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 fromGreat addition to night riding This is THE ticket to side visibility on a bike. With a headlight and tail light and this Bikeglow... you don't need anything else.

by fromEye catching (not always in a good way) When I first put the bike glow on my new SS, I was overjoyed. It gave a very customized look to my bare-bones setup and the fiber-optic cord maintained a consistent glow from the tip to the tail. The first time I took it out for a spin, the light turned off when I hit a small bump. I found that the battery pack had a loose connection and if I simply hit it against my hand, the light would shut off. After some tinkering and replacing the batteries, the light seemed to work fine. It is my belief that the batteries that came with it were worn out and fresh brand-name batteries made the difference. Unfortunately, the light is almost too visible. About a week after I started using it, I must have caught the attention of some less-than-neighborly characters. I found the bike stripped of lights (I had a front and rear as well) and my locks tampered with. Luckily it was u-bolted. I only left it alone for about half an hour in my friend's backyard so I'm fairly certain that it was the unique appearance of the lights that attracted the thief(s). Living near to a college campus in Tacoma, WA, I decided to cut my losses and just replace the front and rear lights for road laws. If you store your bike indoors (as you should), this is great. Not sure if my battery pack was a fluke, but I'll never know for sure. Just remember that EVERYONE will see you.

by fromLike the side lighting it provides Glad to have the extra side visibility on dark rides. Plus, provides the feeling of being in a parade of lights. With two taillights, bright headlight, plus this frame light it gives me more confidence on cross roads. Not much good at dusk because the flash isn't intense like a headlight, but it is good in the dark. It allows for more fun!!

by fromGets attention On just one commute (18 miles each way) I had three people comment from their cars, ask me where I got it and a kid yell "cool bike" from the sidewalk. Clearly a very visible attention getter, which is the point of it. I ride many miles between tired motorists and at this time of the year when we are supposed to be under snow, they don't expect bicycles, so this really helps to stay alive. Not giving it 5 stars because the connector between battery pack and light wire seems to be low grade. The first time I installed it, the light didn't work. I thought I had broken the wire by bending it too much, but it turned out it was the connector. Reconnected it a few times and then the light was back. Very small pins in there, but if you take care of it and don't disconnect it too often, this should not be a problem I think I need a second color now :)

by fromAwesome colorful light I bought one of these a couple of years ago back home when I took a semester off from college and was commuting to a full time job. This provides excellent visibility, especially since it is colorful. In Seattle, it's good to have anything to stand out on a rainy, foggy, or dark day. It installs easily on the body of the bike - the package comes with electrical tape, a small screw driver, and directions. This is worth every penny. I just got another one for my bike here in college (SoCal) and I stand out a ton on campus, which is added fun... and all the cars can see me on our unlit suburban roads!

by fromGreat idea! Love this product! It's such a great idea. I ride a good amount at night and I consider this to be just as essential as my helment. Cars give me more room then I've ever had and I always get comments on how much people like it.
