    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 Gloves I used these gloves to climb wright peak in the Adirondacks. The fit was good and kept my hands warm. It was early February and the temp was 7F at the trailhead.

    by fromGreat for Extreme Cold I asked the REI expert to show me the warmest, most expensive gloves they sell. She pointed to these right away and said I could spend more on North Face but they wouldn't be as dependable. I am really glad I bought these because this weekend I went camping in 5F winter weather and these gloves kept my hands toasty warm. The liners themselves are great while you are more active and the shells warm up within minutes. I have always been failed by gloves until this pair.
