    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.

    by fromNot quite UV resistant These are useful when you want to use your Yakima rack to carry oblong objects that don't have a corresponding mount. Only problem is that these don't last long under the sun. The nylon deteriorated in a couple of years under the Texas sun. If there was a UV resistant coating it would be a great product.

    by fromneed to be bigger... I bought the pads to protect my yolo boards...but the pads could be wider and have a rubber gasket or something to prevent sliding around as I load the boards on top of the pads. The price was reasonable. I can't say how durable because they are brand new and have only been used twice.

    by fromPerfect for my needs I use the pads to transport my kayak. Originally, I bought the crossbar pads purely for the aesthetics, but quickly found out how more convenient they are to use than my bow-downs. After each paddle I would remove my bow-downs to get better gas mileage, when not paddling, by reducing wind friction and weight. With the crossbar pads I can leave them on full-time and with the words Yakima written across them they add a certain cool-factor to my car.

    by fromBest value for the money! I've bought numerous pairs of these over the years. They are very forgiving and do the job well. From kayaks and canoes to surf and stand-up paddle boards, these pads are my go-to equipment for my water sports. For the money, you can't beat'em.
