    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.

    by fromBrilliant! I purchased this as a package with the Nightrider 700 headlamp. I commute 12 miles round trip most days, often returning well after dark along unlit country roads and urban streets. This light combo makes a significant difference in the way auto drivers treat me: they pass (even in daylight) with wide margins and see me coming. By night I see very clearly. I am very pleased with my purchase!

    by fromBright, Light and Rechargeable Too bad REI did not carry this when I was looking for a new tail flasher. I've had my Solas almost a full season now and I think it is the brightest tail flasher I've owned. My previous benchmark was a Cateye that had a lot of flashing LEDs and the Solas is brighter, lighter and rechargeable. The only complaint is the lack of secure mounting options for this tail light. But I'm sure some creative methods can be found. I have yet to max the run time for the Solas and that includes using it in the first flash mode for over 3 hours. The light is bright enough to be seen in full daylight, so it is ideal for urban commuting. Being rechargeable via a USB connection is a real plus as well: you can connect it to your computer at work or use a cell phone charger with a micro-USB connection to recharge the light before you ride back home. Recharge seems pretty quick, but the exact time will depend on how much the battery is drained. Extremely light weight, the light can be clipped to clothing for runners, to your backpack hydration unit or, with a little ingenuity, to your helmet. I only wish there was a mount for the back of rear carrier, but I imagine one could be developed by a handy home user. Excellent for commuter or urban riding in general. Great for runners or even as an emergency beacon for outdoor adventure.
