    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.

    • Climbing the Seven Summits: A Comprehensive Guide to the Continents' Highest Peaks measures 10 x 8.5 in.
    • For each mountain you can learn about documents and immunizations, expedition costs, training, guiding options, climbing styles and best seasons
    • Also learn about essential gear, day-by-day itineraries, summit routes, approach and camp maps, regional natural history, cultural notes and post-climb activities

    Whatever the reason, more and more people are attempting to climb the highest mountain on each continent—the renowned Seven Summits! If you’ve ever dreamed of climbing Denali or Everest, or joining the even more exclusive “7 Summiteers” club, then this guide is what you need to turn your dream into a reality.

    It can be daunting just knowing where to start when it comes to the 7 Summits. But with professional climber Mike Hamill as your guide, you will discover different approaches to tackling the list, as well as details on what you’ll need to plan an expedition and what to expect on each climb.

    Throughout you’ll also find helpful and inspiring stories from the likes of Conrad Anker, Vern Teja, Damien Gildea, Eric Simonson and other famed climbers. Special insider tips from Hamill, based on his years of experience, as well as full-color photographs of each peak round out this collectible guidebook. And, because there remains some controversy about whether Koscuiszko in Australia or Carstensz Pyramid on the island of New Guinea is the “7th Summit”, this guide to the 7 Summits actually covers 8 mountains!

    Imported.
