    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.

    Yakima SkyBox Pro 16s Roof Box is rated 4.125 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great added storage 2012 Subaru Legacy Living in Elk Grove/Sacramento we plan trips up to South Lake Tahoe. During winter we would take our Subaru Legacy for the AWD rather than the FWD Honda Odyssey minivan. Since the Subaru doesn't have as much cargo capacity as the Odyssey I looked at getting the roof top cargo box as an alternate solution. After much reasearch I found this to be the best one out there in terms of price, size (in relation to the car) and storage capacity. I have a couple bike racks that i left up there but during trips in the snow i dont think i would be doing much bike riding. If it decided to i could take one bike rack down and just slide the Sky box over further to allow the bike pedals to clear. I am very happy with the box. Even during spirited driving I hardly hear it up there. I did loose about 1 MPG during normal driving though. It does take two people to load the box on top of the car though but it's not too bad. I could probably manage the job if I laid a heavy moving blanket down. The way the box gets secured to the bars is top notch. Much easier that the Thule box I have used in the past. Once it's locked in, it's not going anywhere. I would recommend this to anyone. Especially Subaru Legacy owners looking for extra cargo carrying room.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware of Yakima's online fit guide Beware of Yakima's online vehicle fit guide. I have a 2013 Toyota Matrix with factory roof racks. using their online fit guide, I found the skybox pro 16s would fit my vehicle. I ordered the product online and picked up at the Seattle store (staff were great!). I installed on my roof, not thinking to check if my hatch would open (screaming child in the car, just wanted to get in and drive so he would fall asleep). i discovered when I got home to Canada, that the hatch only opens about a foot before it contacts the box. I have contacted Yakima and their service has been subpar. Yakima informed that I should have read the hatch interference guideline. I was looking to Yakima to offer a solution to my problem as I need the box and returning is not an option. Yakima's website states "Our dedicated Fit Team works year-round testing our racks on new vehicles". The Matrix has not been changed from the 2009 model year, I am sure other matrix owners will also have experienced a similar problem. I am disappointed that Yakima has not tested that this rack will actually fit the vehicle. I had brought this issue to Yakima's attention after I purchased the box in November and there website still displays that the skybox (as well as other large boxes), will fit the vehicle. Very disappointed with Yakima, I will no longer support the company. The box itself is great. Yakima customer service is terrible. Advertisement is false.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Listen up Hello Honda Pilot owners it is for you that I wrote this review specifically. I own a 2012 Honda Pilot - so if you have anything from 2009 to now you're with me. I have a growing family, and I wanted to put a box up top of the Pilot that would give us the space without killing MPG, look nice, and be a quality product. Well, if you've got a Pilot you've realized that your limited, the roof span longitudinally (that is - length wise) is short. So here's the deal - if you want the lift gate to open without hitting this storage box - and there is no other that will work better in any other configuration, just try it - then get the Yakima Whispbar S17 kit with the Honda factory rails and put this box up on top. Flat out works. I can open my liftgate and I have about a half inch of clearance, and that's all I need! It opens! I'm convinced that after my research there is no better solution for the Pilot. You NEED the Yakima Whispbar S17 kit, it puts the box up higher than the Honda factory crossbars, trust me, it matters.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it. Bought this to load my bulkies... sleeping bags, pillows... and other things that take up a lot of space in the car, but are relatively light weight. Have driven in heavy rain and wind without incident... or leak. It's relatively quiet at highway speeds. Beats zippered bags. Locks securely. Will travel coast to coast soon. Happy to have this on my roof.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for This was our first cargo box. Was looking for a cargo box to fit our 2013 Outback, and through research, was directed to this model. It was just as advertised. Fit well on the stock roof rack. Appreciated the ability to load both sides, as well as the included cargo net. Took it on family vacation to the beach, and it was easy to load and carried everything that I thought it would. The finish is nice and looked good on the silver finish of our Outback. Very happy with our purchase, so far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Large SUV We have a large SUV, an Infiniti QX56. However, we have three kids and take our 100lbs Golden Retriever with us everywhere, when we travel. So we needed the room. This was perfect! Easy to place on top and secure, takes less than a few minutes. Being able to open from both sides is a major plus.
