    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    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.

    Backpacker's Pantry Cuban Coconut Beans and Rice - 2 Servingsis rated4.0out of5by1.
    Rated4out of5byfromWorked well with fishPurchased this specifically to serve alongside trout if caught. Ended up placing pan-fried trout fillets (lemon pepper and smoked paprika seasoned) into pouch as the pouch cooked/rehydrated due to timing issues of the meal. The result was excellent as all four participants noted. Cooked meal at 9,000+ feet with extra cook time as suggested, and some insulation around the packet to make the rehydration more effective. The mixture of the seasoned trout and this dish worked well together. Also enjoyed the rice/bean remnants separately when the trout was gone. My only reason for ranking this a 4 rather than 5 is that I used it to as an augment to fish rather than having it as stand-alone. Therefore, I don't know how much the trout contributed to the flavor of the whole packet. Did not have issues with unrehydrated beans or rice. If one is having these problems the issue is likely with the method of keeping the packet insulated/warm while cooking, particularly at high altitude where the boiling water temp is lower and the cook time longer.
