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.

A Life on the Edge: Memoirs of Everest and Beyond is Jim's courageous, no-punches-pulled autobiography and a look at an itinerant, sometimes difficult life. Beyond the glory of the Everest summit and his other extraordinary climbing feats, including the first American summit of K2, he openly describes his personal, everyman experience of social upheaval in the 1960s and ‘70s, an early divorce, family strife, a passionate new love later in life, his brush with bankruptcy, and business triumphs and losses. Jim tells it all with verve and honesty and, true to his nature, turns every setback into the stage for new adventure. This special edition, published on the 50th anniversary of Whittaker's successful ascent of Everest, celebrates the story of Jim's life and features a new foreword by Ed Viesturs. Also includes a new afterword that brings readers up to date on Whittaker's life, including details of his trek to Everest Base Camp in 2012 and his son Leif's recent successful summits of Everest.
