    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.

    Elie Strait 120 Kayak is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from First experience with Elie Strait 120 I just brought this boat home last night and took it for the first time today for a 4 hour paddle on flat water. It's beautiful and tracks well, with good maneuverability but is tippier than I was led to believe. The weight is not bad though I can't lift it to my car (sedan) carrier on my own. The rear handle to carry the boat is awkwardly placed and made it fairly uncomfortable for the 500 yd hike up and down a hill. The boat kept bumping my thigh.I am a middle aged woman. I would not recommend this for a novice paddler. I made an unplanned wet exit at the end of the trip just getting out of the boat. It might be that I need a little more practice with this particular boat.Also when I practiced getting in & out on dry ground my heels kept catching the seat bottom.
