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 fromGreat carry on I've been using this bag while traveling for the past 5 weeks on planes and trains. This bag is easy to pack; lots of great compartments including one for a laptop. The wheels seem sturdy and work well on carpet, smooth floors, and even cobblestones.

by fromFits everything and more! I'm a chronic over-packer, and this fit absolutely everything I wanted to bring on a recent 6-day trip, and still had room to fit a few things purchased along the way. The many zippered interior compartments actually make packing much more efficient. I also love the handle on the bottom for easy stowing in the overhead bin. My only concerns are that the main zipper and the telescoping handle might not be as durable for the long haul as they could be, but that remains to be seen.

by fromPerfect bag for airline travel I did a fair amount of research and shopping around before deciding on REI's Sport Beast to replace a 10 year-old bag. This bag has just the right amount of accessories and structure without going overboard. The zippered interal sections are perfect for organization. Two outer pockets make access to a jacket or shaving kit easy when on the move or going through security without openning the bag. These are a very nice feature. The rigid back kept 3 bottles of wine safe when checked from Europe home and I still had room for all my items - and it fits into the overhead if you decide not to check it. So far I've only made one week long trip with the bag, but it held what I needed for the week, plus has sturdy wheels and carrying system and looks great.

by fromNot too elaborate, not too simple.... just right! This is my first carry on bag. I wanted light, durable, not too many gadgets and pockets, backpack straps wasting weight and space. I was surprised how much I could fit into this small bag. The shell on the back provides good scrape protection on escalators, stairs, and curbs and also helps hold the shape. Nice to avoid those pesky airline baggage fees too. My wife has accumulated three carry-on bags over the years and now she likes mine the best.

by fromGreat carry-on case The recent trend in carry-on bags has been to put four small swivel casters on instead of wheels. This mistaken design takes about two inches off the bottom of a bag and if you're walking quickly through an airport makes pulling it a challenge. Thankfully this beast of a case from REI has two wheels, set well outboard making it very pull-able over almost any surface you're likely to encounter. At first glance the case looks small, but after a recent 10-day business trip I found there's more than enough room for my needs. It's very lightweight, the red color stands out so you won't lose it on a carousel if you have to check it, and seems like it will be sturdy enough. My only gripe is the pouch for the briefcase hook (itself nicely designed) needs a zipper - the velcro isn't up to the job placed where it is. I'd also like to see less space taken up for the handle. I'd ding it half a star for those quibbles, but all in all an excellent case.
