    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.

    Burley Nomad Cargo Bike Trailer is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rolling Pack Mule I love my little yellow mule. I researched this trailer for a months before pulling the trigger and buying it. I wanted something to carry groceries, carry the recycling, to carry camping gear and everything else for touring, and to carry just about anything else I would need to carry. After putting just under 600 miles on the trailer I have to say it has performed beyond my expectations. I haven't pulled the Nomad off-road, but on the streets of Indianapolis, country back-roads, bike trails, and greenways my little pack mule has rolled along with no problems. Fully loaded, it offers very little resistance once I get rolling, and while I can tell it's behind me when going uphill it doesn't feel like it's pushing or pulling me around. I have seen reviews here and other places that mention the trailer's width as being a problem; I haven't really seen this. It is a few inches wider than standard road handlebars, but with my trekking bars the my little pack mule trails in the same "footprint" as my cockpit. You do have to be aware of where the trailer is in relation to curbs, and other obstacles, but this is a small learning curve and I found it was something I very quickly adapted to. As for cars, the trailer trails four inches off center to the bike's left-- if a car is that close to you its mirror would hit you anyway, and, as other reviewers have noted, the Nomad's high visibility seems to make drivers give you a wider berth when passing. Due to its design the trailer packs easily, and in an easily accessible way, which I simply love, especially when touring. I have considered getting the rack attachment for the Nomad, but haven't really needed it. The only downside I can see to the Nomad's cargo capacity is that with so much room it would be easy to pack more than you need to, but this seems to be more of an issue of one's self-discipline than with trailer design. I have pulled up to 40 lbs with no problems. The Nomad aslo hitches and un-hitches quite easily even when fully loaded without making the bike unstable which is a big plus over panniers. I would not only recommend the Nomad to a friend (which I have done several times) but recommend it to complete strangers (which I have done several times.)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent We camp with an rv. This is our wood getter, grocery hauler. This little trailer is very well made. Light weight, sturdy and compact when torn down. I really like it. I would recommend this trailer. It is relatively expensive, but it is of very high quality.
