    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.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    by fromPerfect for securing guylines I use it to secure guy lines on my REI Quarterdome T2. It's easy and stays secure. It helps you keep the rainfly taut. Only downside is that it's small and painted black so it's hard to find it at night.

    by fromGreat little gadget My first experience with these was with a tarp shelter in the Nevada desert. The tighteners made it very easy to get the rope tensions just right, and they held tight through extremely high winds.

    by fromPerfect fit for our need! We used these recently to set up clothes lines and and sunscreen when camping though I can imagine many uses for them. They are lightweight and easy to use.

    by fromKeeping it simple - and strong When going to Baja you MUST bring equipment to prevent exposure. Setting up a 4 season tent is the ticket and this little device kept our canvas tent secure when the North winds picked up. I bougt 4 of these gems and wish I had more however I am positive without them we would of woke up to a folded over, wind blown tent on our heads in the middle of the night. The 4 additional, easiliy set up, guylines did the trick and I'll be picking up more soon.

    by fromDynamic! This figure 9 worked great when setting up my tarp on a recent camping trip. It really made setup and take down much easier.

    by fromGreat Gadget! I'm not a knot person, so I decided to try these out. What a neat little gadget! The alligator end accepts a rope quite simply, and allows you to cinch it down to achieve tension. The other end attaches a loose end of rope using a different method, or it can attach mid-span by pulling a loop of rope through. There are many ways to deploy this device, the included instructions show a few variations. Best part, no struggling to untie knots! This works great for setting up a clothesline in camp or cinching guy out lines on a tent or tarp. Price and weight are negligible for the utility.

    by fromFool proof These are great for tightening down lines on tent flies - once I saw my boyfriend's setup used these, I had to have them -- and they're easy to use/idiot proof.

    by fromSort Of Depressing, Really. Forty-five-plus years after being a Boy Scout I had to look up my bowline and taughtline hitch knots. The bowline is easy but I still could not get my TLH's to be consistant and pretty. I felt like a real outdoorsy kinda guy again. I was curious about these tensioners and bought four for my tent. They are amazing! But I don't feel as macho as I did when I tied my knots. Oh well...
