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 fromToo Small !! I had one of these years ago...and vaguely remembered it being small - but thought "what are the chances that 10yrs later they haven't fixed that?" Well - they haven't! These containers are TOO SMALL for virtually all commercial eggs that you find in grocery stores (maybe the smallest size fits, but the majority of sizes don't). Such an easy thing to fix - such a shame they don't fix it. Make sure you either KNOW your eggs or small - or don't buy this :)

by fromToo small Not only is the Egg Holder too small for USA supermarket eggs, it is too small even for the eggs we bought in little towns in Mexico, Central America, the Galapagos, and French Polynesia. We even tried alternating pointy end up, pointy end down, but they just wouldn't fit. It's 2010. Any hen laying 'small or medium' eggs will find herself battered and fried. The basic design is good enough but it needs to be bigger to be any use.

by fromDoesn't fit American eggs! If you can find small or medium eggs, this might work. I went to 3 grocery stores trying to find the smallest possible eggs, and still could only fit 3 eggs in the six-egg holder. And they were so jammed in that two of them broke. Time to update your mold, Coghlan's.

by fromToo Small For Standard Eggs I've used the 'dozen' egg holder from Coghlan for years--camping and canoe trips. The cups are too small for the large size eggs which are the common size in stores. Additionally, the 4 plastic tabs at the bottom--which are supposed to cushion the eggs are too stiff, and occasionally puncture the shell. I usually have an egg or 2 break. OK for hard boiled. This is a great concept, Coghlan should make the cups larger and redesign the cushioning! The only reason I would recommend this is that I've not found another style.

by fromGreat Idea just not for USA eggs. Its a great idea, but just not ideal for USA eggs. I had to really hunt at the supermarket for the smallest eggs to fit inside the container. I eventually gave up and returned it back to rei. If you do use it, please put it inside a zip-lock baggie, or hard boil the eggs, otherwise its a mess.

by fromgets the job done this container does a good job at protecting the eggs. i have fallen a few times with all 6 eggs in my pack inside the holder and thought for sure they would be broken but was surprised when i opened the container up at camp to find 0 broken eggs

by frommmm, eggs! Why didn't they put the shock absorbers on both sides (the little plastic tabs that have some give)?? Baffles me, but it probably would've saved me a couple eggs (put this inside a ziplock bag incase one breaks!). Great design otherwise, keeps my eggs safe, so I can have a delicious breakfast or two while out on the trail. Probably couldve used a bit thinner plastic and saved considerable weight..

by fromNo more broken eggs This has been great to use for family car camping, and canoeing, just put the eggs in the container, toss in cooler, and no worries of broken eggs or soggy egg cartons. Never had a problem getting eggs to fit. The only thing that could make it better would be some way to put a gasket in the lip so it seals out water from getting in and if for some reason a egg broke, that it would leak out. But for me it worked great.
