    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.

    Rated5out of5byfromA must use product.I used to run marathons and was always bonking and cramping in the last half. Since I started using salt stick I have not had those problems. In fact, recovery is much improved since I am keeping up with my electrolyte loss by taking salt stick. Now I run ultramarathons with no issues. I recommend using this on any activity over an hour, where you sweat a lot. You will see results.

    Rated5out of5byfromSolid thus far...I was looking for an electrolyte that had fewer side effects during my usage (half marathon training, and ultimate frisbee tournaments). My current fizzy tablets made me feel bloated, and some gave me headaches. Though I don't have lots of experience yet, these pills seem to do the trick! In both my recent half marathon and ultimate tournament, I felt great, no leg cramping and stomach was not bloated at all. I did try to open the pill and mix with water -- that didn't work :) It just wouldn't mix. In any case, I look forward to gain more experience while getting more PR's! 4 or 5 stars? I debated this a litte. Could it be better? What is perfect in this case? Great taste? Fizzy? Well, I'm thinking that perfect should be measured by the performance of my muscles, and not my taste buds.

    Rated5out of5byfromA must for endurance athletesI bought the salt stick because of the high sodium content (>300mg/capsule). Some other brands have significantly less sodium (~40mg) so you need to look at the bottle for the mg of sodium. During hot events (IM Louisville, 50mile run), I will take 1 capsule every 20-30 minutes but you have to figure out what works for you. I will also use salt sticks during long winter activities (marathon XC skiing). The salt sticks are honestly a life saver for me during long events You need to figure out how will be the easiest way to access the salt stick capsules that will work for you. I use really small medicine baggies (at Pharmacy) because the capsules have to stay dry otherwise the gel container melts. I haven't tried the container made by salt stick. It didn't seem to carry enough for how long I am out on the bike.

    Rated5out of5byfromFantasticThis stuff is fantastic, and much better value than buying the electrolyte tablets. The only downside is me, I get lazy or forgetful and don't take enough of them.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat for hiking and backpackingI was getting muscle cramps while hiking and backpacking, and insomnia afterwards. I thought the problem was dehydration, so drank even more water. And the doctor had me reduce salt for blood pressure. Cramps and insomnia kept getting worse. I was sweating out too much salt and not replacing it. Now I take SaltStick Caps and Caps Plus (with caffeine) every hour while hiking and backpacking. The cramps and insomnia stopped. Sometimes I forget, and both come back hard. My blood pressure is normal. I also like that they come in vegetable capsules – most capsules are made from gelatin.
