    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 Merino Wool Hiking Crew Socksis rated3.2out of5by5.
    Rated5out of5byfromMy favorite socksThese socks have flat toe seams and good cushioning. Most reviewers complained that the tops are too tight, but I cut the top bands off all my socks, so I can't comment on that. But these stay up even without the top band, and I haven't had a problem with them unraveling. I wear a shoe size 5.5 or 6, and the small fits well with room in front to wiggle my toes, which I like. They don't bunch. I've tried SmartWool, Thorlo, Lorpen, Wigwam, Goodhew and more, and these are my favorite. Lorpens are also good but they are a bit tighter in the calf and have a tendency to shrink and become tight in the toe. I've had bad luck with SmartWool in that their sizing is inconsistent and the toe seams can be bothersome. Maybe SmartWool has improved in recent years but I've found my favorite socks so I'm sticking with them. They wash and dry perfectly and they wear well. Sometimes I put them in the dryer but when I can I air dry them because I think they'll last longer that way. I use the top bands as pony tail/bun holders because they're much kinder to hair than anything you can buy in the store.

    Rated5out of5byfromRegularly stop for bargainsThis is by far the best pair of socks I have ever worn. My wife has also joined REI so that we can advantage of the best prices. Happy life, happy wife.

    Rated3out of5byfromcould use a redesignFirst of all, I never wear hiking socks (except toe socks) without liners. Liners are the #1 reason why I don't get blisters. These socks are cushy and the wicking properties of the liner/sock combination keeps my feet free from sweat. These keep my feet warm in winter, and aren't too hot for summer. That said, I have to echo other reviewers... the tops are too, too darn tight! My lower legs/ankles tend to swell and these and the too-tight liners leave deep dents, even if I scrunch them down around my ankles or the outside of my hightop boots. I do not have cankles either and am rather small-boned. I'm about ready to switch to men's in the hope that the tops are looser. I will say the fit around the foot itself is superb and they do not stretch out and bunch up around the foot mid hike (and I have narrow feet). Just please loosen the fit around the ankles REI because this cannot be good for circulation! Despite the too tight ankles, I am still recommending these because I roll the tops over my mids/high tops to take the pressure off my ankles. They still are super cushy and other brands have stretched out/bunched in the foot area mid hike.

    Rated1out of5byfromTerrible socksThese socks cause blisters and they chafe. Thought I was going to have to change my hiking boots until I discovered the problem was the sock. The last time I went snowboarding, the top of these socks were so tight that they cut off circulation, and it took a week for the lines to disappear from my legs.

    Rated2out of5byfrombest for calf less or long legged womenI've used Thorlo hiking socks for years and wanted to see if the REI merino socks would wick any better. I ended up with bad chafing on my ankles. I wear wool without issues, but these are an inch and a half taller than thorlos with a tight band at the top. This hits me in the calf, and if I turn down the socks to avoid a blood clot, its extra tight with too much chafing to wear more than one day. I wear tall boots, so the short socks won't work. Luckily I have a serger so I can trim the top band off and still make these work, but I'll be going back to thorlos unless REI shortens the sock (in the liners, as well)BTW, my legs are long enough that I have to buy "tall" socks in street socks to fit.
