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.

Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

by fromyear round socks I wear these socks every day that I wear shoes. They are the most comfortable socks I have ever owned and now I don't buy anything else. They are the best in the summer and in the winter...hiking or walking, boots or regular shoes.

by fromDefinitely going to get more of these These are wonderful. :) I don't have any other wool clothes because I can't stand the texture, but these are just fine except when I had mosquito bites on my feet - they did cause those to itch a bit. But my feet do not get too hot, the socks slide against my boots so no rubbing, and they dry fast and pack tiny and they don't seem to get smelly like other socks, even though on my last backpacking trip I wore them three days in a row. Don't know how durable they are yet, since they are pretty thin. I will definitely pick up a couple more pairs next sale.

by fromBest socks ever I use mine for trail running. Never had a blister. Dry quickly. Just ran a 70 mile race in my last pair. Only gripe with this latest generation of Smartwools is that they are a tiny bit thin in the toe and don't last quite as long as it seems.
