    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.

    Polar FT1 Heart Rate Monitor - Men's is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great inexpensive product. I use this product to help me keep my heart rate in the right range. Very easy to use and has the right feature I want, heart rate. I don't need splits, calories or something that talks to me. Also has time used and current date and time, just enough for me.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost got it I looked at a woman's monitor that tracked calories, but didn't help maintain heart rate in the zone. This unit does a good job alerting the user when you're above/below the zone, but doesn't track calorie burn. Why do you have to double the unit cost to get both these functions?

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple, but it works Very simple device for monitoring your heart rate during exercise. No fancy features or data storage, but it does let you set your max HR and training zones. If you want a no frills HR monitor consider this one. Doubles nicely as a wrist watch.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal for my use Two things that I like: SIMPLICITY--The 1-button operation is excellent for my use. I can set the zone once and for all and never bother with that again. It is easier to remember how many clicks of the button are needed to get my avg and max heart rates than to remember which button to press. EASE OF USE-- This device seems to be less fussy about how wet the pads are than previous devices that I have owned.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from difficult and clunky I had a base level polar a few years ago and thought this would be about the same as all I needed was HR. There is only one button to set any of the times, and zones which is rather annoying. When you start it on HR it starts on default on time and you have to move the strap to the receiver to get it to switch. This is not a problem if it is on your wrist but if it is mounted on the bike it looks a bit odd riding down the road with your chest on the bars. The wrist strap is the cheapest plastic I have ever seen. I have used it so I did not want to send it back but I am likely going to buy at least 1 - 2 levels up from this. Save your money and at least get the next model up.
