    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    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.

    REI Snow and Sand Tent Anchorsis rated4.5out of5by4.
    Rated4out of5byfromToo heavy. Made my own out of TyvekFirst, this is a good quality product. They work as described. However, at four ounces I think they're too heavy for my PCT through hike. I made my own with Tyvek and some 2mm cord I bought at REI. The total weight for my DIY Tyvek solution was one ounce for all four. For a long trek like the PCT, gear weight decisions are important. The Tyvek is not as durable as the material used in this product, but I made extras and sent them to my mail-drops. This is a good product and, typically, no problem bringing them for snow camping or in a sandy environment in the desert.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat for the sandWe have used these anchors 4 different times at Assateague National Park for beach camping. Each time we filled the anchors with deep/wet/cold sand and fit the anchor right where we pulled the sand from, covered them with dry sand, stepped on them for good measure, and have had 100% success. We didn't use any other stakes, only these and our tent has stood strong each time. We have friends going beach camping for the first time this year and will be highly recommending these same anchors for them.

    Rated5out of5byfromSuperior Performance!!!!I bought these anchors to anchor down a instant conopy at South Padre Island this past week. I was not a believer of these anchors till I had a first hand experience with very gusty winds out of the ordinary due to a storm in the gulf of mexico. Long story short the guylines on the tent snapped (2 of them) and sand anchors stood their gound. Guylines from tent were still attached to sand anchors and could not believe what I was seeing. These anchors are so worth. Please invest in these of your planning on going to the beach. Totally awesome.

    Rated4out of5byfromEffective, but not foolproofThese work. I used 6 to stake out a Noah's Tarp 16 (that's huge, BTW) on loose sand, with some easy wind, and nothing budged. They were buried almost to the black ring but i didn't bother to pack the sand down. So concept is good. If you need more holding power, you can always add a second pocket to the same line, add a line, or just pile sand on top. They are so small and light, no big deal to get a few extra. The product image shows cord from both sides of the "pocket" being attached to the black ring -- mine had only one side attached when i got them. It wasn't an obstacle for me, but i could see someone less experienced being pretty confused. Some kind of diagrams showing how the cord is meant to be connected in the field would be a good addition.
