    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.

    by fromLatern package and Goal 10 I live in Arizona and I bought the lantern package and also purchased the Goal 10. I have tried numerous times to get a full charge on the lantern from the Nomad 7 and have NEVER succeeded. All day in the sun for less than an hour of light. I don't feel it was advertised properly and the instructions that come with are very sketchy. I had to call multiple times for help. They also took the money out a MONTH before they sent it out because of a back-up. I don't feel that's good business. I spent a lot of money for a product that doesn't work like they said so I won't be buying anything else!

    by fromdoes not do what was told it would Got to use while traveling in motor Home to charge cell phones, i pads, lap tops small items. Tried to set up at home to try it on cell phones, This product didn't charge them. We have not been able to use it at all. We saw your product at the Sports expo in Sacramento, Calif. and bought it there. We were impressed by what we were told and shown, however we are not able to do anything with it. The instructions could be better. As far as we are concerned at this time it was a waste of our money. Perhaps if worked we would be satisfied, but at this point we are not. We've had it since January 2013 and haven't been able to use it yet.

    by fromNever worked as advertised. Bought the item through a Goal Zero Promo, and it never really worked as advertised. I tried to charge in the sun by leaving the panels on my dash for 3-6 hours, occasionally checking and reposistioning. After 6 hours, I didn't even have 50% charge, that is according to the blinking light system they use instead of a power charge % indicator. I tried to charge my iPhone with the little power it did absorb and got 10-20% or so on the phone before the batteries were dead. The Guide 10 power pack was making a whistling noise the entire time it was charging and figured it was a faulty unit. I called GoalZero (1st of 4 times), and they promptly sent another unit citing "a known issue." It arrived flung in a box, about 10 times the size of the unit with no packaging or bubble wrap. I immediately thought it was probably some one else's return, and they are recycling the junk. I tried it again. Same exact issues with noise and lack of charge, except the blinking light system said it charged to over 50% in the same amount of time. iPhone got 50% charge off of it, not 100-300% they advertise. I called back and they send a third unit, this time with new batteries, but again open packaging that looked like a return. I tried again and could not get a full charge, or close from the sun. I tried to charge it from a USB port, and it gave me a solid green in 3 hours as opposed to the 8 hours the instructions say it will take. This time I got about an 80% charge on my iPhone from the unit....still not 1-3 charges like they say. I charged the batteries in an Energizer plug in charger, and was able to get almost a full iPhone charge from the Guide10. I'd could live with at least 1 full charge from the unit except for the fact that THESE BATTERIES DON'T HOLD A CHARGE FOR MORE THAN A FEW DAYS!! And that's regardless of whether you store them in the unit or in a plastic case. This is pointless if you have to use the battery pack right away, and if you have to keep recharging them without use, GoalZero becomes GoalWastedEnergy. My phone did take a charge directly from the Nomad 7 Panel, but I didn't wait to see how long 100% would take. In my book, without storage this is useless, considering 80% of the time I just need a little back up power in my day to day use and for the time when I'm one the trail, the sun isn't always on my schedule, so I need to store power up when its available. The unit is just very flimsy and has obvious design flaws if 3 units all have the same problems....and what could possibly be whistling in there?? I read that better batteries make the unit great, but why are the ones included so defective? Call a few times recently, but keep getting a voicemail. Hopefully the panels will work directly with my phone in a reasonable amount of time because the Guide 10 is useless.

    by fromPoor Performance This product stopped working shortly after I recieved it and will not charge, hold a charge, or charge other items. Extremely dissapointed. When it originally did work, it took far too long to charge it using solar power. Cheap craftsmanship. I own many GZ products which I originally thought were quality products but they are all failing my expectations. Will not recommend anyone buy from GZ at this time.

    by fromVery unsatisfied needs more tweeking to I bought the three fold solar panel and charging lantern bundle. I got a full charge on my phone one day during my 9 day trip from lake chapaka in WA on up to Danvill also in WA. The solar panel overheated and wouldn't charge the Lanterns internal battery or my smart phone even in the low light shade and it was only 90 degrees in the sunlight. I tried the hand crank on top of the lantern and cranked it one night for two hrs and got 5 mins of light from the darn thing. If it was made for rugged outdoor use then why wasn't it tough enough to do its job? I think the solar panel and the lantern need some major tweaking before you can really expect any real results from these products. Ultimatly I had kept the receit and returned these products after a very frustrating 9 day trip, back to sportsmans warehouse in Silverdale WA.

    by fromiPhone 5 If your buying this product to charge your iPhone 5 look elsewhere! The phone will shut it down in direct sunlight! GZ makes great products that I will continue to buy but this one is not it for current Apple products!

    by fromDead I had bought this from EMS and the first day the battery pack melted, so I returned it and they gave me a new one. The second battery pack also isn't working. I can use the flashlight but thats it. However, the solar panel itself was useful in charging a cell phone or camera. The battery pack nor the solar panel has enough amps to charge an iPhone or iPad. Overall, I suggest you think carefully before buying this because it may not work.

    by fromBattery pack not living up to claims The advertisement claims that the goal 10 battery pack will recharge cell phones. However, I have a Motorola trac ph. simple, nothing fancy, and the battery pack will not recharge the phone, even when the goal 10 is fully charged up. Also, it will not rechage my video camera. I am very dissapointed in this product.
