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 of5byRGRfromWorks wellThis spork is lightweight, strong, and works well. My wife and I each have one in a different color which is nice. The color has not faded or scratched off on our sporks. Buy it!

Rated5out of5bySmackyfromSucker for TitaniumI have quite a few of these that I use for every type of camping situation and meal. Its light, strong, easy to clean, and a great tool.
I only am hoping they eventually make a longer handle on these so I can have the perfect tool for eating deep into corners of bags, and stirring those deep cups of hot water/tea.

Rated4out of5byDr. SciencefromLove it, but the color fadesLove the spork! Of course, plastic flatware is much cheaper and more lightweight, but this is much more durable and looks cool.
I have several colors and also the Snow Peak titanium non-colored spork. I would buy this again, it really lasts and works well for all kinds of random things. If I were going on a day hike, I would probably just bring plastic flatware because it's lighter and I wouldn't be worried about losing it.
The only downside is the coloring, which is why I deducted a star. Makes it easy to spot and tell whose spork belonged to who at camp. But the color almost seems to wash off. Under normal use, it became a bit streaky. I can still tell the color, it's just more tie dye looking. Adds some character I guess, but I'd rather an expensive piece of cutlery kept its color.

Rated4out of5byPghDragonmanfromCool Looks, Really Useful, Very LightOK, I'm a geek. What's not to like about a spork? What's not to like about Titanium? So what's not to like about a Titanium spork? I just had to have one, especially since I already have a Titanium coffee mug!
I got this in the purple color primarily to make my work lunches fun. I got tired of using plastic ware and I don't trust the office flatware for being well cleaned, so I got this cool spork. Quite a conversation starter!
As a fork, it works very well. As a spoon, it does not hold quite enough, but since I favor noodle type soups and saucy dishes,it works well enough for me. Pair this with an Opinel folder for a real light weight picnic setup.

Rated5out of5bySubkulturefromGreat Ultralight Utensil!I was extremely impressed by the quality and seemingly weightless feel of these utensils! Make no mistake, though. These may be light, but they do not feel weak at all. I ordered one in the purple and one in the standard titanium and since they arrived they have quickly become my go-to utensils for both car camping and backpacking.
The only con for me is that they don't fit inside my GSI Dualist set like a collapsible utensil would, but as light and strong as they are, they can be stowed pretty much anywhere else. I'm planning to order two more to keep around as extras when I camp with friends.

Rated3out of5bygeissomatikfromVery utilitarian; loses color quicklyFunction-wise, this utensil is fantastic. It works well as both a spoon and a fork, weighs almost nothing, and is very strong. It's also nice and short, unlike some of the sturdy plastic spoons and forks (standard at REI) which are unnecessarily long and don't often fit into a small mess kit.
The reason I knocked 2 stars was for the color. We bought a beautiful pink one of these and after a single trip (and 2-3 washes) the color had faded in some areas (mainly on the larger flat surface, both sides), blending toward grey with a rainbowy shine. It wouldn't bother me if it faded uniformly, but it faded a lot in some areas and not at all in others. It was so beautiful before, and very quickly became a cruddy- and splotchy-looking item
I would recommend getting the non-colored version of this item, instead.
