    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.

    Thule Sonic Alpine Roof Box is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pricey, but (nearly) Perfect! We purchased this box for our 2005 Toyota Highlander after trying a few others (including our old Rocketbox). This is the only box that would allow our car to clear the overhead garage door while also long enough to carry nordic skis. The nice part is that it has greater fore-aft adjustment than other boxes, so it doesn't interfere with the rear hatch (we're using it with Yakima crossbars, not the factory crossbars). The single lock on each side is easy to use (but NEVER unlock both sides at the same time, like I did). This box is on the small-side for volume, but it's still a huge help for road trips. Oh, it looks awesome too!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it for skiing! Purchased for my Toyota Highlander 2011. So happy now! My 3 criteria were: easy to install/adjust, allows back hatch to open, and fits on the SUV even in our standard garage. Originally purchased Yakima, but it was heavier, much harder to adjust to the racks, and much hard to tighten onto the racks, could not open hatch fully, and did not fit in the garage. This Thule was easy to pick up and put on the roof of the SUV, very easy to align with the car rack, easy to know when clamps are set due to the click you hear (like gas cap click). The box ends up hanging slightly over the top of our windshield (can't see though from front seat). We were nervous that we would get a lot of wind resistance, but were pleasantly surprised at the lack of noise, vibration, and minimal effect on our gas mileage. Yeah!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good box for uses I have this on the top of the shell of my truck. I needed a low profile box that fits skis, boards, kites, kiteboard, wet stuff, and more. The one issue is that the mechanisms that allow you to tighten and loosen the box to the cross bars take up a lot of room on the inside. this makes it hard to fit a board with other stuff.
