    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.

    Belknap's Waterproof Grand Canyon River Guide - 3rd Editionis rated5.0out of5by1.
    Rated5out of5byfromOUTSTANDING!!!In the summer of 2012 my wife & I participated in a guided rafting trip through 226 miles of the Grand Canyon from Lees Ferry to Diamond Creek. During the entire trip, this waterproof book was a constant companion. The book was provided by the rafting company we went with, and I'll admit that before the trip I didn't expect the book to be all that interesting. However, I was soon singing its praises. The mile-by-mile river map is one of the best touring maps I've come across, as it's LOADED with tidbits of information that don't overwhelm the reader with too many details. Moreover, it's very easy to track one's progress down the river, as virtually all rapids are clearly labeled with location, class, drop, and length. Likewise, other features such as points of geologic interest, archaeological sites, historical sites, etc. are plotted too. The write-up on the canyon's formation and its overall geology is excellent and very well illustrated, as are the sections on plant & animal life and human history. There's even a great section full of simple tips on how to improve your outdoor photography while in the canyon and on the water. I ended up reading the ENTIRE book cover to cover while on our trip, and it REALLY enriched my experience. By trip's end, the cover had come off, but that's just a battle scar to be proud of! Other than that, this book survived all 226 miles of rapids and flat water. It spent each day of the trip being soaked and dried, soaked and dried, soaked and dried. And it was nearly washed overboard at least three times in three of the BIG rapids. For two weeks after the trip I combed back through the book's maps and my notes that I made therein while on the water. This book has proven itself to be one of the best travel companions I've ever had. Finally, this is not a technical "river runner's guide." You'll need other books & maps for that. Rather, this is a great book to supplement a Grand Canyon River Trip!
