    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 fromInsta-Gater, Insta-Hit! This bike rack is easy to install and use. I would like to see the plastic straps that slip into the tail gate replaced with something more durable and strong. These would be easy to cut if someone wanted to take your rack. To prevent this I secure it to my truck bed using a cable and lock.

    by fromGreat Idea, Cheap Implimentation The ratcheting mechanism that tighten the two tailgate straps to the rack are each fastened to the rack with a single rivet. The rivet on one strap failed upon installing the rack on my first return trip. Luckily this did not fail in transit for me. It would have been disastrous to have my bike flung out of the truckbed into the path of oncoming traffic or a pedestrian, or some one riding along the road on a bicycle. This product could be modified to replace the rivet with a through-bolt -- but I decided to return the product since I do not wish others to see me using it and therefore thinking the product in its stock configuration is safe.

    by fromSimple and Sturdy This rack installs in a minute (seriously). Great design, easy to use. Holds bike securely. I love the fact that I'm done removing front wheels!!! My bike is safe in the bed of the truck rather than risk the chance of damage from a rear end collision (as with hitch racks).
