    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.

    Black Diamond Contact Strap Crampons with ABS Platesis rated5.0out of5by3.
    Rated5out of5byfromWorks great, easy to useI bought these crampons to use on casual (no vertical ice!) routes. Last weekend, I took them up Mount Monadnock in New Hampshire. They worked great both on shallow and steeper areas of the hike. They had good grip on packed snow and on the hard ice near the summit. Very easy to use. I adjusted them and put them on for the first time on the trail without any difficulties. The only issue I had is that they were sharp enough that sometimes I poked holes through the ankles of my snow pants! Guess they're pretty sharp out of the box, and I should walk more carefully. Otherwise, they're great.

    Rated5out of5byfromNo complaints.I use these crampons when microspikes aren't enough for traction. I bought a case to put them in because they are sharp! I have used them occasionally on compact snow and ice for 2 years and they still look good- no rusting or discoloring. I can put them on without removing my mittens- important for a lady with cold fingers! The strap is a little long for me (size 8.5 womens) so I have to loop the strap and tie again so I don't trip on it, but one could cut and seal it to perfect length.

    Rated5out of5byfromCramponsI found these crampons to be easy to fit and adjust. They stayed on well in deep snow and fit my boots great.
