    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 fromStay Away This tasted like a package of dried weeds. Probably one of the most disgusting things I've ever eaten. Although I put the correct amount of water in, and actually let it sit for longer than necessary, the food never fully reconstituted. I couldn't really identify most of the "food" in it. The flavor was horrible. I would feed this to a dog, but not to a human. I had a similar experience with another Backpacker's Pantry meal. Just stay away from this brand in general. Mountain House is the only way to go! I will never buy a Backpacker's Pantry meal again.

    by fromThere are better choices! My wife and I tried out four different Backpacker Pantry meals on a recent trip, and this was not one of the better ones! The curry flavor was bland and uninspiring, and the overall effect was lackluster and barely edible. It was a challenge for us to finish the bag, and if we weren't down to our last meal on the trip (and last bit of food) we'd have fixed up something else and packed out the leftovers. The general consensus was that this has a ways to go to catch up with military issue MRE packets, and that is not a compliment by a long shot.

    by fromNot too good This took too long to prepare; I let it sit the required amount of time, but it was still crunchy. The taste was not very good and me and my son had a hard time getting it all down.

    by fromNot even a hint of curry I love curry. Thought this would taste like curry. It tastes nothing like curry. In fact it tastes like nothing.

    by fromSmelled like multi-vitamin supplements I tried it at home( altitude 300 ft above sea level) to experiment. It smelled like medicine e.g smell that comes from Kirkland multivitamin bottle.Taste was dry. It may have tasted better with some sauce but medicine smell was overpowering.I do not know how other packaged food from backpackers pantry or any other brand taste as this was the first packaged food I tried, so I can't give any comparison. Besides, It is too much amount in one pack. It will be nicer to have a pack with amount of food for one meal for one person. Up side:- It is very easy to make and no cleaning dishes after if your eating straight from inside the pack

    by fromTo much Aroma While this meal tasted okay, it was kind of dry when following the directions. The worst part was I used my cook pot (GSI Minimalist) to rehydrate the meal and it left an awful aroma in it, that night a critter of some sort chewed on the pot, and my coffee tasted like cajun the next day.

    by fromJust very bad. Was trying to branch our from Mountain House and saw this at the store. It was watery. It was bland. The dominant flavor was of celery--it is loaded with it. It was easily the worst meal I've had on the trail in my year plus of backpacking. I am relieved to see that so many people agree with me. I can't speak for the other meals in this line, but stay FAR away from this one!

    by fromabysmal. don't waste your money. Please, do yourself a favor, buy something else. I bought this on the recommendation of REI staff, who normally are spot on, but this was horrible. This was my first time trying Backpacker's Pantry, and it is also my last. Following the directions to the letter, the water did not absorb, and even if it did, the flavor was just terrible. I enjoyed my ramen noodles MUCH more, that cost 20 cents, which is rather sad. A couple others in my group had other Backpacker's Pantry meals, and only one struggled through to eat it all. The others did like I did, and fed it to the fish. The ones with Mountain House enjoyed their meals a lot more, or so they said.
