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.

Rated 5out of5
by fromPerfect fit, perfect box I got this box a little over 2 weeks ago and have already put it through its paces. Been on multiple trips up the mountain with ski gear (everything but the skis) and been on a 400 mile round trip camping trip. I have nothing negative to say about it. Easy to install and remove, takes literally 5 minutes. Once on the roof it doesn't make a sound from the wind or anything else. When you hit a bump the roof of the box rattles a little bit but nothing major and usually only noticeable if the window is down. Love this box and would recommend it to anyone.

by fromPerfect, just what we hoped for. We got this box for some added space for our annual trip to Yosemite. Super easy to install (less than 5 minutes) and holds a lot (chairs, clothes, sleeping bags, towels, etc). Was a little worried about the weight limit of our crossbars which is less than the rating of the box (2002 CR-V with 75 lb max) but made it up and back without any issues. No wind noise at all, no slipping of contents in the box (it was packed full with blankets and other loose items), and only a slight drop in gas mileage (it got 25 mpg for the trip on the highway and it usually gets about 22 mpg city/hwy regularly). Construction feels a little flimsy but I think that's what you get for the lightweight. The lid also opens a little precariously so you need to make sure one side doesn't go up without the other (I sort of have to rock it up from one side to the other).

by fromThat extra room you might need As a frequent traveler of the I-5 from San Diego,CA to Olympia,WA and back, I encounter all sorts of weather from heavy rain to snow (gotta love those mountain passes) and lots of cross winds. This Thule roof box has been outstanding its quick and easy to put on your roof and take off and it fits on about anything with cross bars. Its light enough that I've carried it by myself, its durable, over the course of two years doesn't even show wear. The best thing is nothing wet, dirty, smelly, drippy, or sandy has to go in your vehicle for the drive home. I highly recommend if your looking for a middle of the road roof box. Great value!
