    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    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.

    UCO Strike-On-Box Matches is rated 1.6667 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from For home kitchen, not good for camping These matches are not for camping use. I was camping in the wooded area in northern Wisconsin, With humidity which was normal for forest, these matches did not work well. The box adsorbs moisture, becomes soft and it won't open easily. You need to strike several times to light up the match, but it won't burn, especially if it's windy. When I came back from my trip - these matches dried up and now work perfectly in my kitchen. Summary: the product is not good for camping, but for home kitchen and summer picnics.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from These matches are horrid These are the worst matches I have ever bought! The head breaks off when striking 90% of the time. Some wouldn't even light.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lights, but striker doesn't last long. On a trip with our Scout Troop, the boys wore out the strikers on both sides of the box pretty quickly. Because these are "strike on the box ONLY" they became difficult to light. I have to lay partial blame on the boys as I don't think they strike the matches quickly and firmly enough. And that may explain the premature wear of the strikers. But after only a dozen matches, the striker was difficult for even me to get a match to light. I have to admit the strike anywhere matches may be a better purchase for the backcountry.
