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.

Comments about Scarpa Charmoz Pro GTX Mountaineering Boots - Women's:
I picked up these Scarpas because I needed something a bit more agile than my heavy duty mountaineering boots (La Sportiva Nepal EVO) for summer climbing. Fitting mountaineering boots can be tough- the function of a very stiff sole and the specialized use means they just aren't going to be as comfy as a running shoe! They also do require some break-in time, so be prepared for that.
I have a B width foot that is lower-volume, with a narrow heel. I usually fit La Sportivas very well for this reason- and sometimes Scarpas work for me (they are a bit higher volume). In this case, the La Sportiva Trangos were just a bit too constricting in the toe box and midfoot- they felt fine in the store, but I could tell that after a long day on the hill, my toes were going to suffer. The Scarpa Charmoz have more room through the toebox, but maintain the narrow heel. The provided sockliners are useless, as are most, and I was able to dial in the volume fit using insoles (in this case Soles). They do fit true to size, but make sure you order using Euro sizing as it is more consistent (ie a 7.5 is a 39, where usually it is a 38.5).
Assuming this boot fits your foot well, the performance is great- the first outing was a quick trip to Camp Muir and back in slushy snow, and the second trip was an ascent of the Tooth with lots of dirt hiking, talus-hopping and class 4 climbing. There was no wet-through from snow (although I did sweat a bit), the grip was secure, even when rock hopping after dunking them in snowmelt, and I was able to loosen the top lacing while leaving the bottom secure for the trip downhill. No blisters, not even hot spots! They would be uncomfortable for extended travel on dirt trails, as they aren't flexible, but if you use them for steeper slopes and more technical terrain, they work very well.
