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 fromPoint 65 Apollo Sit-On-Top Kayak - Stern If you are looking for a quick and easy kayak you can fit in most cars...This one is for you. I like it because I don't need my roof rack and can quickly throw it in back of my car with seats folded down. It's also nice that it comes in two pieces when you have to carry it up and down a hill. The only complaints are...No drain holes!!! It quickly fills with water with practically every wave.(Bilge Pump Required) The back end is low so if you are heavy...you increase your chances of taking on more water. Going with the current...The tracking is bearable. Going against the current or in choppy waters is awful. You are constantly correcting. The hull isn't very durable either. I barely scraped against a rock and got a hole in it. Thank you Marine Epoxy! Kayak saved!!! :) Overall it is a good "On the go" kayak if you only travel on calm waters and don't have a roof rack. Otherwise I would recommend getting a single piece kayak. I am keeping this one for quick trips but if I were to buy a modular kayak again...I would have purchased the Tequila since it has drain holes. That would be my biggest complaint.

by fromHappy I'm very happy with my Apollo. I've used in in flat relatively slow moving rivers so far, specifically in Jefferson County WV on the Shenandoah and Potomac rivers in the summer months. I bought it because I can carry Inside my 2008 Forester, and carry it by myself. It is a sit on top, and does get water in it. And I agree with other reviewers, it doesn't track well. It is short, so that is to be expected. Some of this can be accomendated by bracing with your legs alternately as you paddle. I have an inflatable kayak that I purchased from REI, and it tracks about the same but isn't rigid enough to control with my legs like I can this one. I plan on purchasing the mid section. The extra length may improve the tracking. I do wish the design included handles at the ends like the longer versions of Point 65 two piece kayaks. I am happy enough with this boat to be considering a future purchase of the Point 65 Tequila or Martini versions of their two piece kayaks
