    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.

    by fromGreat Kayak Got this kayak at the end of the season to save a few bucks so don't have much paddle time on it yet. But so far so good. I'm 6'3 and 210lbs and this was the only touring kayak I could fit in that had leg room for my long legs.

    by fromDay touring smiles Use this kayak in the ocean for fun and day paddling.We have 2 of these and they are a well built and designed kayak, lots of storage and the seat and foot rest controls are fully adjustable for the whole family. Great for teens and adults. Kayak is stable and good at tracking, good for beginner to experienced kayaker. I havent used in heavy weather, so cant comment on that. heavy duty design so can take a bump and hard landings no problem. I would use for longer than day trips if I had more time. They are quite heavy to carry but not so heavy you cant do it.Two people can move 2 of these at the same time using the built in handles. A kayak cart would be easier and will be the next purchase. would but again as it was a good choice for the family.Seen a few of these on the rental circuit so you know they can stand the abuse of constant use.
