    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.

    Eagle Creek Switchback 22 Wheeled Convertible Luggage - 22" is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not so happy I'm disappointed that there's only one set of straps - this makes things a lot more complicated and time consuming to switch back and forth. The reason why I considered this bag was versatility but this configuration make things not as practical. Also, the main bag and the removable sac held together makes it too bulky to carry for someone my size - almost makes me lose my balance, unless I lean forward. There's an option to carry the removable sac in front, but I just don't want to walk around like that. Also, I would also like to see more colors in the future iterations.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A bit disappointed I had a previous version of the switchback which after two major trip the zipper was ripping from the seam. Got this new version and I have to say I am majorly disappointed that the straps from the main bag are detachable to put on the small backpack. My old version the detachable pack had it's own straps. This is means when having to re-check bags to customs I have to now, remove the straps, zip the day pack to the main bag (or slide over the handle) put the straps on the main compartment then carry the entire thing on my back to handle my two checked luggage- this equals a lot of time being wasted to catch another flight. I do like the new pockets on the front of the main compartment, but would still like a pocket in the inside, like in the previous version (to put small items that can be pilfered). I also like the re-worked backpack. I'd recommend this once it's re-worked and more practical. I would have gotten the REI version but it doesn't fit a 15" laptop.
