    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.

    CygoLite ExpiliOn 680 USB Front Bike Lightis rated4.6out of5by5.
    Rated5out of5byfromBuy This Light!I am always hesitant to spend too much money on a bike product because you can just spend and spend. I was also hesitant because my last light popped apart. I hit a bump and the front part of the light, including the bulb, fell onto the road and rolled right into a drain in the road and I never saw it again. :) As the other reviews said, this light is excellent. Super bright, which also lets the cars approaching you from the rear to see you better - they see the bright beam rather than just seeing the tail light. The light feels very durable. Although there are lights out there that weigh less (this is still fairly light) they often feel more plasticky and definitely fall apart faster. This light is also a snap to install - five minutes. One other nice feature is that it holds its charge for a long time. I use it sporadically, maybe once a week at times when I am traveling and cannot ride (plus I mostly ride in the day time). You would expect the light to be dead, but the charge is strong the next time I use it. Very impressed with that. I have had it for about four months. It was the best safety investment I could make. I am not comfortable riding on South Florida streets with a dim headlight at high traffic times. At busy intersections, I prefer to get the oncoming drivers' attention so they give me some space (instead of turning right in front of me because they do not notice me). I would recommend this to everyone and have done so with all my riding buddies.

    Rated5out of5byfromExcellent lightI have used Planet Bike one and two watt lights which I liked, but I wanted something brighter. I was hesitant about rechargeable lights because of short run times and some are not rain resistant. With the 680 on medium I have 3 hours of bright light on the darkest streets and bike paths while riding at 15 mph. I really like the steady pulse mode which gives a steady and pulse light at the same time. There are 8 modes including a very bright pulse for daytime use. The light is water resistant and the battery stick can be exchanged in seconds for another one, available through the manufacturer website.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat for commuting in total darknessA good portion of my commute goes on trail or street that is surrounded by tall trees and does not have street lights. My department store bike light did not provide enough visibility on the trail to ride at a decent speed. The medium setting on this light is more than adequate for this, and the high and "boost" settings are even brighter. Reflective street signs shine over a block away. I consider this money well spent.
