    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.

    Whispbar Flush Roof Bar - Pair is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great! Looks great! I recently bought a 2006 BMW 330i and needed a rack for skis and my bike. Having used the Yakima system for many years, I already had the crossbars, towers and various equipment racks. I thought that all I needed was some Q clips and I would be ready to go. But nooooo such luck! Yakima did not make a compatible Q clip for my car model. The only option was the Whisperbar setup at $400+. Since Yakima had cunningly hooked me into buying various expensive racks over the years, I reluctantly bought the kit - all the while cursing Yakima for making me spend extra money. Well - Installation was a breeze (using the factory mount points. The bar adjustment is much simpler then the Q Tower system. And,I have to admit, it looks GREAT on my car. MUCH nicer then the old round bars and towers. Low profile, brushed aluminum and much quieter (although there still is some wind noise at freeway speeds. Seems to be very sturdy. It is pretty easy to take on and off (5 min). However, I am leaving on my car because it looks so good. Sadly, I also had to buy different Mighty Mount clips that only fit the Whisperbar, for mounting my gear racks. However all my old gear racks fit solid. All in all, even though the pocketbook is thinner, it was well worth the money and I would recommend it. I took off one star because of the irritating upgrade cost.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and streamlined Used for transporting bikes. Locks down tightly to the built in receptacles. Very easy to use once installed; easy to put bikes on and off. Very little impact on gas mileage

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from They work and fit well. Bought racks and rocketbox 12 for my Prius, drove From Michigan to NE OH. They were quiet and only lost 1.5 Mpg. That was 5 weeks ago and haven't taken the bars off yet. Hope to carry kayaks with them soon.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Returned These roof bar has good design on the bars themselves. However, the connectors between the bar and the feet are all plastic. I am afraid they are not strong as metal. Didn't install.
