    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.

    The SteriPEN Safe Water purifier system is an all-in-one purifier kit for making great-tasting potable water while hiking the trail or traveling the world.

    • Safe Water system includes the SteriPEN Classic purifier, water bottle prefilter, 1-liter BPA-free wide-mouth water bottle, SteriPEN carrying case and instruction manuals
    • Ultraviolet (UV-C) light rays safely sterilize clear water by destroying 99.99% of viruses, bacteria and protozoa, including Giardia and Cryptosporidium
    • SteriPEN protects you from risks that cause botulism, cholera, dysentery and typhoid, just to name a few
    • But if clear water is not available, no worries—the SteriPEN 4-micron prefilter clears particulates and debris from water
    • Prefilter fits the included Nalgene BPA-free water bottle and other bottles with 63mm wide-mouth openings; pour source water through filter, and clean water enters bottle
    • Then use the SteriPEN purifier to treat the water; just press a button and gently agitate the water with a quick stir
    • SteriPEN purifies 16 fl. oz. of water (cold or warm) in less than a minute or 32 fl. oz. in a minute and a half
    • Small size fits most containers—use it in cups, mugs, water bottles and canteens
    • SteriPEN turns itself off once ultraviolet treatment is complete; can be used up to 8,000 times!
    • Watertight seals keep water away from the electronics; rubberized inset grips for secure handling in wet conditions
    • Low-power indicator tells you when batteries need replacing; twist-off cap for easy battery access
    • Long used by municipal water districts and bottling companies, low-level UV-C light treats water safely, and unit's light will not damage eyes or skin
    • Purify 200 glasses with 4 lithium AA batteries (batteries sold separately); SteriPEN does not recommend the use of alkaline batteries, as they provide very few treatments
    • SteriPEN recommends the use of name-brand lithium or nickel-metal hydride rechargeable batteries
    • Average weight of purifier is 6.4 oz. with lithium batteries; weight empty is 3.7 oz.
    • Only use SteriPEN independent of prefilter when clear water is available, as cloudy, sediment-laden water hinders effectiveness

    Since late 2008, all SteriPEN water sensors feature twice the electrode voltage of older models. The increased electrical current flow allows proper function in water with low conductivity such as snowmelt and even mineral-free distilled water.
