. Thus far no failures, no product malfunction and holds up extremely well. Only downside is that the feet sink in anything but firm ground but that is to be expected. I have recommended it to multiple friends.
