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.

Rated5out of5byTimothy HartlefromExcellent CordI use this product for anything that requires strength, good looks or effective knotting with small diameter cord. The tight braid provides body and good feel for the cord's small 3mm diameter. The polyester sheath provides excellent protection from UV radiation and, together with the nylon core, a great breaking strength of 400 lbs. It melts well to prevent loose ends from fraying. The range of colors is useful. For the price, you can't go wrong.

Rated5out of5byBu5hwackerfromUsed to string up a siltarp shelterTied up great and stayed put. The surface helped it to stay tied up even with the high winds we experienced for 9 days at 7000ft and 1 severe thunderstorm. Great cord.

Rated3out of5bySoCalBillfromIt's not paracord!I typically use 550 cord but couldn't find any in REI when I needed some cord on the fly. I use cord for tying knots to secure ridge lines, tarps, tents, items in camp, etc. 550 Cord is much easier to work with. While this product is tough, it is very thin and easily tangles. I keep my daisy chained to minimize tangles. It's also rough on the hands if you aren't using gloves - ultra thin tough cord will burn your hands with heavy use. A good product at a reasonable price but if you have the time to order 550 cord, it's far superior.

Rated5out of5byDunes and WadisfromGood stuffGood stuff, as advertised. I use this cord around the campsite: rigging hammocks and tarps, hanging food, replacement shoelaces, etc., etc. In fact, I'm buying more of it today.

Rated5out of5bySpadefootfromYou Need This. We All Need This.I didn't know how badly I needed this until I got some. It holds all life together and it comes in gorgeous colors.
For starters, it keeps your tent from blowing away in high winds.
It's an inexpensive gift for friends and family; everyone I give it to says the same thing: How did I get by without it?
