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.
by Mark sits at a desk to muchfromA pretty decent standard coolerIts a pretty standard cooler. Decent capacity. Seems to keep things as cold for as long as expected, neither disapointing or impresive.
Dood handles. Easy to drain.

by Drew the camping connoisseurfromNot used but so far so good.I have not used this yet. However, from the inside and out the cooler is as advertised. It has a large spacious interior, good drain plug, and the color scheme is sharp. I am anxious to test this cooler out as temperatures today reached 104 degrees.

by Nature GlimpsesfromA little disappointedWE were going car camping for 5 days and decided we needed a larger coleman cooler than the one we had purchased the year before (which was also a 5 day keeps cool cooler). Unlike the smaller cooler (54 qt or so) the thickness or insulation of the sides were a lot thinner. The blue 54 qt one was used in eastern washington with temps in mid 80's for five days and food was still cool. This 70 qt one we tried out in western washington with temps in low 70's and the ice melting rapidly. although we could get more food into it which was a plus it didn't cut it for keeping cool the entire 5 day trip. We followed instructions and put ice into the cooler a day ahead so it would be cool when the fresh ice was put in, etc. This cooler would need to have more than a block of ice and a bag of ice to last 5 days, which would leave less space for food.
We kept the cooler in the van at all times and in the shade.
We returned the cooler and are just sticking with the smaller coleman cooler that has much thicker insulation and takes less ice and keeps things cool as advertised.
We really liked the color and size of the cooler and the way it felt -- if you only plan to use it for 2-3 days it would probably work out. It is a nice looking cooler. we were sorry we had to return it.

by IslandhighfromPretty good coolerI followed the enclosed instructions (pre-chill everything including cooler then add .75 lbs of ice/quart of capacity, do not drain water) and took it out to the Nevada desert for 4 days filled with a half a case of beer, 6 quarts of soda and some food. I used two 10 lb blocks of ice and the remainder cubes. The cooler remained in my SUV the entire time with air temps hitting 100 each day. The lows at night hit the low 60's. I still had ice remaining after 4 days and the beverages were ice cold. It did its job. Why not 5 stars? Too much ice is required to keep it cold and it takes up a lot of the capacity. Not draining the water certainly kept it cold but everything was floating.
Nice thin walls and it is very light. Good cooler for an extended weekend.

by GibletchongfromOutstanding, especially for the priceI bought 2 of these to take to a family reunion at Tx Coast. They worked extremely well, kept everything chilly for many days(added ice one time after initial fill during the entire week)and in all honesty worked better/colder/longer than the other, more expensive cooler I brought that rhymes with Eddie :)

by FuegoRunnerfromCool Cooler!!!I was on a 4 day camping trip. Bought a large bag of ice the first day. We kept the cooler outside our tent. Outside temperature was in the low 80's during the day and high 50's at night. And even though there was no ice by the 4th day the water in the cooler kept food and drinks cold. Also we ended up using the cooler as an extra seat.
