    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.

    by fromOne strap doesn't hold I bought this for my first grader, and size wise it's fine. We're able to fit a folder, a library book, a pair of sneakers, a lunch box, a couple of snack boxes and water bottle on the outside. When it's full, it gets pretty heavy for a first grader. What I have a problem with is one of the shoulder straps doesn't stay in place and is loose. We're tried adjusting it several times, but it still loosens after wearing.

    by fromA Preschooler-sized Pack Pack seems to be of very good quality, but of insufficient size to meet the school-travel needs of a child older than 5. We bought it for our 9 year-old, who loved the color scheme, but there is no way to fit books, supplies and a lunch inside this pack. Buy it for your preschooler, but find something else for an older child.
