    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.

    Benchmade 530 Serrated Locking Knife is rated 4.8889 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent everyday carry knife! This is probably the best everyday folder you'll ever want in your pocket. It is so slim and so light (less than two ounces) yet it still has a 3 1/2" blade that is very sharp. Be advised though, out of the box this knife is difficult to open. The thumb studs (which are also ambidextrous, a plus) are small to reduce weight and slim the profile are very hard on your fingers. I oiled the knife and loosened the screw that the blade pivots on and it made a world of difference. Once you do that this becomes a 4 star knife not a 5 star. I still think Benchmade has better studs in there parts drawer and the black paint on the pocket clip flakes off and the draw string carry bag is just silly. Also, with any knife you should NEVER USE IT AS A PRY TOOL, especially this one because it is fairly high carbon and has spear point that goes all the way back to the handle to save weight.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great EDC Got this guy as a edc with my yearly refund. Nice and thin and doesn't get in the way or catch on things. Blade holds an edge well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect pocket knife The perfect little pocket knife that disappears into a pocket for common tasks around the house and camping. Easy to open, very sharp, and hasn't shown any wear in several months of frequent use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small, lightweight and razor sharp I bought this knife because I came home from my last backpacking trip on Isle Royale and realized that I never once used my ancient (and heavy) Shrade buck knife. That thing is a beast. I wanted to get a new knife that wouldn't be too much dead weight in my pack. I found this knife at my local REI and I have never regretted the purchase. I have never before been the kind of person to always carry a pocket knife, but the 530 is so streamlined and light that I basically now carry it with me all the time. It has become a part of my essentials like keys and wallet. As other reviewers have pointed out the black belt clip does get scratched and dinged up over time, but as a friend of mine likes to say, "It gives it character." I am left-handed and have never bothered to switch the belt clip. I keep the knife clipped to my left pocket with the handle inside. I have used this knife so many times in so many ways and it stays very sharp. If you are looking for a slim, lightweight, and SHARP knife, get this one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, Efficient, Durable Started out my AT thru-hike with this knife and it surely would have lasted all 2186 miles if I hadn't lost it midway. Was one of the best pieces of gear I had, lightweight, functional. No need for all those extra tools. An excellent blade.
