    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.

    by fromMax Temp 125 deg F Ordered this online. When I received it I checked it with an infrared thermometer since I wouldn't be using it until next ski season. With the temperature set to maximum the thermometer only read 125 F. Will be returning.

    by fromYou Get What You Pay For... I used to Alpine race and have used many wax irons in many price ranges. This product confirms that you get what you pay for. The only good things that I can say about it is that it's inexpensive and that the base has a fairly wide profile that is nice with wide skis. The bad... *Very thin aluminum base making it very difficult to regulate the temperature *The base it very rough. So much so that wax tends to burn on the base and it creates "drag" while waxing. It should have been polished and it annoyed me enough to polish it myself. *Temperature is labeled in Celsius...Not a deal breaker but for me, annoying Bottom line for me is, for a very recreational skier,snowboarder that waxes a few times a season. It'll work, not well, but will work. I doubt that for anyone who waxes regularly that this will last very long. It is now made durably. If I had paid full price I would have returned it and spent more on a higher end iron. On clearance, I'll get my use out of it.

    by fromPerfect 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.

    by fromDoes 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

    by fromWorks well The iron did a good job of melting and spreading different waxes. I used it to wax 4 sets of skis (a pair for everyone in my family) in one session. The iron maintained a steady temperature and was easy to use.
