    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 fromgood concep, poor construction The flexibility is great as I have everything from young girls to large adults use it. I had to redrill the snap holes and other reviewers on other sites have mentioned similar issues. I would recommend it with the warning that the attachments might not fit as delivered.

    by fromGreat idea, bad execution I really love the flexibility that this paddle could offer, but I have had to return it twice. And now I am going to have to look for a different paddle. What you get is a paddle with a blade on one side and 3 separate pieces that fit on the other side: another blade so that you can use the paddle for kayaking or two different lengths that extend the shaft and adds a handle so that you can use it for standup paddleboarding (so people of different heights could use this paddle). Well, the attachments are supposed to snap into place, but the holes that the pin comes through (standard paddle connection pins) are not drilled in the right spot. On my first order only one of the attachments actually fit properly. I returned it and the second paddle was no better. In fact none of the attachments fit properly. They will attach, but the pin cannot pop out and hold the attachment piece in place. So I would be weary about take it out in stronger current. I was really excited about using this paddle, but cannot in conscience recommend it to orders, sadly.

    by fromAdd some fun to your SUP workout I purchased the Taboo adjustable SUP paddle to allow other family members/friends with different heights to use the SUP and also have a double-bladed paddle to use for a kneeling or sitting SUP workout. Provides great fun and adds variety to a core and shoulder workout on the SUP. I recommend adding some brightly colored paint or tape to the paddle to make it more visible to others when it's floating in ocean surf or lakes.
