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 FalconGuides Hiking Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks - 2nd Edition - Enhanced Digital Book:
Initial impression: the "interactive guidebook" is not all that interactive, just more expensive. Falcon missed many opportunities to live up to the "interactive" promise of this product.
In the entire introductory chapter, the only internet link leads to the Park's home page. With all the discussion of permits (PDF application online) and trails with special restrictions, there are no other external or internal links in the first chapter.
The overview map in chapter 2 has the usual circles with trail numbers, but none of these is linked to the hike pages, or even has any hover text indicating the name of the hike. This seems like a no-brainer. There is no numeric list of hikes, so the numbers on the map are somewhat useless. Chapter 2 does contain lists of hikes by experience – views, waterfalls – with handy links for jumping to the detailed trip descriptions.
Android is completely unsupported. I can only guess that Falcon felt that the ubiquitous Kindle and Nook platforms were insufficient and decided instead to use the little-known Inkling reader. Inkling supports ONLY Mac/PC Chrome and Safari, and there's an app for iPhone and iPad. I get "browser unsupported" messages - even using Chrome - on my android device and I cannot display the book. The same message appears over the content in Firefox on my PC, but I've only noticed one minor glitch so far.
Inkling does have some nice features – very basic searching, note-taking, high-resolution photos, links between hike lists and the hike descriptions – and having the table of contents always visible in the left panel makes it easier to move around in the book.
Overall it was an interesting experience to check out this digital platform, but I think I would be happier with the printed book – which I truly can take with me anywhere, no Internet connection required.
