    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.

    Softride Dura 4-Bike Hitch Rack is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Provides great access to back of van I bought this to mount on my minivan, which I use as a camping vehicle. I wanted to bring my bikes with me when on camping trips, and I wanted to have easy access to the hatch opening in the back of the van when I stopped for the night. This is a solid and quiet rack that provides excellent back door access very easily. I've only used it to carry 2 bikes at a time so far, which will be my usual use. Quality seems excellent.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very solid and reliable. I'm very happy. I did a lot of research before buying this and I'm very happy with the results. Less money than the competitors and I think a better design. After buying this, we took 2 bikes on a 2500 miles trip through 3 national parks including some dirt roads. It was very steady and solid the whole the whole time, no problems. The swing down feature worked great. I really like the bike rack a lot. A couple issues: this is a heavy duty rack although I think it weighs less than the competitors. It takes some muscle to push the mast back to vertical with 2 bikes on it, of course it would take even more with 4 bikes. After using it, I began to understand the need for the model with the hydraulic assist! I'm a healthy 6 ft tall 170 lb man. If you're a 120 lb woman, expect problems with this part. Note that the horizontal bars that actually hold the bikes are very hard to slide into their sockets the first few times but it gets a lot better. A plastic bushing at the exit hole for that bar broke off the first time I shoved it in. Not so good. I emailed the company for a replacement and never heard from them (customer service at DuraSoft is terrible). I think the lock that goes into the trailer hitch is pretty good. The cable that lets you lock the bikes to the rack is not adequate, get some more cables and locks so you can lock the wheels and the frames and try to get a trailer hitch that has an opening you can loop a cable through.
