    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.

    Piggyback Rider NOMIS Basic Stand Up Child Carrieris rated3.0out of5by3.
    Rated4out of5byfromGreat way to keep hiking with kidsThis product is meets a need that no other product I've seen does. We have been using a child carrier backpack since our daughter was old enough to be out hiking with us, but at 2 1/2 yes old she has reached the point she is just too big to ride in the backpack. Problem is, she's still too young to have the stamina for most hikes. The Piggyback Rider has been great for continuing to go on hikes as a family. Our daughter can easily walk until she starts feeling tired (or just wants a better view) and get up on the bar and ride until she wants to get down on her own again. Getting her up and down is easy and quick. She loves it. Make no mistake, it's no where near as comfortable as a good child carrier backpack; I'd compare it to an old basic exterior frame hiker's backpack. The designers could make a big improvement by adding padding to the bar and adding a waist strap like you find on most hiking backpacks. Still, even as is, it is much more comfortable and practical than trying to carry a young child on your shoulders or piggy back while hiking through the forest. I would highly recommend this product to dads (or moms) who want to enjoy hiking with their young child.

    Rated4out of5byfromCool concept but needs perfectingWe took this on several 1-3 mile hikes with our 2 older kids and our two toddlers (4 1/2 and 3). We were able to switch out the 2 younger ones on the carrier, but the older one weighing 40 pounds got very heavy quickly because all the weight is resting on your shoulders. I hope to rig the metal bar so it rests on a lumbar belt (not included) more than the shoulder straps. This is great for shorter distances like at a farmer's market or parade but not ideal for long hikes. Our kids loved feeling like they were "free" and able to see everything we could see. Be sure to tell them to duck under low-hanging branches!

    Rated1out of5byfromGood Idea But Extremely UncomfortableWe recently purchases the carrier with the hopes that it would give my four year old a bit of a break on longer hikes but were extremely dissapointed in our test hike to soccer practice and back. We are both in good physical condition but this pack was a burden to carry. I'm 5'6" but no matter how I adjusted the straps, my kids shoes still rubbed uncomfortably. The biggest drawback is that the system has no hip support. All of your toddlers weight is on your shoulders and the straps aren't all that padded. My husband is 6' and he concurred that it wouldn't be comfortable to carry her more than 1km or so. Also, it took both of us to get our kid harnessed.
