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.

Comments about Shimano Dura-Ace WH-9000-C24-CL Wheelset:
After more than 500 miles and 3 Century rides, I am ready to review these Dura-Ace 9000 wheel set.
These are one of the lightest (if not the lightest) production wheels you can purchase. They are a fantastic value.
I installed them on a 10-speed Ultegra Drive-train using the special cassette spacer Shimano provides you in the wheel set box for 10-speed. These wheels are for 10 and 11 speed drive trains only. I pared them with a Dura-Ace 12-28 Cassette, Dura-Ace chain, Specialized Ultra-Light Pre-Talc tubes, and Continental 4000 RED tires (700 x 23). These wheels are as light as light can get.
The Performance has been remarkable. I never expected them to be this great. They replaced two sets of wheels: DT Swiss 3.0 (Specialized OEM)(DT Swiss felt dead in comparison to DA 9000) and Mavic Ksyrium SLR (Mavic's are fast, but not as fast and light as Dura Ace 9000.)
My MPH improvement with the DA 9000 C 24, measured on a similar street course—(these are of course estimates): Over 1.25 MPH improvement compared to DT Swiss 3.0. Over .5 MPH improvement compared to Mavic.
The acceleration from 0 MPH with DA 9000 is impressive; you will be first out of the gate. I am now a hill climb leader. I pass on the hill but seldom am I passed. Last weekend someone passed me, and when I caught him at the next light, I saw that he had DA 9000 C24 on his bike too.
Can't tell yet how they will hold up on the long run yet, but they were true out of the box from Malaysia and still look and perform new after 500 miles.
Stability is excellent on 700 x 23 c because Shimano engineered the rear wheel so that the tire sits lower in the rim spreading the tread surface to allow for more road contact. In other words—a 23 c tire performs like a 25 c tire on these rims with no felt rolling resistance at 110 PSI. .
I have encountered one problem with these wheels: The group I normally ride with is angry because they can't keep pace with me any longer, so I am riding alone more often these days.
I took these wheels to Lake Tahoe a couple of weeks ago for the big 3500 cyclist ride around the lake (72 miles) and I was passing ZIPPS, Cosmics, tons of other Mavics, & Reynolds. Now it could have been the riders or their bikes dragging them, but I had a personal record-breaking performance and a giant smile crossing the finish line, so I as happy as can be. I can't wait to take these wheels to the next event.
PS: Wheels come with 2 Shimano Wheelbags, Dura-Ace Skewers, special DA 9000 spoke wrenches, and a Spacer Adapter for 10 speed bike cassettes.
