    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.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible By far the worst freeze dried meal i have had. I have liked almost everything else from backpackers pantry but this was terrible. Chickpeas+rice+spicy stuff+ not much else. Could only eat 1/3rd of it before giving up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good!! I am so confused by the folks that said this was awful. Perhaps they hadn't had Chana Masala before? This meal was delicious. Very flavorful without being too spicy. We added a big can of chicken and split between the two of us. Really tasty! Will definitely buy every time I go backpacking from now on. Mmmmm!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not too good. I'm not normally one to write reviews, but I thought backpacking food deserves to be reviewed as you will likely not have other options in the backcountry. First off, let me begin by saying "I knew better." I've found that rice dishes normally don't rehydrate too well and this one followed suit. I let it sit for the required 12 minutes and upon opening the bag, the smell was ok but the rice and chickpeas did not rehydrate well. The rice was very grainy and the chickpeas were tough. I ate about 6 bites before I bailed out. The flavor was poor at best. My only saving grace was I prepared this at home before taking it to the field, and I am glad I did. Let me finish by saying Indian cuisine is my second favorite cuisine and I have had Chana Masala on numerous occasions. This one is surely a disappointment.
