    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.

    AlpineAire Mountain Vegetarian Chili - 2 Servings is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from delicious These are tasty. AlpineAire has sold these in a "Lower Sodium" version as well, don't know if the entire version is now reformulated, or if that is a separate version. In any case, the chili spices are wonderful and well-balanced. The "lower sodium" one tastes like it should have just a touch more salt to me. Makes the TVP or whatever soy they use very palatable, along with the freeze dried beans and corn. The chili is especially nice with a little bit of tabasco or some BBQ sauce. The TVP is cut into small gravelly pieces about 1/2 the size of a grain of wheat, so you really get a good "ground meat" texture in the chili. I eat this once every few weeks (I have some extra packets at work for emergency food), and I never mind eating it. My only slight gripe is that it's difficult to portion out 2 meals from the reusable bag. The dry beans/corn/TVP tend to settle out towards the top, so if even if you shake it to recombine and pour it into 2 separate containers, your first portion what the bigger chunks of beans/corn/etc. and the 2nd portion has all the chili spices and salt. This is not a problem if you make 2 servings in the same bag. However, I'm a big guy, over 6'5" + 220lbs and there's no way I can eat a whole bag, it's a LOT of food. I tried once, but I couldn't finish it. I've had the AlpineAire chicken gumbo as well, also very good.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tons of flavor I purchased this meal mostly because my daughter is glutin free and I wanted something with more bold taste.
