    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.

    NRS CVest PFD is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great feel I bought the CVest to do a solo 90 mile trip down the Edisto River. I wore it for 4 days in 55 degree rain and 80 degree sun. It was warm when i needed it and cool the rest of the time. Lots of pockets, but they dont get in the way if not used. I used a high back seat and the CVest never felt uncomfortable. Never got in the way when I paddled or ducking under limbs.
