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.

Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

by fromFlimsy, but nice while it lasts I really like all the tools on the Gerber Dime, and they (specifically the blades, not the tool in general) seem to hold up to standard tasks just fine. The problem with this multi-tool in my opinion, is that the metal of the casing is weak. I've owned two Dimes, and on both of them the metal stops that are supposed to determine the "fully open" position of the tool have failed. The first Dime failed while I was using the pliers to do some relatively light work. The casing bent, rendering the pliers portion of the tool useless. On the second Dime, the knife bent the casing out of place, making the blade sit at an odd angle to the handle. Each tool on the Dime would have to fail individually to make this tool completely useless, but it seems like every time I use a tool, it fails.

by fromGood for backpacking If it's not clear by the photo, this is a very small tool. It's small enough to fit on a key chain, and light enough to perhaps even attach to a zipper pull. However, its small size makes it difficult to use as an everyday item. A tool this small certainly can't be as sturdy as the full-size version, nor can it be as easy to use. You'll be making use of your finger nails to open the tools inside the handle. BUT... If you want the gear repair and survival benefits of a multitool without adding a lot of weight to your pack, that's when the Gerber Dime is a clear winner. It's incredibly small and light, and can be easily hung from your bag or put in your first aid kit. Its small pliers are surprisingly strong for what they do, and with fine tips and a spring to provide accuracy, they make great tweezers, in addition to the tiny tweezers that slide out of the handle. I've used the pliers on this bad boy to grab hot plates, repair gear, and remove splinters. Indispensable, and really, probably best if put in your first aid kit. Hopefully Gerber realizes the ultralight potential of this and replaces the box cutting attachment with something like a fire starter!

by fromGreat little tool Love this little too, especially the blade designed to open heavy plastic packaging. It fits on my key change and goes where I go.

by fromDime preferred over the Squirt Have both the Gerber Dime and the Leatherman Squirt. While the two are comparable I anticipate using the Dime more regularly. The tool selection is similar but I find that the tools in the Dime are useable more often. The box opener always comes in handy and saves dulling the main blade. The bottle opener is definitely easier to use than the Squirt. Finally, I wanted tweezer for pulling ticks when in the back country. True, neither tool is suitable for the workshop, but great for backpacking without adding much weight to the pack and handy to have in the pants pocket for whatever.

by fromI never leave home without it! A great tool to have for 'just in case'! Small enough for any pocket. I'm a computer/network technician by trade and this multi-function tool has come in handy when I didn't have my other tools with me.
