    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.

    Swix FX Waxing Iron is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Help With Keeping Gear Tuned. This iron is great for waxing skis and snowboards. It has a flat hot plate which is great for flat skis. Newer boards and skis which have camber, rocker etc. take more effort as you have to contour all the surfaces. The adjustable temperature allows easy melting of different temperature waxes. All around a great product, packs down small and is easy to carry around on trips.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great with universal waxes The iron does everything it is suppose to do. Quick warm-up time, good temperature regulation, etc. When using the drip method, it's better to tilt the iron towards the front corner - tilting to the rear corner sometimes drips on the iron feet instead of the ski/snowboard base. Have only tried with universal wax, have not yet tried with fluoro waxes. Before using any wax, I always set the iron low and move in small increments until the wax begins to melt on the iron base to avoid reaching the smoke point of the wax, then I applied a decal with temperature setting for each wax I use on the iron.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Probably would spend a little extra I wax 1-2 boards / pairs of skis per week. Works decently for the money. On skis it holds it's temp nicely, but on snowboards it seems to cool down and not recover fast enough, possibly due to the larger surface area of the snowboard drawing the heat from the iron. This leads to having to slow down signficantly when ironing and go back over areas multiple times.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for skis..... It is more difficult to use when waxing a snowboard. But, as soon as I waxed a ski, it worked perfectly. So, for the price, it's a good iron. For snowboards, I'll have to shop around for a heavier duty one that provides more consistent heating to consistently melt the wax. If you're just waxing skis & snow blades... this is perfect. Snowboards... keep shopping or have a lot more patience.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job. The Iron's temp setting dial is difficult to see well enough to be as precise as the wax calls for but I managed and felt it worked well albeit this is the first time I've ever used a waxing iron of any sort. I'd also have liked some hints on preping the ski before ironing (how to best remove old wax etc.) & dripping the melted wax off the corner of the iron. None the less I felt the IRON PERFORMED VERY WELL FOR ITS INTENDED PURPOSE
