    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.

    Kelty Frontier 6 Tent is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the expense I've been using this tent on a three week trip. When we return, I intend to bring it back to REI. The first week of the trip was sunny and warm and the tent was great in this weather. It is spacious, comfortable, fairly easy to set up. However, within the first THREE days of being set up, the front right zipper to the vestibule broke! Not what I would expect for this kind of money... I made my peace with that and the the rain came... We fully waterproofed the tent and sealed the seams while the weather was nice. The tent does not come with a fly so we paid extra attention to the roof and seams around the roof and windows. After one night of fairly heavy rain there was a puddle in the corner of the tent. After a few days of light - moderate rain there was condensation on EVERYTHING, and we were noticing that the zippers to the big windows were leaking and water was dripping down the windows and onto the floor. We also had two big spots on the roof that were leaking right through. If you're planning on taking this tent on short trips in nice weather its great (besides the zipper!) But I do not recommend it for any long trips especially if it might rain. Very disappointed!
