    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.

    Marmot Limelight 4P Tent is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Marmot Limelight 4P Love this tent, bought one after trying the limelight 3 a few times, use it for base camping/car camping, first weekend held up to a few inches of rain no prob, holds a queen size matress, and still has room, you can change without sitting or lying down. Could use more vents in the fly, near springs and in damp cool weather you will get condesation. I also recommend replacing the guy lines with Reflective Accessory cord. Comes with the ground Tarp a plus as I don't have to spend another $50. This one is really too big to Backpack with unless splitting the load among 3 people. Also 4 People means no Gear inside. If REI has any pull with Marmot if they could put in a reccomendation to extend the groud fly under the vestibules, and to make the vestibules a little bigger, it is difficult to enter and exit the tent while raining, you have to have both the fly and the tent open to get in.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Design Really nice tent. Very roomy and I think it ventilates well. I am really impressed with the double vestibule and how well it will keep out rain when exiting during a storm. Only complaint and it is not really likely to be an issue is a floor seam. I feel a better design would have been a solid piece of floor fabric, but since I bought the tent at REI I am not worried about the seam leaking. If it ever does back for replacement. I think this is probably been the best tent I have owned.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chef Recommends The Marmot Limelight series of tents are awesome. I had gotten the two man before and liked it so much I picked up the four man. Everyone that has shared a night in mine has been floored at how easy and quick the set up is and also by how dried we stayed in it. It is inevitable, If you camp with me, you will get rained on like you wouldn't believe. The four man tent was great for 3 adult males without feeling cramped at all and I've done it with 2 as well but there was a lot of unused space, I wouldn't recommend 2 people in colder weather due to a loss of body heat. It would have been great if a dog joined though. It would also be plenty big for a family of 4, with 2 adults and 2 kids probably 13 and younger.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tent...but We researched this tent carefully and it has been everything we expected with one exception. Due to design of the fly, any water accumulated on the fly above each door falls into the tent when exiting. This is a particular problem when leaving the tent in the morning after a rain or heavy dew. To be fair, this problem would exist on any dome design without a center ridge pole. Otherwise perfect. We replaced the guy lines and added side pull outs to the fly like other reviewers.
