    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 fromNice Rack :) I was looking for a basket for my Santa Fe and was going to go with a Yakima (I already owned a Yakima hitch mount bike rack). I was bemoaning the fact that I still had to buy the bike mount hardware at my local bike shop when the owner recommended the Kuat. It's a great basket and having two built in fork mounts made the purchase decision a no brainer. Installation was easy. I bought a cable and a padlock to secure the basket to the roof rail and I use cable locks I already own to secure the bikes to the rack. Kuat does make a new and improved version with built in cable and mount locks called the VagabondX. All in all for the money it's hard to beat this rack.
