    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.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    by fromwith one big caveat This is a clever, robust, trustworthy laser signaling device with one major flaw. Not its fault but worth considering: the beam jitters in one plane, you move it slowly in the other, blanketing an area where you expect eyes (or reflective material) to be located. The result at that end is momentary bright red winks, *but not in a mechanically consistent pattern*. When I've tested this with friends they report that, if they happen to be looking directly at it, they can see the red winks at night, but nothing about it signifies distress. It looks anthropogenic, in fact it's diagnostically a laser beam, but it looks like random screwing around, not a call for help. I, of course, apprise my companions of the import but signaling strangers is likely to prove fruitless because if they notice at all, and that's far from certain, they're as likely to curse and turn away as try to come find you. To guide someone looking for you, or find someone you're looking for, if you already know pretty precisely where to look and have unobstructed line of sight, it can help, otherwise, including anytime during daylight, it's pretty close to useless, and extremely expensive. On the other hand, it will neither ignite when you don't want it to, nor fail to ignite when you need it to, alarms no one at security gates, and testing it is great fun .

    by fromPersonal Safety I bet my life on this product. I live in Alaska and attracting attention visually is the best means of getting assistance. This non pyrotechnic device is in my opinion is the best signal I have ever seen. I can carry it in my carry on baggage like a back pack and have no problem going through security. I prefer the Rescue Laser Light to the magnum as the size is smaller with 40 hrs of signal time. I wonder why it is not carried in every department in every outlet at REI. It Is a WINNER Kristin
