    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.

    Tifosi Slip Fototec Photochromic Sunglasses - Men's is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality I bought these to replace some long loved Bolle glasses that had finally bitten the dust. Based on reviews here, I expected to love these. And for a short period, I did. But after a handful of bike rides -- and very careful use and storage -- the lens cracked in half. The Tifosi "warranty" is a joke -- pay to ship back the glasses, pay a $15 "warranty fee" and go without your glasses for who knows how long. And that is assuming they deem the problem one that falls under warranty. Fortunately, I did buy these at REI and plan to return them there -- and switch to a different brand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work Well I use them road biking, and they work as they should.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good but WEAK! What a shame! I really liked these sunglasses. They fit well, looked great, the tint adjusted to light, the vents reduced fog with temperature change. Unfortunately built into the design is a fatal flaw that dooms these glasses to premature death. The plastic in the temple region, near the hinge for the ear pieces is extremely thin. After about 4 days of use the left ear piece just broke off. I used the glasses mostly for driving so the were not being subjected to abuse. I did wear them skiing once but did not crash. Great glasses except for that one fatal flaw.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Biking glasses I wear all the the time I originally bought these sunglasses just for biking. They are light weight, comfortable, and fit well. They do not slip even when my face is dripping with sweat. The photo sensitive lenses cut out the glare and keep me from squinting. The lenses get lighter or darker fairly quickly as I ride through wooded areas and back into the bright sunlight. I like them so much I wear them all the time as my primary sunglasses. As with most quality sunglasses, one must take good care of them. I carry the soft cover all the time to protect the lenses when in my pocket or day pack.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Sunglasses I went into heavy brush and with my old sunglasses it was too dark. I would take them off and a branch would hit me in the eye. I like that these change with the conditions and you do not have to remove them.
