    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 fromGreat sock for running I have used these socks for city runs and trail runs. They feel great on the foot and wick the moisture well.

    by fromthere socks Got these for running, have always had good life out of merino wool products. This seems a little thin but you never know it might last. I still have a hard time paying so much for one pair of socks. The jury is still out on these and if the last a year or two i would increase my rating, but for now its an average (and expensive average at that.)

    by fromSmartwool running socks My experience & why I love Smartwool socks: I wear these everyday for my workout & they are awesome! They conform to your foot, don't move around, & feel like heaven. I have stopped wearing other socks except for work (although I've been naughty & worn them instead of my dress socks a few times, I think they match my suit just fine) & my big bulky hiking socks that I need for my boots. I also wear them in my casual shoes I wear around town, again, they are fabulous beyond words. I run around the house barefoot both inside & outside (yes, I was that barefoot kid in the neighborhood but I never really grew out of it). These are a perfect compromise for my feet, my feet don't get cold with Smartwool socks on & the socks fit so well & are thin enough that I still feel free. The only downside I have come across so far (& I go through at least 2 pairs a day) is that you don't want to put them in the dryer. If you do, they fuzz up & get those little ball things on them. It's not a deal breaker by any means just an annoyance of sorts. Between work, house upkeep, adventures, social time, 2 dogs & a cat that thinks he's a dog; we often forget to dig through the laundry & hang them up to dry. When we do remember to hang dry them, I must say that they dry rather quickly.

    by fromMy favorite socks I'm not much of a runner, but having done a bunch of warm weather traveling/hiking through Africa and in SE Asia, these were my favorite warm weather socks. These are super sleek and supportive socks, and worked well with trainers as well as my preferred walking shoes (Merrell Jungle Mocs and now their Barefoot (Vibram) Mocs). They do a fantastic job of keeping the feet fresh and dry in blistering heat and humidity over long distances and like most Smartwool products, they are themselves very fast drying. I bought a variety of Running, Outdoor, and Cycling "Ultra Light Micro" socks (my preferred cut), but besides the different colors didn't really notice much difference between them.
