    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 fromThanks REI for taking back the radio We had high hopes for this compact radio. Mainly wanted the Weather report,but liked the other features too. Just couldn't get a weather band even sitting next to a Harbor. We tried others in the store,and they don't receive well either. Time for a redesign Eton. Hoping no campers/boaters are relying on this gadget. And we so thank REI for accepting the return.

    by fromCould've Been Great The frequency indicator broke on the first use. Radio will still change stations but you cannot tell what station you're on. I really wanted this radio to work becuase I love all the features and it does function as advertised. But with such a poor strength in the controls I can't rely on this in an emergency situation.

    by fromPerfect in a pinch I received this emergency radio, and I thought 'great, thanks but will I really use this?' I've never thought about buying a device like this. Then a couple of weeks later we had a storm roll through and blow down tree limbs and knock out power for a couple hours, just after sunset. I found the value in the product, immediately. I had a flashlight and a weather radio to track the storm and stay informed. Fortunately it was just a mild storm with strong winds. Did I mention how nice it is to have a flashlight on an emergency radio? I did not have to crank the hand turbine or charge my cell phone, but it sure is nice to have a back-up plan just incase.
