    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.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    by fromOver-flavored Almost too much "mexican flavoring powder" used in this meal. Even adding a little extra water could not powerdown the amount of spice and flavoring. The beans did not reconstitute well, even after 20 minutes.

    by fromNot a Fan This is one of my least favorite meals. I find that it is a little bit to seasoned, has to many beans compared to chicken, and frankly does not taste to good. When something called Rice and Chicken one might expect there to be mostly rice and chicken. But this meal is mostly rice and beans with about as much chicken as there are peppers.

    by fromGreat dinner This was the first backpacking food my wife and I ever had. It was far better than either of us expected. It could easily compete with a lot of prepared meals you buy at the grocery store to cook at home.

    by fromMmmm Mexican Chicken and Rice We tried a bunch of different freeze dried foods on our last canoe camping trip. This one was the best tasting by far, almost like momma makes it at home. The only negative was the package is bulky, but it collapses flat to pack out. Great to mix the food in, though.

    by fromGood Stuff Tastes great. Didn't find it to be "over-spiced" as some other reviewers did. Could have used a few more minutes cooking to get the beans perfect but the recommended 9 minutes was adequate. Definitely wouldn't mind eating this 2 nights in a row. As with all MH meals I've had: a 2-serving size will adequately fill you up; double that or go with the 4-serving size for two people.
