    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 fromComing up SHORT... I was expecting a fairrly complete guide to the Bay Area climbing. While this guide does indeed have quite a list of locations and problems, many areas information is WOEFULLY incomplete. The discriptions of locations arent all that great. Many areas would benefit from an actual list of problems and locations. Salt Point is a perfect example. 100+ problems and only one page in the book with almost no info on how to find the climbs. I'd also LOVED to see a mention of all the Poison Oak at Super Slab being noted in the guide. Instead it just mentioned bushwaking up to the rock. Boo. This guide would be VASTLY improved by limiting the number of areas listed and going into more detail for each. As I said above, this is really best used as a REFERNCE for most of the areas it includes. I found myself going elsewhere to research areas and locations when this guide routinely fell short.
