    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    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.

    Lightning Nugget Firestartersis rated2.5out of5by2.
    Rated1out of5byfromDon't waste your moneyI feel I need to comment here, to at least give a different opinion to all the 5 star reviews already presented. IMO, the cons of these firestarters are many: 1. While I do keep them in a Ziploc bag, they crumble apart and basically turn into a big mess in the bag. If you use them only to light your fireplace at home, then you may not have to worry, but if you're packing them on the trail - not so good. 2. They don't light easily - I think holding a match to a dry log would light faster. 3. They're very bulky. Bottom line, don't waste your money. If you like the store-bought solution for starting fires, fire paste works much better. If you like the DIY solution, cotton balls impregnated with petroleum jelly work very well, as do fire starters made from wax and dryer lint poured in a cardboard egg container. I've used/made the above 3 alternatives, and ALL of them are far superior to this product. Pair them with a flint rod and striker and you're good to go. The crumbled mess that remains of these things will be going in the trash.

    Rated4out of5byfromboils a cup of wateri use these with my esbit cookset, instead of the esbit fuel tabs. one nugget will burn about 10-15 min, same as esbit. unlike the fuel tabs, there non-toxic and dont leave a sticky residue. only downsides... the nuggets dont pack as easy and can be a little crumbly.
