    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 Hotshot 2W SL USB Rear Bike Light is rated 3.6667 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light, very convenient. I've been using this light all summer on twisty backcountry WNC roads and the Blue Ridge Parkway, usually in the middle of the day. I can tell by the braking noises that cars see me with plenty of time to slow down/avoid me. The ease of re-charging with a USB cable is a real plus. It is far superior to my previous, replaceable battery operated tail light, in convenience and brightness.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I did a lot of research about the top rated rear safety light before narrowing my choices down to the Cygolite Hotshot and the Serfas Thunderbolt. They both get excellent reviews but the Thunderbolt is $10 more. I couldn't make up my mind, so I actually purchased both. When I got home, I decided to test them out and see which one I liked better. I placed both of them side-by-side on a fence in the bright, direct, afternoon sunlight and put them in the brightest flash mode. I stood back about 25 feet away and it was immediately evident that the Thunderbolt was far brighter and more visible. It wasn't even close. I was actually quite surprised that the Hotshot looked so weak, considering the great reviews it gets but I am so glad that I purchased both and did this comparison. I will be returning the Hotshot and keeping the Thunderbolt.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mediocre Mount, Lost Light Altogether Bought this two months ago and it is already out of my possession. The mount loosens from your seatpost and does not have adequate locking mechanisms. I ride a lot of bumpy streets while commuting. Poor customer service from the company. It is extremely bright, but what good is it if it falls off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Bright This light has a narrower beam than some. This focuses the light into a very bright light stream behind the bike. I do not like to ride behind my wife when she has this light on. It is just perfect to make sure you are noticed. It seems to be good for both day and night riding. I have tired several other rear lights and this is the best of them. I strongly recommend this light. It is not expensive and it works well!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light for all around use! Great light and very good value/function ratio. This light is extremely visible, and has multiple modes for different types of rides. For the early morning/late night commuter it has bright quick flashes, and for the highway tourer it has a constant on, or nearly constant on (BRIGHT-fade-dark-BRIGHT) mode. USB charging is awesome and works on your Garmin adapter & cable, or even with an Apple Ipod/iPhone "cube". Easily lasts for a whole day of riding or multiple commute days. Only con is that if you are riding with others you may want to stay to the back because it's 2W beam is pretty darned bright!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Neat product! It's great that there are varying beams that can be deployed. Also this is the first USB recharge device I've ever used - that's neat! One caution: it's so easy to use that you need to remember to look at your bike at the end of the ride to turn it off.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not waterproof I bought this light because it is ridiculously bright. Unfortunately, the USB charging is a weakness, because the cover doesn't adequately protect the charging port. The light stopped working after one ride in the rain. This is a required feature for a commuting bike light. I'm glad REI has a great return policy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ideal tail light Because it's USB-rechargeable, I can keep it charged with my Solio solar panel in an emergency.
