    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 Through Roof Bar - Pair is rated 4.3333 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid, Sturdy and Virtually Silent... I bought this rack over a hitch mount install, because I figured i would want to carry more than my bike. I can safely say the claim that the Whispbar is virtually silent is not an exaggeration. I can barely notice it is there. By comparison my brother used a square bar type rack with a fairing, and I knew it was there. There are some exceptions, like when it is a particularly windy day, but even on the highway I am impressed and pleased by the rack's performance. I have since added a bike attachment to this rack, and am satisfied my bike is not going anywhere but with me. Installing it was a bit tricky but once the grab arms were properly positioned, it was easy! The only reason I gave this 4 stars is there is always room for improvement and innovation.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Rack! Great design and very sleek look. Looks amazing on my 2011 Acura MDX. My only complaint is the noise I hear... A slight whistling sound. With the radio on, you don't hear it too bad. Overall, very good rack to use on a vehicle with a naked roof.
