    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.

    Rated5out of5byfromRight pack, right price.I bought this pack for my 12 year old son. I like that it is adjustable as he grows. Like all REI products, it is high quality and seems extremely durable. The pack has a multitude of adjustment straps to ensure the load stays put.

    Rated5out of5byfromVery satisfied with purchaseMy 14 year old daughter used it on a 4 nights backcountry trip and was very pleased with it. It's big enough, will be able to accommodate her growth in the next few years, has many features and the top works well as a day pack. I believe it will be too big for 11-13 year old.

    Rated4out of5byfromThis one was just rightBought one for my daughter and my son. Both are in scouting and enjoy our camping trips. There is plenty of room and I am surprised at how well they can carry the weight with this pack. I hated my pack when I was younger, but my children love theirs. They also love the fanny pack cover that comes with the pack.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat Travel Pack...Backpacks have come a long way since my husband and I bought our REI packs 20 years ago! We got this for our petite 11 year old daughter to carry her belongs during out 3 week trip to Costa Rica. Much to my surprise, she used it without a complaint. The adjustable, supports made it comfortable to wear for extended periods of time in all types of weather. The three access points made it easy to get to the items inside. She really liked not having to pull everything out from the top. There is plenty of room for her to grown with the pack. The only downside was the lack of color choices (not looking for hot pink, but maybe another choice besides moss green for tween girls would have been nice). My only regret is that my husband's and my REI backpacks are still going strong after 20 years of consistent use... because the new versions are REALLY nice!
