    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.

    WTB Slickasaurus Tire - 26 x 1.5 is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tire--stunned by some reviews Absolutely marvelous tires for my Toronto commute! I'm using the 700c version on a steel Lemond hybrid. NOT one flat in a couple of years of use through snow, salt, rain, sun, humidity, hard braking, broken glass, street debris, potholes, and heavy loads. And, they refuse to wear! The tread is unbelievably robust. I say this as a 175 lb fast rider, who used to carry around a preschooler and other loads. Stable, smooth, fast rolling, bombproof. I'm not sure I can find any fault but one: they're a lot heavier than some little Kevlar 23mm ride. I really wouldn't want these when touring. But for the daily grind? They're simply fabulous. Very sorry to see bad reviews for this superb tire.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just like a flat I started training for a 150K charity ride and put these slicks on my MTB. For the first 200 miles these tires were such an awesome upgrade. However 4 weeks later I ended up with a flat on the back tire. Like others I was disappointed to get a flat tire so soon after purchasing these tires. It was a sharp triangular piece of glass that barely stuck into the tube but went all the way through the tire. After changing out the tube and filling to 80psi there is a lump in the tire. I now need to go buy another one before the 150K charity ride this coming weekend.
