    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.

    by fromCheap You get what you pay for. It bends real easy. No long enough to use in a Backcountry Meal pouch. You would be lucky to slice butter with the "knife edge". The fork tines bend easily. Just not impressed. I would recommend spending a few more dollars on a more durable utensil. It is lightweight and packs easily.

    by fromBreaks Easily I brought this fork on an overnight trip up Whitney and it broke the first night. (Thankfully my friends had extra utensils or else I would have eaten with my hands. Not that that'd be the end of the world.) In all fairness I did (accidentally) press on the middle of the fork somewhat hard when I was reaching for something else in my pack, but still. I expected it to be durable and it wasn't. I thought this was a cool spork when I bought it. And I still do. Really, it works just fine for eating. It's just not durable at all. For that reason I recommend against taking this backpacking.

    by frominconvenient to hold short handle This came with my light my fire bowl/cup set. I wanted to like this spork but found that I get my hands dirty when eating with this, especially when I use both the spork and spoon side in one meal. It's difficult to hold the short handle without touching the spork/spoon ends.

    by fromClever but not durable. The design is clever although the serrated knife section is worthless. The fork is much better for eating noodles than most sporks and I eat a lot of ramen. The real down side to these is they tend to break unpredictably and at the worst possible times. I like them for car camping because I can always have a couple of spares however think I'd choose something more durable for backpacking or anytime I had to rely on having just one.

    by fromLook genius? Yes. Useful? Not quite. The design looks genius with many colors. But I think it's mostly gimmick: - Spoon is too shallow, almost impossible to carry soup - Cannot comfortably and securely holding the spoon, you will always find your fingers in very awkward position - Melt slightly: I used it to cook/stir soup. After a few times, the spoon deformed - Knife is a nice-to-have, but you should have another knife to do the job. I think the majority use right hand for spoon, so why the knife designed to point to the majority? Yes it is cheap and mine has not break yet even I use it to scoop ice cream. But I guess it will break quite easily if I am careless enough. If you use it quite often, I would suggest getting a normal spoon + fork for comfort and long lasting. If it is just for a few times, I would prefer dine-out utensils than this. Those utensils made by paper and corn are more sturdier than this and they are compostable too.

    by fromSnapped in half! I bought one of these because a friend had one and I liked the serrated edge along the fork part- not a feature on your typical spork. Unfortunately, I was trying to cut a soft piece of banana bread (!), and the tool snapped in half. This tool is definitely not durable. I'd suggest it for car camping, but I'm not sure it would stand up to that, either. Also, the handle was a little short for my hand. I felt like I was always maneuvering around the end of the tool that I wasn't using. I wouldn't buy this again, especially now that I've read the reviews to know that I'm not alone with the breakage issue. Cute idea, poor execution.

    by fromWorks fine until it breaks (it will) I use this product for backpacking trips, where I do not want the extra weight/bulk of a full flatware set. It works fine for what it is supposed to do, though it is not durable at all. I've probably snapped 3 of these in the last couple years, 2 of them just trying to clean them. That and the fork end can get a bit warped if you do any sort of cooking with it. Good thing they are fairly inexpensive. I will probably be switching to a Ti spork soon though. It is not much fun eating with a 1/2 length spoon or fork for half of a trip.

    by fromNot durable enough, but light and cheap I had this item, used it about 30-40 times at work because it's a decent design and easily cleaned by hand by rinsing under the sink for 3 seconds, and of course reusable .then gently stabbed some food one day and SNAP, it broke right in half in the middle. So that was the end of this item for me. I also sort of wish it was a true "spork" instead of a 2-sided spoon/fork, because then half the time you're eating your meal and need to flip it around to use the other end, you won't end up getting food all over your hand. The knife is not really good for anything besides slicing through butter or soft cheese, but hey it's there so I guess better than nothing. Good for using once or twice, say your family is going camping for the weekend and you need several to use over the course of a few days, then this is a good solution unless one is broken like mine or lost. At least, good if you bring a spare per group of 4-5 people. Lightweight for sure.
