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 fromau contraire I took one of these bars to the North Cascades July 2014. I'm glad I only took one. It tasted terrible. I think it was the worst tasting bar I've ever eaten, and I've had more than my share. I had a couple more at home that went in the garbage.

by fromSo delicious These things make me wonder how I ever choked any other bar down :-) Pretty much nothing tastes better on a hard run/hike, and they give a big energy boost. I've been a loyal Picky Bar fan since they came on the market and couldn't be happier to see them in REI!

by fromBooyah! Hands down, the best bar out there. Tastes great. Not gritty like some of the other brands. I've eaten these before, during, and after workouts/races, and haven't had any problems.

by fromBest Bars - Amazing Taste and Nutrition I've been boasting about these bars for over a year now and am so happy REI is carrying them! These bars are excellent when out on a long run - they don't hit your stomach hard like gels and are much easier to chew/digest than other energy bars I have tried. The packaging is easy to open while running. The bars are also great for a pre-exercise bite. The nutritional balance in them is spot on and give a nice boost without a quick sugar crash. And they taste amazing- my favorite flavors are Smooth Caffeinator and Lauren's Mega Nuts - all are great though! Picky Bars for picky eaters!

by fromHelps get me out the door! I seem to always be training for the next big run, and the 50-60+ miles/week means a lot of time on the trails. One bar 15-minutes before the run helps top off my "tank", they travel well, and a another bar 3 - 4 hours into a run helps keep me going. Also great for hikes and as a treat when backpacking.

by fromThe very best energy bar yet I have never tasted an energy bar this good before. I purchased the 'blueberry boomdizzle' flavor. The 'runner's high' flavor is identical, I believe. Just got these from REI mail order and they are nutritious, so delicious, and have a 2015 expiration date(fresh product). They are neither too sweet nor too tart, absolutely perfect. I find them useful for hikes, snacks at work when I'm too busy for lunch, pre or post runs, cycling and just a good, convienient snack anytime. I will be buying these for a long time to come!
