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.

Comments about Werner Cyprus Carbon Paddle:
I got this through a local outfitter not quite 2 years ago. REI does not offer narrow shaft and shorter lengths which I can't understand because I see as many women paddlers as men and some are as short as I am. Some have told me that carbon paddles tend to be brittle, but this paddle has been through a lot and has received a lot of punishment and clashes with rocks, trunks and other objects I failed to avoid. Since getting the paddle I've paddled Gulf Bays, narrow Florida rivers, some with sharp turns, fast running rivers in Alberta and Wisconsin, class I and II rapids, shallow gravelly fast moving rivers, lakes with swells and waves -- the paddle has come through for me. Paddled upper Missouri river for 35 miles in one day and didn't suffer from paddle fatigue -- no shoulder, torso aches. The downside may be that carbon paddles conduct electricity and may be more hazardous in open water during a lightening storm. That said, I should carry a non carbon spare paddle, lightening storms being common in Florida. Have other shorter paddles for river running, but I much prefer this one. Werner has a shorter wide river paddle in a narrow shaft, but I would have to special order it from Werner directly and didn't have the cash, so I purchased a cheaper river paddle for my river kayak. I am not an advanced kayaker, but neither am I a casual/recreation --paddle on average more than once a week, 8-10 miles per paddle on average. And yes, I'd like to have that special order Werner river paddle one day.
