    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.

    All bicycles sold at REI include a free warranty tune-up. New bikes go through a normal break-in period, after which readjustment is important for longevity and performance. Bring your new bike in to your local REI for its free tune-up within 20 hours of use or 6 months from purchase, whichever comes first. Contact your nearest REI bike shop to schedule this important service.

    Novara Carema Women's Bike - 2014

    Loading Ratings & Reviews...

    Novara Carema Women's Bike - 2014 is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Carema of the Crop I've had some bikes as a kid and a cheap and clunky one for college, but I'd say that the Carema is my first "real" bike. I mostly biked to commute between classes as a college student, but now that I qualify as a "young adult," I discovered that I did miss biking recreationally, and I guess I'm kind of environmentally- and health-conscious like so many other Californians that I decided to splurge for a good bike. I could've bought a much more expensive bike, but REI has the 20% of sale, and for a beginner like me, there wasn't really a point in getting a super fancy schmancy Cannondale (yet). I decided to buy the Carema because the specs were good and for the price, it was great for a novice/recreational biker like myself. If you don't buy this bike for its price, quality (again, there are better and lighter bikes out there, for sure, but for this price the quality is great), or whatever other way you want to justify yourself, but it for the looks! This bike is amazingly pretty; I wouldn't say the color is "Blue Cloud" - more of a "Seafoam Green," actually - but regardless: This. Bike. Is. Very. Pretty. I've ridden it a handful of times over the weekends and afterwork and every time have been complimented by other cyclists/people. It handles well and the seat isn't really too bad if you've got the right cushiony-spandex on. My distance rides from 5 miles - 25 miles depending on what other activities I'm doing that week.
