    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.

    Thule Vertex 2 Bike Hitch Rack is rated 4.1667 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good hardware, needed modification Good product overall. Easy to set up. The problem is that there is only one hole for the bolt that attaches the stinger to the tow hitch. The one hole is at the very tip of the stinger, which in my case (2013 Subaru Crosstrek with dealer-installed 1.25" tow hitch) causes the bike rack to stick way out of the hitch receiver, just dangling out of there. So I had to take the bike rack to a machinist to have another hole drilled/tapped, and now everything is perfect. I really like the design of this Thule otherwise, so I didn't want to go with a different rack. Thule just needs to correct this one design flaw and it'll be perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bike rack I´m 100% happy about this purchase as its exactly what I was looking for. Great design, not bulky, easy to install, fits 2 bikes perfectly and it only takes about 10 secs to put a bike on and off. I´m using it everyday and I am very pleased with the quality.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from bike hithc This rack was very easy to mount to my Jeep's hitch. But my Giant Trance Mountain bike's frame is too small for the width of the mounting bars. I have to manipulate it to fit in the rack, I worry that I am causing unnecessary wear on my brake line. I think that you need to check your frame's compatibility with this rack before purchasing, otherwise, it is a very good rack.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, minimalist design Because my spare tire is mounted on the back of my vehicle, above the trailer hitch, I had to buy a hitch extension in order for the rack to fit my RV. Bikes are in contact with each other, so expect some blemishes and scratches.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very sturdy Very reliable rack, easy to install. One thing i'd add that we have on our other car with a Yakima - a ring of some sort to loop a bike lock through.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Sturdy Considering the reasonable price, I expected a product of lesser quality. I was pleasantly surprised with the workmanship and durability of this product.
