    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.

    Sea to Summit Pocket Trowel is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, but could be a tad better I bought the aluminum one, mostly because given options for better quality - I go for it. This one is well built and goes in the camping box tool set to use for camp fire pits (like moving embers), digging small holes...and like some have said-possibly for cooking uses (after being cleaned of course). One thing that dismays me is how manufacturers don't catch obvious shortcomings to make them better. In this case, the push buttons are not shaped correctly and my fingers/fingernails could not push them far enough in to release them. Push buttons are at the shovel end and the handle end. I don't like having to use a key or tool to do that. Liking the tool, but not the buttons, I used a fine metal file to file down the button heads and also to round them better. Why didn't the company do this? The button should be more rounded so when depressing, they release better. I also noticed the holes inside the handle had small burrs around the hole, so I used a small round file to remove those. At the end of this, my buttons work much better. But the manufacturer should have understood this in their process and made changes. Most people don't have files nor interest in re-working to make their tool better - the manufacturer should do it. But, mine is now much better and I love it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as functional as it appears I bought this trowel, despite its high price, for a few simple reasons: light weight, novel design and great satisfaction with previous Sea to Summit products. After using it, I was highly disappointed. It is very lightweight and compact, which is nice. But as soon as I took it out of the package I noticed that it is not nearly as sturdy or well crafted as any of the other StS products I've bought. The handle is well-machined, lightweight aluminum: great! The shovel blade part, however, is blunt, dull plastic, with a flat tip. Not such a great design for a shovel blade, especially when trying to dig into hard, rocky soil. The two pieces are attached by a small metal button. The result is pretty flimsy when you extend it and try to actually use it - again, even more so when you're trying to dig into rocky soil with a blunt plastic tip! Much more of a pain than a simple $5 old school 1-piece plastic trowel. Sad part is that I will now hesitate before buying another Sea to Summit product, which I never did before.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely difficult to close Although it would expand and click in without too much difficulty, trying to push the button in to retract the handle was nearly impossible and when I was able to do so, I jammed or cut my fingers. It became intimidating to use.
