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.

Comments about Sawyer Mini Water Filter:
I ditched my Katadyn Hiker for the original Sawyer, then sold my original Sawyer for the Mini. It's nearly as fast as either one of those, and will last a very very long time. With a bag, it weighs in the neighborhood of 3oz, 5X less than the Katadyn. At this point, you're bound to forget it's in your pack, it's so light. It's only been out for a month, so I haven't had the chance to use it much, but I've been able to run a few liters through it, and I can't tell much difference compared to the original. There were a few problems though. My old Platypus bag no longer fits the threading. My new Platypus bag does. The threads are a little shorter than before, so the Platypus bag doesn't fit quite a securely. No big deal, the new bag feels secure enough. If I had to change one thing though, I think Sawyer should have made both ends the same. The lack of threading on the output side severely reduces the useability. I prefer to have a closed system when filling 1L bags or bigger, it's just easier, less messy, and more idiot proof. That's what I want when I'm tired from a long hike. So, I had to do a little DIY and cut the tube and bag connector off of an old Platypus hydration pack Unfortunately, to connect any tube to the outlet end of the Mini, you need to use brute force to force the tube on to the nipple. That's not fun, and a I've already had it slip off several times, only to end up with the bag pouring water on the ground. Of course, I can force the tube on further, but I don't want to have to work at this, in the field. A simple threaded connector would have made this product perfect. For now, four stars, till next year's model.
