    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.

    Diamondback Insight 24" Boys' Bike - 2014 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, so good Bought this bike for my 10 year old son. The size is just right for him (he's 50% height). Because we ride exclusively on paved surfaces,I liked the smooth tires and lack of suspension system (just added weight). The price was very good too (plus it was on sale) compared to some other brands (important because he'll outgrow the bike in a couple of years). The main negative is that the front derailleur is difficult to shift, and my son doesn't have the hand strength to shift (hopefully next year he will). I tried it myself and could do it, but I can see why he can't. Also, the quick release on the seat post is nice, but there is no quick release on the front wheel.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect bike for my 9 yr old My son's first bike with hand brakes and gears. He has ridden it every day since we bought it three weeks ago. Size of the frame, easy seat post adjustment, narrower hybrid-style tires - all are making his riding experiences great.
