    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 fromVery poor wattage I just bought a Yeti 400 and Boulder 30 watt. Set the solar panel in direct sunlight mid day sun, here in Moab, UT with not a cloud in the sky. The very best I could do was 10 watts. Not even close to 30 watts. Why is that????? Might have to return it tomorrow if I can't get a quick and responsible reply

    by fromPoor Performance Bought this for my Yeti 400 and before I brought multi panels I wanted to give this a test run. My yeti was about 60% charged and right before I used the solar panel I plugged it into the wall and the input was 65 Watts on a 72 watt max, so I know the charge was needed. I placed it directly in the sun at the correct angle that was recommended. There were no clouds in the sky and no trees blocking the sun and it was about a 73 degree beautiful day. The most input I could get is 5 watts. This is suppose to be a 30 watt panel, but the only 30 watts this will see is if I hooked it up to jumper cables.

    by fromThis solar panel defines durable Last weekend, I was setting up solar panels in my backyard. The weather forecast is calling for sun for the entire week. I have been looking forward for the weather to clear up so I can run the Yeti 400 to check its capabilities. While I was setting up a couple boulder 30 solar panels a large metal flashlight that was left on a shelf above the solar panels rolled out and fell. I herd the flashlight hit the front of one of the panels. It made a loud noise, I thought the glass panel had broken for sure. I still cannot find even a mark where it hit. It is the middle of the week and the boulder 30 solar panels are still supplying the Yeti 400 with plenty of wattage to top it off as Texas keeps it supplied with sun shine. I have three Yeti 400's, and one Yeti 1250 keeping any consumption satisfied. I will invest in more boulder 30 solar panels. Oh by the way it is time to get rid of the old flash light and get some torch 250's.
