    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.

    Blackburn Flea 2.0 USB Rear Lightis rated4.0out of5by5.
    Rated5out of5byfromGreat light for the moneyI bought the Flea front light first, and after expressing my displeasure with the fact that it charges via some weird magnetic contraption and not a standard USB cord, I realized that the magnet connections make it waterproof. So I bought a rear light, too. And then I bought both for my wife. And the Blackburn solar USB charger, though I haven't gotten that one in the mail, yet. They're good little lights. Plenty bright for city commuting at night or even on a cloudy day. I'm only using them as helmet lights now, I have other lights mounted on my bike, but if I ever need to replace those lights I'll probably look at Blackburn lights with this recharging system first. They charge quickly and last for about a week's worth of commuting for me, 10 miles roundtrip 4 days a week. The charge indicator is great, too. It gives hours of notice before the light dies.

    Rated3out of5byfromcharging issuesThe charger was hooking up properly with the light. Took it back and now it charges fine. I think I get 3 good commutes (36 mile RT) before it gets too weak.

    Rated4out of5byfromJust 22.7 Grams--Serves a Good PurposeI own many a tail light for my bikes that are a lot brighter and more visible that the Flea, but the Flea serves an important purpose: it's very lightweight--just .8 oz (22.7 grams) making it practical to have a flashing tail light on the back of lightweight road bikes. All my other lights are too heavy for my sleek machine. Look, we don't want to add needless weight to our carbon road bikes, but when you want that added level of safety on the road during the day, or if you ride at night and the law says you must have a light--there is the Flea. Isn't your safety worth an extra 22.7 grams? Now this light is not the brightest of them all--but considering its weight, small mass, and the little rechargeable battery--it makes a good showing. It has a super strong clip on it that when attached to my mini pack as seen in the photo, will not move a mm. It is as tight as if you glued it. It also comes with a velcro strap too which I have not used. The most fun part about the Flea that no other light I own has--it has a battery level meter! When you turn it off, it will flash green, yellow, or red representing battery life. So no excuse to get caught with a dead light. Carry the mini USB charger they give you, and you can charge it all over. No excuse to run out of power.

    Rated3out of5byfromSo - So bike lightComes with a velcro band to attach to seat post. Very hard to get secured correctly. Easier to clip onto a under the seat bag but I don't like them bouncy. Decent light for the price, but I wouldn't buy again.

    Rated5out of5byfromNeat and Bright Rear Bike LightI bought the Blackburn Flea when I got my new road bike, about two months ago. I clip it onto my small utility bag that hangs from the saddle and the strong mounting clip means it doesn't bounce off. I use it on 'flash' mode and the visibility is really good during my daytime rides. (I don't ride at night.) I charge it up once a week and it hasn't ran out of power during my weekly usage. It's easy to charge but is a bit hard to pull off the bag loop when it needs the weekly charge but that's why it stays put.
