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 nktafromSurvival Cord Bracelet Anything ButGreat concept for a bracelet with multitude of potential practical uses, but the plastic buckle broke after three days. Certainly a nice addition to outdoor gearbox with its potential utility but buckle needs re-work.

by cltinseattlefromSurvival BraceletThese Bison Design survival bracelets are cool. True, there are better quality bracelets out there on the internet. True, there are dozens of YouTube videos and internet sites that can teach you how to make your own. Especially for those of us old enough to remember macrame or like to practice knot tying, you can buy 100' of paracord in all kinds of colors and make dozens of them. But if you don't want to do all of that, these bracelets are cool, seem sturdy to me, and I think they look awesome. I would never depend on a bracelet for survival and will still always have paracord in my "10 essentials" hiking survival supplies.

by Captain & WenchfromBut how do i undo it?This is a cool looking and very functional bracelet. I wear it all the time and am looking forward to showing it off when i use it. The only bad thing (besides only having one color) is that I've looked on REI's website and bison designs website and there are no instructions on how to tie it back together as a bracelet. I'm sure they're worth another [$] if you really had to use it but a reusable bracelet would be nice.

by JAWZfromGreat Quality and for a Great CauseNot only is this bracelet made of high quality material it's also part of a great cause. For every bracelet purchased Bison Designs donates a portion to the Wounded Warriors Project for Veterans who have been wounded in service. I've actually bought a few for friends as stocking stuffers.

by Sir Ramius the ScruffyfromA Decent VersionThe paracord bracelet worked fine. The clasp was falling apart by the time I actually used it in the field. The previous reviewer commented on how nice it would be to re-tie it, and there are a number of websites that will teach you how to do that - or you could talk to someone who used to be in the military.I wouldn't recommend this to a friend because there are other, higher quality alternatives in the marketplace. REI doesn't want me to reference other retailers, so let's just put it this way: it rhymes with shmurvival shtraps. They will replace any used bracelet/dog collar/watch band they make [...] Also, perhaps an even better deal is just creating one yourself. Google it.
