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.

Comments about Blackburn Angola Combo Cable Lock - 12mm:
Use of this cable lock lost me my bike. For very short trips into grocery stores and whatnot, this cable lock will offer the appearance of security, and most likely deter the lazier thieves, but for longer times locked up, or if you lock your bike to the same place for multiple hours on a regular basis, such as while you are at work, or if you are in a higher-than-normal bike theft area, do not expect this lock to provide any real security.
After the theft of my bike I examined the cable's cross section (the thief evidently uses bolt cutters because the cable was cut in one swift motion and offered no resistance to the cutting tool used) I was shocked, angered and dismayed to discover that the bulk of this lock's "burlyness" is an optical illusion. Viewed from the side, through the plastic coating, the Kevlar-wrapped cable appears to be very stout, but when the cross section is examined... It is quite shockingly and pathetically less than 3/16ths of an inch thick. As a test my friend got his tin snips out and managed to cut through a section of undamaged cable in less than three minutes. We were both quite blown away by this. Add to that the fact that the dark red on black color scheme of the dials is practically impossible to see in the dark, this lock is not worth the money. I suggest a stout U lock, if you're concerned about keeping weight down, or a burly chain and padlock if you're disconcerned with weight. But use this and any other cable-based locking system with extreme caution.
