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 Outdoor Research Expedition Crocodile Gaiters:
I've spent a lot of Alaskan summers walking around for days with wet feet, wet socks and wet shoes. I'd pretty much gotten used to and accepted the fact that hiking anywhere off the well-beaten path just means that your feet will end up wrinkled, white-skinned, and if you regularly spend a week or more on a long traverse, you're going to be a member of the foot fungus club.
Enter the OR Exp Croc gaiter. I'm embarrassed to say that I've had these sitting in the gear room for about a year before actually using them. Initially I just wasn't willing to add another piece of gear to my pack, figuring that the weight wasn't worth whatever meager protection was gained, but after a few 2-3 day outings, my regard for them has completely changed.
Above all, I've found that these gaiters are an essential partner for any Gore Tex hiking shoe. Sure, the Gore Tex shoe is going to keep your feet dry--but if you're hiking through wet, waist-high foliage or stepping in water that goes over the top of the shoe, you're done for--and the shoe is going to become a foot-bath pretty quick. Pair it up with these gaiters however, and voila! You've just solved your problem, and at the end of the day when you've made camp at the top of a ridge in 100% humidity clouds and the rest of your party is fruitlessly trying to dry out their shoes and socks with their lower legs scratched and bleeding from hours of bushwhacking through brush and prickers--you can lay back, relax and day-dream about your future as a high-paid lower leg and foot model.
