    Item # 830398

    REI Members get back an estimated $ 17.00 on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    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 fromVery sturdy, look sharp Got these to go on my 2011 Honda Fit. I splurged and got the Aero Bars because I wanted to minimize any gas mileage reduction. With just the bars (no load) I did not notice any decrease in mileage. They seem really sturdy. A couple of tips - the fat edge of the bar faces forward on the vehicle, like an airplane wing. This is not really explicitly stated in the directions. Second tip - search YouTube for installation instructions, particularly if you are using them with a fit kit. The Thule instructions are all pictorial (not in written language) and deciphering them was like some kind of IQ test that I felt like I was failing. I found multiple YouTube sites that had excellent step-by-step instructions for installing the fit kit and load bars, specific to my model of vehicle.

    by fromThule Bars Originally tried to buy Yakima but would not fit. Took them back to the REI Tigard and Bill spent at least an hour making sure I got the right rack for the right price. He was awesome!
