    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 fromNot a great design at all... Although it works well as a mosquito net (duh), the 'A' design means that unless you are curled up fetal-style,some part of your body is going to touch the sides allowing mosquitoes to gnaw away at your at their pleasure. Go for the rectangle/square shaped version, which is 100% effective and comfortable - especially in the jungles of Guyana!
