    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.

    CygoLite Streak 280 USB Front Bike Lightis rated4.0out of5by4.
    Rated5out of5byfromVery happy for commutingI use this for commuting to my office in downtown Washington, DC across a combination of trails and roads typically around dawn and dusk, so my needs are not for seeing in the dark but rather for visibility to folks on the trails and the busy streets in DC. I have a couple of different bikes for commuting and like that I can switch this light easily from a handlebar to a recumbent mount. The flashing mode is VERY attention-grabbing. I constantly get head turns or looks from drivers and pedestrians. The full-on headlight works great for me for wooded trails since they are never completely dark around here.

    Rated5out of5byfromKind of BlindingGreat little commuting light. I usually buy the cheap and highly portable ones which I lose almost instantly. The price was hard to swallow at first but I'm glad I got it. It is great, highly visible, rechargeable which is great. The other night on my commute home I was told "That's kind of blinding!" by someone. Which I loved, that is kind of the point. It helps you be seen.

    Rated1out of5byfromCygolight Streak - Bright but DumbI really want to like this light. It's compact, it's really bright - all in all - it seems solid. But Cygolight dropped the ball. My other rechargeable lights, all Nite Riders, use backlit power buttons that let you know when the light is running out of juice. All give you some warning, so you don't literally get left in the dark. Apparently, Cygolight decided that a bright, USB-chargeable design was good enough. Perhaps they thought that most cyclists wouldn't mind the light dimming out without warning during a ride. For a bike commuter like me, though, that was a bad decision. Cygolight seems like a decent brand. I hope they rework this light. For example, they could include a blinking red LED under the power button to alert the rider that they were running short on run time. Until they do, avoid this light.

    Rated5out of5byfromThe light worksGreat light for night or day rides. Very bright high setting acts just like a car headlight; bright enough even on dark country roads. Flashing setting makes you more visible for day rides.
