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 Gear Aid Tenacious Tape Patches:
I purchased this tape expecting it to be stronger than duct tape and easier to carry because of the peel-off backing, this was not the case. The package comes with two types of patches; one with a cloth-like backing and the other is clear like packing tape. Neither of these patches were sufficient to seal a small hole in the side of my sleeping pad.
Thank goodness I applied the tape prior to my trip otherwise I would have ended up backpacking with no sleeping pad. The size of the hole was about half the size of a grain of rice and was located along the edge of a seam which made application very difficult. As I put weight on the sleeping pad the tenacious tape would bubble up from the inside and eventually the air would start to escape from the sides of the patch. I quickly busted out my trusty duct tape and the seal was perfect even after I overinflated the pad a bit and put my full weight on it.
The problem with this tape is that one of its "features" is that it doesn't leave a sticky residue like duct tape. All that means is that the adhesive is not nearly as strong on the tenacious tape as it is on duct tape. I would recommend this tape to seal small tears/holes in backpacks, jackets, or other non-pressurized tears on-the-fly. But for anything that requires an air-tight seal I would stay far away.
