    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.

    A gripping, real-life tale of a soccer team's plane crash in the Andes and one man's struggle to survive.

    • Author: Nando Parrado
    • Softcover; 280 pages; black-and-white photographs
    • Crown Publishers; copyright 2006

    Nando Parrado was unconscious for three days before he woke to discover that the plane carrying his rugby team as well as their family members and supporters to an exhibition game in Chile had crashed somewhere deep in the Andes. He soon learned that many were dead or dying—among them his own mother and sister. Those who remained were stranded on a lifeless glacier with no supplies and no means of summoning help. They struggled to endure freezing temperatures, deadly avalanches and then the devastating news that the search for them had been called off. As time passed and Nando's thoughts turned increasingly to his father, who he knew must be consumed with grief, Nando resolved that he must get home or die trying. Thirty years after the disaster, Nando tells his own story with remarkable candor and depth of feeling. This is more than a riveting tale of true-life adventure: it is a revealing look at life at the edge of death and a meditation on the limitless redemptive power of love.
