    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.

    The iconic landmarks in America’s national parks draw millions of visitors each year. Everyone wants to see Yosemite’s Half Dome and Yellowstone’s Old Faithful. But what people often don’t realize is that near these natural wonders you’ll find hidden treasures—if you know where to look. This one-of-a-kind insider’s guide reveals extraordinary sites and experiences away from the crowds in America’s favorite national parks, most only steps from the beaten path.

    Discover how to avoid the sunrise gawkers at Acadia’s Cadillac Mountain (go at sunset instead); how to enjoy Glacier’s jagged-peaked scenery in quiet (rent a canoe or kayak and strike out onto a lake); which pullout to take along the loop road at Petrified Forest’s Billings Gap to best appreciate its otherworldly landscape (the fourth); and hundreds more secrets and tips throughout the book.
