    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.

    by fromAwfull taste (blueberry/pomegranate)... I've been using the old GU gels and the new ones for 5+ years and I have been very satisfied (I just want the big refil packs back!). Now that I just got the chomps and tried them (at home) I feel I can describe them in one word: awful! No idea if all tastes are the same, but blueberry-pomegranate is all I bought. Being too sour can be tolerated, but the texture, the taste, the aftertaste... Even if they provide better power than the gels I cannot convince myself to eat them again (will stick to GU gel). I recently tried Powerbar's GelBlasts and they are a lot better.

    by fromSticks to your teeth it was my first time to try it since I'm normally using gu gels. I saw it on sale and wanted to try it instead of gels because gel usually makes fingers sticky after you eat it. Taste of strawberry chomps was ok , I didn't feel any immediate boost but I did just 10K run that day so it might be too short to tell. The main problem for me was that chomps were sticking to my teeth (I don't like gummy candies for the same reason) but I do have a lot of crowns which makes it happen. I wish it could work for me since I'd rather have my fingers clean without sticky residue gels leave on my fingers.

    by fromNot bad, sticks to my teeth I use it before and during my runs. For short ones I have one bite before to keep me going until night dinner when running after work. During long runs take one every 30-40 min. I would prefer chomps to gels because they won't make your fingers sticky but they do stick to my teeth so I'm not ready to replace completely my gels with chomps yet. It seems they provide energy although it's not obvious as with gu gel (especially with gu roctane). Taste is rubber like, I'm not into chewing candies in general but it's OK with me. I would certainly try it if you never tried it before.

    by fromGu Chomps I often like eating chews instead of gels -- they're easier to eat and easier to pace small amounts during long rides. Gu Chomps aren't bad, the flavors are decent but very strong. I find that the flavors linger too long in my mouth, which in and of itself isn't a bad thing, but it doesn't always work if I'm drinking something other than plain water (so I have to coordinate the flavors of my chews AND my Cytomax drink?). I like the taste of Shot Bloks much more -- not bland, just not so strong. However, I really like that Gu Chomps have the amino blend, so I prefer the Chomps for longer, more intense rides. It's hard to open the package during a ride, so I have to remember to open before or during a stop. But it is nice that they're in a bag, unlike the stack of Shot Bloks.

    by fromget the BB-Pom Out of all the companies that sell gummy-type items, I like the GU chomps best. They go down easy (if swallowed accidently during hard efforts you won't choke), are tasty, and provide sustained energy. The strawberry tastes bad, but the improved version of the BB-Pom is good. Haven't tried other flav's yet. Good enough that sometimes I eat one or two pieces for desert or for a snack.

    by fromNot the best I've tasted Bought the orange and tasted one of my friend's strawberry. Liked the strawberry better. These are definitely better tasting than gels, but still have some of the taste of gels. I much prefer the taste of Honey Stinger Fruit Smoothies, but I wonder if they provide the same boost as the GU.

    by fromNot bad I have been experimenting with different energy gels and chews. I have a hard time with the texture of the gels and find these to be a great substitute. I prefer the chomps to shot bloks which seem larger, stickier, and have a weird salty taste. I wouldn't have these as a snack, but for what they are they are good.

    by fromgood taste and boost I have used the GU Chomps (Blueberry flavor) a number of times before and during mountain biking runs. They actually taste very good and provide me with a nice energy boost. The only downside is they are not as fast or easy to eat as gels. 4 pieces per serving requires me to stop my bike and eat them where as with a gel I tape em to my bike rip em and eat on the go. These would be very good for hikers or something of that nature.
