    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.

    Coleman Stainless-Steel Cooler - 54 rated3.0out of5by3.
    Rated2out of5byfromBad LatchesIn the past, this great cooler has demanded a premium price and deserved it. However, it has always had cheap latches that require replacement several times during the life of the cooler. Coleman parts and service was terrific, quickly providing both the cam latch and the handle latch for less than $10. Now however, they have discontinued availability of replacement latches. Happily, Coleman is redesigning the latch system for 2015 models, but is leaving current owners high and dry. I recommend you do not invest in this cooler until the new model is tested and reviewed.

    Rated4out of5byfromTubing masterpieceI love this cooler. Took it tubing last week and it holds 90 beers cold for as long as they can stay in there ;). This has replaced many cheap knock off coolers that I have used in the past. 16# of ice will stay 96 hours on a summer weekend personally tested. My previous cooler "Mr. Wheelie" couldn't last 48 in the same heat. The surface will get hot in the sun but that wont stop it from retaining its temp inside. Recommend the shade if you are looking for long duration of ice +4 days. One thing to note, because there aren't wheels you can hold about 15 more cans of beer in a similar exterior volume.

    Rated3out of5byfromCould be betterFor a long time I wanted a great cooler and I thought this was it. I think I was charmed by the stainless steel out and the history of Coleman coolers, especially this model. Upon First couple of uses, I notice the lid doesn't really lock... Hmm. And it didn't occur to me that this metal beast would actually hold and retain heat. After a few years of average to low use (maybe 3-4 car camping trips a year) the lid hinge broke and the other one is loosening. I had to wedge a nail to hold it together. I finally found the cooler I think that will meet my car camping needs.
