    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.

    Kelty Carport ESB Shelter is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Car Camping Purchase Ever! I bought the carport for a road trip from Portland OR to San Diego. I outfitted my SUV with a cot, mini-fridge and internal storage. Although difficult to set up the first time (fabric was tight but since has stretched just enough for easy use) the Carport was more than I could have asked for. I used it to escape from the SUV on nights it was too hot to sleep while keeping my privacy. I used it as a changing room and to cook in on my REI camp kitchen. Since the trip I have used it as a canopy on almost every car-camping trip in the Pacific Northwest (where it is almost guaranteed to rain); I just pull up close to the fire-ring, pop up the carport and set up my chairs underneath.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lasted 5 years - time to buy another. I purchased a Carport (the original model) four years ago. It has been used very hard and held up great. A few weeks ago, I got caught unexpectedly in a storm with very high winds at night and sadly, it was damaged beyond repair. It was not due to poor design. I should have secured it better before turning in - my fault. I live in the desert Southwest where the summer sun is intense. I use it mainly as an overhead canopy for shade to sit under and I drop it down for privacy to take showers and whatnot. It's very versatile, quick and easy to set up. Heartbroken over the loss, I placed an order for a new Carport ESB today.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great option for car camping If we're staying in one place more than a day, we find this tent well-worth the effort. It's solid, stable in wind, and supports a wide range of pitching options. Unfortunately (or perhaps, inevitably), it is not the easiest shelter to set up - though we have added some minor modifications (color taping poles) to make it marginally easier.
